Maybe some of you can help me out on this. I am looking for a camera that:
1.Has at least the ability to store 4GB+
2.Can shoot video in 800x600
3.Has long battery life
4.Preferably light and can snap photos, in which I only desire up to 2 megapixels.

Tell me all of them, don't hold back any because they are expensive. I want to see all the options. I've been looking on newegg but not many options.

I like the information you can get at Camera Town, especially since the reviews there link you to many other respected digital camera review sites.

I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

A few tips on a selecting a Digital camera. 1. The Mega pixel of the camera directly relates to the ability to enlarge a picture and the digital clarity of the picture. Once you get more then 3mp IMO its hard to tell the difference on a computer. 2. If you are going to be Zooming make sure it has good optical Zoom, digital zoom pictures are REALLY grainy and poor quality. 3. Unless you have used an SLR camera shy away from Digital SLR camera's, most are quite expensive and difficult to use. However if you are going to dabble in amature photography then a digital SLR camera may offer the flexibility you need. Be prepared to read a very large owners manual. This is based on personal experience and web research.

Edit: just re-read your post, that information is for digital Still camera's. I don't have much exp with full digital video cameras although I have used the Sony DVD system and had great results.

MOD EDIT: Moved to more appropriate forum ~ stevealmighty

Are you looking for a video camera or a web cam (or a still camera)? All 3 have the ability to capture stills and shoot video! :thumbsup:
