I think several of you have seen threads where a lot of SM friends have been looking for a new camera.

Although I love my Nikon DSLR, I wanted a new point and click small camera. I do tend to grab my phone, but it really doesn't take great pictures.

So I finally decided on the Canon SD1300 (in pink , of course) and it arrived yesterday.

I haven't had a chance to try it out as I had to charge the battery overnight, but I will give it a try this weekend for sure.

I love my little Canon P&S too, it does come in handy & fits in my purse & takes good pictures. But for speed & high quality, can't beat the DSLR cameras. Great to have both.

This is great Lynn. Now we can see lots of new pix of all the girls as you learn all about your new camera. :chili::chili:
I love my little Canon Power Shot. I can slip in in my purse, my pocket, pull it out in a minute's notice (unless I'm stage struck by Paul McCartney:smilie_tischkante:) and though I'd love more than anything to have a digital SLR, on a freelancer's earnings, with a son in college, it's just not going to happen any time soon. So I'm glad I have my point and shoot and think it takes great pix. Of course we've all got such great models too.:sHa_banana:

Oh let me know how it is! I love my Canon rebel but it is just too bulky sometimes!
I have the same issue. I end up not having my "big" camera at candid opportunities because of it's size. But I recently have been researching an in-between... small point and shoot size, but with dslr like results (interchangable lenses and everything), they're called "four thirds" cameras and they're up and coming. Sony, Panasonic, Olympus make the top 3 affordable options (Leica has a $9000 option, but yeah...)

The Panasonic GF1 is on my to-buy list as soon as I get "extra" money, lol. You can buy it with a "pancake" lens which keeps it small, yet gets those professional looking results like tack-sharp subjects and blurred background if you want.

/end of photography nerd rant. :blush:

:aktion033: That being said, the Canon SD1300 is a personaly favorite of mine for point and shoot! Incredible quality and high quality lens! :aktion033:
