Camcorders are better at movies, while cameras are better for stills. However, the Canon Powershot S2 IS is probably the best hybrid digicam out there. Dcresource has reviewed it, and Steve is working on his own review. The S2 allows zooming during recording of movies and uses an Ultra Sonic Motor (USM) to drive the lens. The motor is really quiet, which is good for audio recording.

I hope this helps, and otherwise you might have to get both a camera and a camcorder.
