Cannon Powershot SD500 takes nice pictures
I like this camera. It takes really nice pictures, it's easy to use and it has some nice features like no flash, delayed shot, outdoor, portrait, etc. The battery seems to last a really long time, though I wish the low battery indicator would come on sooner. It feels like it comes on and then only minutes later, the camera shuts off completely. The battery charges very quickly which is nice. For a compact digital camera, it has a really short lag time. Meaning, it doesn't take a long time for it to gear up for the next picture. It still does need some time, but much less than other small digital cameras I've tried. You have to be careful of the wrist strap. It has a hard piece on it that got smashed against our screen and cracked the screen. I took the strap off it after that. I also found that we really needed a screen protector to protect against scratches and scuffs. Even fingerprints and faceprints come off easier with a screen protector. I dont like that this camera doesn't take SDHC cards, only SD cards because they are hard to find in stores anymore.
