    OH one more thing... the new canon sd cameras have a lot of features that most people dont know. like color selecting and swapping. like in the movie schindlers list where verything was black and white but the red dress. you can select a color and only that specific color will show up. so if you are photographing your flowers they will all be black and white except the red or maybe your bridal party will all be black and white but the color of the BM dresses. also it has time lapse video so you can do some fun stuff with that.

      I've read the 1000 is a cheaper model. It does look a little cheaper. The pictures look the same to me, but the case seems a little cheaper. The 700 & 800 lines are nicer.

      I like the little eye hole. I bought the SD600 when the SD620 or 630s came out. The only difference was the had a slightly bigger screen, but no eye hole. I think it's nice when it's really bright outside & can be hard to see the LCD screen. My mom is also confused by the screen, so she looks through the eye hole. We take trips with her every year, so it's good to have that for her to be able to take our picture. Anyway, it's not necessary, but I like it.

      Getting IS (image stabilizer) is probably good too, if you want to spend a little more. My camera doesn't have it. I wanted to stay under $200 (this was last year).

      They also make really cute red leather cases that fit the cameras.

        Quick question. How do the Canon's fare in low lighting & at night? I was thinking of checking out the Canon Powershot SD850IS or the A570IS.

          The color selecting/swapping is sooo much fun to play with

          I've got a Nikon CoolPix that I love, if you want to look at a different brand. I've actually had two of them (the first was a 2.0MP).

          Has everything I need.

          Another thing I've found that is super helpful is a memory card that has a direct feed to a USB port (part of the card folds out of the way). LOVE it.

          Happily married since 2008

            for low light you cant compare when it comes to canons.. i do lots of concert photogrhaphy so constantly low light shots and ive shot with both canon and nikon and they dont compare to the canons. id say they are 25% better image quality in low light then nikons..

                  FH is getting me one of the Canon PowerShot's as part of my wedding gift. We have REALLY old, crappy cameras now --and really need one for the DW and HM.

                  We have so many friends with the PowerShots and they love them. I also love the compact size.

                    I have a canon powershot. Its the SD 750 and I absolutely love it. I had an accident with my SD 630 and I liked the cameras so much that I went out and bought another one. The main reason for going with the 750 is the 3 inch screen. They are also light weight and small so you can bring it anywhere.
