Digital Camera recommendations?

15 Jan 2004

I need a new camera

The time has finally come to replace the Hicks family digital camera – a toaster-sized 1mp beast that weighs a tonne and waits a fortnight inbetween photos. After trying my brother-in-law’s Canon Ixus recently, my mind was made up. The quality was incomparable.

So, before I head out, does anyone have any recommendations? I’m ideally looking for around 4 Megapixels and it must work with OS X (although I think most do anyway). Can’t decide whether I should bite the bullet and make it an SLR (such as the Canon 300D) or go compact (like the Ixus). I must find one that is has little (or no?) ‘downtime’ between photos. It will be used for anything from snaps of offspring in various pointy hats to close ups of nature.

Let me know your wisdom.
