Summary: This is now my sixth year of using this camera. It still functions beautifully albeit the numerous external scratches from being thrown around inside my bags. The only thing I wish it had was a bigger preview screen, but I view photos on my computer anyway so that's still not a big deal. Since I'm not a professional photographer I never felt the need to upgrade to a higher megapixel camera.
Summary: Bought this older (mint) Cannon because you read all the pro reviews and it usually rates better than the two newer sx20-30 models, even has features they have dropped on the new ones. New ones suffer in photo quality because you can only pack so much mega pixels and zoom into the same body and small sensor(sometimes bigger NOT better). After all didn't you buy your camera to take nice pictures? Want to take videos buy a camcorder..
Summary: I have many cameras, and use a Nikon DSLR. But for Point and Shoot, CANON RULES! This is now an older model, and I just got one new, they are still around if you look. I just love it. I wish it used CF cards like my other cameras but it uses the SD card. I would get a minimum of 256mb. And get a spare battery. I have 5 digital cameras now, all for different reasons. This little jewel is now my carry around camera. And I just love it.
Summary: This camera is extremely stylish and compact. Great for snapshots and other pictures of friends and things like that, but if you plan on taking lots of pictures of sporting events or nature, go with a camera with better optical zoom. Other than the zoom, the feature-set is simple and straightforward, perfect for someone who just wants pictures without the fuss.
