... I used a friends Canon after my terrible HP couldn't cut it anymore and I was very impressed. The picture quality was far superior even though it had less pixels! I decided to go for a decent camera and the S30 was pretty much top of the range at that time. 3.2 MP is enough to blow fairly ... Read review

Fantastic, but not for the beginner!

AdvantagesRange of features, capability, reliability

DisadvantagesPoor battery life, expensive extras

"...good shots. I used a friends Canon after my terrible HP couldn't cut it anymore and I was very impressed. The picture quality was far superior even though it had less pixels! I decided to go for a decent camera and the S30 was pretty much top of the range at that time. 3.2 MP is enough to blow fairly large prints up, something I had in mind, and far more than most people need. It has a 3x optical zoom which means you can maginify the image 3 ..." Read review

Great pictures

AdvantagesGreat pictures

Disadvantagesno 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 the S30 has a shorter AVI movie capture time [S30 captures 30 sec. AVI clips] compared to the S40. I bought my S30 in May 2002 and had no problems with ..." Read review

Long-term use of Canon S30

AdvantagesManual features, sturdy, excellent pictures

DisadvantagesUmm...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 to it and feels sturdy, it has stood up to some fairly rough treatment over the year or so that I have had it (including some small drops at times). I was ..."

Very robust camera

Advantagescompact, robust, lots of features

Disadvantagesrelatively heavy

"Brough this camera in 2003 for the followings: 3.2Mpixel (average spec) and 3X optical zoom at a very reasonable price - £280. Capability to use IBM microdrive (type II media card) which is cheaper than compact flash card with similar capacity at that time. Capable of shooting movies - as a low res camcorder. Macro mode for close range shooting. ISO 800 - shooting nearly in the dark without the flash. Poto-stitch software to stitch panorama ..." Read review

Fantastic

AdvantagesBuilt in camcorder facility (30secs)

DisadvantagesLittle heavy

"The Canon Powershot S30! Well what can I say? This camera is fantastic! It is very versatile. It has many fantastic options including black and white pictures, Utopia, 30 second camcorder facility, multiple flashes, Fantastic! It takes absolutely brilliant resolution pictures. The great thing is that the 128Mb card can hold approx 200 pictures depending which resolution you have it set to. It really does take great snaps, the picture is displayed ..." Read review

Product Information for "Canon PowerShot S30" »

Manufacturer's product description

The PowerShot S30 is a sophisticated collaboration of modern design and state-of-the-art digital technology that delivers astonishing resolution and brilliance. PowerShot S30 boasts a powerful 3.2-megapixel CCD. So what does this mean in practical terms? The camera creates postcard-size images so densely detailed that the pixels are invisible to the human eye. Now you can enjoy all the exciting options digital technology gives you, and get rich, radiant, film-like image quality. From close-up snaps to panoramic vistas, the S30's speedy, responsive zoom is right there to make your vision happen. A built-in digital teleconverter takes the 3x optical zoom lens (equivalent to 35 to 105mm in a 35mm camera) smoothly all the way up to 10x. Legendary Canon optics ensures a clear, brilliant shot every time. Fun capabilities like movie mode and Voice Memo make the PowerShot S30 portable entertainment. The S30 is fully compatible with Canon's Direct Print System - just connect a cable from your camera to one of these printers - no computer necessary. Using Direct Print mode on the S30 digital camera, you can easily crop and resize images, even add the date if you choose. Make your PowerShot S30 all your own by choosing the look of the start-up screen and the sounds it makes for start-up, shutter, self-timer and more with the new My Camera function.
