'The sound is fine, but given the limited 2GB of memory (which your music has to share with your photo albums) and minimal playback controls--shuffle or linear playback in directory order, with no playlists--it becomes just another awkward convergence device'
'The other features are impressive too: 3.5in LCD, 2GB of on-board memory, Zeiss 3x optical zoom lens, anti-blur technology, ISO 1000 sensetivity and a new shooting mode for twilight - perfect, apparently, for those romantic holiday sunset snaps.'
'optical zoom is only 3X optical'
'Sony has introduced a compact point-and-shoot camera with built-in wireless connectivity.'
'the Canon PowerShot S3 IS's combination of features, performance, and relatively compact design certainly gives megazoomers a compelling alternative.'
'S3 shooters have a fast, accurate, and very quiet ultra-zoom digital camera that's capable of capturing reasonably sharp handheld shots at shutter speeds that are beyond the ability of other (non IS) long zoom digital cameras.'
'It offers just about everything you want in a camera, from a big zoom lens to optical image stabilization to manual controls to a fancy movie mode.'
'The S3 IS fit well in my hand and felt sturdy, though it's light and fairly compact.'
'it can't save raw or uncompressed TIFF files, only JPEGs.'
'The S400's rechargeable lithium ion battery did not last long in our tests, holding out for only 214 shots, or about 1.25 hours.'
'Another quality Digital Elph in the PowerShot line, the PowerShot S400 is both elegant and powerful.'
'The 1.5-inch LCD viewfinder is sharp, bright, and responsive, but the optical viewfinder has no focusable diopter (a dial to correct the viewfinder for astigmatism, near- or farsightedness, and so on).'
