I just got my hands on an SD300 ultra compact digital camera and i wanted to talk about it. When i shop for a digital camera i always look in the ultra compact secion, i find that a small camera that i can take with me everywere i go is more important then the images i take. I am on the move a lot and i need something to take with me. A friend of mine wanted my older S500 canon so i gave it to him when i ordered the SD300. At first its smaller then the S500 (much thinner about 30%-40%) and feels much lighter when you are carrying around with you. I went to the beach for an hour and the pics i took were amazing, althou its a 4MP camera the quality of the pics that came out were much better. The cideo mode 3 option, Standard, Fast frame rate (works great for football, and when running) and compact which is 160 Pixels. You can change the video quality on the frams per sec between 15 fps and 30fps. When i was looking for a camera i needed something with atleast 640x480 video since i use it a lot. The bottons on the camera are easy to get to and the camera feels very nice in your hands, althou teh bottons are very close and small you get used to it after a few times use. The LCD is much larger then the S500 and very clear, there is also a viwefinder which helps when you dont use the flash and want to rest the camera between your forehead and your hands. All in all this camera has great image quality, spurb video quality and its all in a tiny small body. I love this camera and if someone needs images he can PM (privet message me) or email on email@example.com and i can hook him up with some images. So far this is the best camera i have used and if your in the market for an ultra compact then you should try this camera out. Here are some pics i got from my camera phone 640x480 i hope you like them.
