    I have been using the same old Kodak DC240 for about 5 years now along with a first generation DV Camcorder, and it is now time to upgrade.

    I am looking for a digital camera that will take about 5 minutes of video as well as produce pictures good enough for 10 x 8 prints.

    After a quick look at the reviews I was left with the following:

    Pentax Optio 550

    Konica Revio KD-500Z

    Canon Powershot S50

    I was then blinded by technobabble:confused: gave up and went for a :smoke:

    Can anyone offer any advice or suggestions, before I end up going to PC World.:suicide:
