Getting a new camera soon in Consumer Electronics Posted May 11, 2008 · Report reply My Current Compact digicam is Canon SD700. It has decent battery life, good quality. However I hate IS function. I'd rather depends on my steadiness, because sometimes IS is just completely make your picture SHAKING. What I don't like about this camera, weak auto focus capability in zoom at the low light condition. Don't have AF or AS function. 4x Op Zoom is not enough apparently .. My Mom who bought it... for 300$.. without telling me first.. Well, like year ago. However, I plan to get Nikon D80 (DSLR). Maybe I'll wait until thanksgiving .
