Panasonic would probably be the best. In my experience Fuji the worst. Its generally the case that the better the quality of the sensor in the camera then the more pruple fringing (chromatic abberations) you get. It's probably the one annoying trade-off for having good IQ..
You're correct in that it occurs in high contrast situations where dark areas meet bright areas. It can be dealt with in Photoshop etc if you are enlarging and need to remove excessive CA. Its generally OK to leave it if you're printing small sizes...
I have a customer who takes videos with her digital camera. She getsblooming (or purple fringing, I'm not sure which it is) when she istaking videos (or even single pictures) of the interior of a homewhen she is shooting near a window. She also gets the samepink/purple stripe sometimes outside..
I get the pink/purple stipe in some sunlit situations on the lcd but this has no impact on the image. I think I read that this is normal but I'm not sure if that applies just to certain Canon P&Ss or all P&S lcds...

I don't think this is an LCD but an exposure issue. It's definetely CA (purple fringing). It happens to some degree in all compact cameras because the small sensors and lenses cannot deal with such high contrast situations...

Sorry, I forgot to mention - we are using her videos on her web site. I tried working with one of the first ones, but it was too many frames and I couldn't get my video program to make that much improvement..
So - Panasonic. I used the 'select a camera' exercise and it came up with a couple Panasonic Lumix models..
Thanks to all that responded - Bea..
The FX-35 will offer you up to 1280 x 720 (30fps) video with image stabilisation as well. I remember someone saying the Sony T Series will allow zooming during video mode, 640 x 480 (30 fps), not too many cameras offer the zooming feature whilst in movie mode so you might want to research a little on this...
