Excerpt: This is a very good general purpose camera for travel. it is like a combination of a rebel with some L lens. Image is extremely sharp. Color is very accurate. The dials and buttons are very professional like, very easy to access. Very strong IS, very safe to use at low light or low shutter speed.
Excerpt: Cut my teeth years ago with F1 mech., A1, F1AE, T90, etc. Remember the weight of a f1ae with motor drive, 12 count them 12 aa batteries. Carried them all over the world. Everyone remember the 50+ lbs camera bag?
Excerpt: There is little to complain about when it comes to the Canon Elph 320 HS. The wide angle lens (compared to others) is excellent. The low light lens, all touch screen enables the large 3.2 inch LCD screen.
Summary: Remember the Kodak Pocket Instamatic 20 camera? That was my first camera. Or the wondrous Polaroid SX70! I loved that camera. When digital came around, with the infinite pre and post processing available along with being able to take multiple test pictures without the cost of film..
Summary: The title says it all: this is the best camera I have every owned and I would recommend it to anyone who wants superb pictures and who is willing to take the time (and make the effort) to learn how to use it.
Pros: Superb picture quality under almost all conceivable conditions., Fast and easy changing of settings., Wonderful, extremely useful, articulating LCD screen (and I wouldn't want to buy a camera without one)., Lightweight for its size and capabilities.
Cons: Macro use requires auxiliary lens., Snap-on lens cap., No filter threads engraved in lens housing (requires filter adapter)., Auto focus not as quick as on some models (but adequate under most conditions)., You must print the owner's manual (necessary!)
Summary: I purchased this camera for a month-long trip to France, specifically Normandy and then the French canals, where I did not want to lug my Nikon gear. I researched all the options and available choices, including Leica, but decided the larger format sensor of the G1X (and its image quality) was worth...
Excerpt: This is an excellent point and shoot camera. If you don't want the bulk, but want some of the functions and advantages of a more expensive camera, this one is for you. The features are top-notch. The video is solid; I have not noticed problems generally associated with videos from non-camcorders.
Summary: Ah, the much-maligned Canon PowerShot G1 X! If you're already a PowerShot G series user and understand this line of cameras, you probably suspect the issues that you read about are moot points. And for most photographers, you would be right.
Excerpt: Bought this camera used - at an absolutely rock-bottom, dirt-cheap price - directly from an unhappy owner who apparently thought he was getting dSLR image quality and dSLR speed. Well, he was 1/2 right. He shot less than 100 images ... and dumped it.
