Sharp Color Pictures, Video and Reliable Camera.
3 weeks ago
Summary: Very reliable. We bought 3 of this model over the last 3 years. We loved one which had (by my calculation of all my family, friends albums during this time) approx. 12,000 shots and over 100 video clips that was all working very well until we dropped this camera into the sand while it was on. It finally died with sands getting into the lens and the lens closing mechanism.
Excerpt: Bought this one for my wife as she found the G12 too cumbersome and more camera than needed. We show the images on Panasonic 42 Neoplasma screen and, quite surprisingly, the images are very sharp and the colours are all excellent. In use, the small size is a huge plus. It fires up quickly and the shutter lag is minimal and not a problem. We don't shoot sports or fast action very often and it is unreasonable to expect a camera like this to keep up with a Canon 1dx.
Summary: I previously had a Canon powershot A570 IS which I loved, so when it died I looked for another Canon model. I use the camera for selling things on eBay so it is important that the photos look like the actual item. I was disappointed to discover that the color is washed out no matter how I alter the settings. On my previous camera, I left it on the auto setting and it was great.
Pros: Small size, Easy to change settings
Cons: The color of the photos is washed out even on multiple setting trials., No power cord option
