Not so sure about mechanical shutters. 

Not so sure about Pixel Interpolation not that you would ever need 16 Mpixel pics. 

Moving mixtures are only at 0.3 Mp so 16 Mp seems silly.  2 - 3 Mp is fine for stills.

Best to Google to find real user comments.

I think I would buy a High Def Video Camera..vastly more expensive though.   

Great thing about them is that you can select 2 MPixels stills from the video 'footage'.   Capture nearly perfect shots.

Now what SD card do you think we should get? 2 gb, 4 gb, 8 gb, or 16 gb? We'll be on vacation for 5 or 6 days and won't be anywhere near a computer so we don't wanna run out of space for our pictures/videos. If we do run out we could put a few on my microSD card I have for my cell phone I guess, since we have a thing it plugs into to be a SD size. I think it would work.

Does anyone know how many pictures each card holds? and how many hour off video each card will hold?



Neverminds haha

We want to update our old video camera. Because its over 6 years old and we don't really like the MiniDV tapes haha.

Plus, the one I showed you all runs on AA batteries, a big plus since we have over 100 rechargeable AA batteries.

Thanks

You thought that was cheap Neil? Check that one out. Haha. The guy sells them all the time. And no one has complained yet. Most don't go for .99 of course haha, but they have gone anywhere from 30 -- 60 dollars. This one ends around 1 in the morning so I think we're gonna bid on it. Beacuse I think it will go cheaper then any other one.

We got it today. We are still waiting on the card for it to get here. If it ain't here tomorrow it is completely useless for us for vacation. We're still waiting for the card for our old camera to get here so we can use that to take more pictures then 30 and have to put it on the computer.

Its funny. Dad didn't beilve me when I said it will be the size of our regular camera haha.

Yup, the card didn't come. Video Camera is competely useless. oh well. It stupid though. THe card was coming from the same state we are (got it so it would be here on time we even hadda pay tax haha). But its stupid also. The seller isn't part of ebay anymore (a few days after we purchased). And well we'll see.
