    I use the Cannon powershot SD800 IS and my boyfriend has the Cannon powershot 850 IS. We had two of the Olympus "shockproof/windproof/watertight" cameras and they both broke! The camera couldn't hold up to extreme changes in temperature and humidity (most places we took it were like that). We have had the Cannons for a couple of years now and have dropped them, had them get rained on, snowed on, and really put them to the test. The result-great photos. Very sturdy camera. Most of my friends have them as well and have had the same awesome results.

    That looks like a great camera. IS and a wide angle lens.

    The wide angle lens feature was what decided it, what with me & the missus being outside so much.

    My wife's Canon has wide angle and it works well for her inside. take a picture of people at a dinner table and you get them all in.

    Thanks for mentioning that Brad. It always seems that you always have to back up too far to get everyone in at the Thanksgiving meal.

    Most of the pictures my wife takes are the family and friends - close up. So, a wide angle lens was a requirement for her.

    Hobbes, and anyone else with a Canon SD880, I just saw a notice that there was a firmware update for some of these cameras

    It is really a minor, rare set of conditions where the error might occur, but if it where to happen, it might be disturbing.
