Never heard of renting a camera before. I'll look into it. Is that just like buying over time?
That is quite a bit cheaper than the others, I'll read the review, thanks

Nope. LensRentals.com just rents stuff. I've used them for lenses, but they also rent cameras, lighting, video gear, etc. They sell stuff after it's been rented a few times, but their main business is renting.

Unfortunately, their selection of P&S cameras is a bit lean. That Canon was the only one I could find that sold for less than $500. But this way, you can rent it for a time, and get accustomed to it's quirks before you decide to buy one.

It's got the larger image sensor, so image quality should be pretty good, and the lens is supposed to be pretty good too. That puts it on par with Sony's RX100 series, but for less money.
