Point & shoot camera suggestions to use with iPad and camera connection kit?

I'm taking off on an adventure and my Nikon Coolpix s550 only saves video as .avi, by the looks of it. Guess it's time to look for a new camera!

I'd like to use my camera connection kit's card reader to download photos and videos onto my iPad and my present set-up will only have the photos showing up.

I just need a point and shoot thing under $180 that would shoot video in something the iPad would accept. I don't think I'll need to edit anything on the iPad but it would be a conduit to my Dropbox, too.

Anybody want to offer recommendations on a camera that they know has iPad-friendly video formats. I haven't bought a camera in three or four years so I'm waaaay out of the loop on this.

Take your iPad and an SD card into Best Buy, Future Shop or London Drugs and test on site.

As far as the P&S cameras themselves, do not expect any big improvements. The limiting factor is still the sensor which is really about 2-3 MP with all the higher values being interpolated upwards from that small size initial image.

Would the camera connection kit work with an iPad Mini?
