    I've decided on a Rebel XTi kit from Newfoundland Camera and Imaging. Good deal and a nice camera. Here's the deal-it takes CF cards, instead of SD cards which I generally use for my camcorder and current point and shoot. My PAS is on its last legs, so my question is-does anyone make a nice point and shoot, for under $350, that takes CF cards? A manual mode would be a plus. Having it fit in my pocket would be nice too, but most point and shoots seem to do that anyway. I really like the Powershot series but I'm not sure if there is a Powershot that takes CF cards.

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm kind of confused as to what you're asking.

    Are you getting the XTi and a new P/S?

    Why not consider a nikon d40 or d80 that takes SD cards?

    I don't know of any P&S that take CF cards, other then ones a few years old.

    Yeah, that's the plan. I do a lot of snowmobiling, dirtbiking, etc. and carrying a Rebel around for that is probably not a great idea. And I had originally budgeted for a 40D, but I decided on an XTi kit, so I'll have a bit of cash left over, so I thought, why not replace my old Kodak?

    Looks like I might just have to deal with the SD and CF cards; I'd really rather stay away from Nikon.

    Doesn't the 450D also take SD cards?

    450D? Never heard of it. On the off chance you meant the 40D, nope. CF cards only.

    I've also looked for a decent P&S that takes CF cards...and I haven't been able to find any made in the last 2 or 3 years.

    The best option may be a Canon G6 (I think). The G series are very good P&S cameras but they switched away from CF cards a few years ago.

    Yes, the new Rebel XSi (450D) uses SD cards.
