Not-so techie

Ever since I've seen Ian Wright's advertisement on Discovery channel, I have added the Canon SX 30 IS in my wish list.  We were at the mall the other day and when I saw it on display, I was tempted to buy it, but decided otherwise.  I have yet to find out how efficient this gadget is, and I'd like to check several canon digital camera reviews first.  Although Canon's always been our brand, it helps to know if I can ever manage to use this gadget, I'm a disaster when it comes to new gadgets!
