Very good product for home users. I bought the red one last month. The design is slim , cool, very light and portable( it weighs only 116G!). The quality of pictures is very good, can be printed directly, you don't need to photoshop the photos at all. It saves me a lot of time on using the photoshop software( I am a business seller on ebay, therefore I need to handle a lot of product photos every day) The LCD dispaly is big and clear, can disply pictures very well for checking.
Over 6 scene modes to be chosen, esay to use, I found the DC is good at shooting portrait(having the Face-priority AF) and scenery especially. It also has the winking & smile-face recognition function, will remind you if some one had been winked when shooting, very cute!
Disadvantage: don't show the power level of battery on LCD display, you will not know how much power left until the last moment when encounting the tip"the battery power has been exhausted" suddenly.
Overall, a very good product at a very reasonable price, I like it.
this is a pretty handy little camera, very nice for the price. it is easy to use, even if you don't read the manual. (though reading it through once did help.) a lot of it you can figure out by pressing the menu button.
i like that it can slip into a shirt of jeans pocket, and it takes pretty good pictures for such a little thing. it was very handy to take on my last cruise and have at the ready all the time.
if your digital camera is more than a few years old, you can get more bang for your buck with what's available now. more megapixels, more zoom. more features, handy smaller size. holds its charge for a long time, nice slim battery. it's not a pro camera, but you wouldn't want to carry a bigger camera with you all the time.
This is my 2nd S3000, as I use them in my business. For the money, this camera is excellent. The features are good and the main feature I need is the ability to date stamp photos. Many cameras do not have this feature. I also use the video quite often, and it works very well. The size, picture quality and ease of use is very good. I have bought other cameras and always gone back to this one. This camera isn't available at Best Buy anymore, and I don't know about other stores. I take on average 400 pictures a day and download them at night. This camera has handled it with no problem. I have also been pretty hard on the camera and it hasn't broken or had any issues. I recommend this camera to anyone who is on the go, taking a bunch of pictures and needs to quickly download. I have used many other brands and styles and this is the one I go back to.
