Buying a digital camera is not as easy as it was in the early days of the digital imaging revolution, and that’s good for consumers. Today’s digital camera marketplace offers even more complex imaging products and shutterbugs of every stripe have more choices than they’ve ever had before, but sorting through the flood of imaging options available might give even the Dali Lama cause for frustration.

Once you’ve eliminated the cameras that are too big, too small, too complex, too simple, and too expensive, consider your short list very critically. If you own a smart phone, then you’ll probably like the SD3500 IS, but if you don’t like touchscreen devices, you probably won’t like the SD3500 IS.
