help me decide

I’m considering getting a new camera to take to SXSW next month…although I’ve also been thinking about it for probably a year.

Should I buy….

I kinda need to do this now, because I’ve been putting off making any sort of a decision for almost a month.

Financially, I’m leaning towards the Sony, which I think would be good enough, although I find myself lusting after the digital elphs (elves?).

I love taking pictures, but am by no means a photography snob. My 1.3 MP Sony has been good enough, quality-wise, for 3 1/2 years. I just don’t take as many as I’d like because it’s so freaking bulky, and now the battery life is getting wonky.
