Summary: Specifically, I hate that it's taken me over a year to acknowledge that this camera just isn't that good. No hope of returning it now. I bought this camera after reading a bunch of reviews online.
Summary: I bought this camera for my sister. She is a flight attendant and travels a lot with only a carry on bag. Even though this camera is the same size as most other digital cameras it is still nice to be able to fit it and it's cord in a small pocket.
Summary: I ordered this camera as a simple point and shoot to use when I don't want to carry a large camera and it was particularly important that it took decent video for short clips of random things. This camera lived up to all of my expectations and more.
Summary: It was a nice camera, except for the fact that the lens can't handle anything! I got this camera May 18th this year to replace my last camera, which was also an SL820 (The lens got stuck after doing a video outside while it was snowing)(It died on March 2nd this year).
Summary: Bought this for my wife for Christmas, mostly for the good resolution and features like "smart mode". First off, most of the modes end up making the picture taking so slow that you have to plan your pictures well in advance. Ironic, really, when you've got modes like "children playing".
Summary: I've purchased this camera nearly a year ago and have been pleased with the pictures and the small form factor. I'm not thrilled with the proprietary USB cable but very much like the LED battery charge indicator on the plug which saves me from having to turn the camera on and look at the battery...
Summary: This is by far the best camera I have ever owned. Images are crisp and clear in light or dark. I havent messed around with editing the videos, however they do turn out nice. The only thing I do not like about this camera is that the lens gets stuck open on mine, a lot.
Summary: It's a great camera. Good design and battery life. The only thing I find difficult is when i take pictures in night mode. Your hands need to be very steady while taking pictures in night mode otherwise, pics get blurry.
