    I love my digital camera, FI got it for me 2 years ago, and I feel bad since it was a gift from him. But these are my 2 major complaints with the camera I have now. I am looking for suggestions from you girls.

    1. My digital camera takes too long to take a photo, slow shutter speed (I know that this is the most common complaint with digital cameras but this is ridiculous)

    2. It takes so long to actually take 2 pictures back to back, on the LCD screen it is black so long before it comes up again.

      Someone asked this question recently & a lot of people said great things about canons. I love my canon SD600. You can click the button 1/2 way down & it focuses the picture. Then you are ready to take the picture quickly. It's great for kids & pets. I can pretty much always get the picture with my canon.

      I think all the canons have this feature. It's not just my model.

        yes, kids and pets always moving. But mine is so slow, even adults get tired of waiting!

          i love my canon powershot. not sure the model # but it is the one that the tennis player uses in the commercial. love it! i get so many compliments on my pics. the whole back of the camera is a screen which works well because you do not have to squint to see your pics.

            ya. any of the new canon sd600-750-900 or so any in that new series are about as fast as you can get for digitals. i had a panasonic one and actually returned it for the canon (dont ask me whyyy i even thought it would be a good idea to stray away from the trusty canon. you can get one for between 150-350 depending on which model you pick up. its so worth it though and if you want you can get a sweet underwater housing for themfor about 150 bucks so you can take all sorts of REALLYYY good quality underwater photo and video of up to 150 feet below. its probably the best 150 bucks ive ever spent

                I have the Canon SD800. It is super lightweight and takes pics fast. I absolutely love it.

                  I just got a new digital for the exact same reasons you mentioned. I got the Cannon Elph Powershot SD 850 IS 8.0 MP - it was $300 @ Best Buy. We had some trouble figuring it out the first night and almost returned it but it turns out we were just big dummies and after they showed us how to use it we love it. Haven't had it long (purchased on NYE) but so far so good! My last camera was also a Cannon and I really do think they take the BEST pics.

                    i looked into the 1000 and compared the two. i love the 750 wayyyy more. the fact that it has a 3 inch screen compared to the 2.5 or whatever of the 1000 is one of the best features. i really hate the tiny little view finder peep holes. they are worthless and you cant see crap through them. go somewhere were you can compare the two and you might change your mind about the 1000.
