5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 25 Feb 2007
This review is from: Canon Powershot S3 IS Digital Camera[6MP 12 X Optical] (Electronics)
I bought this camera as a compact to carry with me when it is not practical to take my D-SLR with me, (Nikon D200). I wasted money buying a Samsung NV 7, and have spent a long time carefully evaluating different options.

I am finally satisfied with a compact digital camera. The S3 IS is a bit on the bulky side and only just fits in a jacket pocket. Images shot at over 400 ISO are very noisey and will not enlarge well.

However this camera is very well designed and a delight to use. It has virtually every feature you could want including a movie mode which I never use. The eye level view finder option is very useful, although not as clear as I would have liked, but very usable. The tilting LCD screen is brilliant, and the option to fold it away for protection is something all cameras could benefit from. Image quality is fine between ISO 80-200 and usable at 400. The image stabilization is excellent, the best I've tried and is a very real benefit. Overall this is an excellent well balanced camera with full manual control, ideal even for advanced photographers. I strongly recommend it.
