I like doing extensive research on electronics before I purchase, but Ive been finding that researching for the best digital camera is an overwhelming task! I want a compact, 6-7 MP camera that takes crisp pictures as noise-free as possible. I also want, in the future, to buy a 720p camcorder that "records" in h.264 (or is it mpeg4?) thats compact. Ive seen the sanyo SD recording 720p camcorder but reviewers say image quality is not decent. Anyway, I think hd cameras are not ready for prime time yet(in a compact form-factor, anyway). so, for the time being, Id like a digital camera that can also shoot videos at acceptable quality (16:9 would be bliss). Does such a camera exist? Any advice on us-based great digital camera forums I should look at? thanks!
