$200 range P&S - SD4000 my best bet?
Apr 28, 2011

Greetings!

I've been looking for a new P&S and the options are overwhelming!

The features which are most important to me are:

Pocketable - the smaller, the better
Low light performance - especially for video
At least 720p Video - that will zoom and focus

I'm in love with my 7D and cart it around almost everywhere. My interest in the P&S is mainly to take short videos, and the occasional picture when the 7D has to stay home. So I'm not looking for something advanced like the G12 for example.

DPR's review of the SD4000 was pretty glowing, but it is a little older now and video is a more popular feature these days. I also found some pretty mixed opinions about it in the forums here.

Does anyone have any recommendations around the $200 range? I've tried a few of those blogger style HD Camcorders (Samsung, and Flip), but the video looked like awful indoors.

Any advice would be appreciated.
