I had this camera for two years and I must say that is quite resistent. The image quality is great and its a perfect cam to daylight sports shots. Problems: With low light it has a difficulty to focus.

Careful testing of this after a recent purchase for my daughter shows it to be a very capable little camera. Obvious plus points compared with the competition - very good autofocus(including low-light illuminator), very well-exposed pictures with superb colour, optical viewinder is large and bright enough to be usable, LCD is sharper than many, ability to shoot films with audio at 640x480 is much better than most. Ability to set ISO at 50 and compression to extra-fine give best chance of ...

Guess what??? I was so amazed by this camera. This is my first digital camera,I bought it 5 months ago and I was so satisfied with it. I've shooted hundreds of pictures, from macros to sceneries. I'm considering to upgrade it to Canon S50 or Canon A80. I swear, you'll not gonna regret it. See my pictures gallery @: http://tomyj-a300.fotopic.net Problems: No optical zoom, that's the only problem for me. But it's worth the money for 3.2 MP digital camera. Sorry for my English :-)

The camera is loaded with features that I've never had before which means I can do more with it. I had heard that this camera had a slow shutter time but I think that the reviews I had read on this camera where wrong. The delay is due to the auto phocus feature. I have always heard that if all else fails read the instructions. This camera is A-1 for me. Problems: The only problem I encountered was battery life (alkaline)remedy is rechargable or Lithium batteries

I bought this camera from Dell for my daughter for Christmas for US$169 including 2-day shipping. All in all, a superb value. Super easy to use, and the image quality is excellent, despite the fact that there is no optical zoom. The only gripe is that it eats AA batteries like crazy, but we're looking into rechargables. Bottom line: highly recommended for the money.

For the size and price I think Canon has a winner. This is my third digital (first Canon) and ease of operation is not one of its qualities. Images are good. Battery life could be better but what can one expect from AA batteries. Lack of a Zoom feature may be overcome by holding the camera in the face of a subject to get a 'head' shot- - not very candid! Use the LCD to frame shots for the view finder ahows only about 80%. Problems: I cannot get the camera into the manual mode no matter what I ...

This is a fantastic little pocketable camera, as the owner of a PowerShot G2 I was looking for something small to take out for less challenging snaps and the A300 certainly doesn't disappoint. The image quality of this camera is excellent. I went on a recent trip to the Snowdonia National Park and took a selection of photos side by side with my G2 and when taking comparable shots (i.e. no zoom) the difference in quality isn't that significant. For macro shots I would actually say that the ...

I did quite a bit of research before buying my second digital camera (this one) and I am extremely happy with what I got. This nifty little camera is awesome with a lot of features including the same movie/sound features found in the a70 (which is $200 more expensive). Between the two I believe this one offers more for your buck as the a70 has perhaps slightly better picture quality and a couple of additional features but I wouldn't pay the extra $200 for it!! This camera kills the ...

Excellent value. Light and compact, good handling. Accessing some of the manual functions is somewhat confusing. I like that it uses compact flash, so I don't need another PCMCIA adapter. Digital zoom is a marketing feature.
