    Dh broke our camera awhile ago. I was telling my MIL the other day the funny story of how he broke it.

    So today I open the door and there is a package. I open it and there's a camera.My MIL sent me a camera.:thumbsup2 I had no idea she was doing this.


    I received a Canon Powershot A710 IS. I have no idea about cameras.
    Is this good camera?
    Does it take decent pictures?
    Is it hard to use?
    Is it better than my old camera?I had a LUMIX DMC-FX9.

    Any info would be great.

    Thanks.

    Here's a full review of the A710 IS.

    To answer your direct questions (based on the reviews/specs):

    Is this good camera? Yes.

    Does it take decent pictures? Yes.

    Is it hard to use? Nope, no harder than any other P&S (but, it does have manual controls if you want them).

    Is it better than my old camera?I had a LUMIX DMC-FX9. It's got some advantages over your old camera (more controls/more zoom) and your old camera had some advantages over it (better LCD/faster high-speed mode).

    Yep. A new camera is MUCH better than a broken camera! :lmao:

    Sorry, I could resist no longer...

    I'm sure you will enjoy that camera. After all, it is a Canon!

    I have this camera and LOVE it! It takes beautiful pics. I'm sure you'll love it. I learned a lot about it from my new favorite website, Steve's Digicams.
