sry no edit button what i meant to say for the video is that there is no time limit and it records until there is no more space on your storage media. 30fps VGA (640x480 resolution) with sound wouldnt be bad either.

All the Canon point and shoot cameras will record until you run out of room, and they're very good for picture quality.

In my opinion you should go to the store and try out some video shooting 30 sec or so with some cameras whichever you finally selected and see how the video quality should try canon 850 or 950
