Absolutely. I love this camera, it's small and compact enough to take anywhere. The photo quality is better than any other point and shoot I've used in the past. It's much more convenient than lugging around a DSLR, and the picture quality is great. :)
definitely and, if you are okay with keeping it in auto mode (as the rear dial spins freely and changes settings in other modes), you could get the older S90 to save some money. i've had both, and they are both great cameras. these cameras are better in low light than other compact cameras and the colors and picture quality stand out compared to pictures from other compact cameras i've used.
