  • Summary: Love the size, weight and picture quality. The auto settings generally produce a good quality picture. I'm a little disappointed with the flash range.

Great for everyday snapshots

Go Gators!, Amazon

  • 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.

Nice little camera

Yankee Fan, Amazon

  • 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.

Fantastic Camera

Gil B., Newegg
31 May 2005
  • Summary: I went to Las Vegas with this camera and took over 230 pictures. Very clear and easy to use. The different modes make it idle for every different lighting condition. The digital zoom is also extremely nice, I was able to take pictures of mountains thousands of miles away from the airplane window.

Great Little Camera!

NLD, Amazon

  • 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.

Great camera

Jeffrey S. Schweitzer "dentate", Amazon
14 February 2005
  • Summary: Purchased this camera two weeks ago and am delighted. Great quality pictures and video. It is true that you really do need to read the instructions, but even playing with the knobs and dials on this little wonder is educational and it is not difficult to figure out most things.

Good camera in a tough competition

Eddy Poon, Amazon
19 October 2004
  • 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.
