it's freakin' old, the response time is horrible, can only shoot jpeg, did I mention 3.2 megapixel, doesn't have the optical zoom I need, etc. For quite a while I've had my heart set on a Canon G9 but now they've been replaced by a G10 but really I'm open to anything with stiplations. Here's the situation...next month (or December at the latest) Best Buy will run a silver rewards member special night with 4 years interest free financing. I've been planning on using that night for months to get us a 52" lcd, stand, receiver, 5.1 surround system, upscaling dvd...the works. It just occurred to me that this is the perfect time to work in a new camera given the financing option. I gently mentioned this to my wife tonight and didn't get any pushback so I'm thinking I might finally get the replacement camera I want. So here are the stipulations...$500 or less, must be available at BestBuy, must shoot RAW, must have manual options, must have really good macro zoom. What are my options? I want an advanced P&S. I'm realistic enough to know that a DSLR has enough bulk that I won't carry it as much as I should. I'm savvy enough to that sensor size is more important than megapixels. I love taking pictures of flowers and other macro items so any camera must do really well in macro situations. Ideas? Thoughts? Camera recommendations?
