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.
Conclusion: It's unfortunate that Canon (and every other company) has stopped making a camera with a viewfinder. So many people want a digital camera with viewfinder - it's impossible to see in sunlight without it. This camera does an excellent job. Being able to use AA batteries was also a big plus.
Pros: good battery life, Nice features/settings, excellent image quality, durable, Bright LCD, Simple controls/menu, easy to use
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.
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!
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.
Conclusion: After doing much research on websites, I went to a store yesterday and bought this camera. I wanted one that uses REGULAR AA batteries - not rechargeable - have only used it for several indoor and outdoor pictures so far, and got very good results. I really like the way it feels in my hand.
Summary: This camera has all the features I needed, easy to understand which was important for someone like me, older yet not the wiser when it comes to technology. Shipping was prompt and actually came before date promised.
