Default Movies on Canon A60

I want to buy a digital camera and i have to chose betewn Canon A40 and Canon A60. I know that A60 is an improved version of A40 (better macro mode,manual white balance and 3 minute movies) but A60 records movies with 15fps and A40 with 20fps. I downloaded a film made with A 40 and it looks good (for a digital photo camera). Where can i find movies made with A60 ? I think i'm asking too much if want movies with A40 and A60 with the same thing recorded.....

You'll probably say that if i want movies I can buy a camcoder but i dont have money for that so i'm interested in recording short movie clips with my digital camera (320*240).

Canon A70 is interesting but too expensive for me.

Hi,
first of all, I have to tell you that you really make a good choice with the A60.
I got my A60 on friday and I like it very much!
The macro mode is awesome and all the manual settings of course, too!

Regarding the movie mode with the A60, I can say, that the movies are quiet good!
I tried it once, and the movie looked smooth and quiet good for 320x160 ( is that the resolution the cam provides? i dunno ).

But remember, that digital cameras are not made for recording movies, but for taking wonderful pictures, such as the Canon A60 does!
From that point of view you shouldn't expect too much from the movie mode of any digital camera.
But for some small clips for the PC, the quality of the movies is quiet good!

I haven't found any reviews on the A60 (only user comments).
But two reviews on the A70 have movies made with the A70.
It's 640 x 480 but give you an idea of how 15 fps look like.
(it's a bit choppy. I would love 30 fps like Fuji. But you can't have it all !)

Look for the movie-clips here:
