Summary: I like the camera because of it convenient size, we use this camera for work situations. It has to function in all sorts of conditions many which are adverse its one handed operation makes it invaluable. The only adverse is that the lens function starts to bind and soon quits working. while we do not abuse the camera we take thousands of pictures per month. We like this product for it's size, it's function(time/date stamp) and the price.
Summary: My wife's film camera finally expired, which was good because I believe we might otherwise have had to send film to Bangladesh to be developed. She is a technophobe and this new camera was an adventuresome step. I did a Google search on "simple digital cameras" and several showed up. The Canon was a tradeoff between features and price. It is indeed simple. Set on automatic, it seems to handle most situations.
Conclusion: This camera is just a basic camera you can't expect much for the price. Settings are basic. As far as being able to adjust the size of the photo, use a picture software program if you need to change the size. It is always best to take the best picture possible and then resize afterwards. That way one can make large prints if you get a great shot. Now down loading pictures with any camera it is always faster to pull the card and download directly to your computer.
Pros: size, price, time to boot up, picture quality
Works well, canon repair is fast, allergic to moisture

Summary: This is probably the 4th of this Canon series we've owned, as we seem to need an upgrade every other year (pick-pockets in Buenos Aires, etc). The camera is affordable, easy to use, yet versatile (a good blend for two people with different skills). I will say that our visits to ocean-side have shown the camera to be a bit sensitive to water (ocean spray and it lost power) and sand (one tiny grain froze the lens motor).
Summary: I really like this camera. The camera itself is nice and easy to use. Now I am limited in my opinion because I haven't tried to download the pics onto my laptop yet so idk if the pics are as clear on the computer as they are on the camera. But the camera has a fast response and has a pretty cool look for such a compact canera!
