    Regrettably, common courtesy seems to be in short supply more and more these days. All it really takes is for people to treat others the way they would like to be treated. It is possible that the...

    The purpose of having quality (expensive) stuff is to use it! Insurance can give you a little peace of mind, I suppose - and it is not all that expensive (if you are NOT a professional...

    While I don't have any experience with it, I suggest that you consider the Sigma 18-250mm lens. Obviously a lens with this much range can't provide as high a quality performance as one that has a...

    Since you gave precious little information about what is important to you in a camera, your questions are very tough to address.

    I would not pay to have the SD750 repaired. Although I have never...

    Right now you can get a Canon A1000 for less than 150 USD. It does not permit much in the way of manual control. It is a decent camera. It has image stabilization and an optical view finder.

    What is the end product for your images - screen or print? And, if print, what size? I don't shoot sports and this might be a really stupid idea but here goes: The fastest lens you can get for a...

    They are very similar. The main differences, I believe, are sensor resolution (T1i has 15 megapixel versus Xsi's 12), Maximum sensor sensitivity (T1i max ISO is 12,800 versus 1600 for the Xsi) and...

    Ben:

    For $200 or very little more you will be able to purchase a new, decent quality, point and shoot camera. And it will be (only) very simple to operate - and that may be the rub. From the...

    The Canon SX10 that you mentioned would certainly do a good job for you in most respects. Its low-light performance will not be stellar unless you crank up the sensitivity which, with its small...

    Small is somewhat of a relative term. And I have seen purses that range in size from tiny to huge.

    If small is very important to you, I suggest you consider the Canon SD series. The SD1200 is...

    I agree that Canon's SD series cameras are quite nice. And I also agree that a wide angle field of view is the way to go. But I am doubting that you can get a Canon SD series camera with a field of...

    I believe you can buy the Canon A1000 for $130 right now. Yes, it is a little more bulky than the their SD series and yes, it does not look as "sleek" as some models but your budget places certain...

    The suggestion for a fast prime lens is probably a good one. I have a 50mm f1.4 which is an excellent lens. Inasmuch as you have been using a 300mm lens, you must be sitting in the "cheap seats" in...
