Great camera for the price!
on November 17, 2010
I bought this camera to replace a really old 3 MP Powershot that finally died. The settings are very intuitive - it's much easier now to change from "Kids and Pets" to "Outdoor", for instance. I love that the settings are all on a dial!
I don't notice much shutter lag with this camera, either. My old camera needed 7 seconds between shots (I told you it was really old!)...while this isn't as fast as a SLR camera, it's still faster than I expected it to be.
I haven't done intensive study of the manual yet, so bear that in mind when I say that the action shots are still a little fuzzy. I'm trying to catch a four-year-old, though! If anyone has any tips on tweaking the "Kids and Pets" setting for that, please let me know.
In all, I'm very pleased with this camera. It's a fair price for what amounts to an entry-level point-and-shoot, it's really easy to use (my four-year-old even uses it!), and I would recommend it pretty highly.
The only slight drawback that would make me give it 4.5 stars instead of 5 is the fuzzy action shots...but as I stated, I haven't investigated the issue much. So it gets rounded up to a 5.
