So far I was able to find out that Panasonic makes digital cameras with

unlimited burst mode

so if you start that mode it will fill your card to the max of it's capacity.

I needcamera that I can put on my bike start shooting and go for a ride. So a pic per second would be enough.

Panasonic can get more than one pic per second depending on pic settings.

Let me know if you own camera like that and if when inthis unlimited burst mode itproduces good pictures in at least 2mp setting.

Thanks and keep on shooting...

One shot per second isn't burst mode. Burst mode is 2, 3, 5, even 10 shots per second, and there are many cameras that can do that.

But if you want good 2 MP images during a bicycling tour, you might get better results with a digital camcorder with a high speed shutter. The high speed shutter is necessary to reduce the blurriness that appears in typical video framecaptures.

There are a number of digicams that can do this as well, by setting the video frame rate to 15 fps, or even 10, and just discard the extra shots you don't need. For 1 shot per second, what you need is an intervalometer, or timed shutter, which is available on some digicams.

If you can find one I have the Casio Exilim EX-V8 which does what you ask.

An unlimited burst mode is not unusual. I seem to recall that even the $149 Panasonic LZ-8 has it. Steve just did a review of the LZ-8, that is where you could confirm that.
