Great camera, but some cons.

Summary: I bought this camera at the end of August. With the camera I also bought a 128MB compact flash card, an extra battery, and a carrying case. I also recently bought Viking's IntelliFlash Memory Reader. The camera: Amazing size; it is literally about the size of a deck and a half of cards. It fits into my pants pocket or my chest pocket without a problem. Great pictures, especially in daylight.
Summary: I, as many others, have waited for many years for the convergence of price, features, size and ease of use to hit that happy center point. Well wait no more! This Camera is just plain FUN. I have had it for 5 months and barely a day has gone by that I haven't used it. It really changes the way you approach photography since you can edit on the fly, the instant feedback helps you shoot till you get it right! Trial and error - the best way.
Summary: I bought my camera based on recommendations from my other friends who own it. I am very pleased with my purchase. It's best to list the pros and cons of this camera: Pros: - smallest 2 megapixel camera availble. - light & easy to carry, fits into your shirt/jacket pocket. - "zoom" ability when previewing pictures - 2x zoom moves quickly - very good daylight pictures - very fast downloading of images to PC/Mac via USB cable - provided software works for Windows or Mac -...
Great camera! Perfect for serious but not professional user

Summary: I bought this camera after looking around for a digital for quite sometime. I looked at so many cameras out there, but I decided on a few things I was looking for. First, I wanted at least 2 megapixels for high quality photos. And this camera delivers! I love the picture quality. Second, I wanted something from a brand known to be high quality. I have been happy with everything I have ever bought from Canon and I hear relatively few complaints about their products.
Summary: I have used many digital cameras. This IS the best camera you can have for digital images if you want to: - Take quick pictures with excelent resolution - Hate to wait between shots - Download it fast to your computer - Have a great and easy to use bundled software - Travel with it without knowing you have it in your pocket I use digital cameras for taking great pictures and share it in web pages, or sending emails... This camera is perfect and not complicated to use.
Summary: This is a great camera. I wanted a digital camera to take the place of my point and shoot, and not necessarily my SLR. The Digital ELPH fits that role admirably. It's size is the major plus for me. I take it everywhere with me now and since it's digital, I don't have to worry about wasting film. I just carry it in my front pocket whenever I'm walking around.
Summary: This is a great point and shoot camera. I travel to Mexico a lot and the S100 is just so easy to keep in my little waist pack that reaching for it is second nature. No opportunity gets by me to record where I am or what I see. With the addition of a Viking 64MB flash card, I can capture over 80 shots without even thinking twice about capacity. Indoors, the built in flash is adequate under 10 feet but can overexpose a little close up.
Fantastic little camera - but needs a couple of accessories

Summary: This is the camera that I've been waiting 18 months for - decent price, small but well built, high resolution and great quality. After a week of ownership, overall I'm delighted with the product. However, it was poor of Canon not to include a pouch for the camera - no more than a $1 cost to them but essential in protecting the camera from an occasional knock, IMO.
Summary: I purchased this camera recently to replace my Sony Mavica digital camera and to use alongside my Canon EOS 300 SLR camera. My initial concerns that the camera would not be compatible with my Pentium III 800 running Windows Millenium Edition were unfounded. I had downloaded the appropriate driver from the canon.com.au website and installed this, rather than the driver was on the Canon CD that came along with the camera.
Summary: I have owned at least 8 or 10 other cameras thru the years. In the 70's and 80's I used several 35mm SLR's, then got lazy and have had several 35mm point and shoot auto everything cameras. On two occasions I tried out APS format cameras, the latest being the Canon Elph 370Z. The APS format cannot hold a candle to 35mm for overall picture quality, but the size and feel of the Elph made up for some of the lost points. It's failure was in the flash department..
