Default How's the movie mode of the 5700 ?

Hello


Just curious on how's the "movie mode" on this model? I know his shoots great stills even though it's about 2yrs old. Yes it's somewhat important to have it. No we can't get a minicam and a camera at the same time.

By the way I'm looking at a Canon S1 IS , Fuji S7000 , and this Nikon 5700. Thanks for any input on this and suggestions.

I think the S7000 has a much better movie mode. The 5700 is good for laughs but not great quality.

I would not bother with a camera that has video. The real camcorders are a lot better.

Thanks for the input. It doesn't matter about either the 5700 or S7000. I ended up with a Panasonic FZ-10 instead. I've had it for two weeks and haven't even tried the movie mode. Just shooting pictures has been fun with this camera.

the video portion of the 5700 is very good, but the audio portion is very bad since it picks up the sound of the autofocus motor clicking away. I don't recommend it for movies.
