Shopping For A Digital Camera

I'm in the market for a digital camera and I need a bit of guidance. I'm looking for something sleek and sexy and not necessarily professional. Things that matter are picture quality, camera performance, features, user-friendliness, etc. Which manufacturers should I trust? I don't want a camera-shaped paperweight in 3 years

I had my eye on the Sony Cybershot when it first came out but I'd like check out my other options. I mean, sure it's sexy, but is it the best choice out there? I hear scary things about the battery and it's also a bit pricey. Budget-wise, I'd like to spend about $400-450 but that includes taxes, warranty and a memory card.

I have one week to make this purchase but I have plenty of internet hours to do some research and compare cameras. I'm going to start off with the models listed in this thread even though the specs preferred there are a little different from my own.

I'm thinking of buying the SD900




Pure Titanium 10.0 Megapixel Digital ELPH with 3x Optical Zoom and elegant Perpetual Curve design
DIGIC III Image Processor with Face Detection Technology for superior image quality, fast operation and low power consumption
Large 2.5 inch LCD monitor with wide viewing angle for easier on-camera viewing
ISO 1600 to reduce image blur and expand low-light shooting capability
Improved High-Resolution Movie Mode at 15 fps XGA (1024 x 768)
Print/Share Button for easy direct printing and downloading, plus ID Photo Print and Movie Print with Canon CP and SELPHY Compact Photo Printers

I was about to purchase the Rebel XTi, but eventhough it's really good, the Mrs wanted something small and portable.

The SD900 has nice image quality, but its manual modes are limited - i.e. no aperture or shutter speed control. So you won't be able to get too creative with it.

Interesting.


I want something with a very fast shutter.

Do I have to go with SLR?
