    What point and shoot camera do you recommend under $200? My friend wants a new camera for her birthday and they don't have the money for a dslr. I suggested a nikon cool pix. I have one I am mostly happy with...

    anyone have a better suggestion?

  2. I bought the Nikon S6 when I sold my D50 a while ago. I'm sure technology has progressed, but I wasn't impressed at all with the S6's performance.

    I'd look into any of their SD lines that fits your budget.

    Just got off the phone with Canon Tech support. I called about an issue on my 3 year old Powershot S2-IS and was told about the Canon Loyalty program.
