Hee Hee! http://www.pcworld.com/reviews/product/55488/review/powershot_a1100_is.html !!

It's the great great great grandchild of my A10 - somewhere between 'the latest' and 'obsolete' point and shoot camera with some relatively intuitive manual controls, which is what I wanted. It's pretty much the same camera as the A10, only it has more features, better resolution, and doesn't have the compatibility issues.

Here are some huge (~4 meg) photos to illustrate its closeup capability. This camera takes closeups comparable to the A10.

A1100:

Amy Brown statue -- I realized why I don't like the Amy Brown statue, even though I love the concept. It's because the painting details are not well-done. I didn't realize that till I saw this picture. Click the picture and view it at full size to see what I mean (part of eyebrow missing, ear smudged, lips painted outside the lip line, etc.)

Arwen action doll closeup -- Again, click the picture to see why this doll is beautiful in concept only...

A10: Aska Cy-Girl Action Doll -- this action doll is my favorite picture taken with the A10 and is also my favorite action doll - her features are wonderfully detailed and not excessively made up looking. More info here about Aska.

Here's a more reasonably sized (400K) picture of the snow outside now:

I haven't found a better one for the price (marked down from 199 to 119 at Micro Center). I had upgraded from the A10 to a Fuji Finepix for a while (until I gave up on the Fuji and went back to the A10). The Fuji's pictures were miserable compared to the A10's. Maybe there was some way to get good pictures out of it, but I never figured out what it was.

Painting details being askew can ruin a good statue. I love statuary and sculpture, though! In the past, I collected wildlife statuary; I've got several in storage at my folks' place in Houston-- a couple of tigers, a horse, a panther, a wolf, and, incongrously, a small statue of the archangel Michael defeating the devil. lol. Here, I have a Jessica Galbreth statue, of her Yule faery, purchased at the Celtic Faire this summer. She holds a place of prominence on my rather cluttered dresser.

Congrats on the camera! May you take many wonderful pictures with it.

That sounds like quite a collection. They seem to multiply. Eventually they start needing their own display case...
