They probably have one as a prize
chroot said:These days, Canon is generally regarded as making the best all-around digital cameras. The other manufacturers are really not that far behind, though, so price or availability could easily be a swaying factor.
After a *lot* of research, I bought a Canon SD450, which is a very small (mostly) point-and-shoot kinda camera. It has a beautiful display, a very easy and intuitive interface, and takes incredibly good pictures for its very small size.
I also have a larger, much more expensive digital camera, a Sony F717, which admittedly takes better photos than the Canon, but is nearly the size of an SLR. I hardly ever use it anymore -- convenience often trumps a slight edge in photo quality when you're not an expert photographer.

fargoth said:i think the camera's optics are the limiting factor, not the CCD resolution.
5 Mpixels is an overkill, and it takes up too much memory anyway.
chroot said:Actually wolram, fargoth brings an interesting point to the table. You should probably give us a list of desired characteristics first before we start throwing camera models at you. Do you want something tiny? Or are you okay with a camera that needs a carrying case with a shoulder strap, yet takes phenomenally good pictures? The market is saturated with cameras of all shapes and sizes.
I probably should have worded it differently. I meant that in addition to the Fuji I mentioned in my previous post, I also have a Digital Rebel. I did not mean to imply that I thought your Canon was also a Digital Rebel nor that all Canons would not be reliable.chroot said:The camera I mentioned, the SD450, is not a Rebel.
I have the SD400, which is just a few bells and whistles less than the SD450, and I love it. It fit both of my criteria...small (or else I'd never use it...my old camera was too big to want to carry around, so I never had it with me when an interesting photo opportunity popped up), and point-and-shoot with some ability to change the settings as I learn more about how to use it or want to play with those sorts of things.chroot said:After a *lot* of research, I bought a Canon SD450, which is a very small (mostly) point-and-shoot kinda camera.
