Free Digital Camera?

This is DHL's idea of a front porch delivery:

Package on the Walkway

Inside was my new, yet already obsolete Canon SD200 3.2 megapixel Digital Elph.

I needed a new point and shoot to replace my S200, which has been giving me trouble with weird shutter lag, among other things. It's a cool camera, though.

The new one is teeny, with a bigger screen (that's apparently prone to cracking, though).

It got it for about the same price as I got the other one, just over $200, including a 1 gig SD card (yay, another new format), delivery pending.

There was an article I read this past week (might have been Wall St. Journal at work, not sure) that mentioned that many camera manufacturers had models with defective Sony chips in them, Canon included. They will repair/replace for free, from what I recall. Check their Web site.

I took a look at the article -- I think my model is okay. Thanks -- Joe
