I refuse to spend money on a new camera when I have thousands of Air Miles sitting there, idly by, just waiting to be cashed in. Afterall, I am of a firm belief that with Air Canada's kick*ss Elite benefits (hello, Lounge!!) and WestJet's new reward plan, Air Miles will soon be obsolete. I will then personally drop kick myself if I haven't used my 4000 odd miles. Personal abuse aside, how will ANYONE ever earn enough miles for ANYTHING without WestJet on board? I can't buy enough gas or booze to go to the neighbour's on Air Miles, let alone do something worthwhile!
So, I think a camera is a very responsible purchase. Especially since I don't have enough miles for a big screen TV or a wicked trip.
My wish list is small:
- Minimum 10 MP resolution.
- Image stabilizer. Use it then use a camera without.. you'll never go back.
- I hope this is the last camera I ever buy.
Here are the contenders:
