What's the downside of Canon S60?

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by Cardamon Dave, Sep 7, 2005.

  1. Thinking about a 5MP camera with more manual control than a Pentax
    Optio, and a 28mm lens. Anyone have insights into the Canon Powershot
    S60?

    Very few downsides. I think it's a very nice little camera, but with minor
    sortcomings:

    1. You can't add accessory lenses for wide angle or telephoto.
    2. There's no hot shoe (I believe).
    3. Noise is a little high at higher ISOs.

    Other than that, it's pretty nice. Good battery life, nice sharp pictures,
    excellent color, great point and shoot camera.

    There are adapters for this.
