Summary: I must admit I am used to my SLR But was hoping for a little better quality photos then I have gotten from this camera. Even with the flash, if you are indoors or low light you will get a red eye every time.
Summary: Most of the features of this camera are great, but there are two that bother me compared to the last Canon digital camera I had. On this one, you cannot force it to use a flash. It's either auto flash or no flash. The other thing is when you try to take videos, you have to make sure the camera is in focus before you press the record button otherwise the start of your video may be really fuzzy. I feel like the auto focus feature is too slow.
Summary: The camera comes with the rechargeable battery completely discharged and no memory card. Warning if like me you mean this as a birthday gift for someone. Take out the battery and charge it and buy a memory card before you wrap the gift. Otherwise everyone is disappointed.
Summary: I was so in a hurry in ordering this one, I did not realize it did not include any sd card, so i have to buy it. For the price, it's ok. It's a little bit heavier compared to my sony cybershot.
Summary: This camera is easy to use..pictures and video. Inexpensive and good zoom too. One of the problems with the camera is the lapse time from when you click and when the picture is actually captured. We used the camera to take a picture of our 2 year old grandson. He would pose for a few seconds and then begin to move. As a result, you have to take many pictures before you get a good one! The camera also shuts down quickly which makes getting the picture quite difficult.
Summary: It was a good price to replace our digital camera. Two things I don't like - 1. You can't force it to flash so indoor pictures can come out grainy. You have the option for no flash or auto flash. 2. It seems like there is a lag in when you press the button to take the picture and when it acutally takes (I would say about a second). With young kids this is a big deal as you miss the picture with eyes open and smiles.
Summary: Not very well made, battery compartment cover was difficult to line up. I just fabricated a new cover. No instructions but I have had other digital cameras and was able to figure this out OK. Cannon is no longer a brand name, just a label for subcontracted junk from China. Would I recommend this camera? Sure, with the caveat of don't expect much for under $100.
