    Digital Camera suggestion

    Our Canon PowerShot S2 IS has decided to quit working. Looking for something similar. Any suggestions?

    Or, is it worth trying to get it repaired?

    Re: Digital Camera suggestion

    I just recently replaced an old Sony with a new Canon Powershot SD940IS. It was highly rated, and has been great so far. It was $225 a few weeks ago. My biggest beef with our old camera was it's size...this new one is about the size of a credit card, but still has good features.

    For a small, point-and-shoot, it's hard to beat, IMO.

    Canon

    I'm a semi-professional photographer and in addition to several SLR cameras, I own a Canon point/shoot. I highly recommend you getting another Canon and image stabilization is definitely the way to go as the smaller size of these cameras makes them prone to more shaking. After that feature, the zoom power and the size of the sensor would be my top considerations.

    I'm looking for something with more powerful zoom.

    This one looks interesting: PowerShot SX210 IS Digital Camera

    Besides the obvious "that's what she said" jokes, what does this mean?

    Re: Digital Camera suggestion

    What about repair? Is there anyone in central Iowa that repairs digital cameras and is it even cost effective?

    We have this PowerShot SX20 IS. My wife loves it and it takes the best photos. Can't endorse this enough.
