Summary: This is the BEST camera for a point and shoot! It is compact, easy to use and takes wonderfully clear photos. I have had several people who own other well-known name brand cameras comment on the clarity of the photos and ease of use. It is my second camera of this model and I shopped specifically for it when my other camera was damaged at the airport by the inspectors dropping it on a concrete floor. I would purchase it again and again..
Excerpt: Had bought this before the birth of my first child in may 2010. It has been a great experience. We just love it. it has helped capture many unforgetable memories. i even carried it to india for my vacation. would always recommend it to all!!!!
Excerpt: i have never had a camera this good!!! i have the black one, i got it at my baby shower and have been loving it for 8 months. it takes crisp, clear pictures almost every time!!! this camera makes my pics look professional. the functions are easy to use too! my favorite is the color accent function! i think this camera also has a underwater case that you can but extra. don't have it yet, but that would be sooo cool!!
Canon PowerShot SD comes recommended by Consumer Reports
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I started looking for a camera by looking at the reviews from Consumer Reports. What impressed me about it was the high ratings it received from them and its simultaneously affordable price tag. I ordered it immediately and have been nothing but impressed. My favorite features are the 4x zoom, which is great for a camera of it's size and cost. The 12.1 megapixels give such clarity and sharpness to the pictures.
Excerpt: As far as point and shoot cameras are considered - Canon is the best. They are easy to use, have a lot of functions (if you want to use them, otherwise there is always AUTO) - and do the job really well. I have owned several cameras before I decided to stick with Canon - and all of them were disappointments. Canon is very small - about the size of the iPhone, and take amazing pictures for that itsy bitsy size!
Excerpt: First, I must admit that I am no expert photographer. i only use the camera to record vacations, family events and other everyday stuff. I am very happy with my Canon camera, though. I have not really tried a lot of different features on it. Most of the time I just leave the settings on automatic. Surprisingly enough the pictures are coming out great. So it can be said that this camera is pretty much idiot proof.
