Horribly out of date, yet still used as a main camera!

Summary: Obviously a very old compact. However, this camera is beautifully made and has an excellent lens as well as a larger than normal sensor. The pics are fantastic. Being only 4mp will put some off who think their pics will one day be blown up to house-wall size. The camera feel substantial, almost like expensive jewellery. Their were endless problems within the design which means that many have been thrown away.
Summary: I like this camera because it takes fine pictures and does what I expect in a job situation.I need this camera to make accurate time/date stamped pictures required for the type work I repairing houses. I like it because it is small compact and reasonably easy to use.It was also cost effective for a job site where tools are always around.
Summary: I was finally able to fix the memory card error I was getting on my Canon S400. After almost throwing the camera away, I did a last search online and found a way to fix it that worked for a lot of people. What you need to do is open the camera and remove the camera's internal battery and insert it again.
Pros: compact but easy to handle, solid feel, excellent photo quality, great movie mode, easy to use. I bought this as my first really nice digital camera. It's so easy to use, my kids use it with ease.
