Hi,

I'm looking for a camera and would like to get some recommendations from the forumers here. I would like to get a small camera, preferbly compact/ultra compact, at least 5megapix, with at least 3x optical zoom. Also, average to good video capabilities are a must, with no restrictions on the length of the clips other than the storage media.
I'm not particular with brands so hope to get some recommendations. Thanx in advance.

Umm.... Which one? There's just too many models in the market to choose from.... To me the video capabilities are more important than the photography functions thou i still want some flexibilty eg. manual modes etc.

Ixus 800 IS would be nice.

6.0 megapixels
4x optical zoom
Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS)
ISO 800
Record movies continuously up to a max. of 1 GB or 60mins
Approx. 4x digital zooming while shooting of movies

I recommend the Ixus coz it's sleek and compact.
Would complement an DSLR anytime.

So the video recording is limited to a max of 60 mins irregardless of memory availability?
