I work at a place that manufactures high end power gardening tools. We need a camera that has good stabilization and also decent mini video capabilities as it will be taken out into the field a lot- Our guys need to record our clients using the machine, product testing, illustrate problems that have arisen (sp) etc. I will be using it to take photos for our owner's manuals-these are black and white, not high end glossys.

We are looking for a mid-range ($300) point and shoot, that has image stabilization, video capability, decent telephoto option. I am partial to Cannon, but would love any recomendations you can give me, including Kodak, Sony, Nikon... maybe Olympus.

I need to submit ideas by January 22nd!! Any recomendations would be greatly appreciated. If this post sounds choppy, I apologise, wrote another out and the site bombed... must get back to work!! Thank you!!

How about the Canon PowerShot A710IS? I think it meets your needs. Less than $300 online.

Check out the review on this site:

Yeah, sounds like the 710 was made just with you in mind.

I will add that the 710's use of 2 AA batteries will be invaluable to you if different people will be using/passing the camera around in the field.
