  • Summary: Tiny screen by todays standards. Interesting camera though. I have always owned Canon cameras because the way they are set up seems to make logical sense. These can be purchased on Ebay cheap cheap, like under $30 and they are fun to goof around with.

And Oldie but Goodie

  • Summary: I wanted a camera smaller than, but just as capable as, my full-size DSLR. I wanted a camera with a remote and I wanted a camera with a composite video AV output. The G5 has it all and then some. The remote. Most point and shoot cameras do not have a remote shutter release. The G5 uses a remote that not only fires the shutter but operates the zoom and moves the focus point of the camera. In setting up the camera you can have the remote engage a 2 or 10 second delay ..

Don't bother, get a newer model.

  • Summary: Eww, I sometimes forget the advancements that have been made to cameras in the past 10 years. I bought this for my 3 year old daughter (Yes, she understands how to use Auto mode) The shutter is too slow even with the flash on, Her nor I can get a clear shot. The camera was used so maybe its broken. I suggest going with a G10 or higher if you really want an advanced Point and shoot over a DSLR. Though, just get a T1i or Higher. Cheap enough, much better.

For me, it was a true bargain!

  • Summary: I have bought this camera because it is plenty of resources, even it is 10 years old. I can choose if I shoot photos totally automatic, or some kind of scenes (paisage or portrait), velocity priority, aperture priority, or totally manual. The sensor is a bit greater than the basic point-and-shoot cameras. The camera is a bit greater than the basic point-and-shoot cameras, but it is far lesser than a DSLR camera.

  • Summary: Canon as people know is good at capturing bright and vibrant colors. I have taken so many pictures with this one. It is absolutely great camera for beginners. I still have the camera with me even after 7 years.

  • Summary: This is easy to use in the automatic mode . Auto focus works great. The manual settings anr wonderful also. Read the owners manual to get the full benifits of the camera. This camera can produce professional level photographs when use right.

  • Summary: This purchase was requested by a friend living overseas. I ordered it for him and had it delivered to my house, because I wanted to prepare it for a long journey and make sure that will not get damaged on the way. The package came well wrapped, so I didn't really needed to put any additional cushions into it.

Great Camera

  • Summary: Great little camera that takes very good pictures. Though only 5 MP it is still a super value for the money. My original G5 stopped working due to blown internal fuses. So it was cheaper to buy a used one than send it in to get fixed.....worth the money.

Very good for begginer photgraphers!

  • Summary: Great camera for low cost. 1. All the settings as in DSLR available 2. Good sensor (5Mp=lower noise then new cameras) 3. Raw format available for photoshop masters 4. Good lens 5. JPEG photos also very good to those who want to shot and print. 6. Good argonomics. The new analog of the camera (even with restrictions) costs 300$+.
