Summary: We had this exact camera and have always liked it. It is an older model now as of 2012, but serves our basic needs. The old one got broken so we were able to get a replacement and still use our batteries and other accessories.

Summary: It is a good back up that just sits, there, ready to save you on a day that you thought that you forgot your camera! Remember at one time this was the best you could get it, and it wont let you down. So buy a good back up battery and enjoy these great cameras.
Summary: Very nice images and very easy to use and understand to navigate this camera is not too technical and recommended if you just want an average camera to use for those special and memorible moments
Summary: Handling: The interface is similar to that in other Canon digital compacts, which helps your learning curve. The case is in metal, except the USB and the battery cover. They are both made of plastic and feel very fragile. The metal tripod mount is located closely below the lens. The LCD screen is reasonably viewable under daylight conditions.
Summary: I've taken it out with me just about everywhere. It works great. The pictures are good. The only problems I've had are with red eye inside and some blurriness on a few occasions. I think I was shaking a little on those. The red eye just might be because I didn't have the red eye reduction turned on. I've also had some weird blue eye effects from time to time. I would recommend purchasing an extra battery.
Summary: I purchased this camera to replace a Pentax Optio 330 which got wet and died. This is a nice little camera, much smaller than the small Pentax that it replaced. It takes very nice pictures. The LCD screen is nice and bright, but beware - it scratches easily. The pictures don't seem as vivid as they did with the Pentax, but they could be considered more realistic with the Canon.
Summary: This was my first foray into a digital camera that came with much dismay about whether to finally take the plunge. Having been a long time Canon 35mm owner, I looked at this and many other options. This camera has been a great find. It has a large screen, easy to use controls for point and shoot fun. I used this camera on a recent week long trip to China after having owned it for only one week. I hauled along the 35mm just in case...
