    I am new to digital cameras and am looking for a good camera. After
    much research I've come to the conclusion that the A60 would work
    well, I plan on taking mostlyh 4 by 6 shots. Now, I've recently
    noticed that Canon has the a300. Is this a replacement for the a60? Is
    it similar? Which is better??? Thanks!!!

    To sum up:
    A60 is 2MP, has 3x zoom, manual controls, faster lens (good in poor light),
    longer shutter time (for night shots), better flash range.
    A300 is 3MP, has no zoom, no manual controls and is slightly cheaper.

    I would definately go for the A60 if I had to chose between the two.

    I had an A300 and just bought an A70. You should go for the A60 in
    comparison to the A300.

    The A300 is a great little camera, but with no optical zoom was lacking
    just. The digital zoom on the A300 is ok but nothing special.

    Both the A70 and A300 are very easy to use and take great photos. I thought
    at the time the A300 was a great deal but decided to upgrade.

  4. The A60 is only 2 MP and that will not give you 300 PPI which is
    considered to be photo quality.

    The A300 has a very slow fixed lens with no zoom.

    Go for at least the A70 for decent 4X6 prints. You should really get 4
    MP if you ever want to crop your photos before will
    eventually want to!

    The Pentax Optio 33L is a 3.2 MP camera. Very nice. $199 at
