Here’s a good review of the “best digital cameras” of 2008. It seems like 3 out of 5 are Canon. I personally own 2 Canons, both SD750. (I dropped one of them in the sand at the beach and tried to get it fixed but Canon would try to charge me $300! I bought the camera for like $299. But they sent it back fixed, I guess they were just trying to rob me of my money. Lol…)
Canons are great except if you drop them in the “sand” at the beach, they will no longer function like before and they suck. Just don’t drop your Canon in sand and you should be okay.
