excellent point and shoot (Abdul — 10/12/2009)

Very impressive entry level point and shoot. has nice hand grip and battery life is also very good, whereas olympus digital cameras which uses AA size and consumes a lot of batteries, which makes my preference Canon over Nikon, Olympus etc. excellent low light capturing capability, outdoor and indoor daylight as well.

BEST camera i have ever seen (Dano — 10/12/2009)

This entry level camera is excellent choice for novices who don't know even the basics of tradional film photography. they don't know even the features like image stabilizer. these people are usually frustrated by their camera phones and want a separate, reasonably priced digital camera. for such people, no camera is a better bargain than this. in many respects, it's image LCD sensor is so great that it takes very sharp focus which one wouldn't expect from entry level point and shoot. even when we wear light colored clothes this takes picture in which even non photogenic colors are also visible. good low light and night performance. As i have explained above that novice people do not know the basics of photography so they need an affordable entry level digital camera which focuses well and finally takes great snapshots. it's an excellent choice

Best Camera (MUHAMMAD DANYAL SIDDIQUI — 05/05/2009)

i have experienced this cameraGood for entry level category in many respect firstly it has motion detection technology to beat the blur very sharp images even after cropping process secondly the most appeal shooting mode to me is Easy mode which automatically the amount of flash light to be shoot according to current lighting situation to give perfet accurate results auto mode gives minmum iso to avoid noise i have started digital photography from my cameraphone Nokia 3110 classic 1.3 megapixel i was very worried about the quality of picture whenever i shoot even night mode is not sufficent to beat the noise dark corners have prominent noise appear clearly which i feel shame to show my captured picture to anyone then i used three softwares name Ulead Photoimpact Xl, Light Artist and Neat image to make the image clear this thing shows that digital photography has chances of enhancement which gives preference over traditional film photofraphy i must say that this camera is very good point and shoot compact camera only ot takes too much batteries which makes me little bit frustrate otherwise quality of images in every low light and proper light siyuation gives lot of entertainment and i have receiveed appreciation among my classfellows by showing this camera this is my first digital camera only battery problem force me to buy another digital camera with lithum battery and it supports Sd cards which are easily available in the market which gives Canon preference over Olympus Sony etc

blury (kimberly — 03/01/2009)

I have had this camera for six months, barely used it and I see today that it is extremely blury. Where is there to go for a replacement! No sign of that.

it is excellent if compared with other digital camera with the same price (amir — 11/01/2008)

Very easy to use, big size for a compact camera…. but it gives you a god grip, nice macro(5 cm ) you can get high detail focus for a small object , and In manual you can adjust the shutter speed up to 15 sec
So it is excellent if compared with other digital camera with the same price
