I've been hanging on my 8 year old Fujifilm s602 and have acquired several spares precisely for this reason. It is essential to my work to be able to take a picture of a subject and comment what it is about. The Fuji makes it easy, simply take a picture and press OK after to start recording a comment to it. No other camera that I know about has this automatic sound with picture recording function and very few have that feature period (which is usually buried many levels deep in the menu system).
A picture may be worth 1000 words but people still need to know what it illustrates, or what it means. I this visual age it plain baffles me that this feature, essential for in site documentary work, has been dropped by so many cameras.
Let's keep our fingers crossed, folks, and hope some hacker unlocks this feature in existing cameras
