This review is from: Canon PowerShot S5 IS Black 8.0 MP 2.5" 207K LCD 12X Optical Zoom Digital Camera
This is an Excellent camera, especially for the price! It can be used as anything from a simple point-and-shoot (in AUTO mode) to darn near a full-featured SLR (in MANUAL mode) and everything in between, without the price or bulk of a full SLR rig.
Takes excellent photos; has enough options that you can do virtually anything you want right there on the camera, and the menus are quite easy to navigate once . The body looks and feels very durable; hand grip is large enough to feel well-supported with one hand.
My friend was so impressed with his first experience with it that he went out and bought one for himself!
My only "complaint" is that the lens cap comes off too easily, but that is a designed feature so the lens does not try to extend in to it (the lens makes it pop off when you turn the camera on)
Just as good as an SLR for all but the most experienced photographers; Canon is a great, reliable brand
