Amazon.com Review

Canon's Elura 40MC is one of the smallest, lightest digital video camcorders available. Weighing around 14 ounces, this vertically oriented camcorder fits snugly into the palm of your hand (not resting on your hand like most cameras, this one fits almost inside it).

Because of its compact frame, some of its features had to be trimmed. Its 2-inch LCD is smaller than most, but its bright screen can be viewed easily even in daylight. Unlike many other camcorders, the Elura's viewfinder displays in color, not black and white. It also offers only a 10x optical zoom, not as high as other cameras, but still adequate for most users.

Unlike many camcorders whose still image quality is subpar, the Elura 40MC captures 1024 x 768 pixel still pictures on a Secure Digital media card (an 8 MB SD card is included) rather than on the MiniDV media. And if coupled with a Canon CP-10 card photo printer, you can directly print images from the Elura without going through your PC.

But it's video quality that matters most in a DV camcorder. The Elura 40MC captured excellent video, even in poor lighting conditions. It doesn't have a built-in light, but its low-light mode still managed to record impressive video with realistic colors and limited graininess.

The Elura's autofocus worked quickly and accurately, and its zoom buttons were within easy reach during filming. The basic modes of the camera make it point-and-shoot easy for the novice user. Audio quality with the built-in mic wasn't the best (we noticed some noise during recording), but the Elura comes with a port that lets you connect an external microphone.

It's not the least expensive camcorder out there, but the extreme portability of the Elura 40MC paired with its excellent video quality make it an appealing choice. --J. Curtis

Pros:

  • Light and compact
  • High quality video
  • Good still image capture

Cons:

  • Average optical zoom
  • Some audio noise

4-0 out of 5 stars I like it...but NO camera is all things to all people
I got mine a month ago for a trip to Europe and love it. I could fit it in my jacket pocket so the size is perfect. This is my first camcorder (or first camera other than an old Olympus 35mm), so I'm clearly an amateur with this stuff. But, the video looks fantastic, especially outside. Weather doesn't matter since it was cloudy everyday but one. Video still looked as good as any TV image. It has more features than I know how to use, or even care to use.

Yes, the still pix are lower quality, but what MiniDV camcorder has a 4 or 5 megapixel resolution?? Sony only offers a 2 MP resolution on its MicroDV. But who's kidding who? If you're buying this camera for it's still picture ability, save yourself a few hundred bucks and buy a still-mode camera, not a camcorder. If you want a very small and highly portable camcorder which takes great outdoor video, then this should be on your list. Yes, the indoor video is not as great as the outdoor video, but realize this--you buy this for the size--it can't possibly be everything to everyone. If you need a camcorder for exclusively indoor action, buy one designed for that with all the low light/night modes/infrared/light attachment gizmos.

As far as the "motor whine" picked up from the mic, I don't find it all that annoying. You do hear it, but after a few seconds you forget about it and tune it out. However, I believe the audio is great. I have no issue with the sound. It picks up distant voices and sounds just fine. Yes, if you hold the camera too close to your head as you narrate, then your voice does seem amplified compared to others. But then, what camcorder doesn't amplify the voice closest to the microphone?

I have big hands but I don't have any problem with the buttons. Realize, this is a small camera so if you need big buttons, get a bigger camera.

Canon customer service told me they have not tested any SD/MMC card over 64MB, so they recommended I not use anything larger. I do admit, this is a big drawback, as one 128 or 256 card is much cheaper than 2 or 3, 64MB cards. Plus you'd have fewer cards to keep track of.

I don't believe this camcorder was designed for strictly professional use. If it was, it would be 5x the size and 10x the weight. You buy this camera for its size/portability. This should be used for "hobby" filming and as an excellent travel camcorder.

As far as the "save yourself the trouble and buy a Sony" crowd goes, I've bought numerous Sony components over the years, from TV's to cordless phones. For the $$, Sony doesn't work any better than anything else out there. They just want a few more hundred dollars of you hard-earned coin to make you think you got a better item. Ask the Sony-lovers about software compatability for the MicroDV...and then watch 'em squirm. Read the Amazon.com reviews of the DCRIP7BT. That's what kept me away from Sony.

5-0 out of 5 stars An great camcorder and VERY easy to take with you.
Armed with lots of research and my wife's two criteria for selecting a camcorder (it had to be small and easy to use) we bought the Elura MC 40 for its list of features in a very small and very cool package -- plus the canon quality. This one has all the features of a full-sized DV cam, but fits into a small, padded waist pack with a couple of tapes, batteries, and the charger without a problem. This was key as we are expecting our first child and didn't want to add too much to the extra baggage we'll be carrying.

This one doesn't have megapixel stills at 1020x960, but it's still tons better than 640x480 on most compact cams, and we have a 35mm for the serious photography anyway. Lots of great on-camera editing and shooting features, and some basic photo and movie editing software included. If you're going to do some serious movie editing, I'd recommend purchasing a better software package or taking advantage of one of Canon's mail-in rebate deals.

Mac users, you'll love this one. We had a pre-USB Powerbook running OS 8.6 and bought USB and Firewire PCMCIA cards for it. It runs just great without spending the extra cash upgrading the OS like the card manufacturers say to. Also, I wouldn't spend the extra cash on the expensive firewire cards that a Mac specific. I picked up an inexpensive IBM card [$$] at the local computer store, plugged it in, downloaded the supporting drivers from Apple, and it fired right up.

You will have a lot of fun with this cam. We took it out for the first time on July 4th, and everyone was amazed by it. Plugged it into the S-video on the nearest TV, and we had a great time watching the day's events!

1-0 out of 5 stars Tape eating problems
I bought my Elura 40MC 1.5 years ago. For the first year it worked fine. However, after the warranty ran out I began to have the notorious "tape eating problem" that everyone is talking about. I would steer clear of this product since Canon is reluctant to do anything about it.

1-0 out of 5 stars No Canon Camera anymore for me
After owning the Elura MC 40 for 10 months and taping not even 6 hours the infamous 'Remove the cassette' error started to apear and the data on the tape was garbled and completely unuseable.
After doing some research on the internet I found out, that many cameras of canon have this problem.
Unfortunatly the local Canon Customer Service refused to even look at the camera as it was purchased in the U.S. - "You don't expect us to order the spare parts for you?" was all they told me.
I really regret spending a lot of money for a camera that can now only be used for taking low quality pics.

2-0 out of 5 stars Malfunctions Malfunctions
The zooming feature on this camera I purchased went haywire. The camera would constantly zoom in on everything unless I held the W down, causing great annoyance. Other malfunctions such as on the LCD, the "no memory card inserted" symbol would light up even after its proper insertion and formatting. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars great little camcorder!
We purchased the Elura 65 for our new baby who is due in one month. This camera is small and sleek with a very nice look to it. We just received it a few days ago and have done several tests in different lighting. The quality is BEAUTIFUL outdoors and indoors with the lights on or with the natural sunlight coming in. However, the picture was very dark and grainy when we filmed at a wedding the other night. Keep in mind that the lighting in the place was very dim...there was little to no light. I've done a lot of research on Mini DV camcorders recently and I've yet to see one that takes good pictures in low light areas. I'm wondering if there is an external light that I can purchase for my new camera. This is not reason enough to return the camera, since the reviews on all the other brands and models state the same problem. I just think it's something that needs to be fine-tuned on ALL mini DV cameras in general.

The 16x optical zoom is fabulous on this camera and there is NO motor noise (or at least none that we can hear) as the Canon ZR models claim to have.

One drawback which MAY be a problem is that since this camera is so small (smaller in height than the Canon ZR models), it seems like it can be hard to hold steady...but I'm hoping that's where the image stabilization will come in.

Overall, it's a great little camera! ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Improving on an original can be a daunting task. Canon has succeeded quite well, thank you. The ZR45MC is the successor to the ZR25MC. Canon increased the optical zoom to 18x--the digital now sits at 360x--and added an analog pass-through port. Although the ZR line featured analog-in for dubbing your movies to MiniDV, the new pass-through port allows you to go straight to the computer, eliminating a possibly cumbersome step.

The ZR45MC also has a lot of the same features that made the original a lot of fun. A 2.5-inch LCD is swivel-mounted, permitting the shooter to use the camera at odd angles. Various digital effects and autoexposure modes help ensure your footage turns out well. The digital still mode makes a return, letting you capture 640 x 480 stills onto an included 8 MB MMC.

Finally, Canon threw in a low-light color-shooting mode that makes the ZR45MC that much more attractive. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT CAMERA FOR ANYONE!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
I love this camcorder. First of all, I am going to start this review by telling you about the biggest concern I had when I bought this camera. Many people say that there was a lot of motor hum, this may be the case when the room is TOTALLY silent, however an external mic fixes this. ALL MINIDV CAMERAS HAVE THIS PROBLEM!! People complain that the mic adds extra size, but if you want to spend the same amount of money on a digital 8, with less resolution, much bigger, and heavier, than get a Mic for your MiniDV, then you have some problems. However since I usually overlap music onto my videos, its not such a big probelm for me. The size is great (any bigger and it wouldn't be comfortable, and any smaller it would be difficult to hold). I had the Sony TRV-340 Digital 8 Camera and then returned for only one reason, it was heavy and big (it cut off circulation in my hand when I was filming, and would have to take it out every 5 minutes or it would become numb). The picture quality is pretty much the same as all other minidv's which are better than digital 8's but not enough to make a big difference. Pretty much, this is a good camera at a great price. If you want a MiniDV, go with this no doubt, however if you have hi 8 or 8mm tapes you should probably go with a digital 8. They are pretty good for the price, but big and bulky.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very good cam/camera
First off, this is my first digital camcorder/camera. I purchased this camera only 3 days ago and I'm already having too much fun with downloading pictures to and from the cam. It's capable of doing all this (and pretty easy I may add) to do all this even if you're a first timer. It comes with a CD with the necessary software and also a manual on how to install the software and how to use it for downloading/uploading pix. Very easy and informative. The MMC card can take as many as 100 pictures at a time, so it's more than enough for me.

As for the quality of the camcorder for "regular filming", I'm impressed. It has 7 or 8 different settings for different filming situations such as "sports", "portrait", "night mode", and others. Also, the buttons in this camera don't look as intimidating as some of the others I've seen/used. All buttons are nicely placed on the camera and I have no problems with any of them. Plus, this camera is pretty small for this price. The only ones that I've seen that are this small (or smaller) are the ones in the [price range](and above) range. I got this one for [price], and I'm more than happy with it's $ize ;-)

So far, I think I'll be enjoying this camera for a long time. I'm very happy with it and I recommend this for anyone who is just getting into digital cams/camera. It has more than enough features for someone who is just getting into the world of digital camcorders/cameras. The quality of the pictures are not excellent, but I think it's nice enough to even impress some people. I highly recommend this cam/camera.

5-0 out of 5 stars Software Needed!
This is one great camcorder! I know because I have one, but have lost the software when traveling. Would anyone know how I can get the software? Called Canon, it's discontinued. Searched the Web, nothing! Help!

3-0 out of 5 stars All was well until the "safety mechanism" went berserk.
This is not a high-end camera, but was good enough for me. I have recorded 12 tapes on it. Beginning with tapes 11 and 12 a problem has developed with rewinding the cartridge. After about 1 minute (recording time) worth of rewinding, it stops and displays "Remove Cartridge" on the screen. I take out the tape, put it back and get another minute rewound before it happens again. These have all been brand new tapes. A visit to Canon's website only reveals that I have to take it to be serviced. Another review here says their estimate to fix the camera was $160. I hope that is wrong :(

1-0 out of 5 stars Nice camera, when it works
I love the features and optics of this camera. I love everything about it, except that it really doesn't work and their service is terrible. Many people posted about the humming sound -- I didn't have that problem. But the electrical system was intermittent from the time I got the camera. I've sent it to them three times, and each time they repair it, or claim to. Now it is out of warranty and the battery still doesn't work. So I'll have to buy a new camera and hope that you don't make the same mistake I did -- go with a different camera. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

The Canon i470D Photo Printer delivers high-quality photos from your computer or directly from removable memory, as well as detailed printing from the Web and crisp text. It achieves print speeds of up to 18 pages per minute in black and up to 12 ppm in color, along with resolution of up to 4,800 x 1,200 color dpi.

The i470D comes with a built-in print-operation panel, Canon Photo Viewer software, and slots for CompactFlash card, Memory Stick, Microdrive, SmartMedia, SD Card, and MultimediaCard. You can print with or without your computer--just connect a compatible Canon digital camera or camcorder to your i470D printer and print (see specifications for a list of compatible cameras).

The unit's LCD simplifies printing without your computer, offering access to features like image selection, size, paper selection, date stamp, and number of prints. Canon Photo Viewer software is automatically installed with the printer driver and lets you view images on your monitor while you print using the printer's operation panel.

The i470D produces edge-to-edge borderless printing (4 x 6-inch, 5 x 7-inch, or 8.5 x 11-inch prints) with the look and feel of a traditional photograph. The printer generates 4 x 6-inch prints in approximately 93 seconds. Canon advanced MicroFine Droplet Technology uses a nozzle system that ejects consistent, prescribed-volume droplets in microscopic sizes for fine detail.

The i470D supports the worldwide standard Exif 2.2 (Exchangeable Image Format File), so when an Exif-compliant camera captures a photo, important camera settings and shooting conditions are saved in the JPEG image file. Easy-PhotoPrint software analyzes the recorded data and automatically adjusts printer driver settings for optimum image processing. To simplify Web-page printing, Canon also includes Easy-WebPrint software (Windows only), so pages print just as they're seen onscreen. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars WOW! Incredible results at an incredible price
I continue to be amazed at the quality of this printer. I've owned Epson 6 color printers (785. 900) and the results from this four color printer are superior. Blazing fast with excellent skintone and resolution on a variety of papers. Don't get me wrong, the Epsons will give great results of you use the proper paper and print settings, but I found that if I used the highest quality settings the Epson's seemed to dump and waste ink. With the Canon I print at highest quality and get photos that look like photos, not like inkjet printouts that can't be touched lest you mar the surface. The fact that this printer can support direct printing from digicams and memory cards is an added bonus. Lastly, its very economical in the use of ink. And one more time, this printer is FAST!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Value
This printer does a very good job for the price. The color pictures are pretty crisp and clear and sometimes better than Lab quality. You can use this camera as a regular printer too. Set up is real fast. The ink cartridges are cheap and last long. Do not buy the perforated Canon Glossy paper, the regular Canon Glossy paper should be fine. I did not notice any difference in print quality between the Canon Glossy Paper print and the Canon Pro paper print. Overall I recommend this printer if you are willing to spend less that 75$ (I bought mine for 39$ look out for deals), dont go by the low price of this printer you will be amazed at the quality of the print outs.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very pleased after six months...
This printer has been great. Bought it for $50, after a $50 instant/in-store rebate. The black ink cartridges are inexpensive and longer lasting than my previous, and costly, BJ-100 cartridges. The printer is fairly quiet and prints at an acceptable speed. So far the print quality (black & color) has been excellent. I have yet to use it for any photo pics though - so can't comment there.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Printer/Great Price
Excellent quality of printed items - documents and photos. What's better is the long-lasting cartridges and their low price.

5-0 out of 5 stars one of the best purchase I've ever made
In fact, I've got the printer (...) when it was in promotion. Cheap, but never seen any inkjet printer good as this one. I'm 100% satisfied with the picture quality. Simply the best value for the money. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

A laser multifunction from Canon, the MF5550 consolidates important office functions into one unit, saving on both space and money. Designed with small business users in mind, the MF5550 can scan, copy, fax, and print, and comes with a number of useful features.

A 250-sheet front-loading paper cassette and single-sheet multi-purpose feeder are provided, while a 50-sheet automatic document feeder helps save valuable time when scanning, copying, or faxing large documents. Maximum print and copy resolutions of 600 x 600 dpi are accompanied by a maximum optical scan resolution 1,200 x 2,400 dpi, (up to 9,600 x 9,600 dpi interpolated), while 256 levels of halftone and a 48-bit internal color depth produce high-quality, accurate scans suitable for a wide range of applications.

The included software comes with an OCR program, so you can easily convert scanned documents into text files on your computer. Print speeds are as fast as 19 ppm for letter-sized documents and copy speeds of up to 19 cpm (at lower resolutions) and a time-to-first-copy of around 13 seconds. The copier accepts originals up to 8.5 by 14 inches and can enlarge or reduces copies anywhere from 50% to 200%.

The fax machine has a 33.6Kbps modem, with fax resolutions of up to 203 x 196 dpi. A fax memory of up to 255 pages ensures that even if you run out of paper, you won't lose important faxes, and 12 standard and 100 coded speed dial presets provide an easy way to store frequently used numbers.

The MF5550 has a 19.1-by-18.1-inch footprint and connects to the host computer via its USB port. PC compatible only, the unit also comes backed with a one-year parts and labor warranty.

3-0 out of 5 stars Despite attractive feature set & price, should be avoided
I bought one of these and returned it after a week. It is not horrible. The print speed & quality are good, ditto for copies. (However, copies made from the auto-document feeder are not perfectly centered on the page, a minor annoyance.) I haven't tried it for incoming faxes, but for outgoing faxes it usually works just fine. One idiosyncracy is that the fax operation is completely silent. Every other machine I've used had a little speaker that let you monitor the dialing and transmission, so it's weird that the fax on this machine is silent. Finally, the price is decent for a machine with all these features.

Nonetheless, I recommend you look elsewhere. The main reason is that the build quality of the Canon MF5550 is mediocre. It looks great in the store, but get it home and it just feels cheaply built. I was really afraid that mine wouldn't last more than a year. The other problem is that printing envelopes (or anything on non-standard paper) is confusing, awkward, and time-consuming.

I've read elsewhere that Canon outsourced the design and manufacture of this particular model to save costs. I believe it. The Canon MF5550 is not of the same quality as other Canon machines I've used or owned.

4-0 out of 5 stars Unfairly Maligned
I purchsed this machine because of the relatively low price after rebate - it was a replacement for a HP OfficeJet v40 that kept having problems.

The other reviews make a valid point - printing single envelopes is a stupid, time consuming process. Aside from that, this is an excellent machine. It makes excellent copies, scans, and faxes, and it is lightning fast.

I use the machine as a fax machine on a dedicated line, and to print large quantities of handouts for my athletic club - this saves me costs for printing and copying that I used to take to the office supply store or the professional printer. Now I only need them to make 2 part forms and color advertisements. The laser printer function alone was worth the purchase price, and the scanner, fax and copy functions all work well. It does what I need it to do, it does it quickly, quietly, and cheaply (only one toner consumable, much cheaper than anything inkjet).

1-0 out of 5 stars Do not buy this one
1) Misses some incoming faxes! (There is really no need to read further, is there?)We are still attempting to determine what causes this, but it is none of the usual suspects, and Canon has such great suggestions as check the telephone line.
2) We bought this unit because of the feature set and and the excellent scan/print quality, but the negatives of the small, shoddy paper tray outweigh these.
3) No Sound. There is no keyboard sound feedback, no ring (without connecting a separate phone or answering machine), no beeps, nothing. It is surprising how important sound feedback is on a fax machine.
4) There are vertical lines which appear on faxes, scans and copies after several weeks. This is a recurring problem that is easily solved by hard cleaning the automatic document feeder, but this unit seems to be especially prone to this -- so much so that Canon has a sticker on the machine that tells you how to solve the problem.
5) Sorry, Canon, but this machine is not a good choice for any use at any price.

1-0 out of 5 stars Should not be in production -- major paper handling problems
I had been looking at multi-function devices (MFDs) for a little over one year. One of the things that delayed my purchase is that the all-in-one machines are usually a generation or two behind in technology. The Canon imageCLASS MF5550 is able to print-copy-scan-fax, with an automatic document feeder (ADF) and a glass platen for laying objects flat for scanning and copying. Because this Canon was also the first MFD with USB 2.0, I bought it for my solo law firm. This unit also looked more graceful than other Canon or Brother models. I have owned this unit for three months. I paid $450 plus tax from Office Depot. The manager agreed to come close to available online prices.

While this unit does some functions very well, it does other basic functions very poorly, and I do not recommend it. Although you are buying the Canon name, they actually outsourced the design of this model, and the design company has taken the position that if there is some way to get a function to work, no matter how convoluted, then the printer does what it claims to do.

* CONS *

ENVELOPE PRINTING is the main reason to stay away from this MFD. It will not allow you to print an envelope unless you change the paper sizes for both the copier (7 steps) and Windows (6 steps). And there are 2 pop-up Windows error messages if your Word document has an envelope on one page and a letter on another. These 2 errors show up again when you change the Windows settings back. There are also 2 more error messages when you actually hit the print button to print the envelope only. So you have 6 error messages that require a keystroke or mouse click. Then you have to change both the copier and Windows settings back again to print a non-envelope. That is a grand total of 34 EXTRA keystrokes or mouse clicks. I did not count the basic keystrokes or mouse clicks when you select the Word print button and go through the Word pop-up dialog box. Make sure you only print the envelope page, or otherwise on your letter-size page will only be printed with an envelope-width-size strip of text down the middle.

With my old HP 4P printer, the Word print pop-up dialog was the only step required to print envelopes and letters. The HP automatically waited for me to feed an envelope in the manual paper feeder for any pages that were not letter size, and then printed the rest of the letter-size pages in the same print job. One of the less senior (but know-it-all) Canon reps claimed that the problem was with Windows, even though the old HP did just fine and the Canon was a nightmare under the same OS. One of the more senior Canon reps said that problem was built-in to the printer, and a driver update will not fix the above issues.

The MFD documentation claims you need insert the envelope into the manual feeder with the stamp-end first. However, Word will print the envelope upside-down. The MFD manual claims that the printer will jam if you put the return-address side in first, but mine has never jammed.

On the upside, the envelopes do come out okay without using the back door to make them go straight out the back instead of coming out the front.

ODD PAPER SIZES - this Canon only handles the preset paper sizes specified in its driver, so you cannot use this printer to address Christmas card envelopes or certified mail receipts. Using the manual feeder is not a work around. The Canon locks up, and you either have to open the toner cartridge door or unplug the machine to get it to reset. My old HP printer works fine with all Windows (98SE, XP Pro), and will automatically default to the manual paper feeder if I am not printing a page that is the default paper tray size. The HP won't give me an error, no matter what paper I put in the manual feeder.

ENLARGE/REDUCE - automatic or manual 50-200%; but unfortunately you cannot zoom pages that come through the ADF. Also, the glass platen cannot see past letter-size 11", even though it is about one inch longer than that. Thus, you cannot copy anything longer than 11" with either the ADF or laying a page on the glass platen. If you had a document or image on your hard drive that was legal size, you could probably print it - or maybe the ADF plus the manual feeder would allow you to copy legal size (I have not tried either).

INK/TONER CARTRIDGE is combined; but cartridge is too small (2,500 printouts) and expensive at $80.00. That's where companies make their money these days. HP, Lexmark and probably even Canon use proprietary codes to prevent third parties from making generic cartridges. I have not seen a non-Canon X25 cartridge available anywhere, and only a few drill-and-refills are available on ebay.

EXPOSURE - images appear too dark when printing or copying.

"2 ON 1" COPYING - the manual states that you can copy on both sides of a page, but the errata (i.e., correction) sheet confirms that the machine really cannot.

FAXING requires that you use a shorter telephone line (I wanted to use 25 feet), or you will have trouble sending and receiving.

THE PAPER TRAY really is too small for 250 sheets, so expect to break your 500-sheet pack in three parts (this means more refilling and running out of paper in the middle of a job).

THE ENERGY-SAVER LIGHT is a surprisingly strong nightlight for its small size (well, I mentioned everything else - I might as well include it all).

WARRANTY - one year is too short. Real (i.e., non-outsourced) Canons carry a three-year warranty.

* PROS *

PRINT AND COPY QUALITY is excellent, and you cannot tell the difference between the original and the copy. It is every bit 600x600 dpi printing.

AUTOMATIC DOCUMENT FEEDER - I had no problem with misfed pages; it claims to handle 50 pages.

COPY AND PRINT SPEEDS are very fast - it spits one page out and prints the next right away.

COVER - stays up with no balance problem; it can be raised about 1 inch when closed. You need to keep it down when copying small papers like receipts and checks, because it will waste a bunch of black toner printing in the empty areas without the cover closed. The cover provides a white background.

COLLATE function works well.

FAX - You can store often-used fax numbers, and the fax documentation says it recognizes "distinctive ring" from the phone company.

LACK OF NOISE - It is completely silent quiet when in energy-saver mode or in standby after an operation. There is no on/off button on the Canon. My HP was very noisy when it was turned on and even louder when printing. When the Canon is working, it is also less noisy than the HP.

SCAN SPEED - The scans are much faster than my old parallel-port, dedicated scanner, and the supplied word-recognition programs (OmniPage and PageManager) do a decent job. One of the programs defaults to .bmp images for image scanning, which take up a lot more room than a .jpg. You cannot change the default.

CANON CUSTOMER SUPPORT does actually answer their phone, and the three senior reps, Bill (who helped me), Josh and Steve will spend time with you explaining why this machine is a piece of junk. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

With a combination of speed, precision, and brilliant color, the Canon S900 brings professional-quality printing to home desktops. Print speeds as low as 37 seconds for a border-free, 4-by-6-inch print and about a minute for an 8-by-10-inch print are suitably impressive, while a system of six ink tanks (one of each is included in the box) allows you to economically replace just the colors you use most, cutting back on both cost and waste.

The bubble-jet-style print head is equipped with 3,072 nozzles, which use Canon's Microfine Droplet technology to guarantee crisp, accurate detail and rich colors. With a resolution of 2,400 x 1,200 dpi and 49 levels of gradation, your photos will come out looking clean, bright, and true to life. The border-free printer settings for 4-by-6-inch stock result in professional-looking, edge-to-edge photos you can be proud of. A large number of paper types and sizes are easily accommodated, including transparencies, fabric transfers, photo cards, banners, envelopes, letter, legal, A4, A5, and more. The S900's paper tray can hold up to 100 sheets of 17-lb. paper.

Installation is easy thanks to a convenient USB port, while a software bundle--including appropriate drivers, a user's guide, PhotoRecord (PC), ImageBrowser (Mac), ZoomBrowser (PC), and PhotoStitch (PC/Mac)--helps you get the most out of your printer. A power cable and sample paper pack is also included. Weighing about 13 pounds, the S900 has a modest footprint, measuring just 17.4 by 12.8 inches. Canon provides a one-year warranty, with Instant Exchange service, covering parts and service. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing Printer!
I did a lot of research on printers and decided to wait for the Canon S900 to come out. It was definitely worth it...compared to other ink-jet printers, you are gaining in speed and quality, which is really what it all comes down to with a printer.

The printer comes nicely packed with a quick-start guide and CD right inside the top of the box. The 6 ink cartridges are also tucked in, three on each side. I ordered backup ink cartridges as well. Ordering the ink cartridges without actually having seen the printer or what cartridges it takes was a bit of a risk, especially when the cartridges were shipped ahead of the printer and were labeled for the Canon S800. But they are fine. Look for the BCI-6xx model numbers and you will be fine.

Also, be sure to order a USB A-B type cable as the printer does not come with one. These are very cheap, but if you get the printer and don't have a cable, it will make for a disappointing evening when you can't set it up.

Setup was a breeze. The print quality is outstanding, and the printer is very quiet. I do a lot of graphics and text printing and it is amazingly fast and the the text is clear. I would recommend getting some good paper, though, as regular xerox machine type paper will not do this printer justice. I could notice a clear difference in text output.

The six different ink cartridges could be viewed by some to be a downfall, but I would rather replace one $10 color when needed than have to replace all of the colors at once like in other brands.

In summary, this is outstanding printer, and if you can afford it, you will not be disappointed. Coupled with a good digital camera, you will never need to get film developed again!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Quality for the $$$
This is my first review and I cannot say enough about the S900. I spent time researching before my purchase and found S900 to be the best bang for the buck. While the printer itself is a bit more bulky for my taste, the quality from the first print made little quirks like that go out the window. All previous reviews have a point about the cost of ink but all printers are like that. I was amazed at how well ink is conserved - I must have printed out 50 high res pictures by now and the ink catridges are still 2/3 full. My only fault with the printer had to do with the use of the right type of paper. After I ran out of the Canon paper I had purchased with the printer, I purchased Kodak. The quality of the printed photo was BAD. I then purchased HP paper and had the same result. Moral of the story: NOT ALL PHOTO PAPER IS THE SAME. I realized too late that the photo printers sell photo paper that best suits their printer model. Buy Canon photo paper for a Canon printer. I must note the Epson photo paper worked just as well as the Canon paper.

5-0 out of 5 stars What a great printer
Never being a fan of Canon products, I decided (after doing extensive research) to buy the Canon G2 digital camera. So far, I am extremely please despite the fact that it is bulky. I then needed to upgrade to a photo printer and decided to give the Canon S900 a try. WOW! I could not believe the quality of the photos. No more need to get photos developed. This printer does the job. It's fast, quiet and the fact that it uses 6 ink cartridges is economical. At first I had a hard time finding Canon brand photo paper. Other brands didn't do it justice, but Best Buy now carries the entire line. ... I highly recommend this printer to all digital camera owners. It can't be beat!

3-0 out of 5 stars I loved it while it worked
Keep in mind this is a consumer printer. It is not going to hold up long if you print hundreds of pages per month. I had mine for almost two years before it started acting up. I've probably printed between 300-500 full page (letter size or 8x10) prints with some smaller prints mixed in. It has now started clogging (one or more colors stop coming out) and doesn't appear to be as sharp as it used to be.

Using the cleaning or deep cleaning feature helped at first but it clogged again last night very soon after cleaning it. Using the cleaning feature seems to waste a lot of ink and this will fill up or saturate the waste ink pads inside the printer. Once the waste ink pads are full, the printer will not print any more and you have to have the printer serviced if you ever want to use it again. Mine hasn't stopped working yet but I'm sure the waste ink is getting full and I'm tired of wasting ink anyway by trying to "clean" it.

From reading up on this printer on the Web, it appears the print head is the weak link. Some people have had it replaced several times. A new print head is around $85 and the waste ink pads are about $25 just for the parts. I was quoted $135 to replace the head and pads. Since I did like the printer when it was working and because I already have extra ink for it, I was going to get it fixed. I then found a refurbished S900 here on Amazon for $99. It supposedly comes in the box from Canon and has a 90 day warranty and comes with ink! If it comes with all six colors of Cannon ink, that is worth $72 alone! I just bought the refurbished printer and wrote this review to help those of you who are having similar issues. I hope the refurbished printer works. If not, I'm going to find the nearest Canon office and throw both printers through the front window.

One more thing, don't waste your time, money or ink by using non-Canon paper. Kodak paper in particular (even their best paper) does NOT work well in this printer. I understand there are some 3rd party papers that work well in this printer but I have yet to use one. I have tried Kodak, HP, Epson, and a few other brands and they all stink. I prefer the Canon Photo Paper Plus Glossy. It seems to look as good as the Photo Paper Pro and costs a little less. Namaste and Good luck!

2-0 out of 5 stars Bad print heads
I had the S900 for over a year and everything worked perfectly. Then the print head broke, horrible banding that simply couldn't be fixed. So I inquired and ordered a new one - $85 thank you very much. I got it home and within 5 minutes it too had broken. I took the (new) broken printhead back to the store and they replaced it free. That was in December 2003.

Now, March 2004, the print head has broken down - AGAIN. I love the quality of the prints, absolutely terrific. But the continuing technical problems make this printer a lemon.

I paid $350 in early 2002 when this printer came out and I feel I overpaid given the recurring problems. Canon should be punished for releasing a sub-standard printer like this on to the market. ... Read more

A smoothly designed point and shoot that doesn't lack in important features, the Canon Sure Shot 90u is easy to use and can adjust to most situations to capture clear photos. The 2.3x zoom (38 to 90 millimeters) provides a wide range of options in snapping your subject.

5-0 out of 5 stars love it
i received this camera as a gift and love it. i'm a casual picture taker and i find that the quality of the pictures is very good overall. it's easy to use.

1-0 out of 5 stars Rip-off! Canon knew there was problem, sold cameras anyway
If you look up "canon" and "flashing h" in a search engine, you'll see what you'll get if you buy this camera. Canon knew there was a problem and put the cameras on the market anyway. Huge rip-off and a waste of my $90. I WILL NEVER BUY A CANON PRODUCT AGAIN.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not very impressed
After reading the reviews on this site for this camera it sounded like the perfect camera to give my friend as a gift. She has been loving using my expensive SLR camera and I was hoping that if she had a nice camera she would be able to take photos that were of a great quality like mine. Well I purchased this Cannon Sure Shot and the first reason we didn't like it was that the flash took forever to take a photo. The time from when you pushed the button to when it finially finished the photo was to long for taking pictures of kids. The second thing we didn't like was that the viewfinder was so small. It made it really difficult to take accurate photos at night. I would just have to hope that I got everyone in the photo. This might just be because we are spoiled with my SLR camera but I ended up returning the Canon Sure Shot. I am now going to try another point and shoot camera and hope I have better luck. I wouldn't recommend the Cannon Sure Shot camera to anyone who wants to take photos of kids or anything else where the moment would pass you by in a couple of seconds because with this camera you won't be able to capture that moment on film.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Photo Quality!
I received the Canon Sure Shot, a few weeks ago, as a wedding gift. I am completely impressed with the quality of the pictures. The colors are noticeably more crisp & clear than the photos I take with my Olympus Stylus camera, and costed about the same price. My Olympus Epic Stylus is a little bit smaller & lighter & has a weather resistant cover. However, the Canon is plenty small & light compared to other cameras.... and the output is so much nicer, that I plan to use this as my main camera (I'll save the ultralight, weather-resistant Olympus for hiking or backpacking). I have to give this a 5... a great buy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for what I want a camera for
This camera is perect for my needs. It's easy to load, and basically auto everything. It will flash if it needs to. It rewinds when it's done. I love the zoom feature. The pictures come out perfect. Nice and sharp. Great color. The camera is not too big so it fits easily in a small purse or hip pouch.
My only complaint is that Canon does not include a case with the camera or a battery. Nothing worse then getting a new camera and you can't use it because the battery wasn't included. I like a case too. I ordered a really nice soft leather one. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars simple and easy
Great Camera for the price. It's simple and compact which makes it easy to point and shoot. I would have given it five stars but it came without battery. Overall very satisfied.

1-0 out of 5 stars Why ship a new camera without a battery?
Why isn't the purchaser informed the camera comes without a battery? It's the first camera I have ever purchased which required a battery and wasn't delivered with one. Because of this I am not able to rate this camera.
I have tried to turn the camera on to no avail. My wife also was unable to turn the camera on. So, we have presumed the camera has no battery. Neither of us were able to open the battery compartment to verify the absence of a battery because evidently neither of us has the required strength to do this. I shall take this to a camera store sometime this week to check the camera out. I placed a roll of film in the camera but nothing happened when I closed the case. The film was not taken up. The number "1" did not appear on the screen indicating the camera was ready for action. What more can I say???

3-0 out of 5 stars Almost everything we wanted.
When we went shopping for a camera to replace our current one, this is the one that we came across. My brother even has the same camera and he loves it. We did research and found that it had everything that we needed until upon receiving the camera, we found that it doesn't have the date caption that we thought that it did. There are two different models of this camera, one says caption and one doesn't. We had seen the one with caption at many other stores and didn't realize that there was a model without a caption. It is a great camera, unless the date caption is an important feature for your family.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great camera!!!! If you have kids...this is for you!!!
Finally I have found the camera for me! I have shopped around quite a bit, and have done alot of research! I have tried "Nikon"..."Minolta" and they do not even compare to this camera!

I have kids and taking pictures fast is a must for me! I have yet to miss a moment! The flash is ready to go quickly after a picture is taken,(so you can take 2 pics of your baby doing something cute!!)You do not have to keep someone smiling while the red eye reducer light is working, it is that fast!! The view finder is large, so you can find something moving around in the view finder quite easily! It is small and compact to keep in my purse.
I also use the Canon Rebel SLR...another great find!! But when you need a small point and shoot...this is the way to go!

TWO THUMBS UP!!!! Worth every penny I paid for!! Canon is a name to depend on!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Little Point and Shoot Camera
I bought this camera to take with me on vacation. I was looking for a small camera that would give me quality pictures without costing me a lot of money. I looked around quite a bit before making a purchase. I narrowed it down to two Canon cameras (the 130u and the z155). While I was looking for a powerful zoom, I decided the z155 may have been more power than I needed. With the 130u, I can fully extend the zoom and get sharp, bright pictures! I'm extremely happy with this camera and would definitely recommend it to anyone! ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Looking for an easy way to break into the world of digital video? Look no further than the Canon ZR65MC, which makes capturing valuable family memories as simple as pressing a button. It also features the ability to take high-resolution digital still photos and store them on memory cards.

Lens
The ZR65MC features a high-performance 1/6-inch 680,000-pixel CCD to capture high-quality video and digital photos. The zoom technology found in the ZR65MC lens is the same as Canon uses in its broadcast TV lenses. The ZR65MC is fitted with a high-performance 20x optical zoom lens, which can easily handle all your shooting needs--from wide-angle shots of all the family at the reunion to close-up sports action at full telephoto. The ZR65MC's 400x digital zoom significantly expands the telephoto magnification of the subject.

Image Stabilization
Canon's image stabilization system corrects camera shake caused by, for example, an unsteady hand. This image stabilization system makes for smoother and steadier video even with hand-held shots--at full telephoto--and with shots taken from a moving car.

Digital Still
In addition to high-quality video, the ZR65MC also captures outstanding digital photos. All it takes is a single press of the photo button to shoot crisp XGA (1,024 x 768 pixels) digital still images. The ZR65MC stores these images via the built-in slot for Secure Digital (SD) and MultiMediaCard memory cards. You can also choose to store still images on the MiniDV tape. The camcorder records the photos for approximately 6 seconds, as well as recording the sound for your verbal notes or narration.

You can search through the recorded tape for your photos using the supplied remote control. This photo search feature allows you to search for images recorded in photo mode. Search forward or backward through the images one at a time, or 10 from the current position.

More Features

  • Print photos directly to Canon bubble-jet printers
  • 2.5-inch fold-out color LCD screen and 0.33-inch color viewfinder
  • The My Camera function is designed to let you customize a number of features, including start-up image and sound, shutter sound, start-stop sound, and the self-timer sound
  • Shoot panoramic still photos, then edit together on your PC with the PhotoStitch software
  • The full-function wireless remote control works at distances up to 16 feet
  • Wide selection of faders and special effects, including sepia, black and white, wave, mosaic, and more
Inputs and Outputs
The ZR65MC comes with the standard DV IEEE 1394 port (also referred to as FireWire), which provides a lossless connection to a PC or other DV machines, as well as USB connectivity for transferring still photos. Additionally, the ZR65MC features two types of analog audio and video inputs and outputs: composite and S-video. The analog audio inputs of the ZR65MC let you dub or insert editing from CDs, cassettes, microphones, or the soundtracks of other videocassettes.

MiniDV Format
MiniDV is the new preferred format for personal and broadcast-quality video, highly regarded for its high audio and image quality. With up to 540 lines of horizontal resolution and minimum color noise, MiniDV delivers a 20 percent clearer picture than analog camcorder formats. This is all delivered on a cassette that's 1/12th the size of a standard VHS tape. A MiniDV tape offers digital recording time of 2 full hours--20 times the capacity of a CD.

Power, Size, and Contents
The ZR65MC comes with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack, which has an approximate battery life of 75 minutes when using the LCD screen. The camera itself measures 4.1 by 2.3 by 5.8 inches and weighs 18 ounces. This package includes the ZR65MC camcorder, battery pack BP-508, power adapter CA-570, wireless controller WL-D79, shoulder strap, stereo video cable, USB cable, 8 MB Secure Digital memory card, and the DV Network Solutions and Digital Video Solutions CD-ROMs. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Great quality except in low light!
This camcorder has a lot going for it: it's small and lightweight and very easy to use. It has one of the best digitial zooms of any camcorder on the market (20X) and is loaded with lots of special effects. The quality of the video in good lighting conditions or outdoor filming is excellent...very clear and sharp. It also converts analog to digital which is a major plus. And the price is pretty reasonable for all that you get.

That being said, I have to mention the cons: the qulaity of the video in low light situations is very poor...the video is fuzzy and blurrry (just like most of the reviews say). And using the "night mode" or "low light mode" does brighten the picture a bit but the quality is still not acceptable. And there is a constant motor noise when you turn the camcorder on. However, when I play the video back on my TV you do NOT hear the motor noise (so I can overlook that).

Overall, it's a good camcorder for the price and I would recommend it. It has a lot more pros than cons. Just don't buy it if most of your recording will be in low light.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Camera
I used this camera to take close-up pictures easily at the US Grand Prix Pit Walkabout today and I found it outstanding. Even from distances as far as 100 feet, you can zoom in far enough to see very detailed parts of the cars, like small wires used for telemetry. I highly recommend it, although the battery life is incredibly short and there is next to no space (8MB) on the card I got with it. But this is to be expected.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not a low light camera
As stated many times before by many people this camera does not do well in low light.

Knowing that the camera does very well in well lighted situations. Even turning on extra indoor light will produce acceptable results. I have had no problems with motor noise or audio/video problems.

What makes this camera attractive is the features it has for the price. The digital effects, the chroma keying with the SD card pictures and best of all the digital to analog and analog to digital converter.

The price of this camera puts it in the range of dedicated digital to analog and analog to digital converter. This allows you to transfer old VHS or VHS-C tapes to DV. Cable boxes or TiVos with RCA outputs can also be used. Once on DV they can be transferred to the computer for editing and then burned to CD or DVD. Since it has the onboard converter it can also be used to edit video on a TV screen if your video editor supports it.

The camera also acts as a digital camera but even on the best camcorders the output is not on par with stand-alone digital cameras and is added as an after thought.

If you can live with the cameras low light problems then this camera will do well. If not save your pennies and get a better camera. If your need to get old footage in to your computer to put on DVD then consider this camera. With a Mac it will also work as a web camera without any addition software. If you are shooting a lot of low light footage this is not the camera for you.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Camera for Most Uses....
I really love this camera, it has just the right amount of auto functions mixed with user-defined functions. I like the little extras that come with the camera (including the special effects, various transitions, ability to easily customize the video, etc.) I am a film student at NYU and I bought this camera to shoot the many films that we are required to create (unfortunately there aren't always enough school owned cameras to go around,) and it has worked for me just fine... As for the indoor shooting issues that many have complained about, I've found it to be perfectly fine for me (although I do have the use of lighting equipment that could make any place well lighted,) I suggest propping up a desk lamp and reflecting the light off a white wall or centering the light slightly to the side of the subject (this technique is good for just about all cameras and lighting situations; as long as you don't use too powerful a light and get too close, this creates shadows.) I've not only used this camera for my films, but also for personal uses (like my little brother's birthday party) and it worked perfectly for me. Personally, I really am satisfied with this camera and it's great handling and shooting!

4-0 out of 5 stars Solid Performer
I knew little about camcorders when I bought this. It got mixed reviews, but I've been extremely happy with it. It's simple to use and the video quality is very good. The 20x zoom is a nice feature, as well as the ability to store video on the MiniDV or a SmartCard. I would recommend it to anyone. ... Read more


196. Canon EOS ELAN 7E 35mm SLR Camera Kit w/ 28-90mm Lens

Amazon.com Product Description

The Canon Elan 7E features the eye-controlled focus system, the fastest means of focusing and metering a photographer can find. By using more focusing points and greater off-center coverage than other cameras in its class, this camera is able to take an exact reading in approximately 1/20 of a second. When a photographer brings the camera to their eye, their glance is tracked by the focusing system, allowing framing and focusing to become a single uninterrupted creative process. An easy one-time calibration is all that's needed to activate the eye-controlled focus system. Once this calibration is complete, the camera is able to precisely detect which part of the viewfinder the photographer is using. It then automatically focuses the lens with amazing accuracy.

This system delivers crisp, sharply focused images whether the camera is in a vertical or a horizontal position. The Canon Elan 7E is even able to store the distinct calibrations of up to five different photographers. Using an EF 300mm f2.8 IS lens, it can track a subject moving at 186 mph until it's a mere 66 feet from the camera. This fast-focus system, combined with the ability to shoot at almost four frames per second, makes the Canon Elan 7E the perfect choice for capturing those demanding sporting events or special occasions when you don't want to miss a single moment. And, considering its continuous shooting speed, the Elan 7E is also remarkably quiet. This feature gives the photographer the opportunity to shoot the perfect wildlife scene without disturbing or scaring the subject.

Part of the Elan 7E's focusing system is the seven-point wide-area autofocus. The eye-controlled focus system was designed to work especially with this precision feature. Seven focusing points are arranged in a wide cross pattern with a central "cross-type" sensor. The wider-than-usual area gives the photographer the ability to achieve a remarkably sharp, focused image instantly. This function works whether the subject is off-center, stationary, in motion, in low light, or even in low-contrast situations. The shot will still come out sharp and crisp, and without the need to recompose the shot. By using the focusing-point selection keys, the user is able to select any of the seven focus points simply by pressing a key. Representing a bold innovation in speed and usability, this feature gives an additional amount of image control back to the photographer.

A highly advanced metering system, comprised of 35-zone evaluative metering sensors, is linked to the seven focusing points. Whether shooting indoors or outside, day or night, a seamless integration of exposure and focus ensures remarkable clarity and contrast in any image. This system gives the photographer accurate control over situations that combine light and shadow or that feature strong backlight. When metering subjects against very dark or very bright backgrounds, partial-area metering measures 10 percent of the viewfinder around the chosen focusing point. This provides accurate image results when dealing with shadows or highlights. The photographer can also use the Elan 7E's center-weighed metering function. This mode places greater emphasis on what it reads as the center of the frame by measuring the entire scene. No matter which function the photographer chooses, precision metering is guaranteed--whether the camera is in a vertical or horizontal position.

Giving the photographer even more creative control is the command dial. This allows manual-control light, speed, aperture, and depth of field. Shutter priority lets the photographer choose the shutter speed, while the Elan 7E automatically selects the correct aperture. This function is especially useful when capturing action shots. With aperture priority, the photographer picks the aperture setting while the camera chooses the correct shutter speed. This is helpful when control over the depth of field is essential. Using the eye-controlled focus system to define the "sharp zone," the photographer can calculate the precise depth of field automatically. It's even possible to check the depth of field using the preview button. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great upgrade from EOS rebel but avoid Eye Control
I upgraded to this camera from the EOS Rebel 2000. This time around, I did things right by just buying the body instead of getting the body+lens option. I did this b/c the quality of the lenses that come with the combined package usually are optically a joke. This time, I picked this camera up with 2 separate lenses...Canon 28-135mm IS USM and the Canon 100mm macro USM lenses. Both of these lenses have a super fast and quiet ultrasonic motor...the crappy lens that comes with the combo option will likely not have this option. You get what you pay for.

I am very very pleased with the performance of this camera. The weight feels very good in my hands...the knobs and buttons are well placed. Although this camera does not have a spot meter, it has a partial meter which will serve you fine.

If I could do it all over again, I would have gotten the plain old Elan 7 w/o the eye control. I find that eye control is not effective with only 7 focusing points...also, the need for repeated calibration to perfect this is annoying. I find myself using the center focusing point only and recomposing. Save yourself some cash to spend on lenses/filters/etc. and forget the eye control or the quartz date options.

While this camera has a very quiet whisper drive, don't let the marketing fool you since the slap of the mirror still sounds the same as you trigger the shutter.

Love this camera...it doesn't feel flimsy at all. Great buy for an intermediate photographer. I would also recommend picking up the 420EX speedlite as it was designed to work specifically with the Elan 7/7e.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great new SLR from Canon
I've been a many years user of Canon cameras. My latest EOS 630 served me very well for the last 12 years.

Needless to say i was very excited when I got this one. The user interface is very well done. The controls are very easy to use and located in convinient places.

The film advancing motor is very quit, in fact the shutter door sounds much louder then the film advancing.

Build-in flash works very well. The red eye feature is much better than on any other camera, since it doesn't flash the flash light but uses a special bulb for that.

I highly recommend to get 28-135 IS USM lens with it. The image stabilization worth the extra money, since it allows you to take pictures in very low light without flash or tripod.

I didn't found the eye-controlled AF very usefull. It's nice as a toy, but you can live without it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very Happy Canon User
I read the previous reviews and agree with most everything. This is a great camera that can be easily used by a beginner but has the features wanted by experienced pros.

The one thing I was disapointed in is that it did not say anywhere, until I already purchased the "E" model and read the manual, that the EYE CONTROL DOES NOT WORK IF YOU WEAR CONATCT LENSES. The "E" model was a waste of money for me due to this and that is the reason I gave this camera 4 out of the 5 stars.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic beginners camera
For the record, I have been using this camera for over 2 years now and I shoot mainly nature and people.

The Canon Elan 7E/EOS30 is a fantastic all around camera for beginners/intermediate photographers.

At the time of buying this camera, there was a confusion whether to choose the rebel or the elan 7E. I would very strongly recommend anyone to consider buying the intermediate Elan 7 as compared to the basic rebel. The rebel has a very "plasticky" feel to it and if I remember correctly, there is a single knob to set both the aperture and the shutter speed. Once you move away from shooting it as point and shoot, you will realize that the single knob can get incredibely irritating.

As for the "E" i.e. eye focus, I never really used it too much but am planning to shortly. So you can save some money by getting the Elan 7, if you so wish since the Eye feature is essentially just a gimmick. Now I also wish I had got the date feature, since down the road it might be an useful tool. (say, 40 yrs, from now, you want to know when the picture was taken ;) )

The most wonderful thing about the ELan 7E is that it allows you to grow with it...It offers a whole bunch of features, that I think will take you from a beginning stage (point and shoot) to a more advanced stage (total manual) phase. After shooting over 20 rolls of film and slide, I still find myself reading the manual and noting down some new feature to try out on my next roll.

Small piece of advice for beginners.. I realize now that the money you spend on lenses might be worth almost more than the money you spend on the camera. Coz even the best camera cannot produce a decent picture with a bad lens. I would strongly recommend avoiding the standard lens(28-90mm, I think) that comes bundled with it (even if the total package is cheap). I bought the body separate and then a canon 28-105 f/3.5-4.5 lens and I have never regretted the decision. Its a relatively sharp lens at both ends and is always mounted on my camera for shooting almost anything. If you are on a tight budget get the Canon 50 mm 1.8 II which sells in most shops for under $100. I am now slowly saving up for a L series lens.

Besides the usual preset options like portrait,landscape,closeup,sports,night mode,the Elan 7E offers a whole bunch of features that I found really useful. Here are some of them,

1) Depth of field preview button.
2) DEP (depth of field AE) - this really helps if your lens does not have a distance scale (like the 28-105mm). Say for e.g., you need to preset the depth of scale from 0 to infinity, this feature helps you to achieve that effect without the distance scale on your lens.
3) AE lock
4) Exposure compensation - you can set the exposure compensation upto + or - 2 stops in half stop increments and you can do it without taking your eyes of the viewfinder.
5) Auto exposure bracketting - for those really important pictures that you dont want to miss :)
6) bulb exposures - allows you to have as long a exposure as you want. I found this really useful. I hear that some cameras have limitations on how long they can be exposed. (RS - 60E3 shutter release cable is really useful for this)
7) multiple exposures
8) mirror lockup etc etc etc.

The built in flash suffices for all my needs. Lots of people in this website recommend the battery pack, but I would suggest anyone buying this camera to first check it out themselves. I find the grip good enough for me.

All in all, I just love this camera. I have been having great fun for past 2 yrs with it and am confident of having lots more fun for few more years at least and I dont think you will get a better performance for this price...If you have the money, just get it & start shooting !!

Strengths:
1) Solid feel and good looks
2) Enough bells and whistles to keep you curious and interested for quite some time.
3) focussing point selection with seven focussing points (auto or manual)
4) whole bunch of lenses to choose from
5) built in flash
6) Rugged build - have used extensively in real hot weather(AZ) as well as sub zero temperatures (MI)
7)Relatively light and compact.
8)Best price/performance ratio

Weaknesses:
1) I feel an LCD would have been invaluable tool to have during low-lit situations
2)Lack of spot metering - this is one feature I would have loved to use.
3)Auto focus fails to activate when you try to shoot closeups(macros), cloudy landscapes or under low light situations

4) Depth of field preview button is hidden...I have never been able to activate it without taking my eyes off the viewfinder !

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Camera for Everyone!
I bought this camera in the summer of 2003 which was when I started my photography endeavor. This camera has been awesome for everything that I have done from practice portraiture, landscape, close up, and everything that I was able to thow at it. I still constantly use this camera as it still continues to intrigue me with its abilities.

Many, and I say MANY people complain online about the lense that is given in the kit. For the work that I have done, and the work that most amature to "prosumer" photographers do, you will not be so extremely dissapointed about this lense. I do have the EF 50mm f/1.8, which is awesome!

The Rebel GII is also extremely light to carry around, especially when compared to older manual type SLR's. Sure, its not as light as a point and shoot but its NOT a point and shoot, its a great SLR. As I advance more in Photography, by December 2004 I'll be buying the Elan 7Ne to meet all of my photo needs. Due to the weight though, the Rebel will be my more rugged body for those shoots that I don't want to risk ruining the Elan. Great camera overall, go buy it!

5-0 out of 5 stars I love this camera
I just got my camera for Christmas and I love it. The quality is great, and it's so lightweight! Gotta have it if you're into photography...great starter camera.

4-0 out of 5 stars Decent Entry Level Camera
My personal background: I've owned several Point & Shoot cameras, both digital and film, as well as an old SLR back when I was in high school. I'm a decent photographer and since I bought this camera in late August (now early November) I've shot probably around 400+ frames.

If you want to shoot in manual mode, this camera works wonderfully. The only downsides I've found is a tendency to under expose by about 1/3 stop and the 1 fps maximum. If you don't need high speed photography and can learn to compensate for the exposure (or take your film to a lab that does) there isn't a reason to buy any other Rebel.

If you use the various auto modes (landscape, portrait, etc.) you'll find the camera works pretty well. Using these modes I can hand the camera over to a family member and expect the photo to come out reasonably well.

The only serious downfall to this kit is the lens. It is about as crummy as lenses come. The photos look fine at 4x6, but if you blow them up, you'll notice they aren't very sharp. The good news is that when your skill develop enough that you realize this, you can go out and buy that nice 24-85mm zoom and 50mm prime and they'll work wonderfully. Expensive bodies are for people with money burning wholes in their pocket. This one is for you. :)

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to use! Excellent Pictures
I purchased this camera based on reviews from several different scrapbooking message boards. Scrapbookers know their cameras as their hobby is all about GREAT pictures. I have an old Canon AE-1 Program that I purchased 18 years ago and I am a big fan of digital camera. I have an Olympus C-50.

The Canon Rebel takes awesome shots. I took it to Disney World and did not take one bad shot. I used Kodak High Density film. The camera is so easy to use. The telephoto feature worked really well. In the auto mode it works like a point and shoot, but the pictures cannot be compared to a regular point and shoot camera. I am not the best photographer in the world, but this makes me look like I am. You won't be disappointed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for beginners, but product specs are wrong...
I recently purchased the Rebel G II and have found it to be a great camera for a beginner who wishes to move beyond simple point and click cameras. Amazon.com has recently dropped the price (May, 2003) to put it in a more comparable range with other sellers of the same camera, but I noticed that the spec sheet has some wrong information. For example, this camera DOES have a self-timer whereas the amazon.com specifications page states it does not. I can attest, the self-timer works well, I have used it many times already since I bought the Rebel G II. Also, the specs page says you can't imprint the date & time on pictures, but you can. It's all explained in the user's manual when you buy the camera. Go to the Canon Homepage and see for yourself if you don't believe me. Don't let the wrong information by amazon.com scare you away from this camera. It has alot of automatic settings (action shots, portraits, close-ups, landscapes) for beginners to use, and it has the capabilities for advanced photographers to use shutter speed, aperture and manual settings to control their shots. The pictures are looking great (I've shot athletes in full sprint and got great looking shots and done hiking and gotten beautiful close-ups of birds/flowers as well as wide landscapes). This camera takes great shots, is easy to use and is a great 1st step for a beginning photographer. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Inconsistent
I bought this camera about 10 months ago and have taken it on 4 vacations. It has been terribly inconsistent. I've only gotten consistent photos on 1 trip; the photos of the other 3 trips have been a major disappointment. I usually only use my camera for vacation, and clear, beautiful pictures are very important to me. My photos of Hawaii and London were dark, unfocused, and overall just not good. I use the same place and same people to develop my photos. I take a digital camera along on all my trips, and my digital photos turn out amazing; the digital photos are usually taken right after my film photos, so their subjected to the same conditions as the film.
My mother has a Canon Sure Shot 115 and it takes great photos, so I thought I would give Canon a try. I had a Minolta Freedom Zoom 140, and I believe it takes better photos than this Canon, and the Minolta was doused in sea water on a cruise!

Overall, for this amount of money, I would shop around. This camera is just too inconsistent. Also, I have problems with it wanting to focus "lock" on a subject, and if it won't lock, you can't take a picture. The zoom is also very noisy.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent camera ,highly recommended!
I was surprised to read all the negative reviews about the canon z155. My own experience with this camera has been basically positive. Since purchasing the camera 7 months ago, the majority of my prints have been sharp, clear, colors bright and true to life. The only drawback i can think of is the pictures do tend to blur when using full zoom without a tripod. I dont think this is specifically Canon's problem, though, because photography books all recommend using a tripod when using a high zoom. At 155mm, one needs a very steady hand or the pictures blur. When I do use a tripod, even my pictures at the highest zoom come out crystal clear. I'd recommend this camera anytime!

2-0 out of 5 stars Inconsistent
Although my canon rebel SLR is incredible and we've had great canon's before, this one is very disappointing and inconsistent. I've had the same problems as others with blurry pictures and delays in taking photos after pushing the button. I'd recommend finding another camera or upgrading to a SLR from Canon (though pricey).

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Camera - Fun Features - Excellent Pictures
Bought this camera in a pinch as our old one broke two days before Christmas. Didn't get a chance to read the reviews here first (and I'm glad I didn't or I probably would not have bought it!). I quickly snapped a roll of 24-exposure film to try the camera out and see if we wanted to keep it.

The pictures came out BEAUTIFULLY! I took some indoors, some out. Some with the fully automatic point-and-shoot, and expermimented with the potrait mode, sports action mode, and night mode. They all came out fantastically!

It's like having two cameras in one - a fully automatic no-brainer point and shoot as well as some features that allow you to be more creative and experimental with photography if you want to. Also a great zoom.

Canon must have corrected the issues that some of the eariler reviewers posted, because I did not experience any of these problems.

1-0 out of 5 stars Worst camera ever
I am so glad after seeing the other reviews to know that I'm not crazy- this camera really is awful! The inconsistent quality of photos is dreadful, with many underlit and blurry for no clear reason. I love my other Cannon and wish they would stay away from making such supposedly "smart" cameras. ... Read more
