I recently newegged a Canon A620 and I’m oh so glad I did. I’m the proud owner a Canon SLR as well and I love it but I don’t always feel like taking it with me everywhere I go – sometimes it’s just difficult, sometimes I don’t want to risk breaking the thing. I needed something smaller and less expensive. It’s a lot easier to grab and go with the A620 and for less than $250 it’s feature packed. Highlights include: 7.1 MP, movie (with sound) recording that’s pretty slick, tons of built-in family friendly (like Kids and Pets) automatic shooting modes, a flip out LCD screen, zoom, it goes on and on. Read the detailed DP Review of the A620 if you really want to get into the details. Great value – hard to believe what you get for less than $250 – oh and that included a 2GB SD card – took advantage of a NewEgg combo deal.
