Hi,

Does anyone have any example movies from the DSC-H3 ?? or know where any are?

I am thinking about buying one, but would really like a camera with a good movie mode. Also thinking about buying the Sanyo Xacti CG65

many thanks

Ineed-

Without a single doubt the Canon S-3 and the Canon S-5 have the best video clip modes.

Thanks Sarah,

those 2 Canon's look good, but I really should have said I am looking for something really small as well, with a good zoom.

I really like the look of the CG65 and may just sacrifice image quality for the sake of good movie and compact design

thanks

If movies are your top priority, then get a video camera instead of a still picture camera. Most video cameras these days allow you to take pictures as well and even though they are a bit bigger than some of those compact picture cameras, they have more video features and resources. As Sarah suggested, the Canos S3/S5 have great movie capabilities(although I don't care for the Canon brand).

Thanks for the replies guys, I ended up buying a Panasonic TZ3 as video mode was'nt the priority but a nice to have feature. The video mode is very good although the compression is a bit pants(no mp4).
Got the camera Saturday morning and it does seem very good, although I had to take some macro shots and ended up using my 9year old Minolta with a manual focus, maybe I just need to figure out how to take the best macro shots.

It is a shame no one makes a compact with a 10x zoom and the new mp4 video compression yet ....that lets you zoom in movie mode with full sound..... one day it might be a reality :-)
