Summary: I used an old Fuji 4.1 megapixel Finepix for 5 years and grew pretty comfortable with it. When it finally pooped out on me, I wasn't sure what to get to take it's place. I started looking around for something that wasn't too pricey, was simple and fun to use and maybe even had a cute color to it. I wanted to be able to take pictures of kids who move around a lot, but it didn't have to be the most fancy camera in the world.
Summary: We have had this camera for only 6 months but love it! We have had no trouble with it until I dropped in on the hardwood floor today. Being my fault, I can't complain about it. Since the one we have is now getting repaired, I went ahead and ordered another one because we need it for vacation. It is super easy to use and we get 8X10 pictures made all the time and they look great! You can print up to 16X20 and still get a good quality.
Summary: I own Nikon DSLR and yes S230 camera won't produce as nice of a quality pics as my DSLR, but my DSLR won't fit in my pocket and much more expensive. So I got this camera to take quick pics when I go out and when I don't want to take my expensive camera since I am paranoid about damaging it. Also S230 has ability to take videos up to 30 min. Great thing in my opinion.
Summary: This is a great camera with excellent picture quality, especially for the price. The camera itself has several different options for shooting and it is somewhat simple. It is very sleek and the portability is great! It weighs next to nothing and fits pretty much anywhere you would carry a phone. The only con to this product is the touch screen. I am so used to my iPhone touchscreen being glass, this one feels like plastic.
Summary: Firstly, it is very visually appealing. The plum color is beautiful, it is sleek, thin, lightweight and looks perfect. The touch screen is easy to use and making using the camera very easy. It is much nicer to go through the settings with the touch screen, rather than have to use buttons. The picture quality is pretty good. You really have to use the settings that are available in order to get good pics.
Summary: Not a bad little camera. The touch screen is a great option, the size is compact, and the shooting modes are more numerous than I can possibly explain. The battery life is pretty good considering the screen is on all the time to take pictures and video. And even tho the pics on screen don't look perfect, when you transfer them to your computer the 10MP doesn't let you down. Most of the complaints I see are about the quality of the pictures...
