This camera represents excelent value for money - I paid around £180 2nd hand as new in September 2007. The picture quality is very good overall, the only thing which is slightly lower quality is the edges of branches against a bright sky.
The super macro mode is amazing and you can touch objects on the lens, provided adequate lighting, for incredible detail. The zoom is among the best on the market at this price and I use it almost every time I take photos.
The camera is very easy and quick… Read Full Review

Since I am a Canon user I miss the face finder… Read Full Review

I bought this camera for our daughter who wanted to start wildlife photography. I wasn't prepared to buy the kind of specialist (and therefore expensive) equipment which is required for this area of photography, but reviews indicated that the Canon S3 looked to be a good bet. Lens focal length was obviously an important factor here and the 12x zoom on the S3 gives a 35mm equivalent of 432mm at the top end - an excellent compromise. Image stabilization is available and this reduces camera shake… Read Full Review
