Yeah, I would say, the most important factor would be analog zoom. And you need sticking out lens. Some simple models are completely flat, and you get different pictures with that. Memory shouldn't be problem, because most are working on SD cards, anyway, and you can get some extra with you.
Just make sure, that it records in FULL HD (1080p), because you can get robbed, and output will be only 720p. And make sure, that it gets better ratio, than 4:3 (also could happen). 4K takes lots of memory, you can seek 8K if you want :)
But anyway, it would be better if it records in raw format, not already compressed, like AVI. And check how it records under low light. The best option would be 3CCD, but that is reserved for camcorders.
You shouldn't also seek too smart model, you want to be able to set white balance manually. Most of the time, automatic setting sucks.
And YOU NEED EXTRA BATTERY! If it works with AA good, but they tend to have their own models now. You definitely need extra, and already charged.
Good info, thanks.
