I have had this camera for 2 months now and love it. I have also purchased the underwater housing and taken over 500 UW shots with it. It does have a marine mode especially designed for UW photography which is nice. Unlike many others on this forum, i rate the image quality good. Problems: My only negative comments would be a lack of infrared lamp assist and slow recharging time between flashes. I guess you can't have everything. LOL

Sold the S4i and got a SD300/IXUS40 Canon which is the same size with so-much better photos and stunning video. S4i was Good= Very Compact, Easy Use, Good Ergonomics, Great Menu, Charge Cradle is Perfect!! You cant take the photo if you are not carrying the camera and the S4i is my "always carry" camera. Most image problems can be fixed with manipulation on PC. Just pretend it is a small 2mPix camera and you will be happy with it. Also Own Nikon3700 (Great Video but Crap Menus - gave it to my ...

Don't get this camera if you are interested in high quality images and decent indoor performance. Buy it if you will only ever take outdoor pics, will never print anything larger than 4 x 6", and want a small lightweight camera. Hmmm... how realistic are the caveats for your average user? Hardly I think is the answer. I happen to own the Canon S410 as well and bought it around the same time as the Optio. As an owner of both, I can claim to have the highest authority in comparing the 2. If ...

i bought this camera for its size and weight. it's the same size as a pack of cigs, and packs a powerful 3x zoom. @ $311 shippped, it was also a steal. the menus are easy to navigate, and features are bountiful. the camera has very little startup and recording lag. pictures record quickly to the SD card. however, image quality, even at highest resolution and lowest compression, leaves much to be desired. pictures in low light are especially poor. my s110 cannon (3 year old, 2MP) took much ...

Ultra-compact digicam comparison: which ultra-compact camera should I buy? Make sure you read the whole thing – it’ll give you an idea of what to look for yourself. Considered: Fuji F610, Sony T1, Sony T11, Sony P100, Pentax Optio S4i, Canon S500, Nikon 3700/5200. Fuji 610 (72 x 93 x 31 mm) Pros: excellent camera with awesome image quality. Claim that vertical design will limit camera shake – maybe. Video quality excellent at 640 x 480 (30fps). xD picture cards cheap. Cons: Larger than canon ...
