I've done some searches on the forum, and in general, read some articles and reviews and talked to people at camera stores. But I am still lost as to what kind of camera to buy!!!! Please help with your suggestions.
1) I currently own a Canon Powershot A540. I love this camera. I often only use Auto and my pics come out fantastic. But alas, after many, many holidays it needs to retire. What I love about it is the quality of the pictures, the battery life, the size and the ease of use.
2) I am looking to stay in the Powershot line as it works for me. But there are so many. There is the A line (what I currently have), the SX, the SD, the G etc. There is one that is called the A1100 or A200 yet they are so inexpensive compared to what I paid for mine a few years ago so i wonder if the quality of the pics would be less?
When I go to a camera store they just tend to steer me towards whatever models they have. Every store steers me towards something different.
I know I want the same size, maybe more zoom, a few more megapixels, and $400 max. I download my pics to iphoto and make the hardcopy iphoto books on my Apple. I do some minor editing in Picassa or Iphoto.
Can anyone help me with a Powershot selection? Thank you!
