Summary: I've had this for a couple years now and still love it -- great in low light, and takes great photos as well as video. I use it to photograph items for my online shop, as well as taping friends' shows and it's been great.

Summary: Bought this Canon M41 for an upcoming trip and have been fooling around with it over this past holiday season and have to say I am still on a learning curve with this unit. That said I am very impressed with its feel of quality when you hold it and am very satisfied with the end result of picture...
