Good value

 

I decided to buy another Canon camera because they treated me well on a previous camera of theirs. After three years said camera started having CCD problems and took bad pictures. I sent it into them for warranty repair and they fixed that plus another...

Limited Uses

 

This unit serves only in well lit situations and will fit in a pocket, as long as it is large and deep enough, making it convenient in certain situations. In low or moderate light levels this unit functions very poorly, with output largely unacceptable...
