Default Canon A590 upgrade

I have a Canon A590, my wife uses it at times for mostly indoor dog training events, I want to get her something that won't be going backwards in specs and a bit smaller, something she can also hook up to a tv and show the pics, preferably something with HDMI, any suggestions on models & brands to fill the bill.


thanks

Chet

Hi there, Chet-

Welcome to the Forum. We glad you dropped by.

The Sony H-20 will accept HDMI.

Have a great weekend.

thanks for the reply, anything a bit smaller than Canon A590 that will give the H-20 a run. I think the H-20 is a bit on the big side for her.

Chet-

The SD-1200 would be OK, but, compared to the Sony H-20, it offers lesser image quality, less built-in flash performance, and I am not sure it has a HGMI connection.

thanks again Sarah

The sd1200 only has an A/V out no HDMI. so now I am back where I originally started, it's either going to be the Canon SD870 or the Sony H-20, going to shop around for a good price and going to look for a cable out from the camera to an HD tv

thanks
Chet
ps is the cable strictly Sony or are there others

Chet as I understand it-

Yes, the cable is unique to Sony.

Chet-

I would look at www.sonystyle.com, which is a Sony owned e-store.
