    thinking about a canon s3 is or something like that. anyone have any better suggestions? I'm a digital artist looking for something that can tackle as many creative situations as possible without going the dslr route.

    Well, I'm a photographer and I love shooting in different situations and getting creative. To find a great point and shoot with out going the DSLR route, i highly recommend the Canon Powershot S80. Its Canon's current model. The biggest features for me is the 28mm wide angle lens on it and the manual controls to be creative. There's also the older models the S70 and the S60 if your on a budget, but I would recommend the S80 if you are the true digital artist in photography.

    i absolutly love it. I'm in the process of putting together a photo album on my website, i'll let you know when i get it up.

    This is one picture i took this weekend. The colors really pop in my opinion. She's posing by a giant ruler showing the record snowfall in that town. She's not really that short, the ruler starts off the ground a little bit.
