Product description

Product Information
Stylish, pocket size fully featured digital camera. With 13 flexible shooting modes and new Canon technologies, this is the ideal camera for taking photos in all situations. The PowerShot S50 is a versatile digital camera featuring a high quality 5.0-megapixel CCD and 3x optical zoom lens. Although stylish and compact, the features of this camera are aimed at advanced amateur users with 13 shooting modes and full manual controls for exposure and focusing.The PowerShot S50 incorporates a high resolution CCD sensor with 5.0 effective megapixels (approximately 5.3 megapixels in total). This sensor allows the camera to capture still images as large as 2592x 1944 pixels and movies as large as 320 x 240 pixels. The PowerShot S50 features a highly compact and sharp 3x optical zoom lens with a focal length of 35-105mm (35mm equivalent). The lens features a maximum aperture of f2.8 (wide angle) to f4.9 (telephoto). RAW mode allows you to obtain original image data, recording the image direct from the CCD without any image processing. The PowerShot S50 has 13 shooting modes, which can be selected from a mode dial on the top of the camera, including full manual controls, and a 'Custom' mode enabling you to set and save the camera parameters. The PowerShot S50 incorporates the DIGIC processor for even better color reproduction.The PowerShot S50 supports PTP, a standard protocol. This allows driver-less image communications with computers when combined with recent operating systems (Windows XP or Mac OS). A computer using this system will automatically select the correct drivers for the camera without needing to install them. On older operating systems a driver is still required to be installed. The PowerShot S50 is equipped with Direct Print which allows easy high-quality printing by simply connecting the camera via a cable to a CP-100 Card Photo printer or to the range of bubble jet direct printers. When the PowerShot S50 is connected to the CP-100, bordered or borderless prints can be selected and a trimming function allows a portion of a picture to be expanded and printed. Simple and quick direct printing is possible with the dedicated Card Photo Printers, producing images of 300 x 300 dpi on a credit card size or 4 x 6" print. The PowerShot S50 is compatible with Bubble Jet Direct Printers connecting direct via a cable and controlled by the camera through the direct print screen. Images can be printed onto A4 size paper to 6" x 4" sized paper.

I have sed story with Canon Powershot S50 5MP Digital Camera. First, I bought one 6 or 7 years ago and many other aplicable items with it such as four batteries, two chargers, several (8 or 9) Viking compact flash, picture copiers, and others. I have lost it. Last year I bought another one of the same kind and did not make a single picture. Some how I fergot it on vacation in the motel I was. Sed story indeed, but god camera, picture quality and easy to operate it made me decide to buy the third one. I am very satisfied with the third one as I was with the first one. I am photografy amateur for more then 60 years and I know cameras well.

I originally bought this product not even needing the camera. I had been looking for memory cards and batteries for this camera. I stumbled across this bundle that came with two batteries and two memory cards and i could have cared less about the camera, but as it turns out the camera that came with the batteries and memory cards was better than the one i had already bot.

This is my second S50 and I have been pleased with its simplicity to use but yet offering the variety of functions.
Also like the rechargeable batteries and ease of downloading to my computer. Full video functions and details of images all appreciated.

I like how it takes good pictures in about any event. It does not blur easy. It picks up light very well.

The only thing I do not like is that it turns of too easy if your finger just touches the little slide in the front but other then that it is a fantastic camera

Great camera, built like a tank, many adjustments, can't go wrong with a powershot. I own many cameras, at least 4 dslrs, and believe me for general purpose, this is all you need most of time.
