Canon Silver 8.0 Megapixel PowerShot Digital Camera
This is the best digital camera I ever owned and I have had several brands over the years. I started with the earlier version, the SD1000 which I purchased in November 2007 just before a river barge trip in France. I recently upgraded to the SD1100 which has motion stabilization and gave my SD1000 to my daughter. This camera is so easy to use, you don't even need the manual! It also takes great pictures with the default settings. It is small enough to throw into you pocket and carry it around. It takes a standard SD memory card and if you upgrade to a larger size memory card - like 1-4 GB, you can take a lot of fantastic videos. I have found this camera to take great videos in even poor lighting conditions. I took it to Ireland in April this year along with my laptop and it was great to be able to pop out the SD memory card from the camera, slide it into my laptop's card reader, and email pictures and video back to family in the states. I cannot say enough about how great this camera is. Most local stores sell it for around $250 but I found it on amazon.com for $207 with free shipping, so that is how I bought mine. I give it 5 out of 5 stars.
