    I have been using a 3.2 MP still and a 640x480 mini dv camcorder (with
    no firewire out!) for the past 5 years or so. I'd like to upgrade to a
    high quality still camera with 640x480 30fps capability, so I can get
    rid of carrying around two devices.

    Video-wise... I've seen sample video clips on the internet of what some
    of the current technology can do. I'm pretty pleased with what I see.
    We don't have real high needs, I just want a fairly decent looking
    picture and have the ease of not having to capture it on the PC.

    The problem is... what I >>HAVE NOT<< been able to see/research are
    samples of low light video. I'm talking, just some house lights on
    after dark at home when you're chasing around the rug rats with the
    camera. How grainy/artifacty is the picture? Any testinmoy from dual
    function camera owners?

    You will need a tripod, as any camera movement will cause great blurring under
    the low light/night setting. The blurring is like the little blue swooshing
    that follows the puck on tv hockey games.
