Comments about Canon Powershot SX100 IS Digital Camera (Black):

Well having used the SLR's with film this was the first digital camera I bought. Although I personally do not like digital cameras, I read several revies and finalized this particular one.

It let me down by miles, althoug I agree with the other reviewers that it is a value for money camera and probably you won't get any better for thsi price. Still it left a lot to be asked for.

The LCD let me down while trying to shoot with sun right behind my shoulder. Unable to capture waves during sunset in a windy condition.

Overall the camera lacks the speed and agility I expected from a digital camera and was a big let down.

Comments about Canon Powershot SX100 IS Digital Camera (Black):

I take alot of indoor pictures of my 2 fast moving boys. As a causual camera user, I was able to capture some good action shots, only after reading the user guide and experimenting with the various camera settings. (In auto mode many of the pictures were blurry.) This camera is light weight and small enough to fit in my purse.
I found the video quality to be very good for both picture and sound. You can zoom while in video mode. I do wish that the camera's video mode was easier to access, i.e. seperate button.

Comments about Canon Powershot SX100 IS Digital Camera (Black):

This is a great all purpose camera. I have taken a few hundred pics and they all came out clear no blur. I have been looking for a replacement for my G3 for some time. Wanted a bigger zoom, higher pixel and a size that felt comfortable but would fit in my purse. I work in sales and think Canon should hire me to sell this camera. I bought my camera at Ritz and they were very helpful with any questions I had about the camera.

SX100 - not quite the hype

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Comments about Canon Powershot SX100 IS Digital Camera (Black):

Though the Camera is a good camera...afterall it's a Canon. It lacks in some of the features that the A500 - Series has. First, the flash isn't as 'Automatic' as you have to lift the flash bulb to use it. Also the A500 series has a true 'View Finder' & an LCD screen. The sx100 does not have that feature. I take alot of photos outside, and it's difficult to see the LCD screen in sunlight...so it's difficult to tell what 'exactly' I'm taking a picture of.

Comments about Canon Powershot SX100 IS Digital Camera (Black):

Upgraded from a canon Powershot A540. This camera is amazing. With its face detection technology and DIGIC III image processor, it creates amazing photos. It has a scroll wheel that makes it easy to navigate thru the menus. It performs well in low light thanks to the Image Stabilizer. A great point and shoot camera for capturing those great family memories without breaking the bank.
