Summary: A real disappointment, and our family owns four Canons. This one, seemingly the most sophisticated, is thrown by tricky light situations. My son and I have both tried various options, from adjusting the white balance to the ISO level to shifting between auto and program.
Blurred pictures all the time from the stupid auto macro

Summary: Updated review from 2012-07-08. I cannot count the number of times that this camera has let me down. This camera has excellent sensor, excellent optics, excellent industrial design, but an absolutely horrible firmware.
Small and takes great pictures but doesn't last more than a week

Summary: I had to exchange the camera twice and finally gave up and just returned it. Both times I had it, it broke within a week of using it. I love Canon cameras and was really disappointed with the quality of this one.

Summary: I am a long time Canon owner. Have owned multiple PowerShot cameras now (this is my 3rd) and also two Canon SLRs. So, obviously I like Canon products. This camera, however, has given me so many problems that I feel compelled to share.
Summary: Feature-wise, this camera is exactly what I wanted. It takes decent pictures and video and the zoom feature works while taking video. I bought this as an upgrade for the Canon SD730IS which I have used a lot over the last few years.
Summary: EDIT #2 (December 2011). I become more and more disappointed in this camera as time goes by. Just reviewed loads of photos from this summer/fall and I hate to say it, but -- they suck! My former Canon AS1100 (vintage 2008) took photos soooooo much better than thing.
