Pros compact, great picture quality, zoom is very good, lots of options
Cons a bit heavy, uses compactflash cards, only 2mp, display is small, video clips are too short
Summary I bought this camera many years ago, it was top of the line. It took superb photos then and it still does now. It has been showing its age, it is quite chunky and heavy, yet it still manages to be quite compact. For 2 megapixels, the photos look pretty darn good even compared to today's cameras with megapixels everywhere. For something that's so old, it still functions as well as the day I bought it and does its job very well.
Pros small size, ease of use
Cons has trouble focusing, small resolution, its over 3 yrs old
Summary ive used this camera for the past 3 years and its still going strong. it was the smallest camera on the market when i got it but has been far surpassed in the last couple of year. ive had no mechanical failures, but the auto focus is not especially great. it is 2 megapixels which is completely old skool but it is quite basic to use. it is slower compared to newer cameras and lacks features, resolution, etc. but i dont use it for much more than that anyways although i wish some of the picture were sharper. in some of the more challenging lighting conditions, it does fail to produce a clear picture. Bottom line: its good, but its old
Pros Small size, great flash, excellent battery life, easy to use
Cons Plastic battery door, and 3x zoom
Summary My wife and I have had this camera for 3 years now. It accompanies us almost everywhere we go. If we are doing anything fun this little gem always goes with us. I have a nice new 5 megapixel Sony camera, but this little camera is usually my go to camera over the nicer Sony. The biggest reason we use this over the higher resolution camera is the quality of indoor pics is exceptional. We are in our 20s and still like to go out to the club for dancing or sports bar to watch some football. This camera takes great pictures even in total darkness. For what we paid for this camera $210 I believe it was worth every penny. We have taken 14,173 pictures since we bought this camera back in 2002. If you are thinking about buying a used one on Ebay or from a friend, don’t hesitate to purchase this Canon.
Pros small, convenient, versatile, a must have!
Cons battery power lasts not too long, a must is an extra battery. You can find a great cheap one on ebay.
Pros Great photo quality, easy to use, light, small and portable. Great for traveling. Only Canon S400 is better b/c of 4MP.
Cons Only 2MP but who cares? Most people shoot at 2-3MP anyway.
