The Canon A550 is the same as the A530 except it has 7 megapixels and a better video rate.
The Canon A560 is the same as the A540 except it has a larger LCD.
Either one a good choice.
The Canon SD630 is the same as a SD600 except it has a larger LCD but no viewfinder. A good choice if you don't mind not having a viewfinder.
Samsung is trying to make inroads in the USA after leaving the USA market for a while. I don't feel they have caught up to their competition yet.
I am so new to digital cameras....I had done my research awhile back and was going to purchase the Canon Powershot A540 or Canon A530.....since we are new to digital cameras and I admit not very "advanced" in this area I want easy, point and shoot...I will be using the camera for vacation, my children etc. (but I do not go over the top with picture's but take them) so want to keep battery power/type and memory card options in my wish list.
I do not want to spend more than say $250 and I also need a camera that is easy to use with the USB cable etc.
I want a good camera, solid but easy....we do not need a lot of fancy options at this point.....but I do need a camera now.
The problem is I do not live in a huge city so I went online to check the stores we have (Best Buy, Target, C. City etc.) and I did not see either of the Canon power shot cameras but now they have a whole new selection of Power shot camera's.....
Power Shot SD 630
Power Shot A550 and A560, A540, A550
I also thought about the Samsung Digimax and now they have 2 with a 6 mega pixel the S 550 and the S630.
I know if I walk into a store some sales person will sale me what they want now what is best for me.....
Can any one help me?
