Canon PowerShot S45

Editor's Review

The Canon PowerShot S45 includes almost all the features of the more expensive G3, with the exception of the flash hot shoe, flip-out LCD screen, and neutral density filter. The S45's image color and quality is excellent, and a surprising number of users enjoy the available underwater case, but an awkward control switch, poor macro capability, and frequent redeye draw consistent complaints.

Not too bad for a first time digital owner (mahdee — 09/08/2006)

This camera is not too bad all around. The shutter mechanism is a bit slow in response and as a result, I do miss that "candid" moment quite often. I am used to the fast reflex of a Nikon SLR manual. Yes, red-eye, but you can set the camera up to reduce it and if you have iPhoto or Photoshop, you can remove any red-eye completely. Next camera will have a micro setting to get the blooms and bugs close up. The battery charge is short from the get go. When it recharges faster, is the signal to get a replacement battery.

I have never wished for more! (Pouya — 08/28/2006)

Cannon S45 has given me almost everything I have expected from a digital camera. As a matter of fact, S45 was the first (and still is!) digital camera by which i started amator photography with different subject in the nature, society and family. Today I count myself as a successful amator photographer who can take people's breath with his photos! I have many photos that are not believed to be taken by a S45.
