this camera was bought for me as a present, and initially i was very happy with the product. It's won the Which? Best Buy Camera of the Year award 2007. At 7.1MP it's high quality with a small size. NB. No IS with this camera so any shakes with flash off and pics will be a blur. Anything above...

“Fantastic Little Camera”

published 19/02/2009

ProCheap, cute, tiny, great pictures

ConsNight mode isn't fantastic

I am very bad at upgrading to new technology. I rarely buy something new until the old one is completely dead and buried, and so when my poor old camera finally passed away I wasn't looking forward to getting a new camera - especially considering I had no idea what half the specifications listed...

This has been one of the best small compact digital cameras I have owned to date.

I love this camera. We had previously purchased a Canon Powershot SD400 and needed a second camera. We tried to purchase the same one, as we had liked it so much, but they had updated it. This camera was the updated version. Mine looks a bit different from the picture (I have a total silver front...

This camera is all you need if you are an amateur and need a compact camera that give you nice photos to a very nice price. When you start the camera you get an annoying sound byte but that is somewhat forgotten when you realize that it is a very fast starter. So this is good if you get some...

“Britain's best camera!”

ProSmall, light, great value!!

ConsNone!

Without a doubt this is the best camera of all time. Producing excellent quality photos and only costing around £100, I will never need another digital camera. It is small enough to take on a night out (in a pocket or handbag), but is robust enough to take a few knocks! It takes an SD card which...
