"best" what? Price? Low light? Zoom? Resolution? Movie quality? Stil lquality? Features? Ease of editing? size? battery life? screen size? The more you tell us about what you want to do with it the better an answer you will get.

best place to start.

well i want one that can low light. Iwant good quality but ill use it outside more so pretty much all around thanks.

o by the way i have a aiptek mpvr+ but the low light sucks

Look at models with a CCD sensor. Low light performance is slightly better than those with aCMOS sensor.

as oldhacer says:

the bigger the sensor the more light allowed into the hybrid

cmos is the lesser grade, ccd is the more higher grade

ccd cost more and decifers info into the chip while cmos allows a fster filming, thus giving up lack of quality in resolution of crispiness.

Other words no matter whathybrid you are after you are better off going fora digital camera that contains a ccd lens with a bulky body

The Aiptek MPVr is not the Worst hybrid, and the ISpan is not the best one. They both do theirjobs and use differentchips and sensords creating a bigger ball field of who to choose from

cool thanks what modle would u say to get? i found a minidv camcorder its the samsung sc d363 but i donno i like the hybrids

No matter what one it is you're after

location, is the key for me

I live in the states, I decidewhat isin thestore first, tehn if not I then go online, and my last resorta yard sale.

then it is a decision of what is available today, and not what isdelayed.

for example I am in a decision of a digital camera

I preferre olympus,, hear casio, gota great model tht does wonders, andKodaksrealya push ,while canon is the better.

SO I go and try my best to test them out and find the one I wanted is now no longer.

If youare only going to ask what should I get

i say get a aiptek mpvr, or mustek dv3500 those I like

but serious into video go with a professional dvc canon elura 1series or jvc most zoom in optical

now you must supply an answer with a better detail and info thank you.

I am new to the forum and am interested in any advice you can offersince you folks obviously know a lot about hybrid cameras.

I am lookng for a dual purpose hybrid that records to SD. No moving disk or tape. It must record external video/audio from a bullet camera/mic in at least 640x480with 30 fps. I need to record at least 40 minutes at this resolution.

When I am not using this with the bullet cam I would like as good a quality still and camcorder function as possible.

Any suggestions and experiences are appreciated.

These two look interesting but you guys have been studying these much longer than I have.

research, it is a decision hard to make

if the g-spot is the same and has more items i get that, but if it has no optical zoom I get the other.

ulead is a better software, over muvee4

but that's alright you have to sacrafice somewhere

a bullet can will work but you may see what the bullet cam sees if the bulletcam has icons you'll see them, if they are able to turn off then it'll work.
