Hi, I am looking to buy a fairly compact camera around 200 with fair indoor HD video capability for my father on his upcoming holiday.

I have been looking at the FZ38 which he complained about being too big.

I have also looked at the TZ7 but with a 15 minute limit on video kinda made it pointless.

Of course, I could always get the non-euro version to bypass the 15 min or 30 min limit. What do you guys think?

My old dad is not tech savvy so will most likely just point and shoot for both pic and video. There really is no point in getting him a higher spec camera than 250.

What would you guys recommend or should I just get him a Flip Ultra HD? But then he says that he wants to combine pic and video. Argh... fathers are so hard to please ...
