In The Market Again
« on: September 15, 2016, 02:23:02 PM »
So my trusty Canon A530 has gone & died on me  :( :'(.........almost 10years old and close to 200,000 pictures later :). It doesn't owe me a dime but now begins the search for a new point & shoot camera.

From the little research I did today at a Best Buy store the closest to my old camera would be either a Canon SX610 or Canon SX530...........between $225 & $250. Anyone have any ideas on these or others? ???

Personally, I will never darken the doors of Best Buy again.
That might be Best Buy Canada; maybe they are better in the States.

Best Buy here in the states are no better. Poor service..poor "in stock" products.Their prices are not that low unless price matched. I would research camera's online and buy from there. As long as it's not "gray area" and has a US warranty you should be okay. My choice of camera would be a Canon. I have two with no issues. Carl

Thanks guys. I have a Canon Rebel so yeah it'll probably be another Canon........just need a small point & shoot for times I really don't need to tote the big one along.

you wouldn't want to go to  their store but I have had good luck with B &H on  line--my old Canon point  and shoot cameras are lots better than a Nikon and Fuji I have--I mostly use a Canon SL-1 which I got by trading 52000 United Flyer miles that I had no use for.
