Lovely camera for filming. Thanks to a good design, very convenient and easy to use. The supplied software CD allows you to not only view photos and videos on your computer,but also edit them. In addition, the camera can be attached to the photo printer, pass computer, which is also very convenient and practical. The positive aspect is that the camera performs a picture with sound.In addition, you can set the time and photographed the whole family. Thanks to the multiple modes that you can choose, good quality photos. Panoramic shot allows you to see the entire object, regardless of size. Ideal for photographing of the child. All suggest.

Advantages:shoots videos, takes pictures

Cameras that’s it!Affordable and makes high-quality images.Very comfortable.Like features such as:a bright flash,good zoom(and conveniently zoom in),connects to computer via usb cable without installing all sorts of drivers that makes me very happy,I don’t like extra programs and stuff to install!The photos are high-quality,clear videos.The only things I would like to wish the manufacturers is to include in the package the memory card of gig so 2,and the 512Mb little and don’t need,and throw a pity!Generally convinced that CANON is a quality cameras that are already 3 years and not once he let me down,and friends priobretenie them,don’t complain.

Easy to use, great for the budding photographer, the pixels just a little (pictures if large print – noticeable), and the noise is very noticeable even at small exposures. And I was pleased with in this series of models is the lack of its own battery powered by normal AA batteries, we bought some AA batteries, and at the crucial moment we do not need to look for an outlet to charge, and its battery is still not known, whether will find in the sale a few years when the model will become obsolete and cease its production. And to my computer do not have to connect the camera, simply insert the SD-shku in a card reader. Manual mode allows you to play around with the settings and get fairly good pictures, better than when using the mode “auto”. Zoom used a few times, mostly as binoculars. It is better to make the no zooming and then crop it in any graphics program.

Advantages:a large number of shooting modes, high-quality images, reasonable price, convenient menu

This model of camera use for the past four years. For beginners to practice the art of photography is a great choice. The functions of the camera I have built, which makes it very easy to determine how to make the next shot better or more interesting. Great color. The pictures are bright and clear, both on the street and indoors. For me it is very interesting and easy in this camera to use macro mode. You can take pictures of any tiny flowers. Digital and optical zoom allows you to take a picture of an Apple on the highest branch.Great machine. Suggest to beginners.

Bought this at and not the best experience. The later model is clearly better. Video lousy. If just for photo taking that is fine,but video is better not to even start. In principle, a little more expensive you can take the A560 model. It is better to order at vivatao for a normal price and not steam. At all times camera

Very good camera, I do not regret that bought. I use it for everything. Very comfortable and high quality. Inside plenty of functions and the pictures are just great! Easy to throw the photos onto the computer and edit them there. Very easy to use, easy to understand instructions, all clearly defined and shown in the pictures. There are no glitches. Constantly adequate and well-focusing the image. And most importantly shoots video Warranty camera 5 years. Accessories knemo very cheap and necessary. First of all, I bought a case for it, because without it can not do. I’m happy with my purchase and all also suggest, buy you will not regret!
