Summary: I ended up returning the camera due to problems with the camera, but here are the comments I had after my short time with it: Pro: +Decent features considering the price +Compact size, very similar to the Canon ELPH series +Good picture quality.
Conclusion: I owned this camera for one week and returned it because it was so difficult to see through the viewfinder outdoors. I then bought a Canon A1400 because it has an optical viewfinder but haven't used it yet.
Conclusion: Disappointed that there was no manual, why do I want to search and download it. Shouldn't this basic need to understand a camera come with it?? No adaptor, but there is a portal on the camera for one, so again , an extra charge. Very disappointed that the very basics aren't included.
Pros: small easy to tuck in a purse
Cons: bare bones, no manual, no ac adaptor, can be slow
Conclusion: I guess the worst thing is it didn't come with a users manual, it has to be downloaded, and their site doesn't work. So I'm stuck with a camera that doesn't focus where I want it to focus, I get these green squares that bracket everything but the item I want to focus on.
Pros: fits in your shirt pocket
Cons: 16 mega pixels create huge email attachments
Conclusion: I previously owned a Canon A560 and purchased the A2500 because I thought it might have new features. Takes a lousy picture. Very dark even when using the flash. So dark I can barely make out the subject in the picture. Worse mistake I ever made.
Cons: Dim LCD, Poor image quality, Poor Low-Light Performance
Summary: Upon receiving my camera, I was reading the User Guide. I read that it was supposed to come with a Power Cord. The Power Cord was NOT in with the camera and other accessories. I contacted Amazon about this, they sent me another one. Same thing happened. NOT HAPPY!!
Summary: I have not yet gotten a chance to fully use this camera since either the battery or the charger shuts down (after 1 week) and the battery is not charging. I don't know whether I have to get a new battery or a new charger. Very frustrating.
