I've got a Fujifilm S 5000 that's great.  It shoots 640x480 video  
with sound, though you need mplayer to play it back, IIRC.  It can  
switch between acting as a USB storage device and camera mode when  
you plug it into your computer.  It's also got 10x zoom.  It's an  
older model, so you'd probably want to get the newer version.  I  
bought mine secondhand when the previous owner upgraded, so I got a  
good deal. :)
