Note to Family Bloglurkers

Do not get me a digital camera for Christmas!

I just ordered one. I really don't want to jeopardize my holiday camera-geekery with a camera I'm still learning to use, much less miss some bloggable footage at the December ACTS Match. I'm getting another Canon PowerShot at a killer price (and twice the Mpx as the old one).

I know there might be better dig-cams out there, but I really like the tough little Canon (though I may have dropped mine one too many times). I'll probably be looking for something more upscale next year when I'll be knee-deep in Film/Digital Art core curriculum classes. Peace out.

    That's the one I just got.
    I really like it. For the money, its better than anything else out there. I know because I've tried them all and thought I was going to have to spend almost double until I found that one. Especially good for gun photography.
    Takes very good video too.
    I dropped in a 1 gig SD card and I've been able to take good images of everything I've needed.
    I don't know about color saturation yet... best test for that is a good sunset. I'll have to try it when I see a good sunset.
    And it's easy to use - which I like. I'm not a photographer, I just have to act like one some times.

    I assume that has a video mode? If so, what format does it output the movies in?

    I'm looking around online and I don't find that info anywhere so far.
