I'm gonna see what Canada Computers have left. I rather like the SD780. I know I started this discussion before and ou had recommended the SD880 for the 28mm angle. Back then I didn't have the money for it. This time I actually have some time to save up the money.
43 MP/cm² pixel density for the SD780 ouch.
I would take the SD1200IS instead if I were you.
the targeted audience will still never learn how to TAKE a picture.
In the talks those are being referred to as "Uncle Harry" and "Uncle Fred".
Canon just had too many people.
I had to wait after 6:30pm (all the sessions are done) and then I got some quality time with the S90.
I did take a look at the Sony WX1 P&S camera with the 220 degree panoramic sweep option . . . . .really nice . . . but at $400, pure madness.
To me panoramic sweep is a gimmick. Handheld twilight mode is the real thing to try. It seems to work and the samples floating on the web look fantastic coming out of a ultracompact P&S. If you are already invested in Sony's system with a bunch of memory stick, definitely wait for the price to drop and get it. The size is pretty small but I do feel it is a bit more cheaply built as it is so light (may be good with the ladies though). Another issue is whether you wife would want to stick with so-called "Canon colour". I used a lot of Panny's and I like the features, but I can't ever quite get used to Panny colour. So while the WX1 may be good the wife may not like it.
I'll be going back next year though. Specifically for the software seminars, as I now see that I must learn Photoshop
I have been hearing that if you take relatively good RAW, Lightroom is simpler and better for the task? Of course if you need to paste someone's head (dude didn't show up for the picture) in a scene, then you pretty much need to learn PS.
The Model M is not for the faint of heart. You either like them or hate them.
