Excerpt: When my wife first got her Canon Powershot camera, I couldn't really see past the price tag. I'd never bought a digital camera before and I was a bit taken aback, as would be expected from a guy who's used to buying disposables. However, this thing not only takes fantastic pictures, but it's resilient as any piece of electronics I've ever encountered. It's been dropped from just about every height up to about 8 feet and yielded not much beyond a small splinter crack...
Excerpt: My husband (a photographer) picked this camera out for me. I wanted something with not too much of a learning curve, small (read: easy to hide from my toddlers), inexpensive, and of good quality. I have no photography background so I am finding the flash a little difficult to work, especially. I don't really know about the settings, but a nice little reading of the manual should help with that.
Excerpt: I bought the Canon Powershot A3000 IS digital camera so I could have a nice small compact camera. I own a large Canon Powershot and needed something I could easily slip in my purse or pocket...I couldn't do that with my last bulky camera! I loved my other Canon so much it was a no brainer to go with another Canon this time. I love how small, thin, sleek this camera is.
Excerpt: Cannon has always been a reliable camera brand. I recently bought this camera for my parents (I have the older version from 2 years ago). It is very function-able and easy to use. Buttons are large enough to decipher and simple. This version is actually bigger than mine and a little less ascetically pleasing, in my opinion, but if you don't care about the exterior, it is a great working camera! A bit bulky, but then again it is hard to lose.
