My dad is thinking of replacing the old aging Canon S45 I gave him.
he wants a smaller lighter P&S.
I think set aside a budget of $500.
Any good recommendation from u guys?
probably something easy to use
F31 is $500, canon ixus depends on which one. The 850IS and 900IS can be quite expensive at about $6-700, simpler models without IS like the ixus 70 are much smaller and cheaper at about $500 too.... so it really depends on what your dad is looking for. I would go with the F31 or ixus 70 based on whether you need high iso capabilities vs size...
