Summary: This camera is not user friendly, and doesn't take very good quality pictures. They tend to be grainy and lack true color. It is also difficult to obtain sharp images, they tend to come out blurry. I have to take three or four shots and hope one comes out good.
Summary: Wonderful camera. I read the previous reviews, and they didn't steer me wrong!! While playing with this camera, I was sitting on my couch; aimed it out of the front door, and across 5 lanes of traffic, two medians, a parking lot and still was able to take a picture of a balcony of the apartment...
Summary: I've had quite a few Point and Shoot cameras, and this one is probably the best. I only have a few issues with it. I don't use most of the modes. I take nice pictures by just using the Auto Picture mode. The videos taken are decent too. Small zoom. I wish the zoom was a little bit better.
Summary: This is the best camera I have ever own I love it it is fun takes wonderful pics, you can even take a picture of documents and it is so clear, the color is awesome also when uploading them they are clear a must camera
Summary: This camera was exactly what I was looking for! I am very happy with its performance, the picture quality, battery life, features and how easy it is to use, and for the price, it can't be beat.
Summary: I bought the optio s12 two months ago, before I had s6 and s10, and always I'm impressed with its versality, power, quality on this small and inexpensive digital cam, very important to me its wireless remote control, no available in others cam. I'd recommend the optio s12 if you need a digital cam.
Summary: I bought this camera for my wife's birthday present (Dec. 15). She is "electronicly challenged", but it is so easy for her to use. The pictures are so clear. I am sure there are better cameras out there, but I don't think you'll beat this one for the price. I am more than pleased, I am ecstatic.

Summary: Camera is easy to operate and fun to use. When my wife saw it she started using it and likes if better than her large big name camera and I have to fight her to get to use it. For its small size it has a lot of features that normally are only found on larger more expensive cameras.
