Summary: I used to have an older version of this camera, which I got on very well with, but the lens became stuck and then it was useless - actually that has happened to me twice now. So I thought I would buy a more modern version. Well sadly I do not like it at all. It has a touch screen, with really complicated information and I am constantly finding myself with some weird configuration that takes me ages to unscramble or I just have to switch off and start again.
Summary: I was looking for a new camera as mine was about 6 years old. I wanted a Canon IXUS again and liked the reviews of this one. Amazed to see the price difference between the various colours and chose the pink based solely on the fact that it was the cheapest! Takes good photos, using the touch screen take a bit of getting used to but is quite easy really.
Summary: takes really nice pictures, lovely looking and very compact. The only problem I have with it is that it takes a few seconds from pressing the button to actually taking the photograph -annoying, especially when you are trying to photograph your kids!
Summary: First time I have bought a camera without advice from my son. He has given it the thumbs up, ''Good choice Mother!'' Not sorted all the options yet but as an easy to use, point and press, which I wanted, it seems great, excellent pics.
Summary: I use a Canon EOS M for my professional work (I'm a photographer who shoots model portfolios for a living), however this is still one of my favorite cameras to use. The touchscreen is fantastic, an excellent wide-angle lens, and image quality has only a little more noise than my EOS M with its APS-C Sensor. Images are bright in low light situations, without need of a flash.
Summary: I would recommend this camera to any enthusiastic amateur. It is lightweight and easy to carry and operate. There's good magnification and you are able to use it successfully in bright sunlight or for night time shots. Altogether an excellent camera for the price…..very good value for money.
