I'm sorry if this subject has been covered before, but I'm wondering if Canon's new models still suffer from the dreaded e18 error. I have an SD400 that no longer works due to e18. Up till now, I loved the camera. However, I'm reluctant to buy another Canon if it will flake out on me within the next year or so due to e18 or another error.

Also, I'm looking at the new PowerShot SD 1000. Can anyone recommend an equivelant or better camera that is simlarly priced ($200-250) and similarly sized?

I share your concern regarding the durability of the SD 1000 since Canon has certainly shown that they don't stand behind their cameras. The e18 error plagued far too many Canon models, and the LCD screen that inexplicably cracked was a problem, also. Canon's denial that the problems existed showed a lack of ethics and honesty. I haven't kept up with the newer models so I won't offer a specific recommendation, however, I suggest you look at some of the ultra-compacts that have longer than 3x zoom. As Steve's says often in his reviews, extra zoom really adds to the "fun factor".

I have (love it!) a Canon S3IS. I bought the Canon adapter/hood combo and leave the adapter fulltime on the cam. In this way the lense is pretty well protected against side bumps that could harm it, and it gives a better grip too. And yes, 12 x zoom is a fun factor .
