Solid, very decent camera

Summary: I purchased this camera a little over a year ago. It is a solid and pretty well-built camera, compared to a CanonA530 that I also own. The SD500 is more expensive and of higher quality than the A530, as would be expected. The A530 is actually lighter than the SD500, although bulkier.

Summary: Just bought this camera to replace the sd300 I got last december. The sd300 got left at the park. Not by me. When out last elph met it's early end, I was short on cash so went for a nikon L3. This elph is so much better of a camera.
Summary: I love this camera. It's my second Canon and, at 7MP, the best value for the money I've seen. I took it to France this summer and loved the fact that I could recharge the battery overnight while my friends were constantly changing their batteries (and searching for places to buy them!).
Summary: I'm by no means an expert! This is the first digital I have owned. It took me a long time because I was so used to my film camera. But I searched long and hard to find what I thought I wanted. And so far I am not disappointed.
Summary: I LOVE THIS CAMERA! I bought it to keep in my diaper bag so I always have a camera with me. It's small, easy to use and takes great pictures. I recently sent a few in to have them developed and they came out great.
Summary: Here is the good: The pictures seem good. The features are good. The menus are pretty easy to operate. It is VERY fast to start up. I love that! I can whip it out of my pocket and take a picture on a few seconds notice (after I put my glasses on...see below). The battery life, so far, seems ok.
Excerpt: I have had this Canon SD500 for a few months now. It was a gift from my girlfriend. I LOVE this small camera. I had an older Canon S20 or something, one of the first digital Elfs. It was an awesome 2MP camera, but on …
Summary: I have owned 5 canon cameras before I purchased the SD500. I Owned two Powershot s50's Both of which I loved. I lost the first S50 after two years of use. It had been taken to Europe and all over the world dropped many times and was beat up pretty bad but the LCD was always fine .
Summary: I'm going to state it right away, I am a die-hard Canon fan. I have Canon digital and film slr's, flashes, lenses, bags, the whole deal. But, I'm not so blinded by camera love that I can't spot crap when I see it.
Summary: I purchased this camera a few months ago, and was torn between the SD500 and SD550. After what seemed like weeks of painful research, I went with the SD500, and have been delighted. Coming from Canon's Powershot A-series, I was a bit skeptical about the SD's being able to produce decent quality.
