Great printer, but too big, heavy, and expensive to maintain for an amateur like me
14 August 2012
Summary: I wanted to love this. Really, I did. I love taking pictures with my Canon T2i DSLR, so I'm more than a novice. I wouldn't call myself a pro, though, just someone who likes to hone her photography skills. I like instant gratification (who doesn't?), so I thought printing shots at home would be for me. I just don't think it is, at least not with this beast of a printer.
Summary: For like 2-300 more $ you can get the EOS Digital Rebel, This is also 8 mp- NO LENSES ONLY 1 SUPER LENSE This camera does not allow you to attach any lenses to increase quality or view! It has one built in lense that does enough though, if you are not going pro then this lense should do the trick, it does macro shots fine for me, and it does long distance shots decently.
Summary: The reviews for this camera have generally been favorable with a few complaints here and there. I struggled with the decision to purchase this camera as a backup to my 20D I use for weddings, and for use as a nice point and shoot for home use. We are upgrading from an Elan7, a Rebel 2000, and a Sony DSC-S75 digital. My wife and I both are EXTREMELY dissappointed in how this camera functions.
Summary: I recently bought the Pro1 with the idea of using it as an improvement over my good and reliable Powershot G2 for macro photography of (very small) wild flowers. The main problem with the G2 is that the digital zoom gives excellent magnification but causes much noise, making images grainy. In this regard the Pro 1 seemed perfect because it boasts much larger macro capabilities than the G2.
Summary: Canon make great cameras and their optics are second to none, but when are they going to make a camera that can focus quickly? This is my third digital Canon and I won't but another. It can take up to a second and a half to focus on the subject and it starts at macro and moves out to the focus area, which can make it take longer. The purpose of a still camera is to capture a moment in time, not several seconds after the moment.
