I must say that the camera is bought with the purpose to capture a beloved child. I consulted with a familiar photographer, he recommended this brand and even this model. Wanted to have a good camera with a friendly interface and, of course, high-quality images. All I got in full. I machine very satisfied, he did great even with the night shot! And even the video does not disappoint – excellent shoots! Plus a very convenient ability to shoot video from any mode to switch to video by pressing a single button. From pleasant things – there is a face detection function, eliminating the effect of “red eye”. LCD screen can rotate in any direction, and the photo print it is possible to send a single click, even without using a computer. Though the camera is heavy and not in any lady’s handbag will come in, it’s all kompensiruet great shots, and this is important!

Advantages:22 shooting mode, compact digital camera., the face detection function

To shoot close enough to a decent camera, when shooting at ISO 200. When you try to use the optical zoom starts tricks in the form of digital noise. In good light it is not very noticeable, but when shooting in the early morning, for example, when a light but the sun hasn’t risen yet… no, Thank you. A little more than 2 years of broken wires going to the rotary screen. The warranty period is stretched out and died. This despite the fact that mainly use the viewfinder and the screen is always closed. All, nothing like no longer buy. So many dead frames, on this soapbox, even insulting. Very slow. The cold refuses to focus.

I have to say – I was always convinced canonistas from all the manufacturers Canon it attracted my opinion. However, this camera is on me, frankly, is not satisfied. Yes, the color he typically Kanarovska, however, and ease of use, the presence of the turning screen, nice appearance and so on. But for me, it seemed not working at the noise above 100 ISO. Of course, the noise it is possible to remove in Photoshop, but there will be enough power, and desire to Potter with each picture in the editor? What I liked about this model is the macro mode. Since I am a fan of this genre, it is very important to me that this feature in the camera. Canon PowerShot S5 IS macro copes with very well – quickly and confidently focuses on small distance and nice background blurs.Overall, I can say that the machine is good for a beginner in photography who needs something more than a mobile phone but does not have needs in professional photography.

Bought it back in 2009 for 2000 hryvnia. Use for the sixth year, in General happy with the purchase.Price=quality shots.Advantages – rotary screen, zoom, good quality video with stereo sound, zooming in well kills background.Great macro, lots of possible settings to get beautiful photos.Among the shortcomings can be noted that rapidly eats batteries, always carry a spare with you.And when recording video, what noise, I don’t know how to clean it up, maybe it is the sound of autofocus, here you can watch, recording this camera, YouTube kind of ruin the video quality, so bear this in mind:With enough light the photo is great, but the dusk is already popping noises.If you adapt to it and choose the right angle and lighting of the photos obtained with a professional camera.Recommend.Here’s some photos that I took:


Halva made from Sesame seeds

The sweetness of the Plum Without Sugar! Not Boiled!

The sweetness of Apples and Apricots

Two methods of Harvesting and Fermented Ivan-Tea. 5, 2015 the Mountains of TRANS-ili Alatau


Advantages:zoom, compact digital camera., rotary display, swivel screen, face detection

I got this camera from mom, who bought it 10 years ago. I thought that it will not be good quality, because non-mirrored and quite old model, and how wrong I was!With proper settings, it produces great photos. Macro-level, although it is not a model for the macro. Minus the shooting: do not pull photos in the dark and under artificial lighting. Photo with flash not too much. The movement also does not make clear photos, even in “sport” mode. About the battery also has disadvantages. I think that they need to be purchased separately. It’s not cheap, you have to carry a charger, batteries, heavy +there is a memory effect. For such a nonmirrored unit from copes. With the right settings suitable for portraits, landscapes, or just macro. Not suitable for shooting in the dark events in motion. Video not tried.In General, what else to add? In the photo you can see everything.Definitely recommend for Amateur photography is great.
