"Sensitive to low light - caution."3.5 starson by vidcameraman
Pros: The HD video option is 720 - impressive in the sunlight. Auto mode is very quick and intelligent. This is a great camera for Mom and Dad.
Cons: This is a point and shoot camera. Low light pictures, forget about it. You may want to upgrade. The flash is not powerful enough. Indoors i.e. low light the HD becomes grainy and looses sharpness. Most importantly: This camera saves video in .MOV format.
Summary: This purchase is a huge disappointment for video in low light. Also, editing these files with windows movie maker is not an option. Why would Canon change a good thing? It was only $103.00. Overall pictures are great in the bright light, this is usually when Mom and Dad are awake. This is not a camera for taking pictures at an evening concert. You will need to purchase the optional flash offered by Canon.
