Good but overheats and has issues.

Summary: I was really excited to get this in the mail. The item shipped really fast and the seller had it packaged nicely. Everything was included as stated and the camera had no cosmetic defects. However the battery on the camera and the camera overheats after about 20 mins of use.
Summary: At first we loved this unit. However, when we tried making videos of live music, the sound recording system proved to be not at all up to par. In fact, the sound switches randomly from right to left and back, so that the recordings are essentially not usable. Very disappointing.
Summary: This is so much better than the 150 dollar sony camera that we had. Takes crisp clean pictures even in fast action. Movie quality is outstanding. My old camera would constantly refocus and get blurry and you could hear the camera zooming and focusing constantly. Not with this camera.
Summary: I may return it. It doesn't have an eyepiece, which is my preferred to see my photo subjects. (The screen, in high light, reflects and makes seeing the subjects difficult.) Also, I am speculating that the specialty battery may be difficult or expensive to replace.
Summary: I bought this camera to take on a long awaited trip to New Zealand. Less than two months later the shutter was not fully opening, so the upper left and lower right side of nearly all the pictures I took in New Zealand had to be cropped.
Meh! Canon could have done a LOT better for what they were charging for this camera!

Summary: 1- Uses Canon batteries only, buy spares if you plan to shoot all day without charging. 2- Photo quality is good. 3- LCD screen is not so good in BRIGHT daylight. 4- Video is saved in Quick-time format (some devices do not support format).
Summary: The camera has some nice features and takes good photos. The zoom is superior to many similar cameras. Battery life however makes this camera not very functional. A day out with the family leaves you wondering if the battery will last. Much worse than last Canon camera that I owned.
Summary: I purchased this because I was looking for a compact, travel, long zoom, digital camera with point and shoot capability along with some manual controls. I wanted a camera I could carry in my pocket that had at least 10X optical zoom capability.
