Back in January, I asked you all for recommendations for a replacement Hicks family digital camera. If anyone is interested to know what happened, I finally plumped for the Canon IXUS 400 – a diminutive beauty.

In the end, I decided to keep my 35mm SLR for anything really creative. The main advantage of the Ixus is that it is so small I can really take it anywhere. Yet the features and quality were amazing, especially the macro facility – much more powerful than I expected. Of course, less than a week after I bought it, the Ixus 500 came out – same price, more pixels. Typical.

Using the simple wonder of Photostack, I’ve thrown together an album of sample images taken by the Missus and me.


Digital Camera recommendations?

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.

    Just tried the Vegan Sausage Roll from Greggs. Really good - nicer than the meat one, and the thought of Piers Morgan frothing at the mouth makes it even tastier
