Can anyone recommend a good compact digital camera that takes good video?

Bought a HDD camcorder last year and its decided to stop working so instead of getting it repaired i'd prefer to just upgrade my digital camera with one that also takes good video.

Around the £150-£200 area please.

PS I know its not going to be mega amazing for this price but seeing how you can get decent 12MP cameras now for well under £100 there must be some that also do good video footage.

Any pointers will be much appreciated.


Thanks

Is it out of warranty then ??
I would have thought something like that should last for more than a year ??
You might want to check your warranty and your consumer rights ?

Was a refurb from Ebay, still cost me £210 though!

Live and learn.

Just wished i'd gone down this route to start with, then i don't have to carry multiple items.

Like the price of the pentax but it doesn't have optical zoom or the looks of the TZ7.

So out of the TZ's which is the best one............ the TZ7 even though its an older model?

Just found this:

argos.co.uk/sta…htm

So it does shoot HD and at the moment for spending over £100 you get a £20 voucher, is this a better deal than going for a TZ7? Don't mind paying extra just want the best camera with the best Video as well???? oO

Personally I'd have a real good look at the Fuji S2500HD for your needs.
Comprehensive review HERE.

Amazon have this camera for £126 delivered but are temp. o/o/s.
