I'm thinking about the Kodak DX3900. I have a soft spot for the Kodak line, but my DX3600 was stolen a week ago *cocking handgun* :-(. I took a damn lot of pictures with the 3600. In all likelihood, the 3900 will take better still photos but has no video mode. I'm especially interested in its ability to change the settings.
But I only used the video mode twice on the 3600.
Should I pay $70-100 more for a digital camera that takes video? It doesn't seem like a good feature - the resolution is quite poor for most cameras - and Kodak cameras do have their reputation for high quality still photography.
Still, I'm wondering whether losing those moments when video would be appropriate is worth $70-100. I might lose them anyway since video takes up a lot of space on my HD for negligible quality.
