What says about this camera:
1. There are already great reviews out about Canon’s A590is. I’d like to add that I bought this camera just before a 2-week trip to China. Well, it performed like a charm and I couldn’t be more happy with my purchase, especially for such an affordable camera that has so many features. On the second day of my trip I was fumbling with the camera and dropped it from a height of 4 feet onto concrete. My heart was in my throat. Everyone stared. For the remainder of the trip the camera was just fine; not even a crack or scratch. I’m amazed. And because I had almost no time to look through the camera manual before I started taking photos, I’ll add that this camera is very user-friendly and easy to figure out right out of the box. I especially like the image stabilization and video capture features. I was also pleasantly surprised by the long battery life. I took about 700 pictures on one set of batteries. Overall, a great camera.
2. This camera is really nice. I like that you can add external lenses (sold seperately) to the camera. If you are interested in this option, check out the bundle package from 49 St. Photo (sold through Amazon) that includes two lenses and lots of other goodies for only $100 more.
My favorite features of this camera include manual mode (or shutter or aperature priorty), auto rotates pictures, long battery life, great movie quality w/ sound, can turn off digital zoom, has an easy mode, face detection is cool, and you can add an external lens.
Cons to the camera include a little bit bulky, slow recharge time after each picture, and that’s about it. I never write reviews but I felt I needed to for this since I liked it so much.
Canon PowerShot SD770 IS 10MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom
List Price: $229.99
Today’s Price: $159.94
- 10-megapixel CCD captures enough detail for photo-quality poster-size prints
- 3x optical image-stabilized zoom
- Face Detection; Motion Detection Technology automatically reduces blur
- 2.5-inch PureColor LCD II screen for bright, accurate color and wide viewing angle
- Captures images to SD/SDHC, MMC/MMC Plus/HC MMC Plus memory cards (not included)
What says about this camera:
1. Like most people, I did lot of research (online and visits to retailers) before deciding on the Canon SD770is. If you’re considering a quality, compact digital camera, there simply is no better choice than the Canon SD770is – and go with the black color which features a black circle in front, a slightly darker body color, and a black wrist strap instead of the silver strap that comes with the silver version. I considered the SD790is with the 3″ screen, but it’s slightly bigger and heavier and only came in silver. The 770 is the successor to the 750 (one of Canon’s best digital cameras), and adds image stabilization, a better LCD screen, 10 megapixels, and better battery pack. I won’t go into all the specs, because you can read that anywhere online, but the diminutive size makes the 770 very convenient to carry everywhere and the pictures are absolutely great. What more could you ask for? I admit I am biased towards Canon as every year or two I upgrade to another Canon, but they simply make the best digital cameras on the market. Save some time, take advantage of my extensive research, and get yourself the Canon SD770is…and click away.
2. I finally took the plunge and replaced my old digital camera with a modern image-stabilized one. What a difference! Shots that would have been just plain impossible are now easy. For example, I went to the Air and Space museum at Dulles Airport and got great shots of the planes and the space shuttle. At first the shots would not come out with the flash. No problem, I just turned off the flash and, thanks to the image stabilization, was able to take a hand-held shot without blurriness. The only way I could get shot like that with my old camera was to use a tripod. I specifically picked this model over the 790 due to the viewfinder, sometimes it’s just too hard to see an LCD screen in bright sunlight. I have not needed the viewfinder yet but am looking forward to using it. I think it’s worth giving up the half-inch of screen size to have a real viewfinder.
Nikon Coolpix L18 8MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom
- 8.0-megapixel resolution for stunning prints as large as 16 x 20 inches
- 3x optical zoom; Anti-Shake AE mode
- High-resolution 3.0-inch LCD makes it easy to view and share pictures
- In-Camera Red-Eye Fix; enhanced Face-Priority AF automatically focuses on up to 12 faces
- Capture images to SD memory card (not included)
What says about this camera:
1. I have had many digital cameras. At the moment I also own 3 Nikon SLRs, the D40/80/300.
When I am out walking the dog in the desert, the L18 is the camera I usually take. Picture quality is fine, and the really wonderful thing is you can use AA NiMh rechargeable batteries in it. Battery life is good.
For the price this is a great little light weight camera.
2. I recently had the L12, went on vacation and well they don’t take well to getting in swimming pools! So I purchased this one as it’s replacement. I love it even more! Has a lot more features and is very easy to use. It is very compact and the 3″ lcd screen is great. The only think I don’t like is they put the SD card slot in the battery compartment. I like it better with it’s own compartment, I take hundreds of pictures a month and I find it easier to take the card out of the camera and use a card reader on my computer, instead of connecting the camera to the computer.
Over all I recommend this camera to all levels of camera users!

What says about this camera:
1. This camera is impossible to beat at this price. I won’t write a lengthy review, but, you can set this camera in fully automatic mode and hand it to a “point and shoot” person, and they will obtain fantastic results. For the amateur photographer, this has all of the bells and whistles, what I love is I can reset the camera rapidly for multiple shots of the same scene on very different settings. Married with a decent photo program on your computer, it is possible to achieve professional results.
Many reviews say, get this with the stabilization lens…. I wholeheartedly agree… the extra $100 is a bargain price for this lens… It is almost (and I do say almost) like having a tripod. I set the camera for 1/10th second exposures with no support, and obtained steady pictures with it, slower than this, and the stabilization did not fully correct for any unsteadiness.
We’d buy it again in a heartbeat, and I wish I could get one for everyone I know!! Best photos that I have ever taken and a joy to use! Connecting it to the computer and downloading photos takes a matter of seconds.
Get the largest SD card you can afford with it… We have a 2GB card with it, and it fills fairly rapidly. 1GB is far too small for this camera (primarily because you will take numerous shots with it, not because the pics take up a great deal of memory), I’m guessing 4GB would be near perfect (or a couple of 2GB cards, but one 4GB is safer, the cards are too easy to misplace).
2. I’m a professional photographer. I shoot editorials and advertising. I own a couple Canon 1Ds Mark 3. That being said, I wanted a small compact camera to take around with me. I first purchased a Sigma DP-1, but found it limiting and too slow. I sold it and decided to purchase the Canon 450D (XSi). And I am simply amazed at the functionality and speedy feel of the camera. Yes, it’s not as small as a DP-1, but compared to a 1Ds Mark 3, it’s tiny. Every feature of this camera is well thought out and they loaded it with much current technology as possible. I can’t think of a single thing to complain about. I see people complaining about the buffer, but honestly if you NEED high buffer on RAW shooting then take the plunge and buy a 1D or 1Ds.
It’s not a professional grade camera by functionality and build. But the image quality is on par. sRAW on a 1Ds Mark 3 is precisely the same as this camera MP size. I would feel very comfortable with the image quality of this camera to do a editorial shoot (non-sport) with it. But of course, the client always wants to see the big expensive camera, since they’re paying you.
Sony Cybershot DSCW120/B 7.2MP Digital Camera with 4x Optical Zoom

- Carl Zeiss 4x optical zoom lens; Dynamic Range Optimization
- Face Detection; Smart Zoom feature
- HDTV compatibility; HD slide show with music
- 15 MB internal memory; capture images to Memory Stick Duo/Pro Duo media
What says about this camera:
1. I also own a Sony A700 but it is a big camera to lug around all the time. I wanted something small that I could throw in my purse to carry all the time. This camera is wonderful. I get great shots in all kinds of light, the pictures are clear, close-ups are amazing, it’s fast and the battery lasts a long time. The only thing that I would change to make it even better, is more optical zoom.
2. I was looking for a smaller camera that would take good quality pictures, especially on trips. I take college students abroad for a month in Costa Rica and wanted to be able to do a blog with lots of pictures to record their experiences. This camera far exceeded my expectations! It is extremely simple to operate. I have been able to figure out features that are new to me on the fly without having to refer to the manual. Particularly impressive to me are the video capabilities and the high sensitivity / low light with no flash setting. I have been able to take excellent shots in dark museums where no flash is allowed and have been able to upload good-quality videos to the blog. The software that comes with the camera works well and is very user-friendly. The 4X optical zoom is not powerful enough to take fine nature photographs from great distances, but it is good enough to zoom in to compose a picture for most general purposes. All in all, I highly recommend this camera, especially for travel.
