Default Help me decide which camera to get A70 or A75?

Here is the deal.

Canon a70 with 64 memory card (Refurbished by canon) 1yr W.
cost=$299 Canadian $

Canon A75 with 128 memory card brand new unit
Costs= $399 Canadian $

There is $100 plus Tax differnce but with a75 I am getting a new unit and 64 more memory!!

Is A75 much better than A70 unit?

Which one should I get?

Thank in advance

I'd go for the A75 - improved design, bigger LCD, scenes mode, additional features, possibly improved processor(?), new, bigger memory card...

I agree. The A75 has the bigger LCD. It's 1.8" (w/110,000 pixel)
vs the A70's 1.5" (w/78,000 pixel). This is a big improvement.

There is also a Histogram, if you use that feature

And the A75 did away with the annoying silver around the LCD
of the A70 which annoyed many, many, people.

They probably tinkered with other features a bit as well.

And a 64mb card is not much. You would probably end up
buying a larger card afterwards anyway.

So, IMO, the A75 deal is a better one.
