Goodbye Canon PowerShot SD110

Today is a sad day for me. My hard-working and ever-faithful Canon PowerShot SD110 died. I went to take a texture shot of a curtain that hangs in the doorway to the laundry room at our new place and the screen freaked out. I took the shot anyway but all I got was this:

Now the LCD screen of my camera just shows blips and flashes when I'm in the camera mode. It still shows the menu and pics I've already taken just fine. It seems to me that the image sensor blew up or something.

The little guy has been great since I got him back in 2003 when I was working at Best Buy - small, cheap, versatile, and durable. It's been a great point-and-shoot camera for me.

Anyways, now I have to do some Google Shopping and I have to decide between something like this or something more like this. I'd really like to get a nice digital SLR but my wallet might dictate otherwise.

Take a moment of silence in memory of my good old PowerShot... and then let me know what you think I should get to replace it.

  1. I had a Powershot S1 which served me since 2004. It died of same cause this year. I had moved to DSLR last year and this camera was not in use for a long time. So I took it to India to give to a friend. He powered it on and all he sees is these lines of obscurity. he took it to a repair shop and the diagnosis was the CCD has died. Though it is possible to replace it, it is not worth it since the camera is old anyway.
