I also have a Canon PowerShot; however, it is just the 3.5, but I must admit it is all I could want. I am kind of camera challenged, so this works for me. I would like to have a telephoto lense, but I know I could never master a camera that will accept one. Also the Canon software is very easy to install and understand. All of my pictures have been taken with this one little, simple camera.

I'm using a 5 year old ... 3 megapixel Nikon 880. Although I'm lusting after something newer ... I know it won't make me a better photographer.

You can go to http://www.dpreview.com/ and read reviews. It's amazing what you get today for less money ... just like computers.

Porky,

I couldn't agree more. But if or when you DO become a better photographer, it's nice to know you have the camera.

Back when I used to play golf (such a waste of time), my golfing buddy would buy new clubs every year with hopes of improving his game. It never did.

One of my best photos came out of a Olympus 35mm point & shoot, I did my part and the camera did it's.

Roger,

For manual focus, press the MF button on the right side of the viewfinder,then adjust focus with the finger wheel below the shutter button.
If you need an Owners Manual, contact Canon and they will send you one.

DUH!!!!! THANKS Mark! Talk about feeling like a complete novice! I was at Volcan Arenal in Costa Rica last week during it's biggest eruption in years, and I couldn't get time exposure shots 'cause the camera couldn't autofocus on a volcano three miles away at midnight in the dark. And all I need to do was.... geez... Oh well... I didn't bring my compact tripod along either (I knew I should have, but didn't when I packed... )

Thanks again!

Roger

On the subject of good online reference sources, check out Steve's Digicams. Lots of extensive reviews and comparisons.

Roger,

The ONLY thing I wish my Canon G5 had would be a Bulb shutter setting.
The longest shutter speed is 15 sec.

B&H Photo is also a very good place to shop. I've bought 7 Canons (5 digital-2 film SLRs) from them,with no complaints.

Mark

Ditto. I've bought a TON of stuff from B & H over the years. I've found they're about the only honest NYC camera dealer.

Lots of good information and resources posted so far. Looks like Canon PowerShot is a real favorite. If you haven’t posted yet, please do let us know what your favorite camera is (even if it is not a digital) as the last message thread on this topic was almost two years ago. I am sure this updated information will benefit many of us considering a new camera as we begin the summer season… and the International Rally!

My primary factor was optical zoom. Secondary was ease of use for my family. The Kodak we have has a 10X optical. It also has a digital but I never use it.

Good luck with the information overload!

Canon powershot A95

Very satisfy with my canon Powershot A95 5Million pix.

The great advantage of this camera is the oriented screen that allow you to take pictures above when lot of people or take impossible other views with the camera at the ground level by example;VERY USEFULL !
So,just change the genuine Canon memory card with a 512mb to get more space and quantity pictures with a great quality !

I will go along with what 65GT offered. I have a Canon Powershot G6. I bought this camera after almost getting a more expensive SLR digital. It would have been a mistake! I reviewed digital cameras online at Digital Photography Review (http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/spec...n/canon_g6.asp) and this camera was rated VERY highly. On that site they have full size images to look at. I was worried that I would not have the flexability that I enjoy with a higher end SLR. But this camera is fully capable and will go from full auto to full manual and everything in between.

As a side note, my wife and I are in the graphic design business and we have used this camera for publication work and print runs that number in the hundred of thousands. This camera will take pictures of a high enough quality for print publication.

I put one picture from my recent trip to France at http://archnevada.com/chartrescath/chartrescath.jpg. This is a full size image and the one thing you will notice is the minimal amount of chromatic aberration (rainbow shadow around high contrast areas). So the lens is of very good quality.
