Here's a good explanation,
1080p - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I'd say Nikon would be the best but Olympus also has some nice stuff.

1080/60p means 60 whole progressive frames at 1080 lines per second. p = Progressive (whole frame each time). i= Interlaced (1/2 frame each time). So yes, 1080/60p is what you seek. A Guy

what else should be looked into when buying a vid cam? i know i should get CMOS, but what about size? i see some camers with 1/5" 10 1/2"

so far ive been looking at this one.... any ideas?

Newegg.com - Canon VIXIA HF R400 (8155B004) Black 1/4.85" CMOS 3.0" 230K Touch LCD 32X Optical Zoom High Definition Camcorder


as on newegg, that seems like the best bang for buck, but i havent searched anywhere else.

Probably a dumb question, but after Googling some security cameras, I noticed that one of the camera photos showed all of the LEDs lit up like a Christmas tree. Is there such a thing as a camera with night vision that wouldn't visibly light up?
