Canon IXUS 50 revived

After purchasing my Canon IXUS 55 several months ago, it met its tragic demise only a month afterwards. Turns out Canon does not give warranty to water leak in their waterproof cases! i spent an additional 25USD on getting the camera "looked at" and it was given back to me opened, unfixed and totally useless. Canon has a terrible policy where they don't repair or warrant water damage even though it's their own water proof case. so after a month of usage, a few underwater photos in Hawaii with the sea turtles... my case, along with the camera's life came to an end. (they won't even replace the faulty O ring damn it). well, being a sucker that i am, i went out to purchase the SAME camera at full price. yeah, i guess i was really happy with the camera itself and hope that history will not repeat itself. anyway, i've said all the good things about the camera previously, and perhaps i should mention the downfalls. in a bright, outdoor scene the "purple fringing" is really obvious and horrid. some grittiness in all the photos taken as well. it doesn't compare to the 5MP Sony V1 when it comes to quality, but you don't expect much from a micro-sized, 5MP speed demon of a compact camera. i'm happy enough with it to try again, so we'll see what happens, i can't stand not having a camera with me..
