This might sound familiar to you. You buy all the magazines, study the on line reviews. I’ve even printed the latter out and used up half a ream of paper! I’ve been hard at work reading about the Canon G7 trying to weigh this up against the A710 and A640. All different animals I know but their possibly better than my current crop of digital cameras, certainly in the pixel count. OK so the G7 doesn’t have RAW output, the flash I understand is feeble on the A710 (well it takes forever to recharge), the A640 takes 4 cells and only has a 4x optical zoom. Then what happens, within a year of all of these models coming out, we’ve got a new Canon G9 announcement (with RAW support), a A650 and A720 all during this month! Sometimes don’t you just wish for a slower rate of change?
