Well last week I finally upgraded from my Kodak EasyShare C300. I decided on the Canon SD600 because I had heard good things about the series. After taking it out and shooting a bit I found that it is just to basic for my tastes. I was hoping there would be a little room to grow into but I have mastered it in a couple of hours... I have decided to take it back and I am looking at the A700 and A620. Any other suggestions? My budget is around $400. I just need a good camera to get me started. Nothing to complicated but something I can grow into and use until I can afford a D-SLR. Thanks.
