5-0 out of 5 stars Canon Triumphs Again!
This is the successor to the EOS Elan 7. It is what the Elan 7 could have been, should have been, and, finally, is. Though the Elan 7 didn't leave much to be desired, there were a couple of modifications that would have made it the perfect camera for intermediate to advanced photographers. These improvements are an illuminated external LCD, better light metering, and faster AF.

The new finish and emblems are gorgeous. The finish is extremely matte, so it's very dark and handsome, and the Elan 7n logo is now a relief on a plaque attached to the body that's also holographic, instead of the painted on white and red logo of the old Elan 7. Though this has nothing to do with its ability to produce amazingly focused and metered images, it sure makes it one heck of an attractive body.

It is arguably one of the quietest 35mm SLR cameras ever made, and I agree. Its whisper drive film transport produces noise so quiet you can only hear it if your ear is pressed right to the body. The mirror and shutter action, though audible, are also well below the sound levels heard in most other cameras. It makes the higher-end Canons, and just about all 35mm Nikons, Minoltas, and Pentaxes sound like gun shots by comparison. Also, when the silent film rewind option is set in the camera's custom functions, this, too, cannot be heard without pressing one's ear to the body. But, even its high-speed film rewind is quiet, if you ask me, and it takes only 5 seconds to rewind a 24-exposure roll of film!

Its auto-focus system is the fastest any Elan has ever seen. It can track things moving at a whopping 31 miles per hour at close distances! Trust me, this is fast! Only the rarest of sporting events would pose a challenge to this camera's AF system.

Its light metering, especially its new E-TTL II flash metering, is almost frighteningly intelligent and accurate. When used with an EX series Speedlite, the camera uses distance information from the lens plus its readings from the 35-zone light meter (both from an ambient light reading and a pre-flash reading) to calculate an appropriate flash exposure. This works in much the same way Nikon's 3D-matrix metering does, so, now, Nikon has some good competition in this category. I find that my Canon Elan 7n with the 420EX Speedlite produces exposures that are just as beautiful as those produced by Nikon systems. And, the high-speed flash sync is wonderful, because I can shoot with wide-open apertures and not worry about not being able to use the flash with the higher shutter speeds that result.

Its shooting speed is a grin-inducing 4 frames per second. Even the EOS 3 only does 3.5 fps without the incredibly expensive power booster with the Ni-MH battery pack, and the Nikon N80 only does about 2.5 frames per second. Oh, and you can get a battery pack for the Elan 7n (the BP-300) that will let you use AA batteries while providing you with an extended horizontal grip for better stability, a vertical grip for more comfortable work in the vertical orientation, and vertical shutter release and exposure lock buttons. Even the Nikon N-80 doesn't offer a vertical grip or shutter release with its battery pack.

This camera features mirror lockup, with the ability to use the RC-1 or RC-5 infrared wireless shutter remote. So, now, not only do you not get camera shake from the mirror going up during macro photography, but you also don't have to touch anything attached to the camera such as a shutter release cable, which could also cause camera shake. That's awesome.

The Elan 7n also lets you customize its settings and performance with 13 custom functions. This includes mirror lockup (another feature missing from the Nikon N80 or lower-end Canons), leaving the film leader out after rewinding it, controlling what the various buttons on the body do, as well as how the camera controls auto-focus assist lights, the flash, etc.

And, let's not forget its 7-point wide-area auto-focus, with selectable points and light metering being linked to the selected focus point.

All of these features, plus several I didn't even mention, make for extremely reliable point-and-shoot simplicity for the casual or inexperienced photographer who wants to get great shots without the hassle of learning all the stuff that's involved in true hands-on photography, yet the camera provides more features than even the pros can shake a stick at. And, it does it for around $300.00, which is 1/3 to 1/4 of the cost of comparable bodies.

Canon has triumphed once again!

PRO's:

-Durable
-Reliable
-Affordable
-Fast
-Quiet
-Exceptionally accurate (both in focusing and metering)
-Packed with features
-Stylish
-Compatible with a very nice line of accessories

CON's:

-My only complaint about this camera is its lack of a real focus assist beam. Most of the EOS bodies have built-in near-infrared focus assist lights that project patterns of vertical, horizontal, or combinations of both lines onto the subject for low-light and low-contrast AF operation. Why on Earth Canon decided to make the Elan 7/7n's built-in flash the AF assist light seems to defy all conventional logic and wisdom. First, it fires a short but rapid burst of flashes that are not only annoying to the user, but generally frightening to living subjects (I used it in a restaurant once with my Elan 7, and people actually screamed in terror...I've since learned to disable this in the custom functions...in fact, it was the first CF I set when I got the Elan 7n). Second, if it's being used for low-contrast subjects, well, it just doesn't help there at all, because it doesn't add any contrasting patterns for the AF system to focus on. However, when you attach an external flash, this problem is usually solved, because most dedicated flash units have focus assist beams. ... Read more


162. Canon PowerShot A40 2MP Digital Camera w/ 3x Optical Zoom

Amazon.com Product Description

Despite its entry-level designation in Canon's digital lineup, the2-megapixel A40 is a surprisingly advanced model with excellent picture qualityand more manual features than you'll find on most digital point-and-shoots.

Resolution
With resolutions of up to 5 megapixels now available in other cameras, the2-megapixel chip in the A40 may seem wimpy, but for the camera's intended user,2 million pixels is a great balance between performance and price. Thisresolution means gorgeous full-screen images on your computer (even with a19-inch monitor) and prints that look great at sizes up to 8 by 10 inches. Ifyou're hoping for a camera that captures even detail in each photo, considerCanon's 3-megapixel S30 or 4-megapixel S40.

Optics
A 3x optical zoom lens (35-105mm equivalent) aids in photo composition, and anadditional 2.5x digital zoom (7.5x total) further magnifies your image.Remember, however, that digital zoom reduces the sharpness and detail of yourimage, so it's best used sparingly. Two systems help ensure your pictures willbe perfectly focused, even in challenging conditions: a multizone autofocusworks even when the subject of your photo isn't in the center of the scene, andin low-light situations (a particular weakness of many digital cameras), afocus-assist lamp sends out a small patterned beam to help the camera accuratelydetermine distance.

More Features
Though it's primarily designed as a point-and-shoot, the A40 includes asurprising number of advanced features for photographers who want more creativecontrol, including aperture priority, shutter priority, and full manual modes,exposure compensation, low-light manual shutter speeds, manual ISO and whitebalance, and stitch assist, plus black-and-white, sepia, vivid, and neutralmodes.

A movie mode captures video clips with sound. Depending upon resolution, theseclips can last from 10 to 30 seconds. The limited length and resolution of theseclips guarantees that this feature won't replace your camcorder, but it'sperfect for when you just want to capture a quick movie and e-mail it to afriend or relative.

The A40 is the successor to last year's A20. Physically, the two cameras arenearly identical, but the new model has substantially more manual controls and amovie mode.

Power
The A40 uses four AA batteries, and a set of alkalines is included. We don'trecommend using alkaline batteries in digital cameras unless you have noalternative, since the high power demands of digital cameras drain alkalinebatteries ridiculously quickly. Instead, we prefer lithium batteries foroccasional users, since these last much longer and also stay fresh if yourcamera sits unused for months at a time. If you use the camera more than onceevery couple of weeks, we strongly recommend getting a set of rechargeable NiMHbatteries and a charger. These can be recharged hundreds of times and hold anexcellent charge, but will lose their power in as little as a month of disuse.Many people solve this problem by purchasing a charger with two sets ofbatteries, keeping one set in the camera and the other in the charger at alltimes.

Storage and Transfer
Images are stored on standard Type I CompactFlash cards. Consider the included 8MB card a starter capacity, since its 12-picture limit means you'll need toreturn to your computer often to transfer images and free up the card for morepictures. A 128 MB card is a great size for this camera, storing around 200images. To transfer images to your computer, simply attach the included USBcable between your PC and your camera. Your computer should automaticallyrecognize your camera and let you move the pictures to your hard drive.

Printing
Canon has introduced a series of printers designed to work directly with theA40. Using these printers, no computer is required--simply connect the camera tothe printer and start printing. The CP-10 produces credit-card-sized prints, andthe CP-100 makes 4-by-6-inch prints. Both use continuous-tone technology forresults that are indistinguishable from traditional photos. Of course, photosfrom your camera can also be printed on any home computer system with an inkjetprinter, sent off for online processing, or simply enjoyed on your computerscreen.

Size
Dimensions of 4.3 by 2.8 by 1.5 inches put the A40 in the middle of thecompact-camera pack. The plastic body keeps weight down to 8.8 ounces.

Contents and Recommended Accessories

The package includes the A40 camera, AV and USB cables, wrist strap, printedmanual, software suite, four AA batteries, and an 8 MB memory card.

Everything you need to get started is included in the box, but a few well-chosenaccessories can help you get even more from your camera. We strongly recommendthe addition of a larger memory card (a 128 MB card holds around 200 images), aset of rechargeable batteries, and a carrying case. A broad array of additionalaccessories are available, including a waterproof housing, an adapter forthreaded lenses, and more. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Impressive Camera
I'm new to digital photography and was very impressed with Canon's A40. The camera has similar features to the proven A20 model, but distinguishes itself in several ways.

For example, the A40 feels solid and is very attractive. It also captures 10-30 second movie clips in AVI format which can be played on Quicktime. The movie images are a bit grainy, but movements and sounds are captured quite well. Using some software which was included with the A40, I was able to convert the AVI clips into MPEG and view them on my PocketPC. Finally, the camera is less expensive than the A20, but delivers the same quality images.

My experience with the A40 pictures is that 2Mexapixels are fine. The clarity of the images is remarkable. And making short movie clips is an added benefit to getting the A40.

For the price and photo quality, the A40 is an exceptional product and deserves everyone of its 5 stars.

5-0 out of 5 stars Don't Buy 4 Megapixels Yet!
This thing is sweeeet!!

For the price you can't beat the Canon A40. Sure it's a 2MP camera but holy smokes folks! Look at what you get..

Tons of manual features such as f-stop tweaking and 3X optical zoom, sepia, B&W, AE/AF, 1.5" Sony display, program and full auto modes as well. It has great looks, positive feedback and total functionality. It performs and looks like a real down to business camera...not like those other chic lookin' wannabe, thin style digital cameras out there.

I have looked at all the ~2.0 megapixel cameras available for the past year. I decided to buy Canon as the leader in digital photography. Prices recently dropped for the A40. I told myself one year ago that I would buy a digital camera when the 2MP's hit three hundred dollars. After all the haggling with the sales person for additional accessories was over, I ran out of the [store's] doors. Also picked up a SanDisk 128MB CompactFlash card at [local store]. I am going to invest in a premium leather case soon and will probably look at waterproof hard cases to protect my investment. When 4MP cameras with the same features drop to under three hundred dollars. in the future then I will make my next Canon purchase. I believe from reading other peoples testimonies that this camera is definitely worth your hard earned cash...

It's a Canon!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Camera at a Great Price
PROS:
The Cannon A40 is definately a good quality digital camera at a good price. Compatible with the latest PC Windows versions (except for Windows Professional 2000) although specifically designed for Windows XP which is good since almost ever PC sold in retail stores today comes with Windows XP. Very easy to install in your computer. The software runs itself. Very easy to take excellent quality pictures. Photos look great even when printing on standard paper with a standard Inkjet printer. Large variety of photo functions. Automatic focus. Good automatic lighting capabilities with various flash options for taking excellent pictures at night. Colors and subjects are rich and clear. Pictures don't look animated. Short movie capabilities. Red-eye removal. Self timer. 3x Zoom option. A very durable and attractive camera. Good quality brand name.

CONS:
Weighs a little more and not as compact as similar cameras with the same capabilities. Software provided doesn't allow for many adjustment options to pictures taken when transferred to PC. Instruction booklet is long and a little intimidating. Camera itself only comes with a 8MB Compact Flash Card(about 8 photos). Need to buy another Card with a larger memory. Batteries drain quickly (which is true with almost every digital camera). Doesn't come with carrying case. Menus on LCD screen are not very user friendly while controls on the back of the camera are a little too busy and intimidating. Not a camera for people who don't like to read instructions.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Picture Quality - Great for Average User
I have been shopping for a digital camera for about 6 months now and was told that I should get at least a 3-4MP camera. Since I had not been able to afford one yet, I borrowed this camera from my father and took it on vacation with me. It was quick to learn, easy to use, convenient and had all the features I needed. The most surprising thing was the quality of the photos when I got back home. It self adjusted so well to different lighting and there isn't a single photo out of the 180 that I took that needs to be adjusted. The print quality was crisp and smooth (I did not expect them to be since it was only 2MP). I printed my photos to 4x6 and they are great. I am really pleased with the camera and will be buying one for myself soon. There is no need to spend hundreds of dollars more when this camera has everything the average person needs.

5-0 out of 5 stars I wouldn't own ANY other Digital Camera!
I searched reviews information and asked tons of ?'s before making my decision to purchase this camera. And I am so happy to own it. I am not an expert at digital or computer stuff and this camera was so easy to use. I have replaced my 35mm & 110 camera with this camera. I purchased some rechargeable batteries and a ac adapter & it has been great! Very pleased! I'm not one for reading instructions and I just read enough to operate, If I were to sit down and read the rest I'd be able to do even more with my camera.

This is the best camera out there! Originally I was going to purchase the A20, but found that it was going to be discontinued so I went with it's replacement (and I love it!). I sell a bit on ebay and this is a great easy to use camera that takes super pictures! If your planning to purchase I'd purchase this camera or one of it's newer ones for better picture (I'm sure the newer ones of this brand are even better - but they will stick to the basics and keep it easy to use). I paid more than what it's going for now, but that's technology for you. Anyways, I rate 5 star due to easy use, small camera (can take to party's and such), and it's a great replacement (to get rid of those camera's that use film). I have saved tons of money just on not buying film! ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

With a stunning combination of resolution, speed and control, all housed in a rugged, elegant new black enclosure, the PowerShot G5 takes the lead as Canon's flagship PowerShot. With a host of improvements and professional features, the PowerShot G5 will exceed the expectations of even the most discerning photographer.

Optics and Resolution
The PowerShot G5 uses a 5.0 Megapixel CCD sensor, providing a file with 2,592 x 1,944 pixels for stunning clarity and color in even your biggest enlargements of up to 20x30 inches in size. Primary color filters reduce noise while enhancing the natural colors of the scene photographed. At the heart of the PowerShot G5 is Canon's powerful 4x optical, 4x digital zoom lens. With a 35mm equivalent range of 35 – 140mm, a large maximum aperture of f/2.0 – 3.0, and macro focusing down to 2 inches, there's virtually nothing this lens can't do. A 4x digital zoom feature extends the telephoto capabilities even further, effectively making it a 16x zoom.

The PowerShot G5 achieves sharp focus with both single and continuous focusing systems, perfect for any photography from sports to still life. With two types of AF, including FlexiZone, where the user defines the focus point anywhere in the composition, and a unique focus-bracketing feature, the PowerShot G5 can achieve perfect focus anywhere.

Storage and Transfer
Images are stored on CompactFlash Type I or Type II cards in uncompressed RAW format or one of three compressed JPEG formats. The camera uses a USB 1.1 interface and also outputs NTSC or PAL video with monaural sound. It can connect directly to Canon Card Photo Printer and select BJ Printers.

Movie Mode
It is possible to record video with mono sound in either 320x240 or 160x120 resolution. Total recording time varies depending on the size of the installed storage media, but individual clips may not exceed three minutes in length regardless of the available storage space.

More Features
The G5's DIGIC Imaging Processor revolutionizes how you shoot digital by allowing the camera to process images faster and improving the accuracy of the autofocus. DIGIC also reduces the effects on noise in your images. The camera also incorporates Canon's iSAPS scene-recognition technology. Using an internal database of thousands of different photos, iSAPS works with the fast DIGIC Imaging Processor to improve focus speed and accuracy, as well as exposure and white balance.

Other features include:

  • Intelligent Orientation Sensor can tell whether you shot your photo vertically or horizontally
  • 12 EOS-based Shooting Modes, including two user-defined custom modes
  • The user controls every aspect of the shot, including aperture and shutter speed
  • Compatible with Canon Direct Printing technology
  • 1.8-inch TFT LCD

Power and Size
The G5 uses an included rechargeable Lithium-ion battery that allows for up to 360 minutes of playback time or enough time to take approximately 450 pictures with the LCD turned on. The camera measures 4.76 x 2.91 x 2.75 inches and weighs 14.5 ounces without batteries or storage media installed.

What's in the Box
The camera comes with a lens cap, neck strap, AV cable, remote control, and 32 MB CompactFlash card that can store approximately 32 compressed images. It also includes a BP-511 Li-ion rechargeable battery pack, an AC adapter, a USB interface cable, and two software CD-ROMs. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars MUST to READ, G5 for all, or just like any other CANON
Hi everybody.

I may make few spelling mistakes, but my review for G5 is sharp, true and clear.
Let's get started. I bought G5 and I am happy about it. I red prefessional reviews and comparisons and let me tell you something. Regardless what they say about purple fireing and increased noise, canon G5 gets the sharpest and cleanest picture of 5 megapixel sensor out there. I even compared it with fuifilm s7000 (6.4 megapixel camera), G5 brings more details and better colors. The shapes of the objects are original and edges don't diffuse like all other cameras of this price range (+ - $200) except canon digital rebel 300D. All other cameras have problems either with their not enough bright lenses or not as good CCD sensor. They all try to compete with canon and this is how cheap they do it...>
They run noise reduction algorithms before the picture is being saved in memory and their pictures loose lots of details, objects loose edges and their pictures look more like a painting. This is why canon has the sharpest picture. If you take orginal G5 photo in photoshop and do noise reduction, the resulting picture will have a micro low noise, far less than any sony, nicon, olympus, or anything else out there, while still keeping the sharpest picture compared to all cameras above. The profesional reviewers fall for this as I can see from what I am reading, and they rate canon g5 as having the sharpest picture but worst noise, sending wrong message to readers about the canon true quality. In fact canon g5 original picture has far the least noise from its 1.8 inch CCD, however canon technicians don't run noise reduction algorithms and leave this option up for users. Or just do this - set up low sharpness mode and you will get the most noise free pics compared to the competition while still being the sharpest.
If you ask me I prefer high sharpness, which increases the noise slightly, but improves the contrast and sharpness of the picture. When you print out picture like this you will get the best looking prints since noise levels come in question only if you zoom in the picture in your computer, but for the droplets of the printer good color and sharpness is what counts the most for best prints.
If you are looking for better quality and original noise free pictures buy digital rebel 300D. I didn't buy this camera only because my dad would kill me thinking that I spent a lot of money for a camera. Another reason was that this one is smaller and fits very tight in a little bag, making it perfect for "bring me anywhere" while having the image of a turist and photo satisfaction of a pro.

Made one mistake though....>>>>>>

Didn't look at canon S50 - the best value on the market. I give it 6 stars for the price matched with its quality, size and weight.

Listen to me. Buy S50 today - or wait for even better deals.

5-0 out of 5 stars Gets the Big Things Right
Bought the G5 after an intensive search, comparing w comparably priced Nikon, Sony, Olympus, among others, having owned the Olympus 3040 for several years.
The G5 has a few quirks that some enjoy beating Canon up over: yes, on wide angle shots looking through the viewfinder you see a (small) piece of the lens; yes, the G5's major enhancement over the G3 is a mere megapixel; and some speak of noise at higher ISOs and chromatic aberration in some pics that one would not expect in a $600 digital.

I haven't seen a hint of noise (shooting primarily at 50 or 100 ISO) or chromatic aberration after hundreds of pictures, and one quickly adapts to the tiny piece of lens one sees in the viewfinder at the wide angle.

How about what's right?
1) great pics--vibrant, detailed and sharp
2) a fabulously flexible LCD that makes taking pictures from any angle a breeze (not to mention the delight my 5 year old gets in seeing herself as I take the pic.
3) excellent, easy-to-use software, light years ahead of the Olympus software I had been using
4) coherent, reasonably well written and helpful manuals
5) wealth of exciting and genuinely useful features--including ability to convert a shot to RAW after you've taken it, 4X optical zoom (35-140), easy menus to navigate, controls that make sense on the camera body, great panorama function (with excellent software--it works!), strong flash (for a compact), and a whole lot more.
This camera delivers high quality pics, sophisticated features, a well-designed body at a size that still fits in the pocket and all at a reasonable price, given what you get. Highly recommended!

4-0 out of 5 stars After a year, no regrets.
The lens seen through the view finder I knew about before purchase so I cant complain about that.

The Selector icons (auto, portrait etc.,)wore off after only a couple of months!! Cannon did replace the selector gratis, and I have now protected the icons on the top of the selector with a two part slow setting resin (72 hrs), this looks good and works perfectly.

Apart from the above this is a great Camera and I have been very happy with it and have taken thousands of great pictures in the year I have had it.

My friends wish they had my Camera and when they pull out their fancy Samsungs, HP's etc., there faces soon drop when they see what mine can do.

4-0 out of 5 stars Worked for me
The camera has worked ok for me. I have been using it in my plastic surgery practice and it hasn't let me down so far. However there are a few short comings. First, it didnt come with a bag and i still havent found a suitable bag for it. Pretty mean of Canon ppl. Secondly the auto focus is sometimes frustratingly slow and sometimes just doesnt work. Third the flash is not good enough for indoors. It leaves the corners of the pictures dark.
Having said that....overall its a good camera and does give good pictures

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Camera out there!!!
I bought the Canon G5 about 3 months ago, best digital camera i ever owned. I still have my ELPH S230 which I carry around all the time, but this one is capable of fully automatic settings, you can everything with this little gem. I do not know why the lens cap falling off bugs people so much, would you rather take that great shot with the lens cap on? I would give this camera 6 stars if I could. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Copiers don't have to be big and expensive to make great copies. With Canon's PC430 personal copier, you can get clean and clear copies from a small, relatively inexpensive unit, in your own home or small office.

To set up the Canon PC430 photocopier, we opened the copier's cover, took out the toner cartridge, removed the protective sealing tape, reinserted the toner cartridge, closed the copier's cover, and plugged in the AC power cord. The copier was ready to make copies without needing even a short warm-up period.

In our test of the PC430, we copied a variety of documents, and, in most cases, the black-and-white copies were nearly indistinguishable from the black-and-white originals. There were no unexpected smudges or grains unless the originals contained colors or shades of gray. For detailed images and photographs, the automatic exposure system consistently made copies that were too dark; so we turned off the automatic system with the touch of a button, and adjusted the exposure by turning a dial--and saw dramatic improvement.

The copier is rated at four ppm, which is slow for an office copier but consistent with copiers in this price range.

Pros:

  • Easy setup
  • Intuitive controls
  • Instant warm-up
  • Toner cartridge included

Cons

  • Slow copy rate

5-0 out of 5 stars good buy
After fighting for several years with all in one printer/fax/copier machines, I decided to buy seperate components to do these specific jobs. The Canon PC430 was my choice as a copier and I amd very pleased with it. I does it's job very well for small business use with small to moderate copy jobs. It's a simple machine and compact enough to fit on the desktop. The set up is easy. The copies are perfect reproductions of the originals. No frills just does the job it's designed to do.

3-0 out of 5 stars Copier
I bought this copier several years ago and it has work well for me. I like that it can also do legal size paper. It does take up alot of desk space due to the two paper trays. I think that there are better choices now. This copier doesn't have an internal paper tray, doc. feeder, or enlargement of image.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best! No scanner even comes close!
If your looking for a copy machine, and have been settling for a scanner instead then sell your scanner and pick up a Cannon PC420 or PC430 copier. (I bought the 430 but tested the 420.)

The copies are nice and crisp. With text it will even do perfect copies of text in 8-point font. For pictures it will copy fine. Not perfect, some edges will appear pixilated, good enough for a teacher to make copies from a book for students to do. Yet not good enough for a critical sales or marketing presentation. If you copy from workbooks or textbooks the PC430 will pay for itself in just a few months. No more hassles of waiting or paying on a per copy basis.

The PC430 can have some trouble when you have many gray or offgray boxes that are small. It will smudge the edges but not considerably. For the price though it is perfect, you would have to pay 10x as much for a copier that doesn't do this.

Being able to hit the Power button and begin to copy is unbelivable. No warm up! If you are used to using $10,000 copiers that take minutes to warm up when you only need one or two copies this is a godsend.

All in all this is one of the best home or homeoffice products you can buy. It works as advertised and is simple to operate. In today's world of gizmos and gadgets that is saying alot.

4-0 out of 5 stars Small, portable, inexpensive- everything I wanted
It can be carried around to seminars easily. I take mine to quilting classes, so we can copy "foundation papers" for everyone to try. Share recipes. Drag it to a class and when the teacher runs out of handouts, offer to make more on the spot. (If you don't want to carry it "naked," it fits in the larger courier bags, and if yours is the kid that has a zipper that expands it to 8" depth, you can carry a ream of paper too, although it gets heavy.)

When not carting it around for such uses, it takes up remarkably little space on a home desk or shelf. The tray folds up. Ours has been quite resistant to pet fur- we have to be careful with any devices, to see that rabbit fur does not get in the moving parts; we find rabbit fur in our printers, rabbit fur floating on monitors, rabbit fur in the keyboards, rabbit fur in the gas stove burners- but so far, no rabbit fur has gotten inside this copier, and the lid has been good enough to keep rabbit fur off the glass surface.

A copier that's portable and pet-resistant, and inexpensive to boot; if it weren't for the slow speed I'd give it 5 stars instead of 4.

Amazon.com Review

At just over a pound, the lightweight ZR40 from Canon makes an excellent camcorder for the beginning digital-video enthusiast. This compact and comfortable camcorder offers high-end features found on much more expensive cameras, yet is easy enough to use that a novice can begin filming right away.

The camera is sleekly designed, and pieces pop out of the ZR40 from all sides. On top, the adjustable lens viewer also slides in and out so you don't have to hold the camera too close when filming. You can also use the 2.5-inch LCD screen, which swings out of the left side of the ZR40. It also twists and can be flipped over, providing myriad filming angles.

While we were suitably impressed with the image of our capture video, the sound of the camera's motor could be heard during some of the playback. It's a minor annoyance, which can be overcome with an optional external microphone.

With an 18X optical zoom (as well as 360X digital) intuitively placed next to the right thumb, the ZR40 is able to get up close to the subjects you're filming. Canon's image stabilizer worked well at correcting the "shake" common to handheld cameras. And the camera functions as a digital camera as well, taking snapshots in addition to video.

The ZR40 offers a variety of connectivity options, including FireWire ports, composite AV, and S-video. You can input from an analog source such as a VCR, TV, or camcorder and convert the signal into digital video. It also ships with a handy remote control (with a range of 16 feet) that handles the record functions and can even zoom the lens in and out.

Various special effects modes are incorporated into the camera as well, in addition to a new low-light mode that allowed us to shoot footage in the evening. There are DV cameras out there that do more than this one, but for most users, the ZR40 does plenty and does it well. --J. Curtis

  • Compact and comfortable
  • Easy to use

4-0 out of 5 stars Great with a couple of minor complaints
Expecting a baby, I did research for about three weeks before I ended up with this Canon ZR40. Couple of features that I wanted to have were external mic input, analog input, no still images since I already own a nice digital camera, and most of all, affordable price tag. Amazingly, ZR40 had this all! 18x zoom is nice and its compact size is pretty neat. Still, I have minor complaints after extensive tests.

1. As pointed out by many people previously, the picture is somewhat grainy specially indoors. Because this is my first digital camcorder, I don't know if this happens for other high-end models, but I suspect it may stand out somewhat more for ZR40 with only 480K CCD pixels.
2. What has also been noted was the motor noise, which is my primary concern for now. Maybe, I would not been able to tell if I had not read those reviews, but I could certainly hear the noise when recorded in a quiet environment. I tried to use an external microphone to remove the noise, in which case the noise is gone, but the external microphone does not match the internal microphone in sensitivity. (I used a low-end microphone for the test with the sensitivity of -75 dBm, though.)
3. This is a really minor point, but the camcorder automatically shuts down if I don't start recording within 5 minutes.

Overall, I think ZR40 has great features at such a price and is certainly worth owning if you are looking for one in the price range.

4-0 out of 5 stars very, very solid!!!
I've had this camera for almost a year now. I'd say that all of the features that I would expect from a digital camcorder meet and exceed my expectations.

Things that I like the most:
1. Perfect companion for my iMac.
2. Great quality analog-to-digital conversion. A must if you want to play with analog videos in digital world.
3. Solid Canon design, made in Japan if anyone cares.
4. Price.
5. No useless features like in more popular brand.

Things I don't like as much:
1. I think indoors quality is reasonable but it's average with low light. I don't really know if any cameras in that price range do well in low light.
2. Some people complained about motor noise? It's possible, I haven't tried to make any silent movies yet. I add music to all my movies that don't already have some sound.
3. Battery life is short but recharges quickly.
4. Shuts off quickly if idle.
5. You probably wouldn't want to use low-resolution Photo feature espesially if you have a good digital camera but this is probably the only "useless feature".

If you are like me and just like to point/shoot/watch on tv/edit on your computer - it's great.

1-0 out of 5 stars Eats tapes
After about a year of use, ZR 40 started eating tapes. Do a google search on the topic, there are hundreds of people with the same problem. 'Remove Cassette' and 'Eject' (use those as keywords combined with 'Canon ZR' to view message boards postings) will appear on the screen, and that's the end of the toy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Camcorder
Excellent camcorder, does very well in all kinds of light. I have had no trouble with it indoors, and I find that it performs very well in low light. Flawlessly performs with Windows Movie Maker 2 through firewire. The sound is outstanding, considering the picture is it's strong point. I did not need the digital camera built in as I already have one. Effects are fun to play around with, especially with the handy scroll button. I have not heard the motor noise at all, so I can't see where that is coming from. My only complaint is that it shuts off too quickly if inactive, but it's really not that much of a problem. Image stablizer works really well, as I often have an unsteady hand but it is hardly noticeable with this camcorder. I just wish they made a VCR that could record the footage as well as it was taped!

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality
Love this little camera. Video taken outside is outstanding, inside can be a little fuzzy without bright lighting. Zoom is fabulous. The only thing I don't like is the fact that you can only charge the battery while it is mounted to the camera, which defeats the purpose of having multiple batteries if your wanting to have one battery charging while still using the camera with another battery. ...

Amazon.com Product Description

Canon's latest crowning achievement, the PowerShot S100, packs a high-quality digital camera into the tiny, elegant body of Canon's Digital Elph series. With this item, Canon becomes the first to produce such a small digital camera with high resolution. The super-popular Elph APS cameras were favored because users could slip them into shirt pockets and take them anywhere. Now the digital camera has truly come of age with this ultraportable model.

The PowerShot S100 uses the same durable stainless-steel case as the traditional Elph series cameras. It offers 2-megapixel resolution for high-quality photos and prints up to 8 by 10 inches. Canon provides the PowerShot S100 with a high-resolution, low-distortion, all-glass aspherical 2x zoom lens (and a 4x digital zoom as well). The 1.5-inch LCD monitor displays most camera settings with easy-to-understand icons and minimal text. The PowerShot S100 features a 0.37-inch CCD that creates full color or black-and-white images up to 1,600 x 1,200 pixels (it also offers a 640 x 480 pixel image size). The built-in flash uses a light guide and does not need a fresnel lens or a large reflector, making the camera even more compact.

The PowerShot S100 stores images on an 8 MB CompactFlash card. Adobe PhotoDeluxe and PhotoStitch control image management, editing, compositing, and printing, while ZoomBrowser EX or ImageBrowser produce self-running screen slide shows, automatic e-mail preparation, and auto layout. The camera uses a high-speed plug-and-play USB interface, plus it has NTSC-out so you can view your photos on your TV. It's fully compatible with both Mac and PC platforms. ... Read more

Features

  • 2.1 megapixel sensor captures enough detail to create photo-quality 8 x 10 prints
  • 2x optical plus 4x digital zoom lens with autofocus
  • Included 8 MB CompactFlash card holds 12 images at default resolution
  • Connects with Macs and PCs via USB port
  • Rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery included

5-0 out of 5 stars This is one cool cat!
I've been very reluctant to join the digital camera communitysince I've been an avid "legacy" photographer for most of mylife. I received this little jewel as a gift and I can honestly say Iabsolutely love it. I give this product five stars for its usability,performance, expandability, and definitely looks!

Usability - Ihave to admit, I abhor reading manuals, so after charging thebatteries I immediately dove in, pressing buttons and whatnot. I wasalmost instantly rewarded with the ability to shoot very high qualityphotos, browse through the results, and file manage my pictures. Thesoftware install was a snap, and the plug-n-play of USB PCconnectivity is truly a godsend. I remember not that long ago digitalcameras had floppy drives in them, and the "flash" media usedwas 1.44 MB floppy disk drives!

Performance - Again I was verypleased with the features included in this camera. The Macrofunction, in particular, is stellar. I've not had a chance to playwith the various black and white, exposure, and landscaping featuresyet - but the next trip I take this little guy is definitely comingalong.

Expandability - The camera comes with an 8 MB memory flashcard - which can be upgraded to 128 MB card that can store manymore pictures. The 8 MB card stores 16 pictures at the defaultresolution, whereas the 128 MB card can store around 300 (I believe,I'm still waiting for mine to be delivered). Now that's what I callexpandability. Also, the unit comes with a DV connector - oh thepossibilities...

Looks - OK, so beauty is subjective, blah,blah, blah. This camera is a beaut! It's small yet feels verysturdy, and the all metallic shell gives it a very post-modernistic,cutting-edge look and feel (how can a camera be post-modernistic youask? It's a digital camera - the whole paradigm ispost-modernistic!).

I unequivocally recommend this product to anyonewho is looking for a digital camera (and even those who are but don'tknow it yet).

5-0 out of 5 stars Digital Heaven
I, as many others, have waited for many years for the convergence of price, features, size and ease of use to hit that happy center point. Well wait no more!

This Camera is just plain FUN. I have had it for 5 months and barely a day has gone by that I haven't used it. It really changes the way you approach photography since you can edit on the fly, the instant feedback helps you shoot till you get it right! Trial and error - the best way. Tip - after shooting an image hold the shutter button down and the image will show in the LCD screen

It's very well suited to people with a medium level of computer skills (perfect for Mac users)

The photo stitch feature is awesome letting you seamlessly join panoramic pics together with supplied software.

I recommend the following accessories:

1. Extra compact flash card, as large as you can afford, I got the Viking 128 MB

2. Extra battery, although the supplied pack is pretty good once it runs out you need a back up. (Get the elph Kit which includes a nice case and a really cool strap for not much more than a single battery)

3. If you plan on using the camera with more than one computer (like home and office) get an extra USB connector so you don't have to bring it with you every time.

4. Compact flash reader - I got one of these thanks to other reviewers although I don't use it much. You can upload 50 hi-res pictures in a few minutes with the supplied "image browser" software. It is a good battery saver but with a spare it doesn't matter anyway.

I'm still waiting for the perfect printer, everythhing is SO big and UGLY! but I guess if I wait long enough...........

4-0 out of 5 stars Very handy second camera
I've had this camera for three years. I bought it new, when it was cutting edge and very expensive. I put a 128MB CF card in it.

First, I have to say that I have NEVER had the slightest problem with this camera or the software. I've probably taken upwards of 5000 pictures with it, it's been all over the country. The software has been installed on Windows 95, 98, 2000 and XP and I haven't had any problems with it. The camera is solid, performs well, takes good pictures, and the battery lasts pretty long if you disable the LCD viewfinder. If battery life were that big a deal, one could purchase a second battery and rotate.

All that said, I am a little disappointed with the quality of the pictures from the camera. They are razor sharp, the color balance is perfect, and the focus is great. When taking pictures of people, however, it shows EVERY flaw in the subject's skin. Scratches, oil, freckles are magnified and come out looking horrific. It requires extensive Photoshopping to fix the flaws. Other cameras taking pics of the same subjects turn out looking much better. I'm going to buy another camera to take baby pictures, but I'll keep this as a travel camera.

4-0 out of 5 stars Software not compatible with XP
I originally gave this camera 5 stars. When I had Windows 98 it was wonderful but I got a new computer last November with XP the usb software is Sooo... not compatible with XP I have found however that you can just buy a card reader to solve this problem. The new drivers on cannon's site do not help at all but try them if you want they have made me have to use the backup software. The Adobe software also was wonderful in 98 but it will not let you print correctly with XP so you are forced to create your document then either print it from Windows or export it to another application. But it takes gorgeous pictures for a 2.1 MP camera.

4-0 out of 5 stars Neat Toy
Positives - Cute, compact, solid, Durable (2+ years & no problems). People are always curious and pleased to check out how they look on the LCD. Picture quality very good at highest resolution and good for on-computer or TV viewing at lower res.

Negatives
- Short battery life (buy an extra & carry the charger)
- Tiny (for my big hands) and tiny non-intuitive menus
- Heavy for the size (but solidly built)
- Optical zoom is nice, but digital zoom feature should have been left off

Advice - Buy larger CF Card (they're cheap now), buy extra battery, carry everything (ie. charger, etc) in a medium sized camera bag. This Camera seems indespensible to me now. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Inch for inch and ounce for ounce, Canon's PowerShot S330 Digital Elph packs more power into less space than virtually any other digital camera, stuffing a feature-packed 2-megapixel camera with 3x optical zoom into a diminutive brushed-metal case that slips easily into a purse or pocket.

Resolution
Like last year's S300, the S330 features a 2-megapixel sensor for sharp prints at sizes up to 8 by 10 inches. With cameras of up to 5 megapixels now on the market, some enthusiasts were hoping this would be the year when the Elph made the jump to 3 megapixels, but it appears that Canon still believes 2 megapixels remain the best balance between performance and price for most consumers. We tend to agree. If you regularly print your photos at sizes larger than 8 by 10 inches, you'll probably want a camera with more manual controls than the Elph offers--we recommend Canon's 3-megapixel S30 or 4-megapixel S40.

Optics
A 3x optical zoom lens (35-105mm equivalent) aids in photo composition, and an additional 2.5x digital zoom (7.5x total) further magnifies your image. Remember, however, that digital zoom reduces the sharpness and detail of your image, so it's best used sparingly. Two systems help ensure your pictures will be perfectly focused, even in challenging conditions: a multizone autofocus works even when the subject of your photo isn't in the center of the scene, and in low-light situations (a particular weakness for many digital cameras), a focus-assist lamp sends out a small patterned beam to help the camera accurately determine distance.

More Features
Though it's primarily designed as a point-and-shoot, the S330 includes several advanced features for photographers who want more creative control, including exposure compensation, low-light manual shutter speeds, manual ISO and white balance, stitch assist, plus black-and-white, sepia, vivid, and neutral modes.

A movie mode captures video clips with sound. Depending upon resolution, these clips can last from 2 to 60 seconds. The limited length and resolution of these clips guarantees that this feature won't replace your camcorder, but it's perfect for when you just want to capture a quick movie and e-mail it to a friend or relative. In addition, you can add up to 60 seconds of audio to each still picture you take. A built-in speaker even lets you listen to audio when playing back stills and movies.

Power
The S330 uses a proprietary lithium-ion rechargeable battery, and both the battery and the charger are included. Though the new NB-1LH looks identical to (and is interchangeable with) the NB-1L batteries shipped with previous Elph models, the new battery holds 840 mAh of energy, a 23 percent increase. Because the battery is unique to the Elph cameras and can be nearly impossible to find when on the road, we strongly recommend getting a spare if you're planning to take the camera on extended outings.

Storage and Transfer
Images are stored on standard Type I CompactFlash (CF) cards. Consider the included 8 MB card a "starter" capacity, since its 12-picture limit means you'll need to return to your computer often to transfer images and free up the card for more pictures. A 128 MB card is a great size for this camera, storing around 200 images. To transfer images to your computer, simply attach the included USB cable between your PC and your camera. Your computer should automatically recognize your camera and let you move the pictures to your hard drive.

Printing
Canon has introduced a series of printers designed to work directly with the S330. Using these printers, no computer is required--simply connect the camera to the printer and start printing. The CP-10 produces credit-card-sized prints, and the CP-100 makes 4-by-6-inch prints. Both use continuous-tone technology for results that are indistinguishable from traditional photos. Of course, photos from your Elph can also be printed on any home computer system with an inkjet printer, sent off for online processing, or simply enjoyed on your computer screen.

Size
At just 3.7 by 2.5 by 1.2 inches and 8.6 ounces, the S330 is identical in size to its predecessor. If this sounds too bulky, the S200 Elph is even smaller and has specs that are nearly identical, with the exception of a less powerful 2x optical zoom lens.

Contents
The package includes the S330 camera, NB-1LH battery with CB-2LS charger, AV and USB cables, wrist strap, software suite, and 8 MB memory card.

5-0 out of 5 stars Small, but packed with features!
I wanted a compact digital camera, so after much research I settled on the S330. This is a great camera that is well built and takes great pictures. I wasn't sure if 2MP would be enough for me, but so far it's great. I wanted a camera mainly for family pics and travel. I was using a point and shoot 35 mm Nikon with a zoom and I wanted to go digital. To me, the S330 takes just as good pictures. I usually don't print over 8x10, so I can crop pictures and print them out on my HP printer and they're beautiful. The camera is easy to operate and it fits in my pocket (but a bit heavy). I have Windows XP and the software installed easily and I have had no problems with it.
I have a 128 meg CF card that works well. I usually shoot on the highest resolution and the battery lasts about as long as it takes me to fill the flash card. Recharging is very easy.
So here are my:

Pros:
Small, portable and built very well
Easy to use with manual mode of various settings
can take cute video clips

Shutter lag is not bad
Takes great pics
3X zoom is nice and quick
Love the ability to review pics on camera and magnify 10X to check detail and quality

Cons:
video clips not the greatest quality and very short
sometimes my indoor pics aren't in sharp focus
sometimes it seems camera won't focus quickly (indoors)
Camera is a bit expensive for 2 MP

Overall, I highly reccommend it! It's easy and fun to use. Good luck!

5-0 out of 5 stars This Camera is awesome!
After reading many of the customer reviews along with doing my own research I finally decided to purchase the Canon S330 and received it about a week ago from Amazon. I am delighted to report the postive reviews on this camera are right on! I know very little about digital cameras, downloading photos to PC, printing photos etc., but I was doing it all the same evening I unpacked it. The photos I have taken are great; the clarity and colors are amazing! All procedures are clearly explained from start to finsh. I have Windows 98 and downloading the photos from the S330 goes swiftly without incident. I also purchased the recommended (good advice) Viking 128MB Flash Card along with an extra Canon NB-1LH battery pack. I will get plenty of use out of the camera simply because it is fun, compact, easy to use, and I can view and print the photos whenever time allows. No more running out to buy film, batteries, get the film developed, or pay for photos that didn't turn out well. I also purchased the Canon MultiPass F30 Printer/Scanner/Copier which I am very pleased with as well. Taking pictures during the holidays is going to be a snap.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality rugged camera
Everyone wrote enough about it, so I will only add that this camera worked much better than expected for quite a long time, until during last trip, I dropped it really hard on cement.
The shutter button came out, the case kind of split in half (could see the guts inside), and of course the door for the memory card broke and the battery came off... I just pushed the camera back together and it snapped in place (kind off, still see inside), put back the shutter button (without the spring that came off which I lost), scotch taped the memory card door, and the camera seemed to work fine. Actually we finished the vacation taking pictures with it for a few more days. No quality difference noticed between the picture from before the accident and after.
Now I am back, unfortunately it would be too expensive to fix it, so I guess will buy another ELPH, perhaps 3-4M pixels and if it will be anything like this one, I am sure I will not regret it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Camera... Digital Elph's are great...
I purchased the S330 a couple years ago, and I love it. I have taken it everywhere and taken almost 1,000 pics with it. I purchased the 128MB card and have yet to fill the card. I have not had any problems and it has been the best camera I've ever had. So much in fact, everyone who sees it wants one and is very impressed. I am now looking into getting one for my brother for Christmas.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Product
No regrets. Great in every way. Sharp Pictures, fast, comfortable rechargeable battery system. Only advise: Get extra card. I am happy after having bought a 128 Kb. card. Very recommendable. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

The Canon Elan 7 uses seven focusing points, 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 7'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 7 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. It's even possible to check the depth of field using the preview button. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars I just love my Elan 7!
After living with a manual focus camera for 20 years, I'd splurged and bought myself the Canon Rebel and a couple lenses. I was happy with it, but it lacked some features I was seeking. Enter the Elan 7. Oh my! Once I learned how to use the multiple frame feature, there was no stopping me! I stopped getting so-so shots of my sons in their soccer games, and was getting at least one spot on perfect out of the two or three. This alone makes the camera worth its price for me, but there are other aspects I like as well.

The camera just feels solid to me. My Rebel was lightweight, but I always worried that came with a price. I use my camera often in an active way, hiking in our bluffs, riding my bike through the wetlands and cross country skiing in the rare years we get enough decent snow cover. The camera can handle these kinds of conditions, and I've always had nice photos come back to me. I also appreciate the very high shutter speeds it affords me. I've nearly stopped the action of hovering hummingbirds with this camera, it's that fast. It's also fairly quiet as SLRs go, another plus for those who need that feature. The rewind is almost silent, which helps when I am stalking birds and my film runs out, as it invariably does.

There were a few little glitches in going from the Rebel to the Elan for me. Although they are both EOS cameras, one can't assume that the Elan is just a more expensive Rebel and will operate as such. For one thing, the film counter system is completely reversed. The Rebel counts down, the Elan counts up.
The benefit to this is that I always get 25 exposures with my Elan, whereas 24 was the max with the Rebel. Yes, film is cheap, but it does add up!

Also, the creative controls work differently. I'd become very used to setting the Rebel to under or over expose, and needed to relearn the way to set that with the Elan. On the plus side, with the Elan, there is a setting that will allow for autobracketing, so that you can achieve the same thing with less thought, once you know that setting.

The kit lens was a nice plus as well. My Rebel had 35mm as its widest angle, and the 28mm allows a little more range for me. I've had my Elan now for three years, and I am still learning to take full advantage of all it has to offer. From a camera junkie, that is high praise indeed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply the best I've owned
This is the finest consumer-grade SLR I have owned, and I have been in the SLR autofocus market since the Minolta Maxxums came out in the mid-80's. I have owned several Nikon SLRs and Canon EOS SLRs, and the Elan 7 is the closest to perfection that a 35mm autofocus slr will ever come (that is, one that is not a professional camera).
It has all the pro features you would want, has superb weight and balance, metal top and front plates, several custom functions, excellent compatibility with Canon EX speedlights, accepts all EOS lenses, etc, etc. I can't go into all the great features now, there are too many.
I got the amazing BP-300 battery pack for this camera, which adds a great deal to its fine balance when using long lenses. The battery pack also allows you to use cheaper AA batteries instead of the pricey lithiums. And, it adds some length to the grip (for those with large hands). This is a great "must buy" accessory, and can be had for around $60-70.
The controls are simply laid out, easy to access, learn and use. The exposure can go full-automatic or total manual control.
Do not go with the 7 "E" (eye control) version. This is only a gimmick, does not increase focus time, but does increase the cost of the camera.
The built in flash is nice when not using a shoe mounted flash, the quick control dial is a great improvement, and its speed is increased over the previous Elan versions.
A couple of downsides:
1. In low light, it uses the flash as a focus asist light, instead of an IR beam. This is a bit of a nuisance.
2. The LCD screen on top, while very legible and informative, has no backlight to read in low light.
3. The pop up flash should extend a bit higher to avoid vignetting over long zoom lenses.
-However, these are VERY minor complaints, and no camera is perfect. This is a great camera, well-made, with outstanding features and accessories. For the price there is none better.

4-0 out of 5 stars My main camera
I bought this as my first (and as of now, only) auto-focus SLR. I'm generally pleased with the camera: the metering is fine and it's fairly problem free.

I do have one gripe: low-light focusing. Unless you have an attached flash (I use a 550 Speedlite), low-light focusing is a pain. It doesn't come with a built-in infra-red light for such situations and instead, fires the flash like a strobe. Not exactly inconspicuous.

Other than that, a good camera for more experience amatures like myself.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent camera!
I purchased the Elan 7 about two months ago as a refurbished unit. Unfortunately, the camera had a defective feature button. But the problem was quickly resolved by sending the camera back for a replacement.

Since then, I have shot quite a few rolls of film. I have been impressed with each roll (except the ones I screwed up by not being careful). The metering is fairly accurate- I feel I can trust what it tells me. While in manual focus, however, it only meters the center focusing point, which can be a pain at times. But, the metering is displayed in both the viewfinder and the LCD display, which is quite handy.

The camera is loaded with features- more than I really need. If you need help taking pictures, this camera is for you. It has a setting for almost every circumstance of shooting. I prefer the manual mode, which gives the user complete control.

The included lens is nice. Certainly not the best lens out there, but for starters it works great. The auto-focusing happens instantly, but beware it has a hard time in low light. One bonus is it goes down to 28mm, nice and wide. And you can zoom to 100mm within about a foot of a subject, bringing things really to life on prints. The drawback is it only stops down to f/4.5 at 28mm, f/5.6 at 100mm. It would be nice if it would open up a bit more.

Also, it has an electronic shutter. So, if you're planning on doing astrophotography or very long exposures, plan on bringing extra batteries or shop for a different camera.

So far, I have no standing complaints about this camera. It's built well, is rather light and feels good in my hands. It's quiet, fast, and leaves little to be desired in features. I recommend this camera for anyone who is beyond 'point & shoot' and is looking to take their photography to the next level.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent versitile SLR for amateurs
The Elan 7 is an excellent, high quality SLR camera for amateurs, particularly those who are learning more advanced SLR techniques. One of the things I appreciate the most about the Elan 7 is that it switches easily between manual and automatic modes for those times when the amateur needs to have the reliability of an automatic mode. Also, there is a broad range of Canon lenses available for this body which also switch easily from manual to automatic for such occasions. I've found that I've been able to hand my Elan 7 off to others (who can sometimes barely use an automatic 35mm camera) while traveling and still get excellent photographs. On the other hand, the control offered by this camera in manual mode is unparalleled by other consumer SLR cameras such as the EOS.

The Elan 7 is the best SLR I've owned. While I've not owned an EOS, I have used an EOS. I highly recommend spending the extra money for the Elan 7 for those amateurs who strive to test their abilities with the more advanced manual modes. The EOS, however, may make a better "first" SLR camera for those who are trying SLR photography for the first time. ... Read more


170. Canon ZR70MC MiniDV Digital Camcorder with 2.5" LCD, 22x Optical Zoom, Digital Still Mode, MMC Slot, Image Stabilization and Wide Angle Attachment
list price: $799.99
(price subject to change: see help)
Asin: B000088USX
Catlog: Photography
Manufacturer: Canon Video
Sales Rank: 2025
Average Customer Review: 3.56 out of 5 stars
US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan

Amazon.com Product Description

The advanced Canon ZR70MC MiniDV camcorder brings together all the features of the ZR65MC, from its ease of use to still photo mode and digital effects. It also adds a 22x optical zoom, 440x digital zoom, motion JPEG movie mode, Super Night mode, and an advanced accessory shoe for powering a microphone or video light.

Lens
The ZR70MC 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 ZR70MC is fitted with a high-performance 22x 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 ZR70MC's 440x 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 Stills and Motion JPEG
In addition to high-quality video, the ZR70MC also captures crisp XGA (1,024 x 768 pixels) digital still images. The ZR70MC 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.

Designed to help you make Web videos, motion JPEG mode produces compressed AVI files that are smaller and easier to run and send by e-mail than conventional video files. They're also stored on the memory card and transferred via the USB connection. Record a 10-second clip at 320 x 240 or a 30-second clip at 160 x 120.

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 jump 10 pictures backward or forward from the current position.

More Features

  • With Super Night mode, the assist lamp lights up to illuminate your subject
  • 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 them together on your PC with the PhotoStitch software
  • The full-function wireless remote control works at distances up to 16 feet
  • A wide selection of faders and special effects, including sepia, black and white, wave, mosaic, and more
  • For low-light situations, the VCR playback controls can be illuminated in any one of six colors: turquoise, blue, green, yellow, violet, and orange

Inputs and Outputs
The ZR70MC 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 ZR70MC features two types of analog audio and video inputs and outputs: composite and S-video. The analog audio inputs of the ZR70MC 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, and it is highly regarded for its high audio and image quality. With up to 540 lines of horizontal resolution and minimum color noise, MiniDV delivers a 2 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 ZR70MC comes with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack, which has an approximate battery life of 2 hours 20 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 ZR70MC camcorder, battery pack BP-512, power adapter CA-570, wireless controller WL-D79, shoulder strap, stereo video cable, wide attachment, USB cable, 8 MB Secure Digital memory card, and the DV Network Solutions and Digital Video Solutions CD-ROMs. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars I like it a lot; perfect for iMovie
-- Best things: Fits hand, very easy to use, convenient size (smaller more expensive models are hard to control, even with stabilization), the optical zoom is wonderful, the sound is sensitive and surprisingly accurate (more on that below), image quality in bright light is awesome, AV passthrough lets you transcribe to/from video or S-video devices (e.g., TV, VCR) direct to FireWire (with or without going onto tape in between). It works wonderfully with iMovie software on Mac OS-X.
-- Worst things: Comes from Canon without a tape, comes with USB cable but not a FireWire cable, has bells and whistles (who actually needs to change colors of illuminated buttons?), takes still shots (I don't need/want a digital still photo feature with another set of media and cables). Built-in mic picks up wind noise. (I haven't tried the optional accessory microphone.)
-- Other comments: Perhaps pricey, but worth it for the Canon optics and ease of use. The ZR-70 comes with a wide-angle lens which is actually useful. So is the remote control. Battery life is longer than a tape's capacity, so plan to have a spare battery and a separate charger (not included) and change battery and tape together. I haven't done much with low light conditions, but it seems okay. Some ZR reviews have mentioned motor noise picked up in the sound recording - it isn't a problem for me. The camera adjusts the recording level to match the ambient sound level - this means that you get great sound in a wide range of situations. Only if there is no other sound will the camera turn up the sensitivity so high that it records its own motor's noise.
-- Punchline: I'm really happy with this DV camcorder, and recommend it. (5 stars if it came with a tape and FireWire cable in the box, and without still photo feature.)

4-0 out of 5 stars Great little "toy"!
This is a great little camera (fits in your hand nicely) for the beginer as well as the more advanced video buff that does not want to carry a heavier equipment.
Very easy to use, it has a number of effects (usual fade-in and out, sepia, black and white and various fun digital effects) that will make your movies fun to watch.
Menus are easy to follow and make sense. Documentation is good.
The 22X optical zoom is realy nice and beats out the competion. Most camcorders optical zooms don't even get close to 20X.
The wide angle attachment is a very nice addition as it realy makes a difference when shooting indoors to get more of the room.
Mine came with a free Pinacle Studio 8 editing software which is a good entry level software.(You will need a serious PC, though, if you are going to do any large editing work as digital movies require a lot of space and memory).
The only serious con is the image quality in low light situations. The resulting image is grainy and cold and the camera's "spot" light is useless.
Some reviewers have complained about the motor noise that is picked-up by the built-in microphone, it is noticable when filming in a church (!) but for most applications,you will not notice it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for enthusiastic people
Before buying this I did lot of research finally came down to canon zr70mc and sony dcr-hc30. (don't fall for other canon models like zr80-85. they lack features ) Both models are appealing for price. Sony has bigger lcd and better lowlight performance while Canon have better zoom (22x as compared to 10x of sony ) and lots and lots of features. Some people say canon is having better image stability So it can afford 22x zoom w/o problem.
in zr70mc you can download video from TV/VRC or other camcorder witout any additional accesories. So easily copy old analog tapes to this digital camcorder Or burn DVD's. Canon also provides wide angle lens (very useful ) Plus sony has only 3 months labor while canon gives 12 months labor warranty.

only tape loading in zr70 is little difficult if you use tripod.

Overall this is a good value. I tested indoor using 100w room light. Picture was little yellowish. But I got filter set from ebay for 17$ and all looks good now.
NOTE: protect lens and always use uv filters.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great little camera - needs tweaking for good indoor results
I picked this up new at a great close-out price as the 2004 models were moving in and am very impressed. Outdoor shots are great - just point and shoot. Indoor requires a little work to get decent results and the user manual isn't much help. Surf the web to find how to use Spotlight mode, AE tweaks, and setting shutter speed to get pretty good results. Don't expect indoor quality to beat a big lens Hi-8, but most DVs don't. Controls and connectivity are very good. Some bells and whistles are a little excessive (picking different colors for the illuminated buttons during record and during play), but the important stuff is all there too.

1-0 out of 5 stars Terrible image
This camera is loaded with features and is cheap. Those are the only good things. The indoor quality is awful. I would shoot at 10AM in a well lit room and it was terribly grainy on a 32" TV. Our old Hi8 Sony and our digital camera shoot better video than this. You choose which one insults it more. AVOID THIS CAMERA. I have two exellent still cameras made by Canon, so I am not telling you to avoid Canon, I am telling you to avoid this camera. It is terrible. Do not even consider this camera. When the reviews say "low light", that refers to ANYTHING indoors. The room I shot about as bright as it can get, and the lights were on. TERRIBLE CAMERA AVOID THIS CAMERA AT ALL COSTS. Ignore the positive reviews, they either never shot indors or have never seen the picture quality yet. If they did they too would be with me giving it one star. I'd have given 5 stars but the picture quality is 9999999999999999% NOT ACCEPTIBLE. Avoid this camcorder like the plague. ... Read more

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

  • 2x to 10x zoom into captured images while reviewing via the LCD

Canon Technology Features

  • Digic Imaging Processor: While much technical discussion of digital cameras centers around the optics and the CCD sensor, the complex task of image rendering is the job of the image processor--the "brains" of a digital camera. Canon's latest, exclusive DIGIC Imaging Processor significantly enhances digital camera performance in numerous areas. DIGIC's high-speed signal processing is combined with high-capacity buffering to give Canon digital cameras fast response and continuous shooting capability unmatched by other digital cameras. DIGIC delivers longer battery life and beautiful, rich color rendition with far fewer white saturation problems. And DIGIC's unequaled precision delivers clear, noise-free images that are demonstrably superior.
  • iSAPS Technology: Canon iSAPS (Intelligent Scene Analysis based on Photographic Space) technology dramatically improves the performance of AF (Autofocus), AE (Auto Exposure), and AWB (Auto White Balance). By analyzing a huge volume of photography data, accumulated over 60 years and the manufacture of over 150 million cameras, Canon engineers arrived at statistical relationships among focal length, focus distance, scene brightness, and other factors. Equipped with this "fore knowledge" Canon PowerShot cameras can optimize AF/AE/AWB settings for any given scene more rapidly and more effectively.
  • Multi-point AiAF: Canon's wide-area, multi-point AiAF (artificial intelligence autofocus) automatically selects one or more focusing points based on factors, such as subject position and motion. AiAF works in conjunction with iSAPS Technology to more quickly and accurately achieve autofocus under a wide variety of shooting conditions. You get fast, accurate AF whether you hold the camera horizontally or vertically, with stationary or moving subjects, with off-center subjects, and even in low-light/low-contrast lighting.

Direct Printing/Sharing
The PowerShot S410 introduces a new Print/Share button that speeds and simplifies printing to compatible Canon and PictBridge enabled printers and one-touch image transfer to Windows XP, Me, 2000, and 98 computers for use with image processing programs, uploading to the Internet, or placement in e-mail. When connected to a Canon Compact Photo printer, a Movie Print mode divides the selected clip into equal parts and prints thumbnails of a maximum 63 equally spaced frames onto a single sheet of Postcard Size Paper.

Storage and Transfer
Images and video are stored on CompactFlash memory cards (Type I only) and the included 32 MB card holds approximately 21 images at the Large/Fine setting. Images can be downloaded to either a Mac or PC via USB 1.1 connectivity, which means the camera can be connected to any USB-based Windows Me/2000/XP and Mac OS 8.6 or later computer without installing any software.

Power and Size
The camera is powered by rechargeable lithium-ion battery (NB-1LH). With the LCD on, you will get approximately 190 shots. It measures 3.43 x 2.24 x 1.09 inches and weighs 6.5 ounces (without batteries).

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Point-and-Shoot Camera
This is the ultimate camera for active/sporting/outdoor snapshots. It's so small you can stick it in a pocket, and yet it has flash, 3x optical zoom and 4 megapixel resolution! Because it's digital you can see the results immediately, and you don't have to worry about wasting film. Send your experiences and memories to everyone!

Pros:
* Very small and handy
* Unobtrusive-your friends will stop posing every time you try to take a picture! My friend Christine has mastered the art of stealth photography with her S410; she looks in a different direction while glancing at the LCD viewfinder!
* Uses Compact Flash (CF)- Low-cost easy to handle memory cards available in capacities up to 1 GB!
* Picture quality (so far) is excellent

Cons:
* Uses a rechargeable battery-This takes some extra planning and perhaps a purchase of a spare battery.
* Non-automatic operation is difficult-the small size makes it hard to read and navigate the controls
* Small size can be a danger! You could lose it accidentally or drop it out of a shirt pocket

4-0 out of 5 stars Terrific snapshooter, if lacking in manual functions
For about 80% of people, this camera is going to be a dream come true.

Simply put, it's the pinnacle of ultra compact digital camera technology. With a 4 megapixel resolution with a better sensor than almost all of its competitors in a body the size of a pack of cigarettes, the Canon S410 is fabulous. The buttons and other physical factors of the interface are all well designed: the zoom and shutter button are in the same place for ridiculously easy one handed operation. The function knob on the upper right provides easy access to several shooting & playback modes. Compare this to other recent sexy, ultra-compact powershooters by Casio & Fuji (Think Z4U and A340) and you'll understand why this is a superior camera.

Other pros:
-Canon STILL uses Compact Flash media, which is significantly cheaper than xD and sD, which a good 90% of other brands use. I have yet to see a downside in everyday use (don't ask me about extreme temperate conditions or whether the various media survive prolonged exposure to electromagnetic fields of varying strengths, as I won't know, and most people don't care).
-I personally like Canon's picture quality far better than that of most of its competitors, within the same style of camera.
-The auto-focus system is superior to all other cameras of this size and strength. VASTLY superior.

Cons:
-Canon's movie mode is growing steadily outdated. This is one area where you may be able to find another camera that serves better: This camera is limited to 3 minutes of 15 FPS 320 x 240 resolution motion capture, regardless of the size of your memory card. I do, however, think that if you're that serious about wanting to record digital movies, you should look to a device more aimed at that sort of thing, like the new Panasonic digi-video-cams that take still images as a secondary function.
-Memory door is made of plastic, not metal like the rest of the camera, and I have seen it break.
-1.5" LCD leaves something to be desired (esp. compared to Casio's line of 2" LCD ultracompacts).
-No easy, pre-set scene modes like Fuji or Minolta have.

Reasons why you would NOT like this camera:
-If this is your first digital camera. I can understand how you may be disappointed by the fact that 99% of point & shoot digital cameras do not make film-quality prints. This is something you will just have to deal with, or not use digital cameras: short of a $700+ SLR digi camera, you will NEVER consistently get film-quality prints, and even then, you will not get the same quality as a comparably priced film camera.
-If you are a photo enthusiast. Canon's Digital Elph line of cameras is designed around every day snapshooters that do not need or know how to use things like manual white balance, various aperture settings, add-on lenses, etc. The similarly priced Canon S45 is much more along the lines of what you're looking for, if you insist on remaining in the compact category. Otherwise, invest in a digital SLR camera, as you will be much happier.

5-0 out of 5 stars Small Size/ Big Performance
I'm not an expert on photography. I have only taken one photography class in my life, but this little camera is quite amazing! The size fits perfectly in anyone's hands; moreover, the buttons and controls are easy to manuever.

I was able to operate this camera pretty much right out of the box without having to read the manual. I have no problems downloading the pictures into my computer. It's very user friendly.

The pictures are crisp and clear, as you can see in the open window. It's a great daytime, point and shoot sort of camera and the pictures look quite professional. The only problems it has is taking night-time photos. This camera has a bit of a problem in the dark, but overall, great value for the price!!!!

I highly recommend it!

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best cameras out there for its size.
I got this camera because I was looking for a camera that was small but had great resolution. This camera can fit right into the palm of your hand. The only thing i didn't like was that the video is 320x240 pixels but the camera takes outstanding photos. This is a camera for someone who wants a small camera but with great resolution.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Still Picture Quality for Compact Digital Cameras
If you just need a digital camera to take pictures in the sun light, you can almost pick any digital camera.

But if you want your camera to take great pictures under all different light conditions (i.e. in door, with dark background, wedding photos and other complex light situations), then Canon S410/S500 will be the only choice. Thanks to Canon DIGIC Image Processor and iSAPS Technology, this Canon S410 really takes perfect pictures in all different light conditions, which no compact digital camera from other vender can match.

However the Canon case for S500/S410 is very dispointing, which is poorly made with cheap fake leather.

I found the most beautiful, perfect fitting leather case for Canon S410/S500 from http://stores.ebay.com/ProCases ... Read more

One of the slimmest scanners on the market, the Canon LiDE 50 measures less than two inches high and includes a desktop stand for nearly invisible vertical storage. This doesn't mean it can't handle your originals--thanks to the Z-lid design, the LiDE 50 can accommodate items up to an inch thick while keeping them totally flat for absolutely impeccable scans.

48-bit color and a 16-bit grayscale provide rich tones and clear contrasts; the 1,200 x 2,400 optical resolution (9,600 x 9,600 dpi interpolated) handles the rest with clean, crisp detail. USB 2.0 interface means there's a single cord that supplies both power and connection, as well as a speedy transfer of data.

2-0 out of 5 stars Cool design with no ON/OFF switch that went lights out.
I first pick this scanner because it was nice and compact looking, with an eye catching silver slim design. It had USB 2 and good resolution, but like most scanners doesn't have too many other features. It ran fine on my PIV XP laptop with 512mb, the driver and software install perfectly on the first try. People, who say they have software issues, should reformat their machine, because there are some software or memory conflicts from human error. Usually people install thing and erase system files improperly or accidentally.

Performances:
Scanning images on this machine is fast and the scans look great. Its actual scanning perform is a lot better then the machine that replaced it. The HP 6110 all-in-one scanned a lot slower and produced very grainy images. Canon's scans were much smoother quality.

Bad bulb that went lights out:
I like everything in this little scanner, but Canon cut corner on two major issues. The first, which was the reason I had to return it, is: there is no ON/OFF switch. The scanner power up through the USB cable when the computer turns on. Sometime I leave my laptop on for whole day, which also leaves the scanner on for a whole day: this is how I figured the light bulb died within the first month. At first, I unplugged the USB cable, but over time you forget or get careless. Maybe there is a setting to control this, but it was too late. Canon cut corner on the ON/OFF switch simply to save money. The other smaller problem, but annoying feature is the driver software doesn't let you customize scanning sizes. After using a HP for years, I would like to pick my own scan size, sometime like 72dpi or 350dpi. Canon preset dpi in increment of 100s is annoying.

The return to the store
Good thing the bulb died on the 28th day so I got to return and exchange for a more feature HP 6110, but with lesser performance rating. I stayed away from Canon's cool but cheaply constructed design, until the overly impressive Canon's I960 photo printer changed my mind.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Bargain
Since I purchased my first Canon color printer 2 years ago, I've had nothing but positive experiences with Canon products. This scanner is no exception. It's replacing a VERY old parallel port scanner and I must say, technology has come a long, long way.

To begin with, this scanner is incredibly fast. Connected to a USB 2.0 port, full page color scans at 300dpi take less than 30 seconds to complete. Most of the time, I use it to scan pencil sketches directly into Photoshop (extremely easy). In gray-scale mode, I can scan an entire page at 300dpi in ~10 seconds...blazingly fast! Top it off with easy setup, self powered USB (no power brick!), and sleek design, this scanner is a bargain.

Unless you're doing hardcore, ultra high-res, ultra high-quality, professional graphics work, this is the scanner for you.

2-0 out of 5 stars Does NOT work at 1200dpi
The LiDE 50 will not scan at 1200dpi. I'm running a 1Ghz Athlon with 256MB of RAM and plenty of system resources in Windows 2000 Professional. The scans just "hang" at 20% or 90% and never finish. Also, parts in the internal mechanism of the scanner I recieved appear to have minor corrosion on them. Whether it is this or a compatibility problem that is the cause of the scanning problems I will never know because there is no way I'm wasting my time with another unit.

2-0 out of 5 stars LiDE 50 on Linux a no go
If you plan to use the Canon CanoScan LiDE 50 on Linux, you're currently out of luck. Of the LiDE scanners, the Sane (Scanner Access Now Easy - http://www.sane-project.org/) project only supports the LiDE 20 and 30. That's why only 3 stars.

BTW, though this is labeled as a USB 2.0 product, it also works with USB 1.1.

3-0 out of 5 stars Lide 50 Review: Consider Carefully
Well after accidently dropping and smashing my previous Canoscan 1240U which I was completely happy with, EXCEPT for the speed. Superb image quality, but painfully slow, I looked at the canon site to checkout the new range.

I considered 3 canoscans, the Lide20/30 and 50.
I selected the 50 primarily because it was USB2 and more than twice the speed of
my old scanner (the 1240U's are renovned for slow scans).

Unfortunately this scanner just doesnt live up to any of the hype or my expectations. I did expect the image quality to be as good as the lide 20 or 30.

The images as other people have also said are grainy and drilling down on a 600 or 1200dpi scan easily shows this. I am very dissapointed with the image quality.
The dust button must be enabled otherwise dust imperfections are shocking.

The speed is certainly faster especially on preview. But on some scans depending on what you are scanning at etc its not alot faster than my old scanner. I get the
feeling that this scanner is geared around the 300dpi, as some scans other than
300dpi eg: 150 take an unexplainable long time.

The updates of the scan software are nice, but not alot better in my view.
I did end up having to uninstall all of my older Canoscan software to be sure
that there wasnt some wierd software issue causing the poor quality.

If I had to choose again, I think i would again suffer the slow speed of the Lide 30 (updated 1240U) and choose it even the lide 20 is better quality than the 50.

Having said all this even though the scanner is usb2 capable i have it plugged into a usb1 only port, but this shouldnt make any difference. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Canon's PowerShot range of cameras has always been strong, and the PowerShot 400 continues that tradition. The 4 Megapixel Canon PowerShot S400 digital camera is capable of taking still images at 2,272 x 1,704 pixels--enough for a good quality A4 print. Resolutions go down to 640 x 480 for images you might only want to look at digitally. You can also capture video at 320 x 240 and 160 x 120 pixels.

The camera is very small indeed--smaller than earlier PowerShot models, and is easily pocket sized. There is what at first might seem a bewildering array of buttons around the casing, but in fact these provide excellent one-button-press access to most of the most used features, such as the 3x optical zoom which goes up to 11x when combined with digital zoom features, the macro mode, settings for the flash and self timer. For more advanced features like changing the shutter speed, which it is great to be able to do on a digital camera; you do need to delve into the LED a little further, though.

Images are stored on CompactFlash card--the largest image can be a couple of MB in size so you'll need to think big when it comes to CF card size with this camera. The battery is removable, and a spare to carry in the pocket might be a good idea.

Canon supplies a range of desktop software for viewing, editing and making use of your digital images. As with previous PowerShot cameras, one of the tools works with the Stitch Assist mode on the camera itself in the production of panorama shots. Digital cameras get more advanced all the time, but we dare to say that the PowerShot S400 is probably the best pocket sized digital camera we've seen. --Sandra Vogel, Amazon.co.uk ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for casual photo enthusiasts (travelers)
I am a casual photo enthusiast who enjoys taking pictures of my friends and family wherever I go. Both photographic quality and portability are of paramount concerns and I think I found my holy grail with Canon S400.

Pros:
- Extremely portable, yet very rugged
- Beautiful design with excellent overall ergonomics
- Typically excellent photo quality in all-auto mode with no redeye
- Very fast -- startup time, image processing and acquisition, menu response
- Long battery life
- Uses widely popular (and inexpensive) CompactFlash Type 1 memory cards
- 4 megapixel resolution (2272x1704)
- 3X optical zoom/11X max with digital
- Useful movie mode with audio (3 minutes at 320x240 or 160x120)

Cons:
- Minimal manual controls (e.g., no manual focus)
- Cheap A/V/digital output cover
- Movie mode limited to 3 minutes (and no 640x480 mode may irk some)
- Proprietary battery
- Some barrel distortion when taking wide angle shots

While S400 has some shortcomings, mainly lack of manual focus, exposure, and shutter speed. And some may be bothered by its use of proprietary lithium ion battery, although given its compact size, I think Canon engineers had to implement proprietary battery. On the plus side, the battery lasts a long time, capable of taking several hundred shots before running out of juice (and takes only a couple of hours to recharge).

I've managed to fill entire 512MB memory card (32MB is included) on a single battery charge.

Did I mention how beautiful this camera is? The photos do not do this camera a justice. At 3.4" by 2.2" by 1.1", the S400 is no larger than most compact cell phones. Inch by inch, it's only a tad larger than my tiny Sony Ericsson T68i cell phone and smaller than (although a bit thicker) my Apple iPod MP3 player.

The ergonomics are consistently excellent. Although there are some learning curves (particularly given rich feature set), once mastered (comprehensive manuals make it easy), most will appreciate elegant menu layout and ideal number of buttons and layout.

But beautiful design means nothing if it does not accomplish its main functions -- taking beautiful pictures. In full auto setting, which is what majority people might use, the pictures were consistently satisfying, although overriding the white balance to match the lighting condition improved the quality significantly in many shots.

This is a great camera.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Velue Period - Ultra compact digital camera
... this camera is the best compact digital on the market.

Sure, there are 5 megapixel compact cameras out now, but the cost is still too high. 4mp resolution makes great 8x10 prints, and lab-quality at 4x6 and 5x7.

The combination if its tiny size, beautiful results, and stylish design is unbeatable at the current prices. I take it everywhere and hardly notice it. It's like carrying a deck of cards in my pocket. Most good hi-res digital cameras are much bulkier.

Compact Flash memory is really, really cheap now. Buy a 512mb card and never worry about storage.

3X optical zoom is wonderful.

If you don't have a digital camera, or want a top-quality unit, you really owe it to yourself to check out the S400.

Auto white balance, auto exposure, and auto focus help the least savvy technophobes take outstanding photos.

Flash is surprisingly effective in dark rooms.

Lithium-ion battery lasts a long time and charges quickly. Who needs rechargable AA batteries when this battery is so good? Prices on Canon batteries are also down, so buy a spare.

The video out cable is nice for previewing pictures on a TV, but I usually use the computer for viewing photos.

Bundled software does the basic image editing. You'll want to go with Photoshop Elements 2 or Paint Shop Pro ... for serious editing and enhanced capabilities.

5-0 out of 5 stars It might be your memory cards
Not all memory cards work well with all cameras. I tried to use a Viking card with my Canon s230, and got the E18 error mentioned here. As soon as I swapped my SanDisk back in, the problem was gone forever. I think sending the memory card back was a much better and cheaper solution than ditching an excellent camera.

5-0 out of 5 stars Ideal size and function
I bought this a few months ago and wanted to wait until I had used it sufficiently. It's great. Whether alone in your pocket or inside the thin leather case (the Canon velcro one is nice), it takes up as much space as a pack of cigarettes or a thick wallet. Super easy to take out, turn on, point, shoot, turn off, and put back in your pocket, all in under 30 seconds. I've taken it on several trips including London where it was great to not look like a tourist, lugging a neckstrapped telephoto around town. And it couldn't be easier to get them onto your PC. I love it and wish I'd bought it sooner.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great camera
This is a beautiful small camera that takes great pictures and has all the feautures most of us photo snappers need. The dials are fairly intuitive to use and the 3X zoom comes in handy. The negative is that battery life is relatively short. I would recommend a spare battery to be able to keep shooting if the battery runs out. Also, now that the price of the CF memory chip has decreased a great deal, I would recommend at least a 256 mB memory card. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Incredible Portability and Quality
On the go, I frequently need to print out documents, be it invoices, reciepts, e-mails, etc etc so I decided to purchase this product. Words cannot describe my feelings toward it, I use it soo much with the laptops I don't know how I lived without one before. Installation on Windows 2k, and ME was flawless, both using the Fast IrDA.

The printer is just the perfect size to slide in to my briefcase, and adds little weight. It's battery operation is really what caught my eye, it says you can print about 100 pages with a full charge, but I think its a bit less than that. However, the battery takes little time to charge.

I was not aware it would come with as much ink as it did, came with 2 color cartidges, 1 black (small), and 1 black (large), as well as two trays that they are held in. The Fast IrDA is such a fabulous thing, wireless printing all the way. I decided to purchase a USB cable, its much easier some times using the cable then the IrDA (Infared) port. The quality of the documents is fantastic, matching (and beating!) my desktop printers at home. The speed is good, considering this is a portable printer. The only real drawback is that it is a single sheet feed printer, unless you buy the paper loader, which I will surely do! This is THE BEST portable printer I've found on the market, it is well worth the money.

This is a small update, I've been using the printer for about 5 months now, and everything has gone smoothly. I purchased the auto-sheet feeder from Canon (directly, from their web site) and it performs just like a normal desktop printer would! I'm still loving it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent!
I needed a printer to go with my Notebook and this one filled the bill. It isn't cheap but you seem to get what you pay for. When at home, adding the Auto Sheet Feeder makes it as convenient as a stationary printer but with a smaller footprint. Highly recommend this one for the Notebook users.

5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT PRINTER
I JUST BOUGHT THIS PRINTER FOR MY LAPTOP.
IT WAS VERY EASY TO INSTALL AND EASY TO WORK WITH. THE PRINTING IS GREAT, AND QUICK FOR A BUBBLE JET. THE COLOR IS VERY GOOD.

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply the best printer for your notebook
You can't buy a better printer for your notebook!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great, and long-lasting
I've had the predecessor (BJC-50) for about 4 years. It has been used heavily at home and one the road, and it has taken hard beatings. It has finally given out, and I'm going to buy another.

It's a truly amazing product. I can't think of another computer peripheral that still costs the same as it did 4 years ago -- and is still worth the high price. Why can't anyone else match it at a lower price? Darned if I know! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent entry level camera
I love the camera but it seems difficult to find some accessories which I had come to rely on with my old camera. I may just have to upgrade to another Canon SLR.

I bought the Rebel 2000 over a year and a half ago. My previous camera was a twenty-year-old Canon AE-1. I was very happy with the AE-1 but was having trouble seeing to focus in low-light situations. So far the Rebel 2000 has been a great camera - I think I've used every feature at least once. I added a 100 mm portrait lens.

My only dissatifaction is that I haven't been able to find a remote or off-camera shutter release that works. I was sold a Canon Remote Control RC1 which did not work. I like to use an off-camera shutter trigger of some kind in portrait and low-light conditions to minimize camera shake. I also can't find the cable to connect the hot shoe to my studio lights.

On the whole, I am happy with the Canon Rebel 2000.

4-0 out of 5 stars This is one of the best choices in cameras at present. . .
I work in a retail camera store and I have sold more Rebel 2000 camera kits than any other kind of SLR, and I have seen very few returns due to dissatisfaction. The Rebel 2000 has an impressive list of features such as multiple exposure, auto exposure bracketing, selectable focal points, and a full range of factory presets(such as auto for the beginner). Most beginning photographers find the camera's internal lcd screen easy to understand and the built in speedlite (flash) is also a huge plus with this camera. The only negative things that I have to say about the camera is it's weight. I have many older cameras and they were made out of real metal and this just can't compare. The only real option to escape a plastic bodied camera is to a. find an older one, b. get a professional grade camera, or c. go without since most every SLR company out there is making their cameras out of light-weight plastic. For example, the Nikon N 60 was one of the only cameras out there that was heavier than the Rebel 2000. The N60 is being replaced by the N65 and, from what I have been told, it will actually be lighter and better able to compete with the Canon Rebel 2000. In other words the N60 is being replaced with a camera that is full of features and light just like the Rebel 2000. It will be interesting to see how well the Rebel 2000 competes with the new Nikon N65 because they are both going to be in about the same price point.

So, if someone wants a very nice camera with a full range of Canon accesories and lenses to back it up--this is the camera. One could also upgrade to one of the many other Canon SLRs out there, but for the amateur to advanced amateur user this camera will last them for a very long time.

2-0 out of 5 stars falls apart after warranty expires
it's like this thing has a timer on it. When the warranty expires, it will literally fall apart. I say stay away from it. I'm kidding, it totally rules. You should buy it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Rebel 2000 body
The Rebel 2000 is great for a begining photographer looking for a high quality inexpensive camera. It has many features much more expensive cameras have. feature such as a built in flash, many different automatic modes, a very quiet shutter, and a light wight body. I highly recommend this camera. ... Read more
