Summary: I really have enjoyed this little camera. It is light-weight and very portable. It is more versatile than my IPhone camera. It was inexpensive. It has held up to weekend trips and somewhat shabby treatment. We can do the basics easily with it--the we being me, the mom, and our special needs daughter, and not the more tech-savvy hubby.
Summary: This is the 2nd Canon Power Shot I have purchased that has failed in less than 2 years. Have been unable to get adequate response from Canon. I sent in an e-mail but the response was clearly boiler plate and it was apparent they my e-mail message had not been read. Phone support hours are extremely restrictive, only on weekdays and only until 8- 8PM PST. Kinda of hard to contact them in non-working hours when you live in the Central time zone.
Summary: I don't like the micro sd card it is too hard to get out when downloading pictures, and you have to carry an adapter with you if printing pictures at a kiosk. I do like the purple color, and the size and the pictures that it takes. I would have preferred to have a printed manual instead of having to download one. I have been using Canon cameras for many years. A granddaughter has a Nikkon which takes rapid pictures - I would like that feature...... mine is slow.
Summary: Great camera!! I took it with me to Africa and Ireland. It easily fit in my pocket during the two safaris I went on and through all the castles I climbed and toured. Easy to download and recharge.
Summary: My wife's beloved Sony T-1 camera finally bit the dust so I got her this one to replace it. She couldn't be happier as it's just as compact as her old Sony (meaning that it's always in her pocketbook) is even easier to use, has a larger LCD viewing screen, a more powerful zoom lens and a better flash. Plus, it's pink and that just thrills her.
Summary: This camera only lasted a little over a year and then the lens quit working. Same thing happened with a similiar Cannon camera, only that one lasted about three years. I'm through with Cannon.
