Replacement for Canon Elph SD1200 IS
The Canon Elph SD1200 IS bit the dust care of my wheel chair spokes. An extended warranty from Bestbuy (ugh) is netting me $149. They're offering me the Canon Powershot Elph 100 HS for the $149.

I like Canon, have been using Canon for ages. But am too overloaded with grad school to properly compare my options. If you were to buy one of the following, which would you select:
Canon Powershot A2200 - I know... Not this one...
Canon Powershot A3300 - decent functionality but per Canon,
it's an "A" series...
Canon Powershot Elph 100 HS.

Or I can spring up for the Elph 300 HS.

Which way would you go?

Canon says to look at the SD4500IS but the reviews are iffy especially the battery life.

OR if you don't like the above, advice in the $149 - $200 range. Functionality of the above, good zoom, battery life, HD video would be nice, wide angle, smart and flexible flash, flexible ISO settings.

If you liked the Canon Elph SD1200 IS, you have one additional option. They are still available new. I would think that BestBuy would be obligated to provide a like kind replacement.
Good luck in school - study hard...
