Default Do newer Canons get the E18 error?

I have an S2 IS that has the E18 right now and won't do a thing. I am just going to have to replace it I guess. I've been loyal to canon, but now I'm worried. Do the newer point and shoot cameras have this error problem?

It does not seem to be that problem it used to be. I have the A620, and the newer G9, and have never had the E18 problem on either camera. I haven't heard much about this on the forums I visit, but there are various web sites that are devoted to covering it. Here's a link that shows statistics on E18 for various camera models, as well a recent reports by folks experiencing it.

that's great to hear. I'm looking at the SX10 and also the panasonic FZ28. Until I can save up for those, I need something dirt cheap to get me by for a few months while I research and save.

Consider the Canon A1000 IS while you save up. It's going for around $130 now. It's on Steve's Best list for entry level cameras.

Or, you could shop around to buy a used camera from someone, and even consider disposable film cameras that include digitizing your images to a CD plus prints, like this Kodak product.
