Great lower-light camera. I used this camera a lot set on ASA400, and it was very sensitive, even the DPReview says it is more like ASA800. I upgraded to an S70 a little while ago, and sometimes I miss this camera. The new S70 is excellent at ASA50, but comparing the higher speeds, the S45 wins by a long shot with lower noise and higher sensitivity. Taking pictures of kids and people and want avoid using the flash? this is a great camera for that. Great camera, I loved it. Problems: The ...

Great quality pictures every time. Compared with my first camera a 3MP Fuji A303, another camera I've tried (cheaper Sanyo 4MP) and my sister's film SLR, the S45 has easily the best photos. Nice clean, smooth photos with good colour and low noise. The A303 has lots more noise & the Sanyo looks really solarised when you zoom in - as though it's sharpened the hell out of the pictures, they look like oil painings close up. Not so the S45. It's also built like a tank - I (or my 1 1/2 year old ...

Great camera that has everything you wish for! Perfect for point and shoot, but you can also do some serious composing due to all the manual settings. I got mine in January 2003. Problems: I would have given it a 5 in "Construction" if it wasn't for the lens cover and plastic LCD screen. - Sliding lens cover seems cheap and makes it slow to shut down. First you have to close it halfway, wait for the lens to close, and then close the cover. - Battery drains fast, especially if it's cold. Buy ...

Canon PS S45 is my first digital camera, and I chose it over other more recent and more compact models because it promised to offer more features for me to learn to operate. It provides more options for me to consider and try. And it did a great job; I have been using it for over 7 months, and I am quite sure that I made a right choice. It performs well and mostly satisfies my needs. When I bought it, it's ready to be phased out. So it's a great value. A wonderful digital camera for ...

It takes a licking and keeps on clicking! From European landmarks, to stunning close-ups of wildflowers, to night shots of wild fires, my S45 has exceeded my expectations. I've had my S45 for a year and a half and it's proved to be an incredibly durable camera. I go hiking and mountain biking on rough, dusty trails in 100 deg. summer heat numerous times a week and my S45 still works perfectly. It also survived a four week tour of Europe during last summer's heat wave and produced pictures ...

Big dissapointment (E18 error). Not recommended, unless you have money to throw away. I considered Canon for the name and based on good references. Overall it was a good camera: easy to use and pretty decent pictures. The cruel reality is that the defect in the optical system (E18 error) makes camera inoperable (see problems) Problems: E 18 error!!! This engineering problem of Canon turns the camera into a disposable camera after the warranty expires. Mine broke 4 weeks after I bought it. ...

I am very amazed with the people at Canon. Something happened to my S45 camera when my kids used it and it stopped working. I ran through the check lists from the support dept at Canon, nothing worked. I decided to send it in since it still had one month warranty left. I thought they wouldn't accept it since I had tinkered with it. I sent it off on Wed and got it back across country in just over 1 week! It works great! What a wonderful repair department they have. I will buy Canon now all the ...
