Hey guys, I am looking for a cheap camera that can take 30fps video in reasonable quality, the "Casio, Exlim EX-Z77" Looks good, but is there anything else I can get at that price range (100-150$) that can do the job better ? 2nd hand ebay stuff would also be good.

Still picture quality does not matter at all, I will not even use this function. Focus is on short video clips !

Thanks !

If you can find a pre-owned Fuji F30 or F31 is the best. 3X2 gig Memory card will run out of space before the battery.

Otherwise Fuji A Series and Canon A590 are good also uses AA battery so it's good if you forgot to charge the battery because it easier to find them.

I saw my friends Fuji J10 camera video and it looks realy good.

Thank you !
Let me show you what I did find, all of these are within my budget, which one has the best video quality (technically) ?

Canon PowerShot A590 IS

Fujifilm FinePix J10

Casio, Exlim EX-Z77

Fujifilm, FinePix F480

The J10 I can get brand new for 120$, same for Casio, and A590 is the cheapest at 100$, and fine F480 is 150.

Don't get the F480, it's slow to focus.

My Brother in-Law has the EX-Z77 but he likes the shot taken from F480 better.

Canon A590-IS is more bulky but more comfortable to use. In my openion the Fuji J10 is better than the F480, it's also more compact than A590IS so it’s more convenient to carry around. Choices; Convenient vs. Comfort.
