    Pros: About the size of an ordinary business card.
    Cons: Fixed focus and zoom (from whatever is selected on the first frame) in movie mode.

    Summary: I like my camera very much , but I was unsure of it at first. When compared to my Canon S330 - a 2MP camera, the pictures appeared to lack detail-sharpness and have a softness to them. Color was also toned down it was less vivid. After much ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Small, light, hard to take surprisingly bad pictures
    Cons: Not long battery life. Somewhat less pixels (3.2M)

    Cons: Can't think of any cons at all.

    Summary: We were extremely happy with the camera--so much so that our younger daughter bought one. After three years of very hard use the focus stopped working (the day of my son's wedding, naturally). Later my wife called Canon. They sent a prepaid mailer and ... read more

    Cons: Like most digital cameras, the lcd screen is very fragile (found out the hard way)
