Nice camera L27.... I was looking into one of those...

I decided to go with a Canon A70.... both cameras are almost identical.

That'* cool.... how much did you end up paying?

I ended up paying $499 Cdn for mine.... I was looking to spend between $400-$600, so I hit my target for once.

Good choice. I have the S50. A bit older, but it has a larger LCD viewscreen than yours, and it flips up and down, around, to the side.....all that good stuff. You'll love the camera.

Now go buy this:

Or the 230.....I have one, and it'* the greatest. Well worth the money (I got it in a drawing at work....an even better price). You can find it cheaper than this. I've seen them quite often in the 125 range. Memory stick just plugs in. It'll print a contact sheet of all pics on your card, and prints 3 different sizes. I cut my own sheets now from normal sized photo paper, it'* much cheaper.
