    None of the digital cameras will give the facility to record unlimited length of video. Most of the cameras come with 32 mb which is hardly sufficient to record about 3 minutes of video. For recording video and taking more photos you have to shell out Rs.5000/- for a 1gb card.

    you are right

    but i was talking about the minimum length of the video clips that the camera will let me record
    i have come across some cameras which will record only 3 min clips regardless of memory capacity
    i am planning to buy 1 gb card along with camera.

    Thanks,
    Vishal

    1gb sd memory card cost 1300/- without bill. i m using it for the last one yr without any probs.
    __________
    if u r going for AA battery powered camera, than make sure u buy rechargable NiMh batt with charger 2300mah, it will cost around 1400/-.
    insist on buying canon or nikon cameras.
