Summary: item worked as expected. great pictures underwater (pool). didn't get to try it in the ocean. be careful about rinsing and cleaning. the case could scratch easily so be careful. i had purchased previously 2 waterproof cameras that i had to return since they stopped working during my last two vacations. this case protected my camera and i had great pictures when i returned from my most recent vacation. the only downside, it's a bit bulky and heavy so plan for that.
Great Value and GREAT CAMERA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Summary: First i lost my camera when i saw this one it is perfect for what i need it for!!Iam always taking pictures because of my job i was lucky, because this poped up and right place at the right time!! The products name speaks for its self.
Summary: I bought this camera for my daughter when her SD1000 was damaged. It's thicker than a normal PowerShot. I have an SD400 and the 1000 is the same size. When it arrived in the mail I was disappointed at first. It does have some features that the smaller PSs don't. I gave it to my daughter before I had explored everything that was different.
Summary: This little camera arrived perfectly packaged in the original box complete with all the manuals, software and factory service certification. I tested it and was delighted at the ease of use but more importantly the sharp, crisp, accurate color of the final images. The video is a bit jerky and not great but it can capture the moment anyway don't dare put it on a big screen TV.
Summary: My Canon S500 bit the dust (focus guit working) so I went on E-bay and find any good ones so I switched to S400 & S410 which were the same features but 1 less megapixel. If it wasn't for ebay I would be out of luck. They don't sell cameras with the features and quality, which for me has to include an 'eye piece' for viewing the old way. Especially in bright day light. I think the next model SD100 is one of the last like this.
Summary: Very easy to Use, has the ability to be used in multiple areas and Uses, eather as a camera or a video recorder. I have Used this camera for many Years and it takes great pictures in almost any terain. From darker forested areas to Desert. Florida to Calorado, It can be downloaded easily to pc or laptop. You can take it to most Wal Marts or Camera places and have it printed or put on disk.
Summary: The camera has a defective feature and lens related quality issue that was not clarified. It works but not good for any picture takaing you would care to keep or print for your photo album. I will have to purchase one that is in much better shape.
