A Christmas squart inspired by Ian. Painter IX
Today I went to some more camera shops. This time looking specifically at Canon IXUSes as recommended by Davem and Ian (same person as above but this link is to a photoblog). I like the idea of this one:
If anyone has specific experience of the Canon IXUS 850IS Digital Camera (7.1MP, 3.8x optical zoom) I'd love to hear about it - its meant to be relatively wide-angle with an equivalent of 28mm at its wide end and going up to 105mm at its telephoto end.
I think they are called Canon PowerShot SD800 IS in the US.
I'd particularly like to know how well it stands damp conditions - Jim might want to use it when he's walking in Scotland.
