I saw my first MPEG4 camera today: http://www.fisherav.com/FVD-C1.htm its really beautiful, light, and simple. records onto a sandisk..something like an hour of video. if it could hook up to internet through wifi, and post directly to a blog, youd be set. i was just blown away by the quailty of the image and how the camera just sat in your hand. pricey, but itll come down. Ryan is right--these MPEG4 cameras are perfect for videoblogging.
