Summary: I have not been able to program the camara to take pictures. It is not a point and shoot. I would not buy this again if I had a choice. I bought this product to take pictures of the items I sell on ebay. all I get is a big blur for a picture. I have had it for a whil, but have been so busy , just now had a chance to try using it.
Pros: I would have to say that the 8meg pics are stunning. But compared with the G series, you probably couldn't tell the difference if you develop 11X17 or less. That's about it.
Cons: The autofocus is very frustrating. Takes a long time to adjust and by then, you've lost the moment. It's not a camera for someone wanting candids. If you compose your shots, then you'll be fine. You'll miss most of the "quick, get the camera" shots though
"Damn it, 1st time use it, can not pull out USB cable from back of the Pro1"
1 September 2004
Pros: Brought it today and just start to test shoort for half a day.
Cons: Damn it, connect to my PC and download pics OK then found it shocking, can not pull out the USB cable from back of the camera, the mini USB port and the cable connector catched together and locked deadly, tomorrow need to talk to Canon. Can't believe it.
Excerpt: Canon's Powershot Pro1 is the one and only digital camera i bought that i won't regret for the rest of my life. The colours and the images it gave, was perfect even thou i'm not a proffesional photographer. It made me proud of myself everytime i show everyone the pictures i shot with it...
Summary: I bought a Canon powershot pro1 in January 05 from amazon and have taken about a thousand excellent quality pictures. I bought it because I wanted a professional camera that was small enough to carry around without taking up too much space. Fot that its brilliant. Now for the bad part. Recently the camera's battery started to loose its charge very quickly and then the view finder and screen stopped woking but it would still take pictures.
Summary: La compré al poco de que saliera al mercado. Además de todas las quejas que se han escrito como la del viñeteado, las sombras tan increíbles que provoca el objetivo cuando salta el flash..., aquí añadiré una que se menciona muy poco, como es la velocidad de disparo. De las fotos con movimiento o de rostros que no sean estáticos, olvídate. Aprietas el botón para retratar a un niño, y cuando sale la imagen te lo encuentras fumando un puro de lo que ha crecido.
