Canon PowerShot A630 review
I have Nikon D50 and A630 as a second camera and for me it is dreamteam
A630 has superb image quality, good control over exposition, panorama mode, incredible battery livetime, pivoted screen. Histogram is the only thing i'm missing.
My first choide for compact was Nikon S10, but forget about it...( I've used S10 one day and changed it in shop for A630 because of hotpixels and overall average quality)
