I really have liked my camera. I got it for Christmas of 08 and it has been great to start me out on my digital camera experience. We got a great bargain, $99 with the Christmas sales. I figured it would last me until I was able to afford a DSLR camera. I didn't realize until Saturday what a deal we got!
Because on Saturday, a child dropped it...while the lens was out...and it fell right on the lens...making it, well...broken. But, said child immediately told the truth about it and that is always the most important thing.
So, we're back to using film and borrowing Sarah's OK camera for the time being.
The question is though...do I go for another cheap point and shoot (which wouldn't be as good as the camera I had) or try to squeeze the budget for a starter DSLR (which isn't quite the camera I was hoping to eventually get)? The only problem being that we are trying to make a lot of things happen in our family right now and $ is a huge issue...
I would love to hear any reviews you have about the camera you love and advice you have to give!
Meanwhile, I'm sending my camera into Canon for a free evaluation on repair costs (I'm not very optimistic). While it's there, I'll wait and maybe catch an amazing Black Friday deal. If I could buy my camera again for $100, I'd do it in a heartbeat. Maybe the camera faeries will be good to me again this year.
