"I am a low-tech, older person. I need to purchase a decent Canon Point and Shoot camera for use primarily on eBay, Etsy. I have been looking on eBay at SX100 cameras, which seem adequate for my purposes. I had previously used Canon A-series (A-570) which were pretty primitive but worked for a long time until they broke.
I want a built-in flash and not too many decisions to make or features to select, so will mostly use auto focus. Adjusting the light is sometimes important, as is taking close-ups.
Am I looking at the right series. or should I upgrade a little, without getting into too much technology or expense?
Thank you very much." Mary
Thanks for your question about purchasing a cheap camera for photographing products for eBay or Etsy. Welcome to the world of too many choices. My wife and I had one of the A series of Canons a long time ago too. I don't use, nor do I recommend point and shoot cameras anymore, but I'll try to answer the your question.
