I am a beginner and want to buy a Canon PowerShot and would like to know what the best model. I was looking between SD870 IS and SD1100 IS. Which is better? Someone recommended another Powershot model? Thanks

I wouldn't think that any of the SD series would be the best PowerShot model. Most folks would probably select the:

Or perhaps the SX10, S5IS, or A2000 PowerShot models.

Perhaps you could elaborate a little on the type of photography you're most interested in, someone could help you selct a model that would be best for you.

It probably would be the SD990 IS;

Or the SD 880 IS;

As an alternative option, you can buy these days from ebay an old Canon Powershot A80 for 30-35 USD. It's old but you can initiate underwater photography for a small amout of money. Here few pics I sot with the powershot: http://digitalunderwater.netgoo.org/...ulawesi-t2.htm
