Our family's Canon PowerShot SD 300 is a fairly old edition, but we still love it. We bought it at Sam's Club a few years ago, and it's still working today. It's pretty durable, as we dropped it a few times, but all the damage done was just a few scratches. The resolution is decent. The pictures that it takes are pretty clear, but of course, I have seen clearer. It is pretty small, so can fit in a lot of places. It's perfect for traveling. When we go on vacation or somewhere, we just stick it in a pocket in the side of the backpack we always carry, and it is perfectly fine there. We don't have to worry about it. It has a pretty good memory, as we can store thousands of pictures and videos on the camera before we have to start emptying it out into our computer. It's also very easy to use. My sister learned to use it when she was four, so if she can learn to use it quickly, anyone can. I would recommend buying this camera, as it is very reliable and works very well. It's a bit pricey, but it's well worth the money.
