Digital Camcorder/still, with flash and light

I have been trying to seach sometime now for a digital camera I can take videos with and also use as a digital still camera, but here is the hard bit, I would like a flash on it for the still photos. I have asked in shops and nobody can help. I can find some with a light on the frond but it doesnt help when trying to take a good quility still photo. I am sure I am not the only person who has thought of this idea. Please help. thankyou

You are looking for a still camera. They have flashes.

Some will take 'videos', but I wouldn't expect the quality to be very high or the video to be very long. Videos need a constant light source. Flashes, for them, would hurt rather than help the video.

I have a sony trv 38 and the "shoe" mount has a pull-back piece that exposes some electornic leads. not sure if that's for power to a mike or to a light or a flash, but it's something to look into. - fj
