Default Canon SX110 Camera?

Hi,

What do you guys think of this camera Amazon.com: Canon Powershot SX110IS 9MP Digital...Amazon.com: Canon Powershot SX110IS 9MP Digital... ? With my limited knowledge of Digitals I have narrowed my search to this one. I like the controls and size. Not too big , not too small. When I fiddled with it in a store I was able to keep it steady, most of the other I picked up were jiggling all over the place. I am not looking to spend more than about $200. I really liked this cameras big brother, but it is out of my price range and too big to carry in a pocket, etc.

What ever camer you get, the most important thing is the quality of the lens. a 9 megapixal camera with crap lens will take crap pictures. a 5 megapixel cameral with good lens will take good pics. My .02

You might want to look at Circuit City now that they are going under. I went there today to see what kind of deals I could get. Right now only 10%off (yuck), but maybe a week or two it will be a little better.

Hi,

Yes I was thinking of doing that they do have that particular camera. Trouble is it will have to reach 25% off before it will beat the internet price I found. Maybe I will get lucky, but these liquidations usually don't get to that percentage until all the good stuff is gone.
