I am a scrapbooker...which means I need photos...and therefore, a camera is essential! After our recent trip to DC, my handy point and shoot decided it had fulfilled all of its dreams and was fine to leave us before its time. When we returned home, I dutifully downloaded the last of our pictures off the SD card and when I tried to reinsert it, she'd had enough. I even took APART THE CAMERA to see if I could fix whatever was ailing the poor gal (mind you, I know NOTHING about camera repair, but how much could it hurt?). No luck, and no warranty, meant it was time to let her go. Hence began the research on a new camera. Luckily, I did have my trusty Canon DSLR to keep me company while I searched, but there is nothing like the convenience of a handy, little camera that you can just throw in your bag and go around town with. I looked at dpreview, cnet reviews and even consumer reports. For the budget I was working with, the Canon ELPH (SD models) kept coming up as a good value. Now, I know that the picture below is NOT of the current model, but turns out I got a killer deal on this one and the reviews didn't really put the newer model that far ahead of this one from last year. So it arrived safely into my arms this past week and I quickly charged the battery so I could play. Here is a picture of old faithful taken by the new camera. And one taken by old faithful of the new gal in town. Now I have options, people! Works for me.
