First of all, this isn’t my only camera. It’s my go-to camera, though. Why did I buy the sd500 and waterproof case? Well, the case really followed the camera. The camera? I liked the sd400 (at the time, it was one of the best compacts out there), and this was the newer one. And it was on sale – the sd550 had just come out.
And addition reason: I was motivated. A burglary had relieved us of all cameras (along with the video of my daughter’s 1st birthday – I still wish eternal suffering to those bastards), and with a year-old daughter, I needed something. The case followed that summer.
