Re: Best, Cheap Digital Camera
size is just a bonus. stainless steel sturdy body, best sensors made (Canon), great optics, fast-fast-fast, excellent overall quality, great flash/exposure, full manual mode, 30 seconds 640x480 avi's, etc.
with or without a zoom is irrelevant imho... i don't think you could talk me out of a digital elph and mine has caused my dSLR (10D) to get lonely 'cause it's that good (for what it is).
i don't like the bulkier point-shoot cams as they're clumsy and bloated compared to the digital elph or true dSLR. good luck... glen
