"Extremely small."

After over 10,000 pictures, my Nikon 26486 operates perfectly in every aspect. I’m now wading through the manual before heading out to shoot photos. I bought this Wireless Point & Shoot Digital Camera for a trip I'm taking abroad in February. Auto works well for me once outdoors or in well lit rooms. Its great for quick pictures everywhere with clear pictures.

Nikon 26486 Final Thoughts

"Fantastic camera."

I have yet to use the tripods but I'm excited to give them a try eventually. The stability at long zoom was fantastic. I was honestly surprised that I could find anything like this on Amazon. Overall good camera and value but needs improvements in the hardware. I did buy some rechargeable batteries to use in it.

"Love my new Canon 8191B001!"

The stability at long zoom was fantastic. The Canon 8191B001 is small and fast. The image I've shared was taken from over 15 feet away with just the optical zoom. Takes great low light & fireworks pictures. Me and my husband have planned a trip to Bahamas.

It is easy to use and takes clear pictures. You'll be glad you bought this one. I did buy some rechargeable batteries to use in it. Where this Canon 8191B001 really shines though is the video recording oddly enough. I will update this report once I have used it more.

"The zoom is terrific."

5 seconds to wait for auto focus is not going to kill me. The zoom is incredible as well.

This camera far exceeded my expectations.

"Very worth the buy."

I like that while I am learning I can rely on the IA mode to take great shots for me. I was pretty skeptical buying another point and shoot. Ergonomics count, especially when you get used to Nikon's excellent system--wow! I’m now wading through the manual before heading out to shoot photos. This is great because my mother likes the viewfinder and I like the LCD.
