    I am traveling for a long vacation to India during december this year and am
    planning to buy a point and shoot camera to use at family get togethers,
    picnicking...I have tried using SLRs but I decided they are not the ones for
    me (way to expensive and complex for normal users like me :) I am a canon
    fan, mostly becoz I have not tried using any other camera!!! Am looking at
    Canon sure shot series...but I want some advice on a good point and shoot
    camera for a nice price...any help will be appreciated...thanks!

    First of all, please decide if you need 28mm wide or not, if so, there is
    one 28-90 p&S from Canon.

    If you are ok with 35-38 at the wide end, then you got more choice and you
    can consider what is the tele end that you want to get, personally I will
    not prefer anything more than 120 since longer tele end only means you need
    more light and easy get shake and blur image. still, best range is 28-105
    for regular use. Go visit www.photographyreview.com under P&S, there is
    quite a lot of comments.

    If you're already comfortable with the Canon line, then the Sure Shot
    Z155 is a nice little camera. My wife has one, and it is quite compact
    and easy to use. It feels a bit light weight for me, but then I don't
    really use it except under her orders. It seems to produce decent
    photos, even at the long end of the zoom where you might expect trouble.

    I have just "left" point and shoot cameras for quickie photos
    because they should be called "point and wait and the camera
    shoots"...but I guess this is too long.
    I have two Canon Shure Shots 105 zooms and they work as
    advertised and give good images...eventually. :eek:)
