Excerpt: I previously owned an older model of the Casio Exilim and used it so much (and dropped it a few times) that when I needed to replace it, I bought the newer model of the same camera, because I liked it so much. The newer model is a little thicker than the previous but worth it because it is way better quality. I highly recommend it.
Excerpt: I want to be able to take clear shots without a lot of fuss. This camera does just that. I don't have the patience to fuss with settings and light and aperture opening. I want all that done for me and this model is perfect for a point and shoot person like me. I appreciate that there is a setting for taking pictures at night, for movies and also for panoramic shots.
Excerpt: My husband bought this camera for me for a cruise we were going on and I loved using it! It was so easy to use and, even though I had to read the whole manual to understand its million settings, it was easy to get around once I did. It is light and has an amazing clarity with the pictures that come out. I can easily and quickly delete any pictures that I don't like (blurs, eye blinks, etc) and switch between panorama and short movies with one turn.
Excerpt: I love this camera!! The ONLY thing I do not like about it is that you have to have it in post card mode to have the date stamp on your photos!! Other then that it takes great quality pictures and video!! It takes 4 AA batteries and I use the energizer rechargeables and they last FOREVER in it!! And I use my camera almost daily with my new baby!! I really don't have anything bad to say about it other then the date stamp part!! Great product!!
Excerpt: I had outgrown my Canon Powershot A520. It was a a great little point-and-shoot camera, but my needs had outgrown the camera. And my particular camera had been used so much over its lifespan that the quality of the camera had decreased; The Canon Powershot A640 is an excellent camera. Canons "run in my family." I was looking around at this and that, and I came across the 10-megapixel A640 and that was it. It was "the one." The durability of the camera is amazing.
Summary: Super clear pics. Can enlarge without a slight loss in quality. Lot to learn about it. Does not eat batterys. not to big. will take some time to figure out all the options but allows the novice to shoot right away.
Excerpt: This camera is nice and I am sure that it does more than what I use it for! I know that it will also do video, but we simply use the iPad for that. I love that I can use the cord or the card to upload photos to my computer. It is quick to take the photo, so fuzzy photos are a thing of the past! Great photos!
