    So don't throw it away!

    I purchased a SX20 IS about a month ago. This replaces my S2 IS that I have had for several years.

    I just took a piece of string about 5" long.
    Tied one end around camera strap, and the other thru the loop on the lens cap.

    Fine should be more than enough to get excellent quality 4x6 prints. Even VGA should give very good 4x6 prints.

    SD Card

    sumanta:

    The genuine Sandisk Ultra II cards are excellent.

    However, you can get a better bang for your $$$ with the Transcend 2GB cards. They are currently $45 at Newegg.com.

    They also carry a lifetime warranty.

  14. My wish list

    1) Better low-light capability. The Sony products are far superior for this. No reason Canon can't do it.
    2) Use MPEG movie compression for far greater capacity than AVI.
    3) New firmware for S2 IS...

    Batteries low?

    Any chance the battery is low?

    That would display the symptoms you report.

    Try installing a fresh set of recharged batteries.

    Waiting.......Waiting......Waiting

    You could always wait for the S3, depending on how long you're willing to wait, if it ever comes out.

    How about adding better autofocus to the list, especially in telephoto?
  22. Recommendations

    Risky Business:

    I recommend:

    1) Purchase an external card reader for reading SD cards, either Firewire or USB 2. The software that comes with the S2 IS sucks disk space big time. And Photoshop...
