    I currently own a Kodak DX3600, there easy share camera range, 2
    Megapixel. I have had this for just over a year, and I think it may
    be time to upgrade.

    So I am about to purchase the Canon S50 from Amazon for £378. The S45
    is only £30 cheaper, so it worth while spending the extra to get the
    S50.

    The camera is for general "family" use, days out, holidays etc

    I did look at the Sony P10, but I think the Canon is better (and it
    has the advantage of using the cheaper Compact Flash memory). So is
    there anything else I should look at before I purchase or is the Canon
    S50 one of the better cameras for this kind of price range at the
    moment? I managed to hold the camera in a shop and it felt ok, but
    they never had a battery for it, so couldn't test it.

    Looking for a digital camera is such a huge thing, so much
    information, and many reviews seem to say different things at times
    :)

  2. Absolutely. I <heart> my S50 - the only bugbear I have is that the
    screws aren't fixed in very well, they tend to need tightening every few
    months. I've had mine since March 2003, and it's been lovely.

    Lots of photos taken with the S50 at:

    Try and get the case with it too. I didn't, and finding a spare one is
    proving troublesome.

  4. I've got a Canon Ixus 400 and I'm very happy with it. It costs about
    the same as that.
