Charles, Your comment about not wanted to fuss reminded me of the auto modes on the SD780 I have. The camera is able to detect things like faces, sunsets, landscape shots, indoor shots, macro sh...

What I look for....
Like a lot of people, I'm not so into photography that I feel compelled to lug a 50oz DSLR into the backcountry. I think a lot of people are in the same boat as me. We want to buy a camera that...

Spark-Lite Fire Starter (Survival Gear - BPL Gear Shop)
