Best Video

The best video is still a camcorder using video tape.

Digital cameras treat video as an after-thought.
They add it to the camera because it is inexpensive to do.

So far, only one digital camera has been designed to be a combination camera (still photos and video).

The Canon TX1.

But it will cost you closer to $500.

Here is a link to the specifications:

Perhaps you will tell us what form factor you have in mind.

An example camera model would be helpful.
