Digicams that also take video - recommendations?

Discussion in 'Australia Photography' started by Alex Van Starrex, Sep 9, 2003.

  1. I know a dedicated video camera would be better, but I don't (intend to use)
    video too often.

    I'd like to know if there are digicamera that take reasonable quality video
    (with sound) - and to what length (dependant upon memory cards).

    maybe the other way around video cameras that take stills panasonic
    MX500 3CCD 3mp stills either to tape or sd cards.

    If you don't want to get specific with actual cameras, a specific model
    in a specific megapixel range, than go sony. Any sony video camera will
    have the ability to record as long as the memory stick still has
    capacity, with audio. I think it's 320x240 resolution for this - which
    is still ok by digital still standards. If you want these results with
    640x480 resolution, the Fuji s602 is a nice camera and has dropped in
    price due to the release of its successor.

    What you are asking for is mutually exclusive on all but foveon sensors IF,
    you expect to get quality images and movies. There are not many makers using
    these sensors so you might be faced with a heafty price to get what you
    want.

    Sorry snaps, but the only camera that uses Foveon is the Sigma SD9, a camera
    that does not have a movie mode!

    None the less, The foveon sensor is the only currently available sensor
    which can do both still and video with any degree of resolution and not
    sacrifice the quality of one for the other. I didn't say I knew of a camera
    just pointed out the clinical aspects of the situation.
