Hi Folks - my trusty old Olympus 5050 just died and I need a new camera pronto. The main use is to photograph my wife's paintings for our records, but we also often print out images (up to 12"x12" or so) on our Epson printer. Of course we also woulduse this for taking photos of just about anything we come across that my wife might like to paint.

Money is an issue with us right now, so after enough homework on digitals to make my head spin, I have pretty much decided on a Canon PowerShot A540. I like the 6 megapixels, as 5 was plenty on our old camera. I sure dont need more megapixels at this time....plus I can get this for about $200 from circuit city.

What do you think? Is this a good choice? Or is there a better camera you'd recommend?

Thanks a million for your help on this.....

There are a number of very good P&S cameras at the $200 price point but I see no reason the A540 wouldn't work for you if the Olympus worked for you.
