Canon Power Shot Pro 70
I have a Pro 70, 1.8MP camera. About 5 years old.

I am taking a trip to Europe in May.
Should I upgrade to a better pixel count? Most pictures witl be of family and scenes. With some document closeups.
I mostly run the Pro70 on auto.
I like the fact I can plug the camera or card into my computer or reader and adjust the photos in Photoshop.

Any suggestions about a newer model or stick with what I have?
I like the description of the new Cannon Pro 1.

It's your call as always. If what you have is working and does what you need done - do you need a new camera?

The Pro70 is a bit "old" by today's standards but it is a good camera and you can definitely stick a lot of memory cards in it.

The newer cameras do offer USB plug-n-play with modern OS like WinXP which makes for faster downloads. Personally I use a cardreader so I don't care what kind of I/O interface is on the camera.

If you want more zoom, more resolution and a much faster camera then yes, buy one of the new ones. The Powershot S1 IS is a great camera, a long 10x zoom with stabilization, 3 megapixels of resolution and a super movie mode - all for $499. It's also smaller and lighter than your Pro70 and runs on regular AA batteries.
