Comments about Canon PowerShot SD30 Digital Camera, Glamour Gold:
I do not recommend this product, and I hope you do not decide to purchase this one. It was the first camera I purchased, I didn't know much at all about cameras.. and now I just can not wait to get rid of it and buy a new camera! Ive taken care of it, but it still broke. [...] not worth the [$] I spent. Ah.
