Canon's best Point and Shoot ever

Antoni Scott, Amazon
10 November 2009
  • Summary: Point and shoot camera's are a dime a dozen. Figuring out which one even comes close to being good is difficult at best. I came across this camera purely by accident when a friend of mine lent me his Canon Powershot S45. Image quality was stunning !!!

Great compact yet powerful digital camera

  • Summary: I've used my friend's and mine now for 2 years. They are great. We took one backpacking in South America for 2 months and it survived and never gave us any problems. It's great for landscape and taking pictures of friends, etc.

Great product, fine pics, very durable

Amazon
14 July 2004
  • Summary: I have a lot of experience with a wide range of fully manual SLRs and digital SLRs, and this camera stacks up nicely. As an architecture student, I bought the S50 to have a quick alternative for shooting models, sites and other miscellaneous scenography to use in large scale presentation format.

Great pictures from a tiny camera!

Amazon
7 April 2004
  • 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.

One Year of Great Pictures, but Many Limitations

Richard R. Zellner "ttdragster", Amazon
5 April 2004
  • Summary: I have been meaning to give this camera a fair review since I bought it last spring, so I spent some time trying all of the features and testing its limitations. While this and most similar digital cameras take some very clear shots, there are too many cases where digital distortion and blurred...

It's a nice camera, but...

20 March 2004
  • Summary: I've been mixed on how to review the Canon S50. I bought it after much thought vs the Canon G5 or the newer Olympus cameras, and overall I'm relatively pleased, but I did have my share of problems with it.

S400 vs S50 - What a dilemma!

JanSobieski, Amazon

  • Summary: I own a 10D which I absolutely love and was getting tired of using my old Olympus Epic (a GREAT film camera) and was looking for a good digital point and shoot. My two major candidates were the S400 and the S50.

Satisfied

Bluesy200 "Bluesy200", Amazon
4 March 2004
  • Summary: I'm new to digital photography. This camera was fairly intuitive to master. The accompanying software is excellent and makes downloads to the computer painless. It takes stunningly good photos, and that's the important thing. The video quality, however, is yucko.
