I have a dilemma: do I want an iPod, or a Canon digital Elph (or similar) camera?
I don’t really NEEEED either of them, but I’ve been in the market for both for a long time. The Canon Elph I have now is the greatest camera I have EVER used, but it takes me months to go through 25 exposures, and by the time I get the pictures developed, I’m in no need of the photos anymore. I often find myself not taking photos because of this, and I miss out on a lot of great shots. I got the camera in highschool, and I think it’s time for an upgrade.
On the other hand, the 6GB mp3 player I have, was great when I bought it because I could fit my entire collection in it, but it’s really too bulky to bring it anywhere conveniently now. I find myself wanting to put it in my pocket to free up my hands, but it’s huge (size of a discman) and won’t fit if I have anything else in there. It’s also pretty sucky on batteries (4 NiMH AA’s last about 2 hours,) and I’ve found that 6GB isn’t enough variety for me lately.
I’d really like to get either the 20GB or 40GB iPod, or Canon PowerShot SD300 Elph 4.0MP, or the Canon PowerShot S500 5.0MP.
Anyone have either of these? How are they? Worth the dough? Help a sista out… I’m pretty clueless about these things.
