i would like to know if there is any other digicam like Casio EX-Z750 that has mpeg4 video, currently i only know Casio Z750.

i would like to be able to record vga movie @30fps for 1 hour at only 1GB, only mpeg4 is able to achieve this, preferably using SD card and fairly responsive.

thank you.

Hi there,

Casio, Sanyo (C and HD series) and Samsung (i6 nd NV series) are the only models I am sure of that make MPEG-4 video. There are different types of MPEG-4 formats (codecs) used in these digital cameras, which include MP4, MOV (QuickTime) and DIVX (with file extension AVI).

** EDIT: Kodak V and Z series also use MPEG-4 (Quicktime MOV) **

I find that I have to use the best quality (highest bitrate) setting in order to make decent to good VGA (640 X 480) video on my Sanyo C6. At this setting, 1 GB can store 42 minutes of video. If you are aiming for 1 GB = 1 hour, the video may suffer with a lower quality setting.

thank you very much blindsight for the detailed info, i have decided to get panasonic fx-01, eventho it can only fit only 20 minutes of video in a 2gb sd card, i can convert it to rmvb format and the size is only 10% of the .mov format, ie. 2GB will become 200MB.
