Hello all, I'm facing a decision on what model point and shoot I am going to buy and just need a bit of help with my decision, and I figured that the friendly folks on Macrumours could help. I'm a student in high school now, and have been living with out a point in shoot for about a year now. My previous camera, a Canon "Digital Elph" finally died after 3 years of loyal service last summer, and now I need to replace it. My list of must-have's for my new camera include, but are not limited to, a camera with at least 10 Megapixels, able to take good pictures in low-light situations without a flash, able to capture fast movements, and it should have a nice design, metal preferably. I am willing to spend up to about 300 dollars. (Basically I need a camera that will take great photos of me and my crazy friends, who seem to never stand still! Also, I am going to New York this summer, and want a camera that won't cause me to stand in the middle of the street just to get a blur-free shot, if that makes sense.) Also, I often use a Nikon D60 at school, and love the manual control. Though I would not use them in most pictures, being able to control the focus, F-stop, and exposure would be nice bonuses. After looking over the latest issue of "Consumer Reports," and researching cameras on Cnet, I have narrowed my decision down to four cameras, but I think there are only two real contenders. Here are the cameras, including pros and cons, that I am considering: Canon PowerShot SD880 IS Elph Pros: -Nice looking design -Easy to use menu -Had a Elph before -Vibrant colors -Wide 28-112mm lens (rare in subcompacts?) -4x Optical Zoom Cons: -Only 10 Megapixels (is there really a huge difference between 10MP and 12MP?) -A lot of fringing in high contrast areas Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W290 Pros: -Solid Metal Design -Already have two 8GB Memory Stick PRO Duo cards -Lower price than the Canon -12MP Cons: -Colors not as vivid -Optical Zoom 3X -Metal ridges on front collect dirt I was also considering the Sony DSC-W230 and DSC-W300 Any thoughts would be much appreciated! Thanks so much!
