    I have a Canon SD400 and love it. Great images and very easy to use! It's also quite fast. Quick power on time and very little shutter lag.

    Pros:
    Small and light
    Good picture quality
    Some manual settings (ISO, white balance, exposure)
    2″ LCD
    Color effects

    Cons:
    No battery indicator until very low battery
    Grainy ISO 400 images
    Cannot directly control shutter speed

    If you are willing to spend more and want more MP consider the SD500 or SD550. If you just want a larger screen look at the SD450.
