Conclusion: I have used several other brands of cameras. This canon camera is easy to use and by far much superior to other cameras. I am a beginner using this camera and feel like a pro at the quality of pictures it takes
Pros: good battery life, quiet, Nice features/settings, Quick Start-up time, excellent image quality, Superior build quality, Bright LCD, Solid Operation, Lightweight/Portable, Simple controls/menu, easy to use
Summary: Since I was already very familiar with the Canon line, I ordered this as an upgrade to my previous Canon. It has more extras than my old one. I love it and I'm sure it will serve me well for years to come.
Summary: I bought this as a gift to my husband and have occasionally used it. The camera is easy to use. The two lens work great especially the wider lens. The bag is sturdy but can only accommodate one lens and extra battery. The strap is flimsy though.
