Hi there,

I'm looking for some advice on which hybrid camera to buy for a vaction I'm planning this summer. As this hybrids are pretty small, I'm gonna take the plunge and buy one. I'm more concerned with image quality/image stabilisation over the still shots & mp3 recording functions this camera mostly have added on.

Is there any camera in particular I should seriously consider? A decent enough onboard microphone would be essential also.

Any advice is greatly appreciated! Cheers, seamus

its prefrence .........

welcome aboard

what our members are chating about and he hype may have been at the time and slowed down were

1 mustel dv9300

2ispan ddv920

3 aiptek mpvr

3 major and excellent models

now the new zoom dv6 and Isdv2 are coming out as well as the ddv510/520 as wells as the 12m

take a look at the vid samples, and the topics and lets wait for some members to join in.

I would not rush ino something your not sure

but i recommend 1. or 3. as the no.2 refuses mp3 deletion

I agree with fishycomics' choices. I suspect the models about to arrive on the scene are going to cost more than $200.

The Samsung Miniket is optimized for video use, rather than stills, but unless you find an older model cheap on eBay, it will be more than $200.

the newest MPVr is not going to be higher then 199.99 so it is like under 200.00 :blah:

I remember back in the old site any camera over 200.00 was not allowed in the threads of Mustek.....................

let me ask some questions?

1. do you own a digital camera a major brand?

2. do you own a film camera?

3. and planning to take a desposable camera if on land , and on water?

I would look for a hybrid and make sure I can test it out before on vacation....

I would want 30fps (25fps) and have a lot of features I understand.

I would make sure I have enough battery power 3 batteries , as well as sd cards

I would also have sometype of device, or location so I can upload my video or storage to, incase I run out of space..

now what I would look at again is an asf file type or jpeg movie type, but will run higher in the 200.00 range.

1 mustek dv9300 np-90 batteriies

2 aiptek MPVr- nokia np-59 or 8200 series bateries

both camera only record with batterry 1.5 hrs period!

a AAsystem may be a better choice and I believe there are a few models out ther still accepts them but are harder to find.

hope this helps out a little.
