    I am looking for a digital camera that can do good in pictures and
    movie recording, thus remove the need for my family to carry both
    camera and a camcorder all the time.

    Features I am looking for include movie recording of 640 x 480 (or
    more), Auto Focus and allowed Tele Zoom (not optical zoom) during
    movie recording. It would be great if camera is compact size or

    I found canon A720 seem to do that, but further digging told me
    that some expert review it wrongly -- it cannot tele zoom, and cannot
    do Auto Focus during movie recording. The other camera I am looking at
    is Canon TX1, seem very impressive. It just surprises me that with the
    advances in technology today, I still cannot find a simple digital
    camera that can do well in both pictures and movie.

    I would appreciate your advices about the selections of camera out
    there that fit my criteria above.

    Thanks again

    Casio EX-V7 (and EX-V8) will take good quality videos, with tele(do you mean
    digital??) AND optical zoom.
    Auto Focus during movie recording (though fairly slow).
    Take average quality photos, though not excellent.
    Very small and compact!
