Some non-enthusiast friends of mine say the LCD screen on their older (5+ years) Canon Elph has gone south. I'm going to see them tomorrow and they'll be looking for my input on repair options. I'm pretty sure I'm going to tell them to forget repair, pointing out that replacement will likely be less expensive - assuming the proper parts can still be found for their camera anyway. This older camera is a basic Elph with something like a 3x or 5x zoom. My friends are not likely to want to spend a lot of money (they ran a 1990s cell phone until perhaps last year). I see the Canon PowerShot Elph 330 with 10x zoom (24-240mm) is going for $199 these days. It's probably a safe recommendation for them. I'm not sure I can get them up to $299, but I'll try. But - with less than 24 hours notice, what kind of recommendations can the best and brightest at Serious Compacts give me? I haven't played in the very shallow end of the pond in some time.
