Try using it for what it was designed for.


I did. It's designed for still *and* movies.

I agree with everyone saying that a still camera is *mainly* intented for
still pictures, while a camcorder is mainly designed for movies.So none does
both in excellence.My digital still camera (Kodak CX 7300) only takes silent
video and worse than an 1981 camcorder, but this never bothers me as it's
quite sympathetic even that bad video for my cousins in Canada, to see my
sister's fiancee brother playing the piano.For *real*movies I have the 8mm
Sony CCD-TR425E pal which is even today excellent.Of course it's no good for
overseas relatives since VCRs in USA and Canada don't playback PAL cassetes,
I asked'em.

... whereas your relatives anywhere in the world /could/ most likely view
the .MOV files produced by today's digital cameras. Cameras like the
Nikon 8400 can produce 640 x 480 pixel movies at 30 fps, probably at least
as good as your 1981 camcorder, with added benefit of electronic image
stabilisation.

Some of the newer digital cameras make excellent short videos. You
might check out the Kodak C330, which does full motion VGA video an
allows many options while shooting. Or go with the P850 which does
great stills, and great video. If you don't want to carry both types of
camera around, the ability to do good video and stills in one camera is
a nice feature.

I think you didn't read my post?I say I have a digital camera, Kodak CX
7300, which produces acceptable videos at 640 X 480 @ 30 fps, which is more
convenient than buying a standalone DVD recorder or upgrading my PC (again)
so that I can burn DVDs....The VHS format has died so no question of making
cassetes.
