Pros excellent photos in daylight or with flash, easy to use, lots of fun settings, slim and light, inexpensive
Cons can't think of anything!
Would like a better zoom, but for this price, who can complain?
Summary I got this camera (in blue) to supplement my Canon PowerShot XS 10 IS which is too big to lug around every day or to parties. The SD1100IS takes amazing photos, and most importantly, the flash never washes people out. Excellent buy. And it's really pretty in blue!
Pros The camera is small and relatively tough. It is a great choice for pics and movies headed for the web. At under $130 it is a good deal. Recharge time for the rechargeable battery is around 1 1/2 hours - not bad.
Cons Not many manual controls. Battery life is liveable. Not a lot of cons for a camera with tons of features and a somewhat low cost.
Summary The toughness and small size makes this camera (last year's model) a good buy for less than $130 (what I paid). This is a good quality snapshot camera. It is not a camera that comes close to competing with a DSLR, so don't think that a camera like this can come close. However, it is a lot of camera for the $$.
Pros quality of pictures, face detection, self-timer, set up of buttons
Cons depending on which type of picture you set it up for, they can be dicolored. this just requires setting it up right first
Summary Had a Sony CyberShot before this, and man am I glad it broke. This camera takes much better quality pictures, a lot of them look professional. I like that the controls aren't on a dial at the top, that is something that annoys me. Flash is good, had multiple self timers which I use a lot. The only real issue I have had with it is when I insert the memory card into my comp and resize etc. the pics, when I put it back into the camera, those pics I changed have an error message-but thats probably my own fault.
Pros Great pictures, good setting options, LCD is perfect, long battery life, Great size and flash.
Cons None so far
Summary I find that the camera is a "bang for the buck" and this is that time of year when all the new cameras come out, so this was a last chance.
Pros I love almost everything about this ultra compact camera.
Cons Long flash recycle time.
Summary I have not had any bad experiences with this product. I have had many cameras through the years and I have found this camera to be the best! The photo quality is awesome!
