Pros: Small form factor makes it good for portable applications and is the reason I bought this one. The 3" USB cord is great for swapping out cards on USB ports that are somewhat difficult to access (such as on the back of a laptop).
Cons: When I plugged it in to my laptop dock, the computer said that there was a "power surge" on the USB port, and the computer would promptly shut the port off, rendering it useless until I rebooted the computer.
After researching the issue, it appears this is not a rare problem with the product. The windows patch I found to fix the issue did not work, and ended up making some of my other USB devices (specifically, my mp3 player) not work.
Other Thoughts: I ended up buying another product with a thumb-drive form factor from Newegg, and I am very happy with that one.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Canon PowerShot S5 IS Black 8.0 MP 2.5" 207K LCD 12X Optical Zoom Digital Camera
Pros: 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!
Cons: 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)
Other Thoughts: Just as good as an SLR for all but the most experienced photographers; Canon is a great, reliable brandREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Compact, straightforward to use. Feels robust enough that I can throw it in a bag or my pocket without worrying about damaging it. SD card seats well.
Cons: Having trouble when I plug it in to the USB port: computer says that there is a "power surge" on the port and that I need to reset the port. It will do this a few times before actually working. Once I get it to "take," however, it works fine.READ FULL REVIEW
