Hi, I will use the photocamera for my trips and I will make video only. I'm looking for a good photocamera with a very fluid Zoom (like a videocamera):
Is there?

I'm presuming you are talking about using a DSLR? I often use mine for videos and this is one of the biggest problems with DSLR video. In general most lenses are not very fluid and the best way to improve the quality is by practicing zooming. After lots of practice I can get a decent fluid zoom on my 24-105. It's also best to zoom slowly to get the most fluid looking shot.

The only lens I have used that worked well was a friend of mines 70-200mm 2.8 IS II, although thats out of most peoples budget :D

Camera: Canon 550D with battery grip
Lenses: Canon 24-105mm f/4L, Canon 50mm f1.4, Canon 18-55mm, Tamron 70-300mm,
Accessories: Manfrotto 055XPROB with 808RC4 head, Canon 430ex II speedlite, Lowepro Nova 180AW and Lowepro Pro Runner 450AW

There are a few m4/3 "power zoom" lenses, but pretty much every photography lens will suffer "exposure flicker" when zooming because they're not designed to zoom while an image (photograph) is being captured.

One of the many, many, many reasons the vast majority of people are better off shooting video on a video camera - Mark
