"Tons of Features"4.5 starson by e_buff
Pros: Many exposure settings, fast auto focus, wide variable lens, comfortable to hold, EVF adjustable, swivel LCD screen, 1 fps continious drive, hot shoe, excellent image stabilizer.
Cons: Narrow aperature settings, (F 8.0 yields limited depth of field), Canon says there are no filter threads for user use, lens cap easy to lose, user manual difficult to understand, confusing icons, .MOV video files (more difficult for Windows users).
Summary: After seeing this camera on display in an electronics store, I knew it was a must have camera, and simply paid retail for mine. I'm more used to the old 35mm film cameras where I could get more creative, but still recommend this camera. I had compared several cameras in store prior to finding this one, and rejected all of them mostly because of the fact that they had blurred view finder images, poor auto focus etc. But this Canon doesn't have any of these troubles. I've shot nearly 1,000 shots with it and it contines to impress me every time. For 99% of us who want something more sophisticated, this is the camera to get! I really enjoy this camera!
