Summary: This camera fits the expression "You get what you pay for." Seems it's always giving me the symbol to use a tripod to avoid blurring. In fact, too many pictures do come out blurry, especially if I use the zoom, which doesn't provide much enlargement. Also, things always seem farther away than they are. Eventually, I may invest in a better digital camera, more like the far superior 35mm camera I still own.
Summary: I've only had this camera for a week. My first pictures came out reddish using the "Auto" mode so I better learn how to set the camera up manually. I had to print out the guide which is 181 pages! Also the movies extension is .MOV. It will only play back pics and video through a PC and not through my HDTV or bluray player. I wonder if most of these newer cameras are the same which makes me upset!
Summary: I'm not a photographer, so I can't comment much on quality, but this camera just feels frustratingly sluggish. It is slow to turn on & be ready to shoot, slow to focus & slow between shots, especially if you're using the flash, then it's REALLY slow, don't plan to take more than one shot every 10 seconds...
Summary: It's a decent design. Made in China. VERY light. The battery door is a bit tricky, and could be easily broken. Easy to operate, but the buttons and connectors are a bit small for a senior to operate. No memory card included.
Summary: I'm not a photographer, but I am a fairly detail-oriented individual. I bought this camera because I figured more mega pixels meant better clarity, detail and more of an ability to zoom in on an image and crop clearer portions out of it. That was apparently a very erroneous assumption. This camera feels cheap overall (made in China) and, when compared to identical images taken with an older 3.2 mega pixel Canon A510, this camera falls way short.
Summary: I purchased this camera as a second handy camera in addition to an SLR. It scores well in terms of picture and video quality, ease of use and size, however, zoom is quite limited and the shutter lag is quite frustrating.. The moment of capture is long gone when the camera finally decides to shoot..
Summary: Like nearly every camera in the compact point and shoot category, this camera suffers from too many pixels on a tiny sensor. Even in full sunlight, at the lowest ISO settings, there is noticeable pixel cross talk / ISO noise in the images, and colors are relatively flat. Combine that with jpeg compression, and fine textures become an unrecognizable jumble of pixels, and clean edges just don't exist.
Summary: I want/need the following: replaceable battery... it must be able to keep the camera going when out and about removable memory... it must be able to keep on shooting when the memory fills up view finder... using the LCD display does not cut it in many environments This camera is one of the very few that still has the above features, and it is the Only One that I found that is pocket size and at a reasonable price.
Summary: Previous camera was a Canon Power Shot A100IS. This was a real nice camera until the electronics went bad. I would have bought the same again but the newest comparable model was the A1200 with out the IS or image stabilization. This is OK for the money. The pictures are good. The body seems light and cheap as if it is made from plastic. The controls are located in a different orientation from the A1000IS so we are constantly pressing or moving the wrong controls.
Summary: My last camera was a Canon A610. Great camera but I wanted something a little newer and a little smaller. I just want a basic camera that wasn't too expensive that takes good pictures. Pros: Battery - the camera uses AA batteries. This was something I really wanted in a camera. I can't tell you how many times I grabbed my old camera just to find out it was dead. Threw in 4 AA and was up and running again.
