  • Excerpt: These are on big discount from Canon UK on "Refurb" at the moment at under £100 and it`s a real bargain at this price, the newer 510 version replaced the buttons with a touchscreen which was more of a hinder than a help (too easy to press stuff when handling the cam) and didn`t improve anything worthwhile so the 500 is the one to get .....

  • Excerpt: This slim camera offers a small switch for easy switching between auto and manual modes. However for some odd reason image stabilization only works in auto mode. The battery burns out fast on this model, especially if you're shooting video. Those two issues are so far the only negatives I've found.

Great camera that takes great pictures

  • Summary: I needed a camera quick, I was on one coast, and my wife was on another. I was house hunting so that we could relocate and the camera I had died. Not wanting to make a hasty decision I did some research and narrowed it down to this camera based on the reviews I saw. It is a small compact camera, it does have an automatic mode, and if you want to tweak it has a manual mode.

An excellent low light camera with a few unexpected features.

Anthony Pantliano "The Photo Guy", Amazon

  • Summary: The Canon 500 HS is a phenomenal deal for such a capable camera; it's loaded with great features and nice photo quality. Design wise the Canon is fairly stylish and looks like a bar of slightly melted soap. The brown version is very attractive with a metallic lens barrel and a chocolate brown colored body. The camera is very small and light and will easily slip into a coat pocket or a small case. The front of the camera is done in metal, while the rest is plastic.

  • Excerpt: This camera looks & feels tiny but its features are impressive. 12x zoom of course compromises its f value (just f/3.4 at wide angle) but apparently its HS system (10.1mp cmos sensor) compensates well; even in low light you get reasonable to good pictures without flash. Zooming is smooth, and the full range is available during recording of movies (although the noise of the zoom drive is audible).

Wife likes it.

  • Summary: I bought this for my wife as a Christmas gift. I did plenty of research and found this to be the best bet for the money. During the research process only reservations about this camera was that some users seemed to have trouble with the touch screen and complained about the short battery charge. After taking this into consideration, I felt it was worth the risk considering the alleged advantages - so I bought it. So here's the scoop after 2+ months of use: 1.

  • Summary: I would give this camera five stars. The only thing it was missing for me is panaramic view. It's good looking, easy to carry and functions great. I also got brownie point for making such a thoughtful choice. I love it. Love the colors it comes in too!
