For years I was an avowed 35mm SLR fan. I still am to an extent. For that reason, I refused to buy a digital camera until I could get at least 4 megapixels’ resolution and good image quality. Finally, about two years ago, I bought a little Konica KD410Z compact digital camera. It’s a very good...

History I have been a keen photographer for a number of years and have a full range of cameras, from the instant camera to the SLR. Until last year 2003 I was sold on the SLR and would not consider a digital as they did not offer me the same quality and control and the SLR. Then along came a...

As a 35mm user with a great deal of kit for my Canon SLRs, I would have liked to buy a digital SLR, but couldn't easily afford one at the time (I had a long trip coming up, and really wanted a digital camera to take with me). Looking at the various reviews of new cameras, I was interested in the...

As an ex professional photographer I wanted a digital camera that gave me many of the benefits I use with my everyday 35mm and Medium format gear, but without the hassle of lugging a large amount of equipment around. I looked therefore at the Nikon Coolpix 5400 and the Canon Powershot Pro 1, both...

“Powerful, Sleek Camera”

published 29/09/2005

excellent image quality, zoom lens, and video mode

bulky, complicated

I adore this camera. I use it professionally for flyers, banner ads, and web site photos for my small business, and I am always pleased with the quality of print image that results. The video feature is good fun at dinner parties to catch candid action. The quality and sound are excellent when...

I have owned the PowerShot Pro for close to a year now. It still surprises me what great photos it takes. We shoot a great number of product photos for our website and it makes them look the items look better than real life. The flash unit is easy to use and good quality. We also use the camera...

This is the second camera I bought after using Powershot S1 IS. What a big difference it was ... I mean ... BIG. In a positive way of course. The Pro 1 has to be the best prosumer camera out there.

Wide range of feature;Good battery life

Expensive;

why cant i take a picture in daylight
Open question Answer

Answer

This really shouldn't be a problem; can you take a picture in the dark? Or is the picture too bright/white? If so, it's probably in the wrong mode, and it's being overexposed. It would help if you can tell me what mode you're shooting in, as I have used several canon cameras before.
