Summary: Bought this camera for my daughter's 8th birthday as she needed to move on from a very basic model. Although this has lots of features, it is very easy to navigate and my daughter has mastered a lot of the features including movies and some of the "scenes" (eg landscape, close up, snowscenes). She has even done stop frame animation with it after seeing it done on Blue Peter. It takes sharp photos and seems to cope with an 8 year old's camera shake quite well.
Excerpt: For many years I had a Canon Powershot 500 which I received as a gift. I was quite happy with it but only used a few of it's functions as I only use a camera to take family snaps and also to use at work. If something goes wrong on a boat it is far easier to send a photo of the broken fitting, pipe or whatever than to try and explain it to an owner over the phone, Eventually the Canon came to the end of it's life and we had to look for a replacement.
Pros: Inexpensive, light, good picture quality .
Cons: You need to chane the batteries to the rechargable kind .
Summary: Ok had this camera for a while so time for a review. Looks smart and takes nice piccies especially outdoors. Only thing I notice is ringing on edges...as far as I can tell this is most likely due to high resolution sensors with electronics that cannot keep up.... a 5MP machine we had did not do this. The result is images at native resolution look unreal but once resized down they are fine....as if a sharpen effect had been over applied.
Summary: Nice little camera simple to use. good zoom Picture quality very good.instructions quite easy to follow What more to you want for the price? Our daughter set the camera up for us without having to refer to the instructions Too smart by half these these kids today
Summary: The camera itself is a reasonable price and aesthetically pleasing as it comes in a variety of colours. The pictures themselves are of a good reasonable quality but nothing special. Its a great camera for its price and is light weight and easily stored in small bags etc. Its major flaw and let down is the fact it doesn't come with a rechargeable battery pack. AA batteries must be used.
Summary: Brought this for student daughter, she says its simple to use and pics turn out great, oh and the first words when she saw it was 'it's so cute' so if you want a cute camera for a fashion obsessed girl this is the one.
Summary: This is a great value camera. I bought this for my 13 year old daughters birthday and she loves it. Very easy to use. Down side is that it does not come with a memory card which is why I have given it 4 stars
