Hi Steven. Sorry to learn you're having a spot of bother. There are quite a few cameras which claim to do wonders, but I always find that giving any potential purchase a thorough going over and that means giving it a real trial in or outside the shop, and checking the results carefully. The Ricoh CX4 carried some favourable results in the WDC test, such as 'A high speed shooter with some impressive video quality' Maybe you could give this model a workout?. If a shop won't play then what are they hiding?. The WDC magazine offers lots of info and tests in their Buyers Guide pages. All the best and good hunting. Mike.
