Uma excelente camera, seu zoom ótico com ampliação de 5x é um diferencial entre equipamentos na mesma faixa de preço. Problems: Infelizmente a minha apresentou, sem qualquer motivo válido, um defeito no display, que não afeta o funcionamento da camera, mas me atrapalha a visualização dos comandos e da própria imagem.

I have had the camera for about a year and it has proven to be a great buy. Still haven't explored all the features but I will experiment more with it.

While in the "Auto" few ...

I was planning to buy a Canon A720IS but then I saw the S85 for 99€ and bought it, to some extend the camera fealls light and cheap but when taking pictures I wondered how nice the result was. Some nice features: - Super macro - 5x Zoom - 4 Gb SDHC card - Good Video - Nightshot but you need a steady hold For sure you get a lot of goodies and natural pictures for low price! Problems: The only issue is the battery; you need real good rechargeable batteries and a good charging kit. ASR Image ...
