5.0 out of 5 stars Cheap, simple , high quality, 2 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent beginners camera--and i certainly am a beginner. Very high quality stills, very realistic colours, A4 prints v good. Canon reckon up to A2 (small poster).Camera thin and very light--but no memory card in box. Separate ,small light lithium battery charger, so have to take charger or spare charged battery on holiday. On the other hand this allows smaller lighter camera. Camera connects to pc through mini usb on camera side--cable also not in box!
Three levels of complexity -- auto-which produces excellent results in the vast majority of conditions--extreme close up, into the sun, people etc. Live--which adds colour and brightness control, scenes such as snow, low light, fireworks etc and probably most importantly an image stabilisation mode(IS). Auto does not include IS unlike Ixus 150,155. Have found that 145 auto not good for low light indoors with no flash as often required in museums,art galleries, churches. Here IS mode produces excellent results. Haven't tried low light scene yet.
Third level complexity is program mode giving detailed control over exposure,focus etc(including ability to lock focus on moving object eg dog). I will probably never use this.
Purchased 16GB card which gives 3,500 stills at highest resolution(16 mpixel)
Camera also shoots vga or hd video--excellent quality but no IS and with very small light camera means results a bit jerky. Very little control over video colours etc--zoom works though. 16GB card can store several hours HD video.
So recommend order mini usb/usb cable, memory card and spare battery if you don't have them.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best, 3 July 2009
This review is from: Piano Concertos 1 & 2 (Audio CD)
One of the best recordings of the two Chopin Piano Concertos. Orchestra better than the Perahia recording , playing more mature than Kissin recording. Second Piano Concerto not quite as good as Ashkenazy/LSO--which is for me the best on the market(but no First Piano Concerto on this disc). Very beautifully played by Lang Lang.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful set, 13 Mar. 2009
This is the most woderful set of Mozart Piano Concertos-especially in the newly remastered version which gives much improved sound quality.Murray Perahia and the ECO are ideally suited to these sublime, sensitive works.

3.0 out of 5 stars not bad value, 9 Jun. 2007
Actually this model does not need mains power as a previous reviewer suggests. It has proved reliable and the sms function is useful- but it is very slow to respond when typing sms messages. Also you have to take the legs off to replace the batteries which is awkward and very difficult for those without strong fingers.There is no speaker phone or volume adjustment for the handset.Its pretty basic really-has got caller display though.
