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 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: 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.
Summary: This is great camera. The pictures are very clear. It is easy to download to the computer. The batterie last long, and charging it is fast. This camera is worth every penny and more. The SD card is easy to remove and put back. It is light weight and small enough to fit in a pocket. Love this camera.
Summary: Sure, this won't live up to the hype or quality of an SLR digital, or some of the mid-size digitals, but it certainly packs a punch for its size. Perfect for applications that put size/weight at a premium (backpacking, sports, social parties, etc.). I am very pleased with the purchase.
Summary: I bought this camera because my old camera (a Sony) fell victim to discontinued Sony technology. Sony stopped selling the Memory Sticks that my camera supported (and a lot of other Sony products supported), and they chose to make their new memory sticks such that they were not compatible with the...
Summary: This camera is well worth the money! I needed a good camera because I am majoring in Graphic Design. My teacher recommended getting the Canon SD400, but he told me that that the Canon SD500 was an even better choice if I could afford it. I have become a Canon fan for life. They are the best!
Summary: The color-swap feature is cool - pick a color you want to replace, choose its replacement, and you'll see the new color on the LCD w/o having to take the picture. Easy way to convince the wife that new front-door paint job will look good.
Pros: The 3x optical zoom works well. The AiAF autofocus feature does a passable job of picking out what to focus on. And the battery lasts longer than I expected it would.
Cons: When the battery runs out, you have to remove it from the camera to recharge it. The included 32MB card is laughably small - 9 total highest-res pictures.
Pros: tons of photo options, super-small, large LCD, excellent quality photo's and video....overall great-looking camera that's a blast to use
Cons: while I have not had any true mechanical problems yet, that big LCD screen is SUPER easy to scratch (well that is if you're wife puts it in a purse with her keys) and the nice-looking silver casing also scratches easily....other than that no problemo
