Are there any camera's out there with a good movie mode that can handle zoom and sound at the same time without using an external microphone?

I guess what i'm asking is why is this so?



Thanks

I'm sure there must be a few. But you would only really want one with a manually operated zoom, so as to not have the interference of the motor.

My Dimage A2 can do this, as can the newer A200. I think the A200 has better resolution for movies too. I notice when I do zoom, the focus takes a moment to adjust, but that's only to be expected. Not a big problem.

I'm sure other members will come up with some later models that can also do this, as my camera model isover a year old now.

Canon S1 IS and S2 IS stick out. They both have stereo sound and an excellent (if short lived lol) movie mode.

Canon S1 is mono. S2 supports stereo sound. But both are good in audio compared to other digital cameras. I mean the quality of audio is far better. Both S1 and S2 has an Ultrasonic motor zoom. They are quite and smooth. Doesn't produce any sound. The camera won't capture the zoom motor sound. So you can use 10X optical zoom in your movie.
