Summary: I bought this because I needed a cheap camera that could be hacked (google CHDK--it's a software kit that gives you a lot more control over your Canon camera). This, combined with a Gorillapod tripod and a 16 GB SD card, let me take time-lapse images with manual control over focus, ISO, and shutter...
Summary: I bought this camera from a recommendation on the DIY book scanner ([...]) forums. Overall, I am pleased with the camera given its price. The battery life if pretty terrible, I get about 70 pictures worth with it, which was about 2 days during my summer vacation. The batteries got expensive fast!
Summary: I got the camera to take pictures of my house. I also got the memory card. Instead of 47 pictures, I can take 2000. For a little camera, it made great pictures. I couldn't tell that they were great until I loaded them onto the computer. Then the colors were fantastic.
Summary: Just got this camera and it has been great. Good pics and movies, easy to figure out, very nice. Not too thin, but for the price, it is not a problem. For the money, it is perfect for what I need! I use it during my work almost every day. So far, so good!
