Canon-PowerShot Digital Camera is an ok camera

Excerpt: We all have cameras and multiple cameras these days. I personally really enjoy having a digital camera where it really saves on having to print eveything out on film paper. That being said, I still want a good picture, something with quailty and easy to use. This Canon-Power Shot camera is I would say very simple and easy to use and I like how it comes in a varitey of colors, but I don't buy a camera for the color on the outside.
Excerpt: I have had my Canon camera for nine months now. My favorite aspect of it is the movie making aspects as I love to videotape, not just take pictures. This week, I used my Canon digital camera to video live music concerts in Austin, TX. You do not have to be tech-savy to use this Canon digital camera. It uploads to my mac easily and the video quality is good. I also enjoy taking pictures with the camera as well.
Excerpt: The canon powershot takes clear pictures with great quality - as long as you're not trying to catch a great, candid shot. As others have noted, it takes great photos and is easy to use and affordable. However, I think that about the majority of digital cameras that I have experienced. I purchased this camera specifically because it states that in continuous shooting mode I should be able to take pictures with a delay between 0.6 and 15s.
Canon PowerShot A3100 IS is okay. I've used better.

Excerpt: It might not help my opinion that I bought it after my Canon DSLR was stolen (and I couldn't afford to replace the DSLR), but I'm not very impressed with my Canon PowerShot A3100 IS. It's okay, and I suppose the quality and capability is in line with the price of the camera, but I'm just not very pleased with this camera.
Excerpt: I received a Canon PowerShot A3100 IS for a birthday gift (which I picked out) in July 2009. I have owned two Canon PowerShots in the past and really liked them. I had read multiple product reviews and was hoping that since I liked PowerShots in the past that I would like this newer model. I take on average 1,000 pictures per month mostly of my 10 month old daughter who hardly ever stops moving.
PowerShot A3100 takes nice pictures, but is flimsy.

Excerpt: My work purchased seven of the Canon PowerShot A3100 cameras several months ago. We are admittedly hard on our equipment. Nonetheless, these cameras are already disintegrating. There are plenty of nice features, of course. They take nice pictures and the rechargeable battery is great. The image stabilization feature works very well. I like that they use a standard mini-USB cable. The battery life is far better than our previous AA battery-hog cameras. The...
Summary: What I like about the camera is that it is pretty much fool proof. It's ideal for people who have no idea how to take pictures because the camera chooses the shooting modes for you. It's easy to carry because it's lightweight and small. I don't like that I can't lower the resolution of the pictures (or at least maybe I haven't found where to do that after extensively searching for it, it's not even in the manual, so I suppose you can't do it at all).
