I can't figure out how I should replace it. You see, I also have this waterproof housing for it, which I think only fits the Canon Powershot SD1000.
So my first option is to buy the exact same camera used for $90. Not super exciting, but I know how to use it and I'll still have the waterproof housing (which in my current lifestyle I don't really use all that much I'll admit).
The second option is to buy a new updated Canon Elph. But there are sooooo many options. It's getting confusing.
Look - this one's even waterproof. But $270.
What about the Canon Elph Powershot 300 HS? Only $190.
Oh, wait a minute. The Canon Elph Powershot 310 HS has 8x optical zoom instead of the 5x of the 300 HS. $250. And purple!
The 510 HS has the fastest shutter speed (I think) and a decent paparazzi-mode. 12x zoom - that's pretty cool. $320.
OR, I could buy a fancier camera - NOT a DSL, I'm not ready for that, but something more that direction...
Something like the SX30 IS? 35x zoom, faster shutter speed, but is there video and does the paparazzi-mode suck? $350. What about the SX40 HS? $400.
Here's what I want -
- Fast shutter speed
- High optical zoom
- Time-lapse video would be sweet
- I do love paparazzi-mode
- Inexpensive waterproof option would be a bonus
- under $500 - I'll probably have to wait until next year's tax refund as it is
Here are all the options at Canon.
Please help me!
