My mom bought me a Nikon Coolpix S550. I looked at reviews and didn't really like what I saw. Then I looked at the Panasonic Lumix TZ5 or TZ15 and liked it. Depends on where you look, the second one costs more.
But I want to know, do any of these small "pocket" sized cameras (one of the good ones, costing around the same as the two I already mentioned) also have a video option? Where you can take videos? Doesn't have to be great videos.
