You know, some psych doctoral student could write a thesis on this, probably already have. Up to number 3 the Canon PowerShot SD850 IS. Well, it's not like we didn't plug this thing enough on our Holiday helpdesk marathon, but it really is a great camera and it's been in or near the top 5 for months.
