I planning to buy a new 3MP digital camera for the first time. I have shortlisted these two.
Kodak 7430 and Panasonic lumix LC50.
My requirements are
1) Good picture quality
2) Compact with AA battery
3) Unlimited movie with sound
Initally I thought of buying LC50. But I now I came across Kodak which can store VGA ( QVGA also ) movie in Mpeg4 format. But LC50 can store movies only in 320x240 format in Quicktime format, I guess. So I presume Kodak should be able to store movies for more time, if we are using the same resolution , since Kodak uses Mpeg-4 format.
Does the resolution change ( VGA to QVGA ) make big difference while playing back in TV?. Because I know all VCDs are around QVGA and produces resonably good clarity in TV. Can I play back movies directly to TV from the camera using the A/V cable?
Do you have any experience with these two cameras?. If will be a great help to me if you can share it.
Any help is appreciated!
