The "Canon PowerShot S2 IS" is a a great camera for a beginner/intermediate photographer. And should your creative urges dig deep into your wallet for shedding suds on a DSLR, it can still be a very nice backup camera.

See link below for some amazing captures with the canon:

Cheers and happy clicking!

The $250 sounds pretty good, because you're getting a lot of required extras. See how many photos have been taken - I believe Canons have an image numbering system that tells you how many photos have been taken with the camera.

I just purchased the S3 IS ($350 + taxes) and by and large, am very happy with it.

My only cons are - small (2.0";) lcd screen; starts only at 36mm - would like more of a wide angle, without having to use converters.

Great photos out of the camera for us average users; little PP required.

Canon is the best
Canon is the best among cameras. THe model 560 is on sale at bestby.ca. You wil get a 2GB sd card also. THe cost is $199.00 plus tax + case + charger (better to have one).

You can also go through the reviews on achabazar.com .

What happened to Nikon , Panasonic & Fuji ?

Canon may sell more but intelligent camera search will reveal that in the same price range and features there are other cams which beat it - check the following .

Nikon D40 SLR
Panasonic FZ50 and FZ8
Fuji S7000 & 9800

A worth mentioning tip - go for a cam which has got manual controls like aperture , shutter speed and preferably focusing - you will need it later .

I second that.

I have a Sony Cybershot and while I am very happy with the picture clarity, ease of use and other features, I miss the manual control very much.

Most Canon cameras have pretty good manual controls.

The moment you have to take pictures other than still images in good light conditions, you will need manual controls.
