    Received an A720 the other day. So far looks rather solid and takes good images. It is slightly smaller and more compact than the 4-AA battery carrying A610 that it replaces.

    To add:

    The A650 lacks a hot-shoe but currently my thinking is that deploying a full blown dSLR makes more sense than gussing up an otherwise compact, light P&S with a cumbersome external...

    Thank you David and Andy. If the hack works with the A650, then, for my purposes, the A650 is a better camera to haul along on long backpack trips than the G9.

    The hack would furnish a power...

    Good to know. Just ordered last week an A720 with airmile points. Where can I find the CHDK hack?

    The G9 shoots RAW and sports the same relatively large sensor as the A650. The G9 provides more...

    I apreciate the advice Kelly and will look at test shots.

    Would you or others care expanding on this notion that anything, presumably in a P&S digital, over 7 Mp is sales fluff.

    So the ideal way would be to find a camera with a large sensor but only, let's say, 8 megapixels?

    The A640 and A630 have the same size sensor as the A610 and A620.

    griptape, I thank you for the patient explanation of the sensor footprint and IQ. I had noted the similar sensor footprint between the two models but, yeah, this is all new territory for me.

    Thanks griptape. Quite right about the Li-Ion battery. The G9 shoots 240 shots/battery life, versus 500 shots for the 4X AA toting A650 IS, .

    I read elsewhere that the G9 is referred to as "the...

    Thanks for offering the ranking. Not all Pentax lenses are dogs but otherwise the ranking seems to 'fit'. :p

    Back in the day, Olympus made a couple of 35mm rangefinder cameras, e.g., the 35RD,...

    Replace PowerShot A610 with similar P&S

    I drowned a Canon PowerShot A610 in a silly canoeing mishap on a stretch of wild river in SW British Columbia just recently. I'm looking to replace it with a similar point and shoot (P&S) digital...
