I have owned this camera since March 03. It has served me relentlessly well. Easy to learn. Beautiful pics for such a basic little camera. Colors are true. Flash is more than adequate. Super reliable. A joy to have and use. Still going strong after all this time. I love it! Upgrading is proving hard. Returning the SD 890 IS I just got a couple of weeks ago, because it is very disappointing. Problems: Must remember to get a small case for next camera. This one got pretty banged up flailing ...

I loved this camera and have had it for four years - bought it new in Dec 2002. However a month ago I accidentally knocked it from a desk to a carpeted floor, when the zoom was open, and after that any pictures taken with it had lines across them and were very washed out looking. I got a quote for repair [$294 AUST] and was willing to go ahead with that, but a few days later was told that the parts were unavailable [the zoom lens assembly or optical unit for that model is not made anymore]. ...

strongly built little camera which I bought to take to work in my jacket pocket etc and wanted a metal small camera. Writes faster than my Nikon 5400 and the zoom works pretty well, but to get the best shots, switch to manual and use center zoom and kick the iso up to 200 to avoid low shutter camera shake. White balance ok, flash weak esp at lower iso. Images not as sharp as Nikon 2100, but that is a plastic camera Problems: Lens is often not sharp and auto settings will let focus lock on ...

First, this camera is not discontinued, the S100 is. I bought this camera to go to the Netherlands for sightseeing and to visit my daughter going to school there. That said, I think 95% of you can stop looking because this camera has all the features you will ever need. I looked at many cameras for months but knew I wanted an Elph for the size, it was just which one. I really wanted 3X zoom and 3 MEG but they don't make that combo. The S330 is discontinured (and larger) the S230 is too ...

I purchased this camera 6 months ago and I love it! The small size makes it easy to take anywhere. It takes great photos and is easy to use (even for a 1st digital camera). I highly recommend this camera. Problems: None!

I've just bought this camera and I found it a good camera for beginners like me. The resourses are good and the size is ideal for a pocket. Problems: I compare the resolution of the LCD of this camera with the S110 and I found it very poor and noise in low light(like an olt tv). I don't think if this is normal or not. I read some reviews and I found two of than complaining the same. If someone explaining me, I thank you.

Using a digicam as a work tool I have found the S200 to be fairly easy to use but difficult to manipulate within Mac OSX..I Photo does not " see" the S200 as I have initially set it up.Size and construction are great as is the feature set of this tiny camera. Having paid just USD 259 inclusive of rechargeable and recharger at B and H I am not complaining.My gut feel tho..my Sony DSC 30 is going to last longer. Problems: The USB connector (camera side) feels very delicate ..why the push click ...

This is a great little camera! All of my pictures have turned out well! It doesn't have high megapixels, but is more than sufficient for my needs! I love that you can take it everywhere easily, the panoramic shots are a piece of cake, and the short movie clips are a fun little bonus! The software more than meets my needs. All in all, I am very pleased with this camera! A few "must haves" for this camera include an extra battery and at least a 128 CF! I also prefer a CF reader that is ...

Not exactly a plug and play for me... I had some problems installing the WIA driver on my Windows ME system. Windows XP did the trick. Besides this problem, so far the pictures are looking great. The ISO settings can be adjusted when the camera is in manual mode which I really like (50-400). I paid about $400 CND for this camera which is OK...could've gotten something else (say 3 MBP and 3x optical zoom) but Cannon has a good reputation for picture quality and the sleek design of the camera ...
