"great picture quality,editor has horrible "navigator""
28 November 2011
Pros: picture quality is great, especially got it for close-up macros of small items, and low light detail; it delivers quite well.
Cons: editor has a horrible useless unnecessary little 1-inch thing called a "navigator" that floats on and obstructs the image while editing-- can't get rid of it! editor only does one function at a time, many clicks and frame changes to edit one photo>:(
Summary: I loooove Canon PowerShots, I've owned roughly 6 of them in the past 6 years (Yes, SIX) and every time one breaks, I go and purchase the next and newest PowerShot model because I love them so much. I find the interface so easy to use as a non-technical user, and the camera has always been one of most compact ones on the market so I just keep it in my purse 24/7 (because let's face it, most photo-worthy moments are not the ones you plan for..
Excerpt: I purchased one of these little numbers to replace a Panasonic TZ-6 which I considered very overrated, and is intended to compliment my DSLR. I was immediately impressed by the small size, and classy looks. I have owned Canon IXUS compacts before, so I found operating the camera very intuitive. I have found image quality to be good, noise control particularly is very good.
