I realize these both models are discontinued by Canon since the companies now days update or announce new models every month or so. Said that, in Canada I don't see a dramatic change in price for both of them. I mean I found several online shops and store (bestbuy/futureshop) selling the SD1100 model under 200 Canadian dollars. I found only few stores carrying SD880 model. Why is that? And the price is 299 Canadian dollars. When I read the reviews I understood that the while SD1100 is a remarkable model for a PnS camera SD880 was improved and is better in many ways. Few things that attract me to SD880 are Bigger LCD, Newer Processor, and 28mm wide angle. After calling few local stores I'm getting this doubt about buying the discontinued models. I am planning on saving up for a decent entry level DSLR asap! Please advice what to do.
