Summary: This camera had a great review in Good Housekeeping Magazine, which is why I bought it. Unfortunately, I should have done some more research before buying. On the plus side, it is very easy to use and compact. It also has a high megapixel value. On the downside, it has a low optical zoom at only 5x. I was at a friend's wedding recently and couldn't get a good picture of the bride and groom because we were too far back in the reception hall.
Summary: I like the camera, however the CD that came with it had a program that Canon no longer uses. I had to call Canon and get help in getting my pictures on the computer. I will continue to use it and keep trying through trial and error to get what I expected from it. The people at Canon are very nice to work with and I'm sure I will be calling them again.
Summary: It was a good camera, it had a lens error in less than a month though, I had only taken it out of my camera case, turned it on, and it malfunctioned. Not the seller's fault though! And they refunded my money for it fully and were easy to work with!
Summary: Camera was not as sturdy as I had hoped. It is made of a plastic type of material and not a more solid metal-like substance. Buttons also feel like could easily break. I would recommend spending a bit more and getting a better quality camera.
Summary: This camera is a great point and shoot camera. If you are used to digital, then this is a great choice. Great video, which I suggest if you are taking pics of small children, or moving objects. If, however, you learned to shoot on a 35mm, you will have a learning curve with this camera, as there is a 3-5 second lag time between when you press the button, and when the actual shutter functions.
Summary: We have had Canons in the past and have been pleased with them. This one although when it works takes very sharp pictures on Auto it sometimes does not flash when it should and flashes sometimes when it does't need to. Also takes very long to shoot at times up to 6 or 7 seconds while it goes through it's face recognition etc... My wife likes our old one better even though the screen no longer works...
