Summary: I was on a business trip to do a final walk-through of a large installation and forgot my camera ( Nikon Coolpix 5900 5MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom , 5.1MP) so I ran out to CompUSA and got this one for $89.99 and was excited about it. I expected it to be better than my Nikon as this one is 3.5 years newer, has better resolution and a bigger screen. It's just okay, IMHO, hence the 3-stars. I'd probably give it a 3.5 star rating if I could.
Summary: This is a good camera for the price. It is simple to use and takes clear, crisp pictures. Also, the battery life is good. And the price makes it affordable to take good pictures. Just keep in mind, that this camera works well if your subject is stationary. It is not for action shots. I have tried to take pictures of my kids playing in the yard and pictures usually come out blurry. Also, there is a bit of a lag time for the picture to be taken.
Summary: I PURCHASED THIS CAMERA FOR MY VACATION IN JULY AND I HAVE REALLY LIKED IT FOR THE MOST PART. MY ONLY REAL COMPLAINT IS THAT THE BATTERY & SD CARD COMPARTMENT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO OPEN. I AM 66-YRS OLD AND MY FINGERS DON'T WORK SO WELL TO OPEN THIS AREA UP. OTHERWISE I REALLY DON'T SEE ANY OTHER REASON TO COMPLAIN.
Summary: The picture quality is good but the lag time between pushing the button especially with the flash making a bright light while it gets ready for the shot destroys any spontaneous shots especially of my animals or child. It is easy to use and I did not have to do a lot of reading to get it working for me. My disappointment lies only in the inability to take spontaneous photos and maybe that is just the quality of a digital camera.
Summary: this camera eats batteries, i found the controls/settings a bit confusing and i'm reasonablied experianced with cameras,it's fairly bulky for a compact camera.it takes fairly good pics,but theres better cameras out there around the same money.
Summary: Ja, die Canon macht qualitativ anständige Fotos. Die Bedienung ist einfach und viel Spaß mach der SuperMacro-Modus. Allerdings löst die Kamera viel zu langsam aus. Das Motiv ist lange weg, bevor die Kamera sich rührt. Das macht sie als Kamera für schnelle Partyfotos eher ungeeignet. Außerdem frisst sie Batterien. Ich glaube auch, dass das mit dem Batterienfraß eine kleine Altersschwäche der Kamera ist. Ich habe sie mittlerweile 5 Jahre und fotografiere oft damit.
