I have had my Canon Power Shot Sx20 for about three years and it has been through the ringer. I had dropped it a couple of times. But that was not the problem. I constantly removed the card so I could download the pictures into my laptop. Doing this caused the cards to break. This last time it broke inside the camera and now when I put the card back in the camera it will not snap in. Now for everyone that knows me, knows that I can’t go a day without my camera. I went and got a new Canon Rebel T3i and it is amazing. The pictures are so amazing in every type of setting.
