Summary: Here's a story for you. Someone dropped my SD700 from five feet onto a metal floor while the lens was fully extended. The camera landed on the lens, bouncing once. When I picked it up, one of the lens components was crooked.
Pros: - Great picture quality - Image stabilization works great in low-light - VERY good video quality
Summary: Still overall super camera. I have taken some pictures that I would swear a professional took if I didn't remember taking them. That has never happened to me before this camera. I seriously can't believe how awesome some of my pictures have come out, and I am a complete photography beginner.
Pros: Takes great pictures in the automatic mode, so you really can just point and shoot, Long lasting battery, The screen adjusts to show the picture upright no matter which way you hold it (neato!), Small, Takes good video, Scene modes are cool (especially color accent), Start up is super quick, and ...
Cons: Color swap only works okay, Good night pictures require a lot of messing with the manual settings (not so easy for the beginner) and then they still have a little graininess
Pros: This is a GREAT camera and I am so please with the deal I received from Newegg. My favorite feature is the color accent where it pulls out one color of your choosing in the picture and then makes everything else black and white.
Summary: With a 2 GB sd ram card you can take about 30 minutes of very high quality videos. I took it on a trip to Hong Kong and China. It is cheaper to buy it from newegg than it would have been to buy it at the discount stores in Hong Kong.
Pros: Simple, sharp pictures. Amazing videos with image stabilization
Cons: Has a low battery warning indicator but does not have a battery gauge. I am never sure when I have to charge it.
Pros: I have only had the camera for one week, but i have taken hundreds of pictures testing it out. IS: Is amazing, you had to shake radically in order to get any blur at all. Great for small cameras. Also, the shipping, i have ordered hundreds of things, hands down fastest shipping ever from newegg. ...
Cons: The optical finder is kind of in a weird position, you gotta like push your nose on the screen to use it. Also, the manual options are not very deep. Granted, this is great functionality for what 90% of users use it for. I bought this for the wife, I'm spoiled by my G6.
Pros: I have taken over 250 pictures already and they are very sharp. I use this camera for a photography course I am taking at present and plan on buying a DSLR camera shortly from newegg. The instructor is very pleased with my photos and I use the manual control settings and have had no problems so f...
Cons: The flash is a little weak and the camera body scratches if you are not careful.
Pros: I bought this for my wife as a simple point and shoot with Image Stabilization (IS). The IS really helps in long zoom shots and/or low light conditions. It's a true optical stabilization unlike the high ISO (lots of noise) or digital attempts by F**i or C***o. Easy to use even for the new to digi...
