A nice camera for the money

russelljudge, ReviewView
22 January 2008
  • Conclusion: Its a nice camera but its a bit much. It was easy to use and understand everything. It has auto flash with red-eye reduction which is nice to have. It was dropped a time or two and only got a few scratches but still worked.
  • Pros: Size of screen and color
  • Cons: Cost to much

Good camera, significant limitations, next likely significantly better

Kevin K. Fosler, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a rewrite of a previous review, hoping to be more concise. Pros: - Feels good, looks good, great ergonomics. Usually I de-emphasize this, but this is an exception. - The pictures turn out great.

A fair digital camera

  • Summary: Quite a good zoom on this. But the images are quite noisy, as seems to be true still with more recent Canon bridge cameras.

Much has been said...

  • Summary: Much has been said about Canon's Powershot S3 IS all of it justified.. Well in my opinion is not half as good as they say! I have many cameras at half the price and a lot better in almost all departments.

  • Summary: Hmmm - in hindsight i wish i had just gone for a full blown starter DSLR. That was my mistake. Tbh this is a good little camera that takes nice snaps and has a reasonable amount of options to keep most pick-up and shoot people happy.

not the best

Burak, Amazon
11 February 2008
  • Summary: there are some web sites that compare photos taken with different cameras in detail. compare a photo taken by this camera at ISO80, with a photo taken by Fujifilm Finepix s6500fd at ISO400. Supposedly, an ISO400 photo should have much more noise. Then compare an IS100 photo taken by Fujifilm.

Problems with digital noise

SharonUK, Amazon
24 July 2006
  • Summary: This camera can take razor sharp superb images, proving your ISO setting is either 80 or 100. Use anything higher than that and you will get digital noise (grainy images). For its class, getting digital noise at ISO settings above 200 is expected, but getting significant digital noise at 200 is...
