Great camera for the price

Summary: I bought this camera to take on vacation for my 8 yr old grandson to use. For the price this is an excellent camera for a novice. It is very lightweight, which for me is a con since I use a DSLR and the heavier camera can be held steadier.It is simple to use, and takes good pictures in good light.
Summary: This must be near the end of the line in terms of this design model and it's upgrades and I am sorry I did not know it sooner. The Canon Powershot A3000IS is a little adjust-a-dial, four way toggle button camera that looks remarkably like an old Vivitar which came free with a printer 7 years ago,...
Summary: Unfortunately I no longer have my Panasonic DMC-FH1 which was a great camera for a low price. I decided to replace it with this Canon A3000IS camera instead. What a mistake! I'm still on the fence about keeping this camera. Although the Canon A3000 does have its redeeming qualities.
Excerpt: The dial mode function is the most handsome criteria that catches my attention. It is a very straight forward camera that defines what is a point and snap camera is all about. The AF is acceptably fast enough for a p&s.
Excerpt: The camera seems a bit cheap compared to cameras with the same price. But it takes good pictures, both indoor and outdoor. When ISO is low(100) they are quite sharp, with ISO of 400 or bigger they start to be blury.
Summary: Got the camera one week ago and already had one problem. After taking about 200 pics (for work indoors), the camera stopped working. The screen went white and could not take any more pics. Took out the battery and hoped this would reset the camera but nothing.
Excerpt: I have started in recent months to take an interest in photography and in looking for a decent camera that could take acceptable pictures whilst not being too heavy and bulky and at a price that I could afford, I stumbled across this nifty little camera.
Pros: Fairly good results every time, help button is a bonus !
Cons: Could probably do better but at a much steeper price !
Excerpt: Digital cameras don't last forever. Having previously owned Canon digital cameras in the past I decided to stick with the brand as I trust their quality, both in the product itself and the resulting imagery.
Pros: Stylish, compact and lightweight, photography made simple .
Cons: Doesn't have a vast array of options and settings to fiddle with .
Excerpt: Цена конечно радует, но качество не очень-то. Объем (формат) фотографии лучше пожалуй не занижать, попробовал сделать 6 Мп, ничего хорошего не вышло. А вот цифровой зум лучше сразу отключить, ну это и так понятно;) В общем, как резюме: соотношение цена/качество на 4 балла, подойдет как фотоаппарат...
Pros: Фотоаппарат выбирался исходя из выделенных на его покупку денег, так что сильная сторона - цена. Также, массогабарит, вполне подойдет для повседневного ношения в кармане. Видео нормального качества за такую цену, картинка не плывет, на разрешении монитора 1280х800 вполне можно смотреть. Простота ...
Cons: Довольно сильно шумит почти на всех исо. Видео много весит. Дешевый пластик, дисплей не заглублен - сразу пленка нужна. Крышка АКБ довольно хлипкая, того и гляди, сломается.
