Which brand's camera (eg. A95 vs W1) is able to take longer and better quality movie? Is it Canon or Sony?

Hi there,

I did try the movie mode yet, but regarding low ligh focus Sony gets a muchbetter position ( thanks to her high light AF beam ).

According to the specs I see on dpreview.com,

Canon A95: 640 x 480, 10 fps, max 30 sec
Sony W1: VGA (640x480), 8/16/30 fps, unlimited

Clearly the Sony is much better!!!

(On a side note, I don't think the A95 is comparable to the W1; instead, the Canon S60 or SD300 are more comparable)...

A Friend of mine has a Sony W1 and can't use those 30fps on 640x480, the break point will be the "unlimited" time on Sony

Does he have a fast memory card? Usually that's the sticking point...
