Default CONFUSED as to which to buy!

I take lots of pictures of my 7 granddaughters doing lots of things indoors and out. I scrapbook a lot. I had an Olympus C-60 which I loved but the screws have fallen out and it is a little big. My son wants me to get a Canon. I have been looking at the SD960, SD940, SD990 and the SD780. I would like a good zoom, pretty good low light, fast retake of pictures, video, not too many controls to figure out and all the other thing everyone wants in the prefect point and shoot camera. I looked at the Canon site and compared but for a novice that only confused me. Which would be the best!!!??? Please help. Thanks

Welcome to the Forum. We're pleased that you dropped by.

The Canon SD-series are not know for their zoom. The Canon SX-200 is approximately the same size and offers 12X optical zoom, as well as HD video, all in a small easy to use package. That might provide more flexibility for you.

Have a great day.

Default pop up flash

I'm not sure I'm replying in the right place but I don't think I would like the pop up flash on the sx200.
