I am not blessed with exuberant amounts of money, and well if I did, I wouldn't be asking you for help.
I am getting a new camera, but need some advice. This is where you come in! 
I have decided this much. I don't want don't need a Canon Rebel, but I just need a point and shoot camera for now, but I want something that is actually going to work for me and take some good pictures.
It is between these two cameras:

Canon SX120 IS Digital Camera

Nikon Coolpix L110 Digital Camera

I have had a Canon camera all my life, and have loved them so much, my husband has a Nikon, and I just don't like it that much. It seems to me that it takes forever to take a picture, and when I am taking a picture of a 2 year old, it has to be fast. 
Plus I like all the features of my Canon. 
I guess what I am trying to say is, can you convince me to get a Nikon?

Yes, I realize that Canon has a more comparable camera to this Nikon, the 

Canon PowerShot SX1 IS, 

but I hate the stupid viewing screen thingy. Any suggestions??

I'm not sure what the prices are on these two, but I don't think you could go wrong with the Canon Rebel. We bought one last year, a 10 megapixel, and it takes amazing pics. Just a thought :) They've also really come down in price.

Of the two choices you have- I'm a Canon girl too, so I love them. But the red Nikon is definitely prettier. :P

okay, so I actually had thi same problem during xmas. So I bought both with the intention of returning the one I least liked. I found that the Nikon had a lot of dark grainy spots, less sharpness to the pictures, did do as well in indoor shots and was, overall, a disappointment. I liked it's shape and weight but I didn't want to compromise picture quality. The Canon is amazing, never fails, and captures in any light well. It's pretty quick too. I also looked them both up in consumer reports and the canon was recommened and got top notch ratings. Go with the Canon, you won't regret it. I always get compliments on my pic and the camera itself.
Hope this help :)
