A camera that keeps going and going and going...still putting out high qlty
9 August 2013
Summary: I absolutely love this camera. My husband had one and I used it so much that it slowly became mine :-) Now for my daughters, I have purchased three more. It gives forth great photographs, easy to use and dependable. Not a bad decision and an excellent choice for your money.
Summary: I like how it takes good pictures in about any event. It does not blur easy. It picks up light very well. The only thing I do not like is that it turns of too easy if your finger just touches the little slide in the front but other then that it is a fantastic camera
Summary: This is my second S50 and I have been pleased with its simplicity to use but yet offering the variety of functions. Also like the rechargeable batteries and ease of downloading to my computer. Full video functions and details of images all appreciated.
pick one up if you can find one, megapixels are highly overrated

Summary: Great camera, built like a tank, many adjustments, can't go wrong with a powershot. I own many cameras, at least 4 dslrs, and believe me for general purpose, this is all you need most of time.
Very good camera with essential features for a moderately priced camera.

Summary: I bought this camera because I lost my camera which was identical to this one. So I was quite familiar with its operating features. It does not have all the features of the newer cameras now on the market, and it is a bit big and heavy. But it takes excellent pictures and for my use it is an excellent value for the money.
Summary: I have sed story with Canon Powershot S50 5MP Digital Camera. First, I bought one 6 or 7 years ago and many other aplicable items with it such as four batteries, two chargers, several (8 or 9) Viking compact flash, picture copiers, and others. I have lost it. Last year I bought another one of the same kind and did not make a single picture. Some how I fergot it on vacation in the motel I was.
Summary: I originally bought this product not even needing the camera. I had been looking for memory cards and batteries for this camera. I stumbled across this bundle that came with two batteries and two memory cards and i could have cared less about the camera, but as it turns out the camera that came with the batteries and memory cards was better than the one i had already bot.
Summary: About a year ago I labored over which digital camera to buy in the under $500 range. There were so many with excellent ratings. A friend pointed me towards Canon, having 2 hisself. Canon had several entries in this catagory but I decided on the S-50 due to its 5MP resolution and the wide variety of manual settings available. I have not been disappointed. This is a great little camera. Its body is made of metal and is solid feeling.
Pros: Easy to use auto settings that work very well.
Summary: As an avid amateur photographer, I love my Canon EOS SLR, but wanted to buy a digital camera for traveling and family snapshots. Since a digital SLR body was out of my price range, i researched maybe 15 compact digitals before settling on the S50. I'm thrilled with my purchase and would recommend this camera even to folks who, like me, are used to higher-end SLRs. The S50 offers an incredible array of features and options in an improbably small package.
