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: One of the best cameras out there that isn't dslr in my opinion. Plenty of editing options with the color swap and color accent, along with manual mode to get just the right shot. Great 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.
Summary: Great camera and takes excellent photos. Especially like the feature where the view finder can be turned any way you want, which gets it out of the sun which washs the view out. Also it has a camcorder function.
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.
Summary: This camera has served me so well that when one was stolen, I immediately got on Amazon and ordered another one, even though there have been several new models since I purchased this. I raise horses and often have request for new pictures and video, which are both so easy to take, download and send!!! I'm often asked what camera I use and people are often surprised it's a point and shoot. The quality of the photos is fantastic!!
