This is a neat little camera and at 𧴺 represents decent value.

Image quality seems to be very good under most conditions. Noise is there at high ISOs but stick to 200 and below and its well controlled. Colours are good, sharpness is decent and image stabilisation means shots come out well. Having tried/owned other cameras I think this ones a great allrounder.

So long as you don't ask too mcuh from it then it will deliver.

The best camera for image quality I've owned remains the sony P200 (very smooth top quality shots) but only if you take your time! If I passed it to a friend to take photo's for example some would be unusable! The little canon may not take such fabulous photo's, but all the photo's it takes are still good and very consistent which is probably better if using it for holiday snapshots.

I bought this camera as recommended by the shop guy, mostly as a video recorder. It does capture 640*480 at 60 frames a second, however, I am having difficulties downloading the resulting video to my laptop, at filesizes of 932Mb for 15 minutes video. Smaller ones arounf 250Mb present no issues I can see, and I'm pleased with the results. However, if I can't get the video off the camera, it'll be going back to the shop guy for refund.

Hiyyaa... I am getting this camera in a couple of weeks in pink and after seeing it in the store compared to others, i can admit that it one of the best for its price. Its has optical image stabelisation and face techection technology. It has so much style and is compact so it can fit into any purse or pocket. There are lots of fuctions and it has an easy to navigate menu. Also, it has a 2.5" purecolour LCD screen!

another thing is that IT HAS SUCH GOOD IMAGE QUALITY!!! and that VIDEO IS AMAZING!!!

everything about it is amazing so i dont need to be spercific.
