One Step Forward, Two Steps Back: CANon ?

Thorbjore, epinions.com
7 October 2008
  • Summary: The S3 was exquisite. This is ... NOT. For all its mumbo jumbo and high tech additions, they have sacrificed quality.
  • Pros: Low ISO photos are incomparable! Feels right in my hand, great size/weight.
  • Cons: NOISY low light photos. Poor stamina. Battery with memory card. Pooped on me.

  • Pros: I decided to return it after the first day. I was so looking forward to this camera! I didn't want to believe the mixed reviews I had read.
  • Cons: Noisy Noisy Noisy at 80 iso - unacceptable! Lens causes shadow in macro or supermacro mode. In wide angle - could see lens hood in corners. Not sharp!

  • Pros: 10x optical zoom, image stabilization
  • Cons: Pathetic LCD for camera in this price range
