good compact camera for video

Hey guys!
Can anyone recommend a good compact pocketable camera for shooting video?  It also should be able to take raw photos.

Sl1 is bigger then I would want, rx100 though has the perfect size. Maybe there are some other options?

For something 'pocketable', definitely the RX100 (or m2). Produces lovely photos & video for it's size (EOSHD had some great footage shot with it).

BMPCC?

What's your price range?

:edit: Ahhh, raw photos too.

EOS-M would be a decent choice.
