I am a professional Photographer and I am strictly a Canon person and thought I would get my Fiance' a lil camera to put in her purse and have to snap some photos so I would not have to lug around all my crap and this was a great purchase as it takes great photos and it is very small and compact and was very affordable.
This little camera takes great pictures. It fits nicely into a purse or pocket, lightweight. Downloaded pictures turned out well. Clear pictures , good color easy to use. I bought it for my granddaughter who is seven. Mom uses it too. But I love the pictures I get which includes a story. A good starter piece of equipment or for a traveler .
I like this little camera. It is small enough to carry easily, and simple enough for my mechanically-challenged mother to use. I really like it and would recommend it to others. It has limited zoom, but it is okay for quick snap shots. I like the color as well.
It's been a really long time since Iv'e owned a brand new camara, especially with the way advances in everything we see in the world today. The last camera that I owned was a 35 mm from Minolta. Boy, how things have changed. I don't think I ever was really happy with it. Not to mention you just about need a degree in photography to work it. My daughter bought a Canon Power Shot A4000 IS and she likes it better than any camera she has owned and also receives better service when needed and in a timely manner. Her recommendation convinced me along with the camera features and price and the rest is history.
This camera has several features that I was looking for in a compact digital. For one it is 16mp, most of the larger digital cameras are only about 12 mega pixels. It is very lightweight and being compact fits easily into pockets. The one thing I wish could be changed is the color. The red is easy to spot but I would have preferred it in silver or black.
Bought the red Cannon Sure Shot for 69% off but having not had a digital camera before it came without any instructions or downloand attachment or memory card which I didn't expect. After purchasing all of the above I am still trying to learn how to use it properly. It's small, thin, red and perfect for my purposes if I can figure it out!! Great value tho.
