So what’s the state of the digital camera market right now?
I ask because I need to replace our now-dead Olympus D-510 Zoom.
I’d post a picture, but, well, .. it’s dead.
Canon PowerShot s80
I’ve always been impressed with Jeff and Debbie’s Canon Elph cameras,
but I also really like Vartan’s 7 Mpx Sony CyberShot and Iain’s 8 Mpx Panasonic.
I have a limited budget though – I’d like to spend around $300-400.
I would love to get the
Canon PowerShot S80
which JR have for $435 US
, but after conversion to $CDN ($480)
and taxes and shipping and good memory card (say $100), it will top $620 I am sure.
So if anyone can recommend a camera that is closer to around $300 before extra costs, let me know!
Okay, never mind, I am
going to get the S80.
The plan is to spend $650 or less for everything
That means, the camera, the US dollar rate, shipping, and big memory card/stick.
: 7 Mpx[!], slightly wide-angle lens (28mm), records movies @ 640×480/30 fps and 1024×768/15 fps
: manual slide-cover to activate, proprietary power source (not AA)
Hmmm.. then again, there’s always the Canon Digital Rebel XT
an 8 Mpx SLR back for $600… ergle.
