    I have been looking at a few cameras but I have no idea what I should get for sure. Really the only thing i know is that I want a good, fairly small camera that doesnt cost more than $350 or so. More specifically one that I can just pull out of my pocket and use as a point and shoot camera, or get a little more creative. these are the three I was thinking of. They all get good reviews and seem to have ups and downs. If you guys have any other recommendations I'm open to anything. :wink:

    It's really up to you. Go to a store and check them out, and hold them. They are all pretty similar. The A620 has a longer zoom lens, and the fastest shutter speed of all three (1/2500) I love Canon image quality, so that would be my reasoning.
