    Doing the Canon loyalty program for our defective SD900. Choices are:

    SX110IS - $125
    SD890IS - $150

    I'm leaning towards the SX110IS for the longer zoom. Thoughts?

    Loyalty program...if you have a defective/non-working Canon digicam you can send it in and get a refurbished model for a discounted price:

    Well both are great cameras, both handle pretty much identically, both produce about the same quality pics. The important differences are:

    SD - smaller (don't sell this point short), Li-ion battery, 4x zoom
    SX - bigger (ditto, won't fit in a pocket), AA batteries, 10x zoom

    So really it just comes down to which of those feature sets you prefer. To me the only advantage to the SX is the zoom since I find AAs to be more of a pain, but some people like the standard-ness "just in case." As regards size, I find I carry my A series less places than I did my SD700... then again, my A series is bulkier than either of these, so YMMV.

    I never really felt lacking in the zoom department with 4x on an ultra-compact point and shoot, so I would probably go with the SD.

    Go for the SD. The small size is what you want. I can't get over the convenience of being able to keep a camera in my pocket which takes great pictures after have an SLR for so long....
