Excerpt: I have had this camera for several years and I just love it. I have a camera on my phone but when it comes to taking pictures I love using this better. my granddaughter has a beautiful paint horse and this is great for stills, action stills and video. I carry it with me all the time.
I really loved this camera--until it quit working after 6 weeks!

Summary: I liked everything about this camera: so small and lightweight and convenient, takes good pictures, retracting lens (to keep the lens protected and to make the camera compact), nice zoom, easy to use, batteries last and last--and, above all, I need a compact digital camera with a viewfinder as most...
Summary: I am in no way a photographer, If anything I bought this for my father who is technologically illiterate and hasn't accustomed to camera phones. What Can I say picture quality is awesome and the Camera was smaller and lighter than I imagined it would be.
Finally a good brand, compact with optical viewfinder

Summary: I choose this Camera because it is a brand well known and the decision fator was the optical viewfinder, very dificult to find in the actual cameras ( I dont know why because it is impossible to have a good vision in the screen with much light).
Incredible Camera for Quality and Price Plus--AND Has View Finder!

Summary: It's impossible to find a small camera at this price point with a view finder, but Canon has done it! The photos are incredible and the batteries last for ever in this camera! I am so pleased with the quality of the photos and the ease of using this camera. Highly recommend!
Summary: This takes horrible pictures. You need to hold the camera perfectly still, click the button without moving the camera at ALL, and then keep holding the camera still till it slowly takes the picture. Unreal! Keep pulling it out to use and think it can't be as bad as I remember. Wrong, it is that bad.
Summary: Takes good pictures for the price but it is very slow. You will not be able to use this camera for moving subjects or for low light photography. It is only slightly better than a cell phone camera, and that is due to the optical zoom.
Great pictures, small camera, view finder and very affordable.

Summary: This camera is great. It performs in full light almost as well as my EOS DSLR, but I can put in my pocket. View finder is great in full sunlight. Fantastic price - takes wonderful pictures. Highly recommend.
Summary: If anyone is looking for a camera with "DUAL" viewing option, LCD screen as well a PEEP HOLE to view that subject material in bright sunlight, this camera is for you, great price, great camera and great Canon customer service. Everything you want in a point & Shoot pocket camera.
Summary: I especially like the view finder... great for taking pictures in bright sunlight when you can't normally see the screen. Easy to use, I even figured out how to easily shut off the flash! (Nearly impossible with my previous camera!) Easy to download photos to my desktop.
