I have an aging sony camera at work and would like to add another one but which is more compact.

The main feature that I use is still picture with a sound file attached - it comes up as an mpeg - it allows me to attend trade fairs and record details of a product along with the picture.

The Sony ones that I have looked at only now seem to do sound with mini movies which means big picture files etc.

Is anyone still making cameras with this feature not bothered which brand

Page,

MY Fuji S5100 has a 30 second voicememo function, which is saved as a .wav file. The S5100 is a great camera, but it is not a compact.

the Casio exz750 is what you want. Small , small, small and you can have 30" sound for every snap or if you prefere you can add a sound to the picture hour after when you rest in your hotel room as I do.

The Canon A510 can also record a sound message with a picture. You can record up to 60 seconds in a wave format on images you view in playback.

How does the WAV file work?

Is it attached to the photo in some way or do you locate the photo and then seperately locate the WAV file?

The aging Sony that I have stores a picture at the resolution taken and then a seperate MPEG at low resolution with the sound attached for easy on screen viewing/listening.

I don't know how the WAVE file works, sorry. You might try going to the Canon homepage at http://www.usa.canon.com and check there. They have a support area which is helpful or you can send them an email.
