If you are looking for a camera with above average performance and average image quality, than the Canon Powershot SD430 may be what you're looking for. It's not the speed or shot quality that makes this camera special, it's the WiFi capability that makes this camera stand out from the crowd. Keep reading as we take a closer look.
If you are not interested at all in buying a digital camera that has WiFi capability, than you may want to look elsewhere, because the added cost of the WiFi is significant. The MRSP of this camera is $500, but I have seen it as low as $370 as of June 2007.
If you take out the SD430's WiFi capability, you are left with its little brother, the SD400. The SD400 has all of the same features except for the WiFi, and it also has a much smaller price tag at around $150 as of June 2007. So if you don't want the WiFi, save your money and go with the SD400 which is a solid camera in itself.
The SD430 was released in early 2006, and immediately set itself apart from the crowd with its WiFi capabilities. Kodak and Nikon also introduced WiFi digital cameras in 2006, but they don't have the same capabilities as the SD430. Nikon was the first company to release a compact digital camera that was WiFi equipped with the introduction of the P1 and P2 models in 2005. WiFi has grown since then, and we can see that in the SD430 with the multiple applications that can be accomplished through the built-in WiFi feature.
