Summary: I have owned quite a few cameras in my time and this is by far the best. It takes sharp pictures and is ready for another shot RIGHT AWAY which is very important to me. I have not even learned to use all the extra cool stuff it can do like fish eye lens, but it is easy to get to these options with just a little time spent.
Summary: The old canon elph camera that I bought 7 years ago finally broke. The flap that holds the Scandisk wouldn't close anymore so I had to replace it. I've always been a Canon girl. They have a great and reliable product. I don't buy other brands. Love the hotpink color. I wish the prices don't change becuase of the color. I had to pay $15 more to get a pink one but oh so worth it.
Summary: This is a nice, light weight, compact camera. I have been impressed with the picture quality. The only problem I have, is the auto focus. We have a new grandchild, and by the time I push the button and the auto focus has to adjust, I usually miss the smiles! I am very pleased with the purchase price I got on Amazon, especially with the free one day shipping! I had this camera in less than 15 hours from the time I ordered it!
Summary: Even though I thought I did enough research nothing but disappointed with this camera, I am returning it. I tried working with it for a couple hours but could not get good results at all. Poor color, everything is too bright & looks blown out, software doesn't actually work on Windows 7 even with their update. I can get better pictures with my iPhone. Camera came with a gouge on the bottom so I suspect it was returned before.
Summary: I purchased this camera to replace my aging Powershot SD870IS, which I had been very pleased with. The 100 HS exceeded my expectations. After reading several reviews and looking at images taken by this camera on various photo sharing websites, I decided to jump in. I only had it for about a month when I purchased one as a gift for my mother. The pictures are sharp and show great detail especially in low light.
Summary: Bought this for my girlfriend as a backup. She has a Canon T2i, but having to always lug around a DSLR cameral is a drag. She loves having this for just going out and snapping photos for day to day types of things. The camera is pretty quick to turn on and be ready to shoot. The battery life seems to also be very satisfactory. The optical zoom is a nice feature, and works well. Digital zoom is useless and is just a marketing gimmick for all manufacturers.
