I need aDigicam (not the $4,000 type); maybe the $450 type. I work traffic accidents and need a digital cam for static pixs of vehicles (usually in a wrecker yard). Image stabilizer is important. But I also need to video the scene and then do video of the roadapproach to the scene of the accident. I needabout 30 minutes of video time.And I want all that in "one" camera. Suggestions most appreciated.

Jim

I like the Canon A650IS. A good size (not too big or too small), very good picture quality, nice video.

Thanks Andy - my online research keeps taking me back to Cannon... I had not looked at the A65 OIS. I have found on eBay a used Cannon Powershot S5 SI, which I'm bidding on. I hold at no more than $225 so I'll probably no get it. I will check out your suggestion on the A65 OIS.

Thanks, Jim

Yea I finally figured that outafter about 20 minutes of searching A65 OIS :?

You were correct as to the A650 IS being a good little camera. It's looks to be about right for my needs and budget.

Thanks :bye:
