Here's what we bought: Canon Powershot s5 IS
We just picked it up last night so I haven't had a chance to play with it much. We did a lot of reading up on cameras and this one kept coming back to us with great reviews. It has a 12x optic zoom which should come in handy at school functions and sporting events. There are 3 different manuals to go through! It's snowing like crazy outside, so it's a perfect day to sit back and learn all about my new camera!!!
