This review is from: Canon PowerShot A650 IS Black&Silver 12.1 MP 6X Optical Zoom Digital Camera
Great camera. I had smaller cameras that did not capture the shots I was looking for. This one seemed to "get it right"
I also like the video quality
Avoid digital zoom (But this is true for ALL cameras) Just use the Optical zoom and you will be fine.
This model does not recover from water damage well. No fault to Canon but other digital cameras have dried out and worked after submersion. This one did not. (I had a kayak mishap and this one was submerged for quite a while before I got the batteries out)
Too bad I only had it for less than two months before ruining it. It gave me some great pics
