Bought two - happy with one
8 December 2012
Summary: I bought two. The first one had such a low price I jumped at it without reading the description that included "for parts or repair". I don't know if I could ever use it for parts and I probably wouldn't spend the extra money to have it repaired. The second camera is what I gave the attached rating for which I am pleased. I use this camera regularly. My only problem so far is that it indicates "replace battery".
Excerpt: I love Canon digital cameras. The only compaint I have is the delay between the picture taken and when I'm able to take another picture. It's around a 15 second delay and with two small kids that 15 seconds can be the difference between a good picture and a great picture. Other than that I love it, it's durable and the only digital camera I've used in 6 years.
Excerpt: What a great camera. It is lightweight, travels everywhere I need it to go. You only need two batteries and the camera is great on them. It is easy to operate for those of us that do not want a complicated piece of electronics. The image stabilizer does a great job with movements. Additionally, the view finder on the back is so large it is impossible not to get a picture of what you are trying to capture.
Excerpt: Just got this camera and still in my 90 day "test" window but have to say very easy to operate. Without consulting the manual I managed to take a short video and a couple of photos, including one on the timer. Very easy download to computer. Only thing that threw me was when it said to name it I thought they just meant that one picture but it was actually the name for all of the photos on the camera.
Excerpt: I went from a 3MP Kodak camera to this 10MP Canon. I love the camera and features, although I'm still figuring some of them out and I've had it for a year. The pics are fantastic. The camera will recognize faces and magnify them when you focus, so you can watch for a smile. It will also fix red eye automatically sometimes.
Not a good camera for distance or consistent clear pictures!

Excerpt: I recieved this camera for Christmas and way very excited that I got a digital camera, but I found out very soon that I would soon be wishing for another camera. At first I used the camera for everyday pictures, like up close easter pictures, new year pictures, family fun photos, cute pics around the house, etc. The pictures were okay, some came out blurry once in a while, but over all it was an okay camera. Then my daughter joined Cheerleading and I thought GREAT!
Excerpt: This Canon Power-shot camera is a great choice for someone who is looking for a user-friendly, high quality camera for a low cost. It is 10.0 mega-pixels and has a 4x optical zoom. It has some fun little features that you can use including a night time feature which has been great for taken pictures of my little ones sleeping at night. This camera also has a face recognition feature and you can take videos with it.
Excerpt: I have thoroughly enjoyed using my Canon. It is easy to use and loaded with great features. The zoom capabilities work great with my only complaint being that pictures taken in the zoom mode print out a little fuzzy even though the pic on the screen appears clear. So I just take it in regular mode and adjust it on the computer and this alleviates that problem.
Excerpt: My husband bought me this camera the day before my second daughter was to be born. I had been complaining about my old digital taking a long time after taking a picture to be able to take another picture. This one is really really fast when you're outside, but if you're inside and need the flash it takes a while to recycle, unless you use fresh batteries every time.
Summary: This camera won best of the year and was reccomended to me by a friend. I'm not a photographer, and yes, I would have liked a more expensive camera, but my budget is too small for a sldr...so this works for everyday photos. For everyday photos, it's better than any 'average' camera out there. Pictures are large and clear, and although it's not sldr quality, it's very nice. Better than a kodak at best buy! And I paid $45 for this!
