For some folk "best" may be a pocket point and shoot. Someone else would demand something with lots of controls. One person declared that all cameras that didn't use AA batteries off their list.
What I'm writing here is that "best" is best to those that know what best is.
I would like to present a digital cam to my friend for Christmas.
Please suggest the best CANON digital camera under 400$ .
Are the power shot HS model better than power shot IS series ?
Which canon series is the best one to buy ?
