Excerpt: I really like this camera. We received it as a gift 2 years ago for our wedding, and LOVE IT! We take it everywhere with us, and it takes great pictures and videos. We don't own a camcorder, but its ok, cause we can use our Canon PowerShot to record small clips of events in our life. I really recommend this camera. We have never had a problem with it, and like I said before, it takes GREAT pictures!
Basic, good for those who want a basic digital camera witha zoom

Excerpt: My family got me this camera for my birthday after my older cannon power shot died. I really liked it at first and really like that it has a nice zoom compared to other digital. The down side is it doesn't always take the clearest shot, and because its a quick shot you can't really do anything to adjust to get a better photo. I would say its good if you just want basic photos, but if you want to do anything more with it I would look for something else.
Excerpt: I was recently shopping around for a replacement of my standard 35mm camera to something more up-to-date like digital without having to spend money and time the old fashion way of buying films and developing. That's when I came across the Cannon SX 100. I am not an expert on cameras but I knew that Cannon was a brand I could trust, after doing a little research in the net I came to the conclusion that was the right camera for me as an amateur I did not have the...
Excerpt: My husband & I bought this as our Christmas present and I'm very pleased with it. It's nice to be across the room & zoom in on a face! I do still get some blurry pictures despite the image stabilization, but I figure that's just me getting used to the camera.I put a 2GB SanDisk Ultra II SD card in it and have all the photo capacity I could ever want!
Excerpt: My husband and I bought this camera about 2 years ago. It has been a fabulous camera. I love the fact that I can take pictures or short films with the same camera. There is a larger view screen which makes taking pictures that much easier. I love this camera. I do have 2 complaints, however they are small. I wish the motion stabilizer/flash would pop up on it's own and I wish that it was a little bit faster on the kids and pets setting.
Easy to use, small, you will want to carry it everywhere.

Excerpt: A camera that even a beginner can use. It lets you see the pictures right after you take them and delete the picture if you aren't happy with it. Not only can you use it as a camera but you can also use it to record video clips (movies), the length of the clip is only limited by the size of the memory card you have. There is a built in flash as well as the a zoom lens. It runs forever on the batteries. It was over 6 months before I had to change batteries.
Excerpt: Used a Kodak 5 megapixel for 5 years until it died. Replaced it with the Canon SX100 after weeks of research. It is easy to use though I have yet to try all it's features. So easy to use that my 4 year old grandson can take really great photos. The stabilization has reduced having blurry pictures. The 10x zoom is fantastic letting me take pictures of objects from my deck down to my back fence or take a picture of a butterfly up close.
Excerpt: The Canon PowerShot SX100 IS digital camera is a lovely camera that takes lovely pictures. I especially love the huge zoom, which allows me to take pictures of things that I would never be able to capture with my old camera. It is extremely reliable -- I have dropped it several times and it still works perfectly fine! There are a few issues that I dislike about this camera.
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.
