Excellent

I used a friends Canon after my terrible HP couldn't cut it anymore and I was very impressed. The...

“Great pictures”

published 13/05/2003

ProGreat pictures

Consno carry case as STD.

The first thing that strikes you about the S30 & S40 cameras is the finish. The camera's case is metal, finished in a brushed alloy effect and button lay out is good. The S30 and S40 are identical except for 2 details, the S30 is a 3.2M pixel camera and the S40 is a 4.0M pixel camera. Secondly...

“Long-term use of Canon S30”

published 11/03/2004

ProManual features, sturdy, excellent pictures

ConsUmm...too big?

I thought I'd write a review of this camera from the point of view of a long-term assessment of its performance (rather than most out of the box type things). I have to say that I love my camera, and ever since I bought have not used either of my 35mm cameras. The S30 has a lovely polished look...

“Amazing camera for the size”

published 01/12/2005

ProThe Feature Set

ConsThe multifunction button

This camera is the benchmark for all other amateur/semi pro cameras. The build quality is superb. I dropped mine from a reasonable height and not a dint (don't try that at home). The first thing that catches your eye is the feature set. It's got every mode you could wish for from point and shoot...

ProPowerful, light, many features

ConsPrice is Too High

I think that This camera has the best features that there is to offer, however the price is hugh. IF you have the money, I highly recomend getting this camera. It is one, if not the best on the market today. If this camera could be cheaper, I would be much happier. The camera functions are the...
