I've been trialing the Sanyo Xacti for a week or so now, but I won't bore you with techie speak. I'll just tell you what it does and link a picture. Movies: MPEG 4 @ 640x480 (tv quality 30fps) with 45 mins to a 1GB SD card. 6 Mega pixel digital camera. Uses SD cards which are quite cheap now. Weatherproof. You get 2 rechagable batteries supplied with it. Excellent anti-shake and noise dampening. Fantastic optical zoom and digital beyond that. A robust metal chassis.SD card or USB connection. It has been getting dammed good reviews.

The photos are great and the movies even better. Did I mention that it is tiny too?
