The biggest danger you have with this camera is that someone is going to drop it.
It slips easily into a shirt pocket and it just as easily, slips out of a shirt pocket.
The complaints about the LCD cracking have just about gone away. I still think there was an assembly problem in the factory and it has been corrected.
Canon is a master in not leaking information about new cameras.
Since the SD400 and SD500 have been updated to the SD450 and SD550, it makes sense that an update to the SD200 and SD300 is in the future.
When will it happen.......Canon won't tell you.
This camera has recently gone on sale and is price quite well at $299.99 Canadian, so after taxes it will come out to around $345.00 which is quite a great price considering it was priced at $399.99 before the sale. Now I have seen nothing but praise for this camera from many reviews sites. However, I have to concerns. This camera is to be used by me, my brother, and my sister who are all younger, meaning don't take care of electronics that well. I just want to know how fragile this LCD really is. I've noticed that it's people's main gripe with the camera. Is this something that I really need to be concerned with? Or as long as it's treated with common gentle care it should survive? Also, the camera is over a year older now, is their any point in buying a camera this old? I don't want to buy something that's already out dated or will be out dated with the coming months.
