    My camera finally crapped out on me.. Right in mid holiday season, of course! Sooo.. I am in desperate need of a new one.
    I want something that take clear & clean pictures of an active 2 year old. I would like to stay under $350. Any suggestions?


    TIA

    I have a Cannon PowerShot that takes remarkable photos. It includes a setting for kids and pets, allowing some movement and surprises, yet will take a sharp photo.

    Ditto the Canon. The Powershot SD1100 with image stabilization seems to be the popular one for sale this Black Friday... see if you can find it online - most places I've seen it for $149. And it comes in your choice of pretty colors :)

    Mine is the SX100 IS.

    It might have come in silver, but the only choices I had were black, ebony and charcoal.

    No, the store closed at 9:00.

    Cannon still has the best graphics and makes the glass. (Lenses.)

    Thanks everyone! After research & suggestions I decided on Canon Powershot SX120 IS. It seemed to have better reviews than even the pricier Nikon & Canons! Can't wait to get it & play with my new camera!
