Canon Powershot - which model to buy?

Recommended Posts

I don't have a canon digital camera, but we have the camcorder and we like it.

We have a panasonic and sony digital cameras and we really like both of them. I have also heard great things about Nikons.

My friend that went to Jamaica with us took her Kodak. Her pictures are sooo much clearer. I have actually replaced some of her pics with some of mine.
The problem might have been the camera though. The day after we got home from Jamaica the camera quit working. My SIL (the one who bought it) just happened to be at the house when it did and she took it back to Best Buy. I have not gotten any of the pics off the replaced camera developed yet so maybe there was a problem with ithuh.gif
I just got my first set of pictures developed from it and they are perfectly clear..maybe like you said something is wrong it your camera. I know when I take pictures it even does the face recognition to make sure its clear. Read the manual too because there is a ton of stuff I had no idea was available on it too..plus its fun to play around with all the color swapping!!

After reading this post that I went and read the book. I did figure out how to do the color swap thing and have a great pic of my 2 year old in her blue bathing suit. I love the black and white with the blue standing out!

I have the SD 800 I think. Its def in the 800's. Its a pretty good camera, we love it. Its compact and gets the job done! I think all the canon powershots are great.

my mom just got one and is happy with it, I am sure she got it at costco, I bet she got a good deal on it, so if you have a costco card check out what they have-usually they have a bunch in the stores but they also always have a ton of stuff online.
