Only 6 years but pretty good. I suppose an advantage is it is 6mp so it will have higher real resolution and low light performance than many modern compacts even though it has not got an X in the name. It got rave reviews when it came out.

Hope it lasts many more years.

On the compact forum I doubt if there is much experience of anything lasting 10 years. This would apply to any brand I would think.

I will now be swamped by people using ancient Canon compacts from the beginning of time (or most probably ignored which is OK).

Here comes the first wave My compacts (fewer moving parts?) give me less trouble than my DSLRs/lenses. I'm still using my S3is almost every day, same as the day I bought it.
