I use my TX1 frequently to catch some short action moments while spending time with family members. Zooms while recording. Excellent for outdoors in good light.

So do I. And the long reach and autofocus of the zoom makes it useful for grandchildrens' hockey games, where the small lens can poke through the chain link safety netting. Although a lot of folk don't like the Motion JPEG format of its video, with today's relatively cheap, higher capacity SDHC cards, I find it convenient to catch passable postcard size stills of fast moving crowds, kids, etc. by stepping frame by frame through the video clips. Its like a 30 fps burst mode.
