Hey y'all....

We needed a new digicam and a new camcorder.

I looked at hybrid camcorders (Sony DSC-M1 and M2) but was told by the Canon folks that my new my newly ordered Powershot SD 500 can easily handle lots of video time. I know a lot depends on memory, so ordering a gig card or so is not a problem.

We use video for max 5 minutes at a time, except for my 8 yr old recitals (then about 10-15 minutes or so)


Thanks so much!!

With a 2GB card and at max rez which is 640x480 the SD500 can capture about 16 mintues and change. That is with a 2 Gig card though.
