Summary: Ive had this camera for quite a few years now. Its is a very handy camera to have due to its size. It also shoots quickly (probably due to no optical zoom) and shoots decent pictures. This is a no nonsense camera. Straight point and shoot anyone can use it.
Excerpt: This camera is absolutely wonderful. First of all its a beautiful design, it looks very trendy and because it is so small its easy to bring with you no matter where you go. The pictures come out very clear and the fact that the camera rotates the picture automatically makes this camera very special.
Summary: I love this camera I love the macro, the clarity someone into photography told me it has especially clear pictures BECAUSE it has no optical zoom and I have been very pleased. The only thing is I would like optical zoom, so I am thinking about getting another camera, but DEFINITELY sticking within...
Summary: I bought this when it first came out a couple of years ago. At the time it was the smallest 4MP out there, and since my goal was to go "small," i decided that i could live without an optical zoom. While it served me well, I will tell anyone now that we all need optical zoom.
Photos have great color & clarity. Optical zoom not a big deal.

Summary: I recently took this lil cam on a trip overseas and am extremely happy with the pictures that it took. Color and clarity are top notch, what I expect from Canon. It's very compact and easy to carry around. Just be sure it's in a safe pocket or bag, you wouldn't want to leave it behind.
Summary: I'm not really involved in the digital photo scene so this won't be a super technical review. I purchased this camera because of the size. It's about the size of a mobile phone, smaller than some, larger than others. It fits perfectly in the phone sized pocket of my shoulder bag.
Summary: I will buy another Canon Elph when this one finally dies. With the option of going up to a 1 GB SD card, the future is wide open. It is possible to buy a lesser brand 4MP camera for a lot less, but the extra Canon quality is worth paying for if you plan to have your camera for a long time.
Summary: let me note that if i were rating this camera among all other small cameras, i would be giving it a 5. however, among all cameras in general, including giant ones as big as your arm that cost twice as much, it understandably gets a 4. this is a great little camera.
Summary: if you need a new camera, want something to fit in your pocket, this ones for you! 4 megapixels, more than enough, this thing is TINY! id highly recommend this to anybody, if you don't got the money for it, consider getting one for FREE!
