    I will still take pictures with my Canon Elph SD870 Power Shot - especially in inclement weather or at the beach. It has zero controls, except a zoom and it has taken some great pictures, if I do say so myself.:biggrin:

    My wife still uses a Canon EOS300D / Rebel: the camera that broke the digital SLR price hold.

    Slow etc., but image is quality is fine. She loves it.

    I do and in my favourite cameras are all over 5 years old, the Ricoh GRD I, the Panasonic LC1 and the Epson RD1. Even after all this time I have yet to find a camera that produces better images than these three. Even with all the new cameras coming out I would not know what to replace these with since there is no real alternative that would come close.

    I occassionally use the Sony W12 that lies around here, and rarely use the Olympus E1 with 14-54. I probably should take that one out more: I still find my way around it blindfolded, and it still takes great pictures.

    I'm still chuckling over the G1 being referred to as an oldie.

    I'll have to get out my other G2 - Canon, 10+ years old - and give it a whirl for old times' sake! 4 MP, $750 in 2001. And we gripe about today's prices....

    Is the Canon G9 an oldie? I'll never find a camera that pleases me more, regardless of price.

    G9 came out in late 2007. In this age of new cameras every few months, I believe it would qualify as an oldie...:wink:

    I have a question. How does the Leica D-Lux version 1 stack up these days? Only 3MP but can be had pretty cheap used. I was thinking of getting one for happy snaps.
