ultracompact camera

by timbo24 / January 19, 2007 3:05 PM PST

I had been very happily using a Canon SD400 ultracompact digital camera for about a year before it was recently rendered inoperable by the notorious e18 error.
I am now looking to replace it. I have looked at the SD600 and SD630, both of which i like. I was wondering if anyone could help with deciding whether to stick with canon and get one of these models or to switch from my longtime favorite.

Im looking for a 6/7 MP ultracompact with good image quality for about $275 or less.
thanks in advance.
Michael

The Canon SD600 and SD630 are good choices.
You will find that the image is better and sharper than you old SD400.

The SD630 has a larger LCD but no viewfinder.

Thank you for your help.
I think I'll go with the SD630 because of the larger LCD.
The lack of a viewfinder doesn't really bother me, as it is just a camera to take snapshots of friends.
For real shots I'll take my Digital Rebel XT.
Thanks again

Dont hop on the larger LCD bandwagon just yet

I thought the larger LCD was the way to go also but i have since changed my mind about that. Whats more important then a larger screen is the amount of resolution on the LCD.

I have the A520 and the A540 the A540 has the larger screen but it has about half the resolution. as the 115,000 pixel A520. Even though the A520 only has 4.0 megapixel its still a better camera and the screen shows much more detail.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
