Replace an S1IS with an SX30?
Aug 2, 2012

My S1IS just bit the dust - CCD died. Canon says it is out of its service life - ended 4/30/12. So they are offering to replace it via the "Canon Loyalty Program" with an SX30IS for $225 and change.

Is this a reasonable deal? Are there less expensive reasonable alternatives? The S1 was not my only cam, I got it several years ago for its long zoom and the occasional movie clip, and I don't need the latest-and-greatest.

Any input is appreciated.
