Summary: Carry this camera in the car for your "grab" camera and you'll be glad you did! Please don't worry about people who complain about the lag time using flash; you shouldn't be using flash anyway, and you'll rarely need to with this small treasure.
Summary: This camera is great except for two things: any annoying vertical pink line that comes into the photo/video if you face into a light, even after the camera adjusts, and having to use AA batteries. For example, I was shooting a scene in a French square at night. It was fully lighted and I was videoing the dancing.
Summary: I'm very happy with the camera - pictures are excellent. Although it's a bit larger and heavier than other compact cameras, I don't really notice the difference - still fits in my back pocket. I'm using the camera with AGL3080 geologger and Geoatagalong for geotagging; makes a great combination.
Summary: I have had Canon cameras for quite a few years now & have been very impressed with them. I usually have had the smaller Powershot cameras, but decided on this one due to the zoom. I have been very impressed with this camera as far as the photos it has taken. I tried out the zoom & was able to get a close shot of a squirrel in a tree that was very clear. The only reason I didn't give this camera an excellent rating is that it doesn't have a view finder.
Summary: I did a lot of research before deciding to buy this camera. I am very pleased with it's performance and think that for the price, you cannot find a better camera. On a recent trip to Colorado, I took about two hundred pictures to test it out. The results were detailed, beautiful pictures and most of the time, I just used the "Auto" setting as I must admit I am a lazy photographer and hate to even read the manual for most electronics.
Summary: I bought this camera for my girlfriend who was always trying to steal mine because she is one of those girls who takes pictures every 5 seconds when she goes out. I wanted to get her something with enough picture quality, that was easy to use and seemed durable in case she dropped it or something. This camera fit the bill, and the price was within my range especially on Amazon.
Summary: I wonder why anyone would buy anything else, GREAT picture quality, easy to use, compact size uses regular AA batteries. The only thing I would like would be a view finder, I really prefer to shoot pictures that way so thats the only reason why I don't give this camera the highest possible score.
Summary: Great little camera. Has many features and I haven't used a lot of them yet because the Automatic Mode is so foolproof and produces such great images that I just point and shoot. I bought the camera to take on a trip to Europe because I didn't want the hassle of a big SLR. I just thread it onto my belt and forget it's there until time to shoot a pic. I priced this camera at Walmart's online store and it was cheaper at Amazon.
