Summary: I am a dermatology resident and I love to take photos of skin conditions for studying & teaching. This camera is great. It takes excellent, well-focused macro images. It is very easy to use, focuses and processes quickly, and runs for a reasonable amount of time on one charge. The software included for downloading / managing photos also works well.
Summary: I bought this camera for a trip to New Zealand. It captured the beautiful landscapes and waterfalls wonderfully and Canon makes a great camera, in general. Very happy with my purchase... And I love the purple! It's a bit different of a shade (hard to describe).
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.
