Exactly what it is - a basic point a shoot

  • Summary: How good are the results from this camera? Before you can answer that, you have to ask what it is that you want out of a pocket camera. Is it as convenient as a phone camera? No - but then a phone camera won't get better results or be as versatile as this.

  • Summary: I wouldn't recommend it to anyone but it serves the purpose. The pictures aren't always clear no matter how focused the camera is.

SLOW, SLOW, SLOW

  • Summary: Yes, it takes great pictures if kids are not moving around, even slightly. It takes great pictures if your outside or it's not to dark in the AUTO setting. It is EASY to use. If this is a gift for a kid who is btwn 7-18 years old, then it is okay for the money ($166).

basic little camera

  • 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.

Happy at First ... Now Disappointed!

  • Summary: I have owned this camera for less than a year. I loved it for the first six months, then it started having issues. About a month ago, it started shutting itself off and stating there was an E32. Turns out I have to return the camera to the company for repair.

  • Summary: I really wanted to love this camera as much as the 5-star reviewers. In fact, it was the high praise that made me buy it. However, it suffers from the typical problems most cameras in this price range do --slow shutter/write to disk speed and mediocre low light shooting.

Ok camera, nothing special

  • Summary: I suppose that this is what you get for this amount of money... If you are not interested in high quality images or good/clear night photos, then I guess it is just fine.

  • Summary: Could do with being thiner in order to get this in your pocket when you go out. When you take a picture the image is fuzzy, picture turns out okay but is off putting.

They don't build them like they used to....

  • Summary: I'm a long-term Canon PowerShot user and this was bought to replace one that died after heavy use. Despite being better in all ways on paper, I'm really not pleased with this camera. It is very poor indoors and with the flash, causing very blurry photos in these conditions.

Canon Powershot A3100 IS

  • Summary: Not as good as I expected. It has replaced a Canon IXUS 65 and I have to say that the build quality does not feel as good and the image qulaity on the LCD screen and when viewed on the computer is not as good as the IXUS. I am disappointed but can live with it.
