    Which Canon did you have? What lenses? You have about $384 to work with. That will buy you a good P&S or maybe a Canon Rebel XT.

    your powershot is dead? (only listed camera)
    If so then this might be the time to go DSLR - a rebble is a fine camera body and - if you have the financial stamminer you can start to build a good lens collection to use - far more powerful and sharp, though it does take commitment of time, learning and money (though of course you can build up over time!)

    If you are moving up to an SLR from a P&S, take a look at any one of Canons FD mount film bodies, they and their glass is inexpencive, bodies can be found for under a hundred USD, same with name brand glass on the FD mount. For a 150 USD you could have a body and two lenses.

    The most I've ever paid for an FD lens was a hundred dollars, and it was a long third party telephoto, and now that I know how to use it :lol: it's a sharp lens.
