Hi, I'm looking for a cheapish digital camera that shoots video - preferably with rechargeable batteries - but it must be able to stand up on its own as I want to set it on a surface top. Some of the thin cameras look like they'd just fall over. The Fuji AX500 looks good, but also looks a bit thin? Thanks

Far as I know, none of them are designed to stand up on their own, but you can get this for three quid which will fit into any camera:

Mini Tripod with Ball Tilt Head, silver

Basically a copy of the Sony original, which I have (below). And which seems to be sadly no longer available. Still, the cheap one should be fine if you're only putting a light weight compact on it, so I wouldn't worry. And it's only the price of a cup of posh coffee anyway.

GE X5 Bridge Style Compact Digital Camera - Black (14MP, 15 x Optical Zoom) 2.7-inch LCD
I have this camera, will definitely stand up on its own and looks good too! Instructions are easy to follow and yes the batteries are rechargeable. I got a bundled kit for £150 which included the bag and extra batteries,I'm not sure if its still available at that price. You wont go wrong with this camera...lovely shots for your bang too.

Any bridge camera should stand up on its own, I should have thought, since they all have a big grip. It would be an easy matter to check out at a shop.

Bit limiting in field-of-view though. What if what you want to video is higher or lower than the surface you're standing the camera on?

Doesn't the Olympus om-D have a tilting screen
