hello,

i am a newbie here and i have some questions.

i want to buy a digital camera that :

1.its filming with 640x 480 with 30 fps at least.

2.has the new format mpeg-4 that it films more.

3.takes nice pictures with nice colous for night and day use.

4.has good lenses.

has li-on battery with big life.

i saw the kodak v 570 that it has two lenses but i havent seen a photo from the similar to the fisheye lens.any photos?

i know its not the same as a fisheye but it might be better than others.

i also saw CASIO EXILIM EX-S 600 that it looks good.

or SONY CYBERSHOT DSC-W100

anybody uses any of those cameras?

or can tell me some other models too?

is there any problem if i put a 4 gb sd card on the camera?

any help would be great.

thanks

Only cameras using MPEG4 compression I know are some Kodaks and Casios.


Originally SD's size limit was 1GB which was increased to 2GB but that's not compatible with oldest SD cameras.
4GB is completely incompatible with SD standard and should be actually called as SDHC, only few newest cameras apparently support it.

I think 2GB should work in that Casio and Kodak, older models are listed in here:

Sonys use their own proprietary and expensive memory format and don't have MPEG4 video compression.

It isn't even close to fisheye, just something what I would call as really good wide angle.
