    I bought it when it came out for 475 at Circuity City in Eatentown.

    I am very satisfied with the camera.

    They are currently available for much less.

    The cheapest I've been seeing them is for $299 off Amazon. How is the video quality?

    I've heard that the video quality is pretty good on the S5, but this is all hearsay in this case.

    I saw a video on YouTube of what looked like pretty good quality at a Deep Purple Concert. If I got it, what size memory card would/should I get?

    If you plan to shoot a lot of videos, get at least 4gb, perhaps 8gb.

    I have a S5 IS. I paid $304 for mine.
    Video quality is great!
    Great camera in general.

    If you plan to shoot a lot of video, get a SDHC memory card 8gig.

    Where did you buy it, online, or at a store? Ah, I can't go today to Best Buy to look at them, so I have to wait until Thursday! :(
