Compact Digital Camera Under $250 with HD video
I'm looking for a camera as a birthday gift for my mum. I had been looking at the Canon IXUS 220HS which had favourable reviews but my main concern is the video file size while recording at 720p. According to http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/readflat.asp?forum=1010&me... the video files write at 4 mbps at 1020p. I don't see why it should be higher than 1 mbps (standard dvd quality: 80mins = 4.7gb).
Could anyone please help me find a similar camera which produces decent photos and records video with a more manageable file size.
Any suggestions would be sincerely appreciated!
