Whenever the topic of digital cameras comes up you will eventually find yourself talking about megapixels....and with 4 megapixels this camera is a heavy hitter. You get great looking pictures with this Canon. More importantly the quality of the other components - like the lens and image sensor - is excellent.
You can find other 4 megapixel cameras for less money but they won't produce the same crisp images as this one. The s45 Canon Powershot is a quality product.
It's easy enough to use for beginners with its auto settings and there's enough manual controls to make even the most serious hobbyist a happy camper!
I can only find a couple of areas for improvement...and these are just some personal preferences. The memory card that it ships with is only 32MB - you'll be wanting more pretty quickly - and the software used to transfer images to your computer could use some help. I find it's not as user friendly as it could be.
Overall, great camera! I'd recommend it.
A friend of mine has been smiling ever since he got his!
