    I was looking for a small point and shoot to keep in my purse. You know for those quick moments when I'm out and about.

    I'm going to be totally honest, I'm looking for something in the cheaper range. Any real money I have I want to put into my DSLR.

    Any suggestions?

    What about your cell phone? Doesn't the one you just got have a camera on it? :unsure:

    The best camera is the one you've got with you! :yes:

    Oh Tom, my phone may have a camera on it, but it's not a 'camera' to me. ;)

    Gun advice? Maybe I'll need that in the next couple of years. :D

    I highly recommend any of the Canon SD1000 series cameras...really small and cheap, yet takes some pretty great photos. We carry ours in our pockets sometimes.

    yep agreed, I dont think you can go far wrong there :yes:

    For someone after a DSLR experience in a smaller package though, the panasonic gf1 or olympus ep-1/2 are truly superb but more expensive

    We actually have three different cameras, with all different levels we take pics with, especially at WDW. Our Canon SD1000, Canon Rebel XT, and the new one the Canon PowerShot SX110. I love the SX110 because it has manual capabilities like the DSLR, without the bulk. It is around $300 though...not cheap, but not expensive either. I like the SD1000 because of the size, but don't freak out if we damage it because it is so cheap to replace.

    Either way you go, any small digital camera is pretty good. Stick with the brand you like and you can rarely go wrong.

    I just keep looking at that SD1200. It may become my carpe diem.

    Ducky... if you are looking at a camera I always google the model name and 'sample images' and it comes up with LOADS that everyday users have taken. Gives a really good representation of what results you can actually achieve with the camera :yes:

    woops! didn't realise you'd already posted that you'd bought it when I posted my message about the sample images! What a very nice carpe diem for 2010! :D :hug2:

    Still a good tip Josh. I looked up some more.

    Most definitely a good carpe diem Josh! I'm sure you will be seeing more photos of Arthur and the snow soon. :D
