I have a Canon G7. Love it, for the most part.

What I'm especially happy with is the 1024x768 video it will record, although is only 15fps, it's pretty good. Very clear, detailedvideo.

I'm looking to be able to use the monitor output (such as to a TV) in real-time, but I can't seem to do it with this camera.

Is there any camera that support this feature? Any that will do it with 1024x768 resolution?

I use an Archos 504 recorder for doing in-car recording during Autocross. I use the Archos hemlet cam, but the quality is dismal, at best. If I can find a camera that will real-time output the video to the Archos, I think I'll be able to get better video quality.

Here's a sample taken by theArchos and Helmet cam. Thequality is dismal to start with, and worse after compressing. Vertical light poles strobe red and blue...

Right click and full-screen...


Here's a sample taken by the CanonG7 at 1024x768 originally, and then HEAVILY compressed to 720x 480. The detail of the original video was amazing...
