Canon Powershot S40. 4 megapixel, 320x240 @ 15fps vid capture. $1460.

Not interested in updating. Nothing out at the moment has any significant advantages, and especially for the price. Maybe in a year or two, who knows.

I've got a Sony CyberShot DSC-S85. 4.1 megapixel, MPEG movies, yudda yudda yudda. Got it in Japan 7 months ago for just over A$1000. It's around $1900 here.

HP 215 PhotoSmart

I use a HP Photosmart 215, because I am a cheap Bastard.

But having said that, I am very happy with the quality of photo's that I am getting with it. (1.3MP digital zoom, 1.8" LCD, 4Mb Compact Flash Card.) The Whole thing cost me about $300 a year ago, and Ive seen it at Hardly Normal nowdays for even cheaper.

The Only Upgrades that I am thinking of making to it is a 64Mb Compact Flash Card.

Mine's only a cheapie Kodak DC3200 cost $399 but I think you can get them for $299 now. I'd probably update (backdate?) to a normal SLR film camera and a scanner if I wanted to spend some money.

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

My everyday Digital camera is a Kodak DC 290. I picked it up for $1300 about a year and a half ago. 3.3 Megapixel, and I got a few compact flash cards (96, 64, 48 and 16)

Also have a Nikon Digital camera. But I dont use it much.

Occasionally i get the Digi cam from work, pretty bloody ordinary one (some Kodac thing) one of the earlier models with a 4Mb card and eats batterys like buggery. :dead: :dead:

Gotta get myself one of these things one day.

Getting a Canon A40 This week! Finally! Not bad best price I have found is $799. Appears to provide pretty good bang for bucks. 2.1 Megapixel, 20fps video (limited to 10 or 30 seconds though). Its very similar to the A20 just with a few more added features.

Have to give it a good test on the XR this weekend.
