Summary: This camera was bought to replace an older canon camera, takes decent pictures and videos, and the 8x optical zoom is a bonus that my older camera did not have pleased with the camera, no better quality than my previous 14 mega pixel camera, but that's more to do with the type of lens the camera has.
Excerpt: In modern people think of smart-phone with camera feature. But digi cam will always have it's own existance. This Canon camera is best suit for the middle class people who want to capture their best moments in camera. This is very light and easy to operate. I would prefer it more than Sony cybershot or Nikon coolpix at this range. So start using this amazing feature camera and enjoy.
Pros: Easy to Use, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Summary: This camera is just what I wanted and I am using it quite a lot now. I was disappointed the memory card was not included or the 2 pin plug for the charger. These items had to be purchased before I could get started. I find the camera easy to use with good quality images.
