  • At a bargain store picking up something cheap? Ask the shopkeeper to give you a bigger discount…
  • This is not really a big deal.
  • Excellent for a small and fairly cheap camera…
  • The competitive price is nice to see too…
  • No manual controls (maybe not a problem at this price point…
  • The Canon is a pretty good camera in most respects it's well priced, mostly good performance…
  • Fantastic performance and a great price - couldn't be happier…
  • The most basic and cheap camera would fire the flash if needed in auto mode.- There's a totally useless "artistic effect" mode on the camera which creates a series of photos with different tint effects…
  • The price is not bad for what you get.
  • After this problem and reading about all the others having problems with more expensive versions; this will be my last Gigabyte board - sadly…
