Looks like a good deal for a camera with rechargeable Li-ion battery. 4x zoom and SD card too so ticks all the important boxes. By reputation (never had one) Canon cameras take good snaps too.

Hot for the price. But this camera gets mixed reviews for image quality. I'd suggest choosing the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS7 (or FS8) instead. The FS7 is available for the same price at Play

Panasonics are my favourites too but usually get hammered when I mention them in Canon threads!

I never understand brand loyalty at the expense of performance. In the end, it shouldn't matter whether it's a Canon or an unknown brand, it should be down to quality, which Panasonic compact cameras have in abundance anyway

canon point-and-shoot go through cycles of excellence and mediocrity, they change sensor size and quality quite often... e.g wife's ixus 750 had a larger sensor was followed by a one with more pixels and smaller sensor, and then they switched back.

all these cameras are limited by the size of the lens and sensor; you can't effectively get more than maybe 4Mp or 5Mp at best! the best place to get a good idea of whether a camera is any good is [url]www.dpreview.com[/url]

I got one of these for my wife when it was £99 a while ago and I love it. Think it takes a great camera and I'm pretty fussy being a Canon DSLR user. Pics are sharp, well defined colours, and auto adjust in Lightroom for example does very little to them.

It also has a good big bright screen, is a nice size, slim, feels well made if a little plasticky (although it is metal). And it has a nice wee feature that when you review a pic it will highlight the focus point so you know if has selected the right place.

Only downside is you have to take the battery out and put it in the charger. Bit like the Nikons. So much handier when it charges in-situ.

Havent really used it in low light so can't comment on that. For £89 though, it is well worth it.

chdk is not available..
Fail....

Hardly a fail. I would imagine the vast majority would be happy to use it as it comes, without hacking it.

Imo if you want to shoot RAW or whatever, buy a proper camera.

I disagree re the charging issue. You'll need at least one additional battery and it's better if the camera is still available while this is charging.

Agreed, most of the people using this camera are looking for a point and shoot. CHDK is mainly for photography geeks who might have a point-and-shoot canon in addition to their main camera, and want to squeeze the most out of it, or budding photographers who are looking to get started in photography with the tools they have at hand.

True, never actually though of it like that!! I did get 2 spare batteries from ebay for like £6 quid and a leather case in tesco for £4.19.

Anyway heat for a great wee camera.
