"The Best Digital Compact Camera to Date"4.5 starson by daz3dpanda
Pros: Terrific Image Quality, 2.5" LCD Screen, Compact
Cons: No Raw, Flimsy Digital out Cover, Optical View Snugged
Summary: I have been doing some research for the past couple months on which digital camera to buy. I’m just an 18yr old student with limited budget but this camera seemed to be a Must Buy, and it was. The image quality is extraordinary compared to other compact digital cameras. My main focus was trying to find a camera that would capture the truest colors and best images in low lighting situations. While other cameras ex. Casio, Kodak, etc also had great quality in outdoors, they were incomparable to the Powershot SD series indoors.
There are some Negative qualities about this camera though. In the past the SD400 had many problems with the LCD cracking. about 30% of all the buyers had this problem. I read about it many times, but this next generation; the SD450. Canon claims to have reinforced the screen, but just to be on the safe side I bought TAP warranty along with the camera.
What I can't seem to ignore is the flimsy flap that covers the AA/OUT Digital outlet. Even though I just purchased a 1Gig SD card so I would not have to upload often, it still feels so feeble. It is a small plastic joint which you have to bend at first to unlatch it. At times it feels like it's going to snap off at any moment. I’m very confused why canon would use something so cheaply.
