    Sanyo Xacti - one of the range is waterproof, which always helps if it's got to stand up to being used by small, grubby children.

    Why SD cards?

    Currently, I suggest DVD based cameras. The advantages are that the DVD can be immediately be viewed back on any DVD player (once the disk is finalised); the DVD can easily be duplicated; the DVD can be sent away to Examination Boards etc as evidence; the footage can still be captured to a computer for editing.

    Given that the current primary media for viewing video is DVD, that to me seems the logical way to go.

    A decent Sony camera is circa £200

    We have these in our Pre-School and REception classes. They're basic, but pretty robust. They get used a lot here.
