Pros  - Automatic lens shutter
Cons  - wide angle
- little manual control
Conclusion Little wide angle, but the most natural image in this price range, average low-light performance, and even some useful manual control.With this offer Canon stays just below the 300 Euro threshold (internet prices), but still lies above the competition, who show other strengths and cost about 50 less. Hence, those looking for a camera in these price regions should make their decision based on tolerable weaknesses, which are distributed differently among the tested cameras.With little wide angle, small sensors, lean low-light performance and few manual functions, it is hard to see any reason to choose one of the smaller Canon models, given a budget of 500 Euro.The 2010 competition simply has more to offer.
