I wanted a Canon A610. (family/fun/amatuer) (SD/flipscreen/4AA)
But they didn't have it where I looked, damn it! And I don't want to buy off the internet.
I spyed a Fuji S5600 for £200, SLRish!, 10x, 4AA, smallish flip screen, xD, test photos look ok, bad positioning of on/, questionable useage issues, ie bulky
The Canon S2-IS is slightly more expensive, better movie, SD, seemingly better pic quality, but tacky looking.
