I got a Canon Power Shot A590 IS. Cost just $134 and takes great pictures as well as video. With the upgraded memory card it will take over 1,000 pictures or over an hour of video. I really don't know as I have never been able to max it out.

I have a canon sd500 it,s about five years old and does a fine job. I bought a waterproof case for it for taking pictures when snorkling and also when at the water park with the grandkids.Also have the updated memory card it will hold more pictures than i will ever use.

I'm amazed at the things my new Canon SD880 can do. It's almost as smart as a Terminator T-100. It can detect and focus on multiple faces. In addition to a traditional self-timer, it can also detect when a new face joins a group. It then shoots a series of three shots of the group.

But it also lets you make adjustments manually, which is great. And the wide angle lens really makes a difference on those "scale eye-level" shots of the layout.

We just got a Kodak easy share C913 9.2 mega pixels, card holds 1500 pics, cost $99. Also have a Canon power shot A75 about 5-6 yrs old.
The Kodak runs on 2 AA batteries and takes great picks.

I got a Cannon A590 IS. $109 no tax, no shipping. Still trying to find all the features and try them out. Not really satisfied with the software. My Kodak crashed after 2 years. I really liked the Kodak but was irritated with the longevity.

I was very fortunate to get a very nice camera from my wife for Christmas. I got a new Canon Digital Eos Rebel XT with 18-55mm, 28-80mm, and 80-200mm lens and a Canon 420ex speedlite. When I get a temporary layout up, I will get some photos up. I am into photography almost as much as big trains! Hope to see new pictures from everyone!

One thing I'll have to get used to is remembering to bring, and put on, my reading glasses when I'm using the new camera. Didn't need them to look through the viewfinder on my old cameras, but definitely needed to see this LCD screen.

Old habits die hard. I keep trying to look through this one where there isn't any place to look through.
