Summary: A super easy camera. This is my second camera of the S5. I replaced a earlier model which, after 5 years in the field had many small problems. This purchase included the original box, all booklets still sealed and every item that was originally included by the first owner. The camera also cam with an extra strap and a beautiful leather case. I have always been happy with all the still and video cameras that I have owned from Canon. A super buy.
Summary: The Canon PowerShot S5 has a combination of features that make it the perfect camera for engineer that has to photograph places that you don't want to put your head in. This is indispensable when you need shots within vessels and process conveyors, etc. You can take the articulated back viewer and rotate to allow you to see the subject while you hold the camera at arms length. This feature is very hard to find in any camera.
Summary: This camera has as much optical zoom as is usable for handheld shooting, and the 8PM resolution is plenty to allow cropping and printing large images. It was the first of the Canon long zoom cameras to include the flash hot shoe, necessary for distant indoor shots. This feature has been taken from newer models, even while they extend the zoom range, Without being too bulky or heavy, this model has the feel of a solid camera.
Amazing if you want to take professional pictures.

Summary: The pictures come out looking like your a pro every time. Its easy to operate and very user friendly. It fits into your hand perfectly so not worries of dropping it. The only thing I wish they had included is a rechargeable battery pack or rechargeable batteries and a charger, I mean for the price you pay I don't think it would bankrupt the company to include the one thing to make this camera the best.
Excerpt: Digital camera canon S5 IS This is a wonderful camera. It is more sofisticated than its older version. It has better image stabilization and gives better quality pictures. Although you still need steady hands. The clarity of pictures are amazing. It is worth the price. May be I am being picky but one drawback is that the lens cap is very loose and may fall often and makes this irritating sound of birds chirping when you turn it on.
Excerpt: Cannon Power Shot is user friendly and a great aquisition to those who want to point and shoot. It has tons of features and although it might take the green a while to get used to them all, it is well worth the effort. I take my camera everywhere, so i never miss the chanve of a great shot. I highly recommend this camera.
Excerpt: Great camera without having to carry around a big bag with SLR. I have 2 kids in sports and the camera does a wonderful job. Some action shots are blurry but many are clear. I don't care for the burst mode as it was pixely. Overall excellent camera for the money. Reviewer received a sample of this product.
Excerpt: The Canon PowerShot S5 is a power product from Canon which is both affordable and easy to use. Its far superior than its other competitiors. The 10x optical zoom will ensure that you dont miss even the finest of any details. The menu is nicely organized. The icons present on the button are self explianatory. Photo quality is also very good but you may need to adjust the settings like ISO mode, shutte speed etc a bit to get the optimal click.
