Canon Powershot S5 IS review
This is an amazing camera, very easy to use without having to go digging into the owners manual. We needed a quick camera with little or no shutter lag and a strong flash so as not to miss any precious moments with our little ones. This camera does not disappoint, it shoots very quickly, does great on batteries, has the tilt screen which comes in very handy for shooting at extreme angles. The superzoom is spectacular, 12x optical and 48x total with the digital zoom gives very good pictures even at full zoom. The Image stabilization makes a huge difference especially when shooting with the zoom lens, a very nice feature and I can't imagine buying a camera without it. The only complaints I have are the included 32mb SD card (could be bigger, but I guess its better than nothing)....and the lens cap pops off if you even slightly brush against it. It tends to come off when going in and out of the camera bag. Those are very minor details and didn't affect my purchasing this camera as I knew about these details before. Picture quality is excellent and with all of the settings (including manual controls), there's no limit to what you can do with this camera. Buy.com had the best price plus free shipping, you can't beat it. Highly recommended, an excellent camera for the money!
