Excerpt: I recently purchased the Canon Powershot sx100. It was a replacement for my old 5 megapixel Kodak camera. I had lost the zoom lens for the Kodak camera and after being told that it would cost almost the value of the camera to repair, I decided to look for …
Best Brand! Better Pictures Then More Expensive Cameras
15 June 2012
Summary: My brother bought this camera a couple years back and we were both amazed at how well it worked. Very good auto focus. The camera can make bad photographers take good photos. He later got a 500 dollar camera to replace it and asking people which pictures they liked better out of the new and old camera, they always choose this one. I am about to get the sx150is and am hoping for the same quality.
Summary: this product is perfect for any professional photography situation.important professional video quality. high focus , brilliant flash .easy and confy to use with the multipule function of its keys
Summary: At this price point, the good mostly outweighs the bad here. If you are looking for a camera for travel, this gives you a long zoom, and thus a lot more freedom in what you can shoot, than a standard 3x zoom, without the bulk and weight of larger cameras and DSLRs. If your photography consists of mainly people, at all hours of the day and indoors, you might want to avoid this camera as it will feel too slow to get the shots you want.
Summary: I really like this camera. It's size was a bit of concern prior to purchase. Since I have received the camera and used it, no problems. It's no larger to carry than my girlfriends Kodak. The zoom is great. I used it on the golf course to photo some friends swing. I was able to capture some pic's without blur my first try. I would recommend the camera without hesitation.
Summary: The outstanding feature of this camera is that it is powered by double A batteries so you need never be without power, even if your rechargeable AAs run out of juice- you can buy double A batteries anywhere in the world. The camera is easy to use and enjoys all the normal features of a digital pocket camera. Furthermore it is incredibly tough, though it is more bulky and heavier than some slimmer digitals.
Summary: Love the camera and even though it is not the latest and greatest, this camera has all the features that I was looking for. 8.0 Megapixel is more than large enough to capture detail of any photo that I want to take. The 10X zoom allows me to get close ups of the grandkids and any wildlife (birds, etc.) that I cross paths with.
Summary: I used this camera on Christmas day for the first time. I was able to take wonderful photos with it. Although it has many settings and will require that I read the manual to get full use of them, I was able to use the auto setting and the results were great. I already have a Panasonic Lumix, which I really like because of the quality of photos and ease of use, but my son wanted a larger camera so we got this for him. I think he will be very pleased with it.
Summary: This camera takes very good pictures that are crisp and clear. Downside is that it uses aprox 1 set of batteries per aprox 50 pictures taken. Otherwise an excellent camera with compact size and ease of use. I bought camera for a back up as my wife and I have 3 35mm canon cameras and 1 sony dual meda camera that uses a floppy disk and a memory stick to record pictures on. my overall grade for this camera is very good and worth the money!
