Summary: do not buy this camera. cannon purposely disabled videos from being longer then 10 minutes to force people to buy separate digital video cameras. otherwise it takes great pictures but i was looking forward to taking videos longer then 10 minutes!
Summary: I bought this camera to replace a 7 year old Cannon that I lost. One reason for choosing this camera was the special battery, as I have trouble getting "reusable" AA batteries to charge properly and hold a charge.
Summary: I got this camera the end of January and I absolutely loved it! I was very careful with it and never dropped it or left it where my boys could get it.

Excellent videos and outdoor shots, indoors not so great
6 December 2011
Summary: I really liked this camera at first. Videos are awesome, as well as outdoor shots. Now that I've tried all weekend to get a decent indoor shot, the love has gone. I will give it another chance in the coming week, but probably will return it.
