Descent video? Like... for sky-diving? ;-)
I don't believe any still camera is going to take good video- not good
compared to a good DV camcorder.
Samsung makes some "hybrid" camcorders that also have still cameras built-in.
That might be something to look at.
As far as cameras go, most new models by Canon, Fuji, Nikon, etc. can be
mounted as USB mass storage. If not, you've always got the USB card readers.
I'm dying for a Fuji S5200.
