Simply amazed by this tiny camera

Summary: I am used to larger bridge and DSLR cameras providing superb images for day-to-day shooting. I needed a compact camera though so I bought the Canon 2100is. This one beats all of the bridge cameras I've used in the past from many major brand names. It takes excellent shots in daylight and very good shots with flash on during darker hours. Colors do not appear washed out at all in the pictures. Picture quality is crisp yet not too digitally sharpened or saturated.
Summary: I bought this camera because my Sony had defective electronics that weren't worth fixing. I'm very glad I bought this camera. It was reasonably priced and had standard AA Nickel metal hydrate batteries, instead of a special propriatery battery and memory card, like the Sony. I was very interested in the image stabilization feature, as I can no longer hand-hold a camera steady enough to prevent blurring.
Summary: For an entry level camera, 12MP and 6X zoom can't be beat. Add the 3 inch LCD and you've got one great camera. One easilly overlooked attribute is the fact that this cam takes 2 AA batteries and appears stingy with power usage, given the above features. We had an older model that chewed through 4 AAs like candy. Great camera... on the higher end of entry-level but worth the price.
Summary: Excellent product. Has a solid feel to it... much more so than previous Canon point-and-shoot digital cameras we have owned. Has more features than we will ever use. Picture quality is awesome!
Summary: I researched cameras for weeks and read a large number of reviews before buying this one. I was torn between it, a Lumix, and a wide angle Cannon that had 12x zoom. I am so glad I chose this one. I just used it on a trip the MI UP and took pictures of the kids, scenery, Lake Superior under sun and fog, sunsets, the full moon, foliage, you name it.
Summary: I have a Canon Rebel and love it, but because of it's size I hardly never had it with me when I was out and about. I needed something smaller with the same power and same controls. My picture clarity is wonderful. The dial on top lets me switch from portrait to landscape quick and easy. The only thing I was worried about when I purchased it was the view screen did not swivel shut to protect the screen.
Summary: great camera, photos, and video are awesome, but its a tad heavy. not really a big deal though. I am only wondering by the price keeps going up on amazon? I bought this for $208 on july 2, 2009, and now its almost 280. just wondering. but back to the camera, def a great buy!
Summary: I researched many different cameras before making my purchase. With everything that I looked at, it seemed to all come back to Canon products. Then I had difficulty trying to decide which camera to buy. I read many reviews and finally decided on the A2100IS. I have had this camera now for about a month. I have used it for taking pictures of the kids at soccer games to beach pictures while on vacation. I also took some pictures of fireworks at night.
Summary: Pros: AA batteries, image stabilization is fantastic, great zoom, great pics. Cons: I miss having the small optical viewfinder that was on prior versions. Would have sacrificed the LCD size for that.
