My trusty little Powershot A590 is having problems. Something to do with a warped opening to the battery compartment is causing the "Change Batteries" sign to come up unnecessarily often, & the screen to go dark. Right now I'm using it with a rubber band wrapped around it, in an attempt to close the battery compartment more firmly. An elegant, but inefficent approach. I'm hoping a little creative fiddling on the inside will solve the problem , but if not, I'll need a new camera for everyday use. I'm trying to choose between the Canon ELPH 300 (a good price & maybe all I really need?) & the more expensive Canon S 95 (twice as expensive, but clearly better, & sturdier). I have a Canon Rebel, but don't carry it around all the time, so I need a good back-up. Any recommendations, anyone?
