Digital Camera

I plan to buy a new digital camera for personal use. I have been searching for sometime and was looking mainly at Sony and Canon and see that Canon Powershot SD950 IS has got a good feedback.

My budget is between 12,000 to 16,000 INR ($300-$400 Approx). I was wondering whether this is a good option or there are any other suggestions ?

I totally want the Canon G9 !!!

It does all the normal great Canon stuff: manual controls as wanted, great pix quality, lots of optical zoom, pocket sized...


You can shoot in RAW mode!!!

I have the following canon cameras
Powershot g3 - The BEST
Powershot s2 - So so, I have kept it. Love the fireworks mode
SD1100 IS - Do not waste time+money on this one. (returned)
Powershot G9 - Still not as good as G3 (Canon offered as replacement to G3 which broke after 6 yrs)

Still waiting for the gooder one

I am sure Nikon and Sony have other cutting edge models.

Because it's two models out-of-date, the Canon Rebel XT can be found for within your price range if you want to move up to an SLR from a P&S. Great camera.
