Re: Advice on a Digital Camera
I'll second the Elph. I have one of the older models and it's been great. Very small, decent quality photos, and easy to use.
I recently got the HP607, which has better resolution, is smaller and lighter, and has a better UI than the Elph, but I end up using the Canon more because the HP's battery / power system is so clunky that it's kind of a pain to recharge.
Both are good cameras though.
Also, I'll second the advice to stay away from Sony. The cameras are nice and small, but they use Memory Sticks, which typically cost twice as much (if not more) than the equivalent SD or CF card. Whatever camera you choose, make sure it uses one of those formats.
