Summary: bought this camera on ThanksGiving day while with the family.Needed one my other one died. Other than signs of wear which was noted before purchase, was delivered in a few days in its original box, it meets all my needs and it has a rechargable battery. I love it. always had good results with Ebay.
Excerpt: The Canon PowerShot SD 500 is a digital camera that pretty much anyone could use. The camera Is a good sized and fits perfectly in to my little feminine hands, and my daughters too. In fact if I make an oval with my thumbs and pointer fingers the camera fits perfectly in there. It is about 4 inches in length, and about 2 inches thick. The camera fits easily in to my purse, and it is not that heavy nor does it take up that much space.
Excerpt: This camera is small, easy-to-use, and economical. Very important for me, it has a viewfinder. I can't see an LCD screen without my reading glasses and, if I wear my reading glasses, I can't see what I'm taking a picture of. So having a viewfinder that allows me to see the picture without my reading glasses is critical. Pictures are of excellent quality, capable of being reproduced at a commercial quality level.
Excerpt: The Canon PowerShot SD500 was one of my first digital cameras :D At the time, I just really wanted any kind of camera so that I could take pictures with my friends and preserve the memories. I found it to be a pretty nice camera. The quality of the pictures were pretty darn nice too, considering that it's a 7.1 megapixel camera. Of course at the time, I didn't know much about cameras so I didn't know how good/bad that was.
Excerpt: I have some very fond memories of this camera. It took great shots, and was very easy to use. It takes an SD Flash card, so therefore, the memory is dependent on the size of the SD Flash card. The camera was rather compact, but maybe not as compact as some of the cameras out there right now.
Excerpt: I've been using a Pentax 35mm for over 20 years and really miss the feel and shutter speed of it, but really enjoy the convenience of taking as many pictures as I want without worry. It's fun to have the instant image as well and the pictures that I've had printed from it are a very good quality. But I find that I print less pictures and rely more on the computer and websites to view and share photos.
Excerpt: I purchased this camera in 2005. This camera is awesome! Back then there highest megapix were 500. Today as you know there's many more! The picture quality is great... to me, it equals whats out there today. The only problem is... I now love the larger screen in which they make now. And also, when you take picture, you have to be very still.... other than take... I would totally recommend this camera to anyone!
Summary: Purchased this used SD500 camera for my 12 year old daughter because the prices for a "quality" portable one-time-use camera is high~way robbery! I just spent $16.99 for a 24 count flash portable camera for her overnight bible retreat trip and was not pleased with the quality of the photos which cost an add'l 8 bucks to process - - - REALLY?!?!?!?!?!? I am happy with my purchase (gently used with software, battery & recharger etc.) for $80 bucks (shipping free).
