    If you consider the Canon SD series, I would strongly encourage you to look to the Canon SD700 as opposed to some of the newer models. The SD700 IS was, in my opinion, the best SD series camera Canon...

    I am not a fan of the S3, and I say that from having owned one. The noise comes in too early, and the unit I owned lacked the build quality I would expect from Canon. While the S3 has a lot going for...

    Cheers. I don't think you'll be disappointed with the F31, I know I have not been. At least not with the picture quality (the menus are a bit odd, but they work).

    No noise at ISO 400 + image stabilization? You need to either change your requirements or up your budget (to include dSLR).

    The Canon SD800 has some noise at ISO 200 and 400, and a lot more at ISO...

    John,

    I know you're not a big fan of the Fuji's, but you summed things up quite well in your post. MP is not a determining factor in the quality of a camera!

    Why, out of curiosity, do you not...

    Amanda,

    I use a 6MP DSLR and the F31fd. I don't find that more megapixels is better, especially when many of the cameras out there create significantly more noise. You need about 2MP to print a...

    Good glass is more important than an expensive body for most work. If you require more adjustable AF points, faster AF, faster continuous shoot, etc. - that's when there is a return on investment for...

    ISO 400 is really not fast enough for most indoor flashfree photos.

    The Minolta would be a bad choice - it is not good in low light, so that will not work for you.

    Honestly, within your budget, there simply isn't a camera that will produce quality shots in the...

    For shooting sports I'd buy a DSLR with a good zoom lens. Unfortunately, the lens can cost as much or more than the body, and $1000 may be pushing it. A good lens for sports would be a 300mm f/2.8,...

    I would buy the A710IS over the G7, although I am not all that impressed with either. The A series (A710 or A640 especially) take excellent photos but I absolutely hate how plasticy they feel to me....

    1. The F20 would not be a major step down but a very minor one. At the price (~$130 - $140), the difference in picture quality is quite insignificant in comparison to the rock bottom...

    Look at the Canon A series (A570IS, A710IS). They are in your price range (sort of) and offer both a viewfinder and a screen.

    Another option would be a Canon Elph (SD600,SD700, etc.). The SD600 is...
