Pros: Built solidly - with a beautiful finish and design Slim - pocketable Excellent battery life Great image quality for a camera in this class; great 4 MP resolution Quick performance Very easy to use/ get to know Durable Highly recommended for a point & shoot if you don't mind having minimal manual controls. Problems: I've owned two of these. The second one was serviced at Canon for a problem with the lens. They replaced the lens in it's entirety. Also, as with many digital cameras, pixels ...

This is a great camera and takes the best quality pictures that I have seen from a camera with the same mega pixel and price range. I recommend this model to anyone looking for a good quality camera for a good price. Canon is the best! Problems: None at all!

Wow, I've had this camera for over two years now. Who knows how many pictures I've actually taken, but I've saved over 20,000 of them. The construction is solid. I've dropped it numerous times, maybe 5 or so directly onto solid rock (which put some stratches on it), but it keeps working great. What has really caused me to love this camera is the image quality -- AMAZING for a compact point and shoot. Outdoor shots with sufficient lightning are realistic and life-like color, without being too ...

I am an Inspector for a refinery and need a camera that is small, rugged and a no brainer to use. This camera more than fits the bill. Photos are bright and sharp. Macro is good too. Problems: Suggest you hold the trigger down halfway for a second to allow the camera to focus. Then squeeze the trigger slowly. This is a small camera and photos can sometimes be blurry if you are not carefull.

Hello. This is the 4th or 5th ELPH I have owned, dating back to the S110. About a year ago I sold my S400 and have frequently regretted it. Just picked this one up at Circuit City on close out, and could not pass it up for the great price. I feel these cameras need to be used with the full knowledge that they are not for the novice, they require a solid understanding of how they function along with the dexterity to achieve consistently great results. The lens is slow (common to all small ...

I received this camera as a gift directly from Japan. I use it in auto mode to take snapshots. I love the size and the way I can take photos with one hand. The LCD is small but very bright so I can see it in average daylight. The images can be very sharp but there are autofocus errors. The macro is very good and sharp. The controls for the flash and the macro focus are very simple and easy to find. Problems: Auto focus errors produce some disappointing shots. The LCD is smaller than most ...

I bought this digital camera last year. This model seems more likely to deliver nice sharper shots than Canon's new iteration series (Ixus 40) when it comes to sensitivity / noise ratio. Night shots captured with this camera are pretty nice, thanks to the long shutter mode. If you plan to buy the Ixus 40, you should consider purple fringing as well : The Ixus S410/430 produces less chromatic aberration than the Ixus 40. No enhanced video recording, but who cares ? If you prefer video, go for ...

I take it everywhere. I do not use this for my primary camera. I bought this camera with the intentions on having it in my bag at all times to catch a shot of things at a seconds notice. Mostly my children. I have taken hundreds of shots so far. Not all of them have turned out as good as they could have but my goal was to capture the moment not an award winning photo. Problems: The lighting conditions need to be just right. Indoor shots are mostly too dark and blurry when the flash is not ...

Excellent so far. I just picked up the S410 and so far I'm impressed with it. Like all (or most) P&S digitals I am not crazy about the shutter lag, but have learned to work around it. The flash kicks out more light than many I've tried in this category. Like all P&S's I wish this had aperature and shutter priority, but alas it doesn't. For ultra serious shooting I go with my 10D. As a take anywhere camera, the S410 fills the bill nicely. Problems: None so far.
