I had a Canon Powershot A60 for a little over a year. I was very pleased with it but unfortunately, one of my dogs killed it. :-)
I loved my Canon so I'm thinking about just upgrading to the a75 or a85...but if anyone has any other suggestions,I'd love to hear them.
I'd like to spend somewhere around the 300-400 range but I'd be willing to pay a bit more if I really liked the camera.
90% of the pictures I take are of my dogs, so it would have to be fairly good with action shots. I also take a lot of pictures indoors (and macro shots) as well. Zoom isn't too big of an issue.. 3x should be fine. I don't need anything too fancy but since I'm getting more into photography, some manual settings would be nice. I'd also like to be able to take video clips with sound (size isn't terribly important).
