Summary: It's a great camera and looks really elegant, by the look and feel in your hands you can tell that it's a better quality camera. I love that it has 5x zoom and 12 mp. It's not the smallest one, and not really one of the cheap ones, but I bought it to have it for a longer period of time to take great...
Summary: I like it very much, I love its design, I like its selecting wheel, although I think it could be difficult to use or control. The quality of its videos is amazing, they seem a video camera recording, and you can zoom while recording. I'm very happy with it!!
Summary: This is the first time I tried Canon. I wanted to try different brands of point and shoot cameras and I've had a Nikon and Sony in the past. I thought it was time to buy a new one when my Sony of 4 years started to suddenly not respond appropriately.
Summary: This is our third PowerShot digital camera, with our first dating back to 2003. The camera is fast and the auto settings for photos do a very good job of getting decent photos in all sorts of conditions. The LCD is very nice and remains fairly visible even on a sunny beach.

Summary: This camera is compact and takes good pictures. It's macro mode (taking close-up pictures of small objects) is really awesome. One of the best I've seen in consumer cameras. I didn't quite like the zoom lever since it's too short and you end up almost using your fingernails to move it.
Summary: Easy to use, FANTASTIC pictures via the 12MP capture, video turns out incredible (even takes HD video), perfect camera for wonderful pictures. Only gave it four stars because it's not great in backlit situations, but it's so feature rich that this issue is probably my fault.
Summary: Love this camera, is small, compact and the most important is take picture sharp, nicely and easy to use. The only problem I got is, it makes sound like..rgh..rgh...not to loud, but sometimes is annoying. I'm not sure, that's OK sound or something wrong with camera, I just had it almost 2 weeks.
Summary: The resolution and size of the screen on this camera is absolutely incredible. Pictures and video look really sharp. Screen is anti-reflective too. HD video is outstanding. Taped a table tennis match, the video and sound were both extremely clear and the movement was incredibly smooth, due to the 30...
Summary: I blindly bought this camera as it was the top of the range in the Canon Compact category and thought it should have everything the lower models do and a bit more. I also bought the "SanDisk Extreme III SDHC 8Gb High Performance Card - 30Mb/s edition" and the "DC-770 Camera Case".
Summary: I bought this camera to take pictures of my daughter's graduation and was not disappointed with either! The picture quality is excellent and enabled me to enlarge distant group shots without loss of clarity.
