You have a good point there. Both 900 and 800 are in similar specs. So, with a 10 MP sensor, do pictures get affected with extra noise? This model has the most updated sensor (DIGIC III instead of my D30's DIGIC II) and I am wondering this new sensor can handle extra MP better than DIGIC II-equipped camera.Abstract said:Why wouldn't you go with the new SD800 IS instead? It has IS, it has 7 MP rather than 10 MP, so it probably takes photos better in low light, and again....it has IS!!
I decided to go with SD 700 IS 6MP. I think new SD800 IS/900 are coming to the general market in late Oct or early Nov, which is a little late for me. I think Canon SD700 IS fits my bills nicely as it is very compact. I already have 2 X 2GB SD cards for my Palms LD/TX and I am going to use those 2 SDs for this camera.Abstract said:I would prefer a digital camera with "only" 5-6 MP, but that's just me.
Do I really need a small camera with more pixels than my DSLR?
The SD550 is actually a better camera for the price. I have both. The image stabilization on the 800 is of marginal quality and use at best.Abstract said:Why wouldn't you go with the new SD800 IS instead?

I have this hunch Amazon may not be able to pull off a Tuesday delivery as I have not yet received the tracking #. My Amazon account still says the estimated delivery is tomorrow (Tuesday) as I opted for One-Day shipping (which is basically guaranteed delivery).Abstract said:Only thing is that the delivery date is very very close to the date of your trip.
