I also bought this camera as soon as it came out in May. I am a scrapbooker...and along with that comes wanting great pictures. I Minolta DiMage Z1 digital before this and it served us well, but just didn't allow me the freedom I wanted with cropping, etc. (it was only 3 megapixels). I LOVE my new canon!! Most of the basics I figured out without even having to read the book...as I'm learning some of the more complicated features, I am consulting my book and it is a great resource. I'm not one to manually set everything (at least not yet), so I LOVE all the preset modes.

I recently bought this camera to replace a pathetic toshiba I was using to shoot beach volleyball tournaments. The Canon is taking magazine quality images with no arm or ball blur. The pictures are so incredible. Feel free to look for yourself: http://www.MissionBeachVolleyball.com/ Go to the photo gallery page. Any gallery above or including "CBVA Mission Beach 7/15/2006" in the drop down is taken with the Canon. I am so stoked on this camera.
