    I have never liked canon's software in all the years that I've had canon cameras. I use canon photostitch but that is it. The other software is slow, buggy, and takes up too much hard drive space....

    I've had friends who bought warranties and broke their stuff right before the warranty was up to get newer and better replacement things. I would never do something like that as it seems to me to be...

    I'm just saying in my opinion, .8 megapixels isn't worth $100. It may be to other people. But let's take 2 other cameras for example, the A75 and the A85. The 75 has 3.2 megapixels and cost around...

    That's cool. I know you can get media readers for the ipod too but it costs extra.

    What it really comes down to is are you willing to pay the extra $100 for .8 megapixels? I am personally satisfied with 3.2. As long as you don't have to crop the image very much, it comes out...

    It is true http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/specs/Canon/canon_sd300.asp. The canon website states that it has "Approx. 4.0 Million" effective pixels but if you take the resolution 2272x1704 and...

    That's it, you got it. The motion that's happening relative to your camera is what gets blurred so if your camera is pacing what you're shooting at, no blur on your subject. So if you're in say...

    The whole trick here is to use a moderate shutterspeed, I don't know, say 1/100, but to match the pace of the car in the fiewfinder as you're taking the shot. That way the car looks as though it is...

    I would go for the S1IS just because I shoot more outdoor shots than indoor shots and I like to shoot birds and that IS lens would be very nice. But for your uses, the A95 sounds more your style. ...

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I don't believe you can manually set these on your sd200. You can set the shutterspeed for long exposure shots, i.e. those greater than one seconds from the main...

    Videos are a bit different in that they are encoded I think in the Mpeg or motion jpeg codec. Don't quote me on that though. All you have control over with the videos is resolution and framerate. ...

    Could be partially due to the fact that the Optio has 4.0 effective megapixels and the sd300 has 3.9. Doesn't seem like the difference should be that drastic though. In that case I'd vote for the...
