I also have a eye-fi SD card, which helps in transfering pictures quickly on my computer and internet. The eye-fi cards automatically connects to wifi networks, without me having to do anything or remove the card from the camera when it comes in touch with a known wifi network and uploads my pictures directly from my card to the internet. Pretty neat technology ! Love it.
I also have another camera – the Olympus Tough 6000 as a backup camera. I had initially bought that camera before the Cannon, due to it’s tough-ness, water-proof, shock proof, weather proof etc.. but all these proofs made the picture quality pretty bad. While it’s a strong camera, the pictures are poor and the processor is slow. Was too late to return it. So, I got stuck with it. I use it as a backup camera and also to take panoramas, as it does in camera stitching for panoramas. That’s the best feature I like about the tough.
I had bought that Cannon Camera during the 2009 Black Friday Thanksgiving sales for about $160 I think which was a pretty good deal at that time, but I just checked online and about $160 is the current retail price in online stores. I bet Cannon has a newer better version of this same camera, hence drop in price.
