"My canon"

This is a truly brilliant product with a 7.1 mega pixel resolution which therefore makes for brilliant quality photographs. It also has an automatic viewfinder meaning that it focuses itself and then makes a noise once it is focused. It has three modes, a Play mode where you can watch any videos you have recorded etc, a Video mode so that you can shoot videos and a camera mode for when you want to take still photos. One downfall is that the memory card that comes with the camera doesn't hold many pictures meaning that you may want to buy a memory card seperately. A great feature of the camera that is good for myself is that you can automatically remove red eye from your photos. It does not come with any sort of case which therefore means if you are not careful you could easly scratch your camera, The zoom is brilliant and extremely easy to use.

Lovely stylish design which would look good in anyones hand and it comes in a number of colours so it is suitable for anyone. If you brought this camera i can say it is definately a camera and a video camera in one meaning you only need the one product for both functions. I would definately recommend to any potential buyers.
