Brought the camera the first year they came out and still have it by mid 2014 and still get some cracking photos as with all cameras there are good points and bad points but i don't think the canon 6D which i in the process of buying will be with me for that long

I've been using this camera since it was released, and was lucky enough to be able to buy a second one in mint condition for £100.00 ! I love this camera, fantastic lens, superb macro facility. Highly recommended by me ! Problems: No Problems at all.

Just thought I'd say that I'm still looking for the Pro 2? What's up Canon! I still love this camera. I haven't found anything compelling enough, to replace it yet. My pictures are superb! I have taken this little camera with me many places and it just keeps working; even thou I still get nervous on how fragile the camera seems. Got some of the best shots I've ever taken with any camera I've owned. Mostly film cameras. SLR's. I like traveling light and don't want another slr with many lenses. ...

In the world of P&S cameras I think the Pro1 is the best one in IQ and features. It have a 28mm lense that is amaizing. The macro mode is superb and the camera alows filters Problems: It´s slow No IS And vinettering at f/ open

I have been using this model for two years. I think it is the very good starting point to learn photography. It gives you a feeling that you touch a SLR camera. L type lens is superb. Problems: Focusing is a little bit slow, so i have had problems while taking photograps of moving objects (ex. children). And, if you increase the ISO sensitivity to 200 (or higher) you get very high noise level which is not acceptable even for the average users.

I am a Pro1 fan. Although the camera is not for sale anymore it is possible to buy a second hand camera on the internet. A very few new ones are still for sale on E-bay for 1299 $. I have not found any camera yet that beats the Pro1 as a non SLR camera. I tell that some of the best things on the Pro1 is the 28mm wide angle, the "L" lens and RAW format. 95% of other non-SLR cameras are with 35-39mm wide angle. That is a big difference when comparing pixels and in favor for the Pro1. I have ...

SUPER Lil Camera!! This P&S Camera is by no means a slouch. Don't let it's age fool you....it rivals/or better than most P&S cameras of today and many DSLR's. Great to have if you want a powerful featured P&S for Travel or backup. Pros: Magnisium body construction!! Fast Canon L lens f2.4-3.5 (28mm-200mm 35mm equiv) Loaded with real nice effect settings/features. Does some VERY impressive Macro shots esp in Super Macro mode. (Focus distance from 1.2in) Big LCD for reviewing shots zooming ...

I have this camera for more then a year now. So far, I believe, this is the best pro-sumer camera ever released. I was able to take great quality shots without much of an effort. Overall, I love flippable screen, features and amazing convenience and reliability of this camera. Problems: 1. No image stabilization 2. Any ISO settings over 100 is not really useful, however camera is very much capable of taking decent pictures at low light even at ISO 100. Just use tripod and have manual ...
