The canon powershot SX100 IS Is a good camera for beginners.

Excerpt: The Canon Powershot SX100 IS is a good camera for beginners. People that want pro quality pictures easy will love this camera. With a zoom lens of 10 x15 is really nice on zooming in on a band at a concert if you're too far back. The face finder will make it easyer to find your daughter in a dance recitle or your son in a group of kids playing soccer. Downside, the wheel on top is easy to turn and can turn without you knowing you've gone from auto to manual.
not for people who are not fimiliar with all the different options...

Summary: I got this camera as a gift for Christmas a few years ago after doing a lot of research. I am into taking somewhat artsy photos, but am not fimilar with all the different settings and options it requires to take a great picture, so I thought this would be a great camera for me as it seemed pretty simply to figure out. I guess I was looking for something with similar features to a digital slr without the size (and price).
"Lens error for the third time will cost me a new camera"

Pros: The camera is technically a mixed bag. It does everything you want except if you bump it or get dust into it. Then you are in trouble.
Cons: The lens error has occurred three times since Oct 2008. the first two times i was lucky and the tech guys fixed it. on the third time, the guys could not fix it. Compare this with my other Canon powershot A470 which continues to work just fine.

Summary: I loved this camera, although it has been surpassed by newer models. The 10x optical zoom was great, the flip-up flash meant never blinding kids in the school play by accident (or on purpose!), it fits easily in a pocket so you don't have to decide whether to carry it somewhere, the software/menus are simple, and the picture and video quality is great.
It loves the AA batteries! Thieves love this Canon.

Summary: I had this camera for a couple of months and used it only a few times. It went through batteries so fast that I knew I couldn't take it on a trip and would have to purchase another camera. It takes nice photos but it's not a camera for travel. I paid $235 at BuyDig so I advertised it for $197 on Amazon Market Place. It sold immediately! I sent the camera to the buyer and after I sent it, he wanted to cancel and get his money back knowing it had to be sent within 2 days..
Summary: I bought this product to take on a trip to Europe and I used the automatic feature almost exclusively. I was not pleased with the quality of a large number of my photos. It was a big let down. I had bought it to increase the number of megapixels over my old camera and thought the quality would be even better than my old camera. It was not even as good.
Summary: Only thing that it can boast about is its 10X optical zoom. The low light capabilities are very poor, nowhere near Canon's usual standards. Comparable models of Panasonic T series & Sony H series stand way better in terms of picture quality.
Summary: I bought this camera thinking I had finally found the perfect one... Unfortunately I was very disappointed. I wanted a compact camera that still had long zoom and in that aspect, this camera was perfect. It is very light, good size camera and has the 10x optical zoom. The outdoor pictures are good, but indoor pictures along with the time between flash shots is what prompted me to return this camera and pay a little more to get the Sony DSC H10.
