It's the Canon Powershot A40 that Todd first mentioned last year. It takes
avi files which are really large (about 4 MB each for 12 seconds) but I
found a program that converts avi files to mpegs while retaining good
picture quality at only 1/3-1/2 the file size. I'm still kicking myself
for not learning how to use the movie feature before I went to Mexico in
