Summary: Comparing this to my Pentax Optio which died, this is not as easy to use. The quality of the pictures isn't any better. I chose it because it was supposed to be easy. I don;t find it so. Full Manual is not paper--but a PDF, which is a real pain to try to find out how to do something.
Summary: I got this for my parents since the buttons and screen were bigger than most small digital cameras. I thought it would be easy for them, turn on, point, auto focus, shoot. That wasn't the case. The build quality is a bit disappointing.. but given the price, i should've lowered my expectations.
Summary: I had hoped to get away with getting a quality pocket point-and-shoot camera for about $100. Big mistake. I have great appreciation for most Canon imaging products, but this one misses the mark (although I don't blame Canon at this price).
Summary: I bought the camera this spring. I wanted a small camera with wide angle lens and it was discounted at Office depot. I already had the Canon Digital Elph 780 and really liked it. Anyway I used the camera a few times and then it would not sync with the computer any more.
Summary: I read a bunch of reviews before purchasing this camera and they were mostly positive but I wish I would have picked a different camera. It is a decent simple camera for regular picture taking. But the zoom is awful. U get a blurred, unrecognizable picture when you zoom in.
Summary: This camera was to replace an old Elph, but instead it's my backup camera. The camera has problems focusing. I take a lot of pictures, and 99% are not crisp and in focus--especially faces. Colors are dull and washed out, and sometimes the color balance is off.
Conclusion: Very disappointed with this camera..Used in low-light settings and ended up with blurred pictures..It also hangs too long in between pictures so you end up missing shots.. Will go back to using my Canon Powershot SD790 IS.I never had a problem with this camera ever..
Pros: Simple controls/menu
Cons: Dim LCD, Poor Low-Light Performance, Short battery life, Flimsy Construction
