Good camera for the money!

Summary: I got this for my son for a class at school- it's very small and light, easy to put in a small case and carry in a backpack without adding a lot of weight, I borrow it when I don't want to carry a larger camera. It has good features & takes great pictures but it has minimal buttons and was a little confusing to figure out how to operate all of the features.
It was a nice size for slipping into a pocket or purse, but the battery situation was not suitable.

Summary: It didn't have some of the features I was looking for. I like to have batteries that are easily replaced, not one that has to be recharged. I also like to be able to store the battery in the camera when not in use. The battery for this camera needed to be removed when not in use.
Summary: I loved the Canon ELPH I had before, but dropped it once too many times, so had to get a replacement. This is a nice camera. It has different features, some unnecessary. The one thing it does not do that my previous camera did was take sound recordings. This was a feature I used more than you'd think when wanting to record what was going on without the video (like in church or at a school concert).
Summary: This camera is sleek, and easy to use. The picture quality is perfect for me as an amateur photographer who really just wants photos of her kids and the occasional scenery shot. My only complaint is that this camera doesn't self-stabilize as quickly as some others that I have had, but I believe that it makes up for this by taking a better quality photo overall. To add, my 6 year old and 8 year old can use it and get quality pictures too!
Nice camera for light use; some irritating design decisions with external buttons, menus

Summary: I had been using a Canon Powershot 1200 IS for a long, long time, and while the picture quality was normally pretty good, it had a limited number of sizes/resolutions it could photograph in. I am a light-use camera user (mostly use the camera for vacation pictures and cute pet moments).

Summary: I have had the ELPH cameras for the past ten years and recently bought this camera for a great deal on amazon for a friend who is having a destination wedding. I have always been please with the use friendliness of the camera and the quality of pictures, and will buy this camera again!
Summary: Great pics in a small package. I love this little camera. It has features that I havent even tried yet but am looking forward to exploring. Its a little boxy and the opening for the cable is kind of stiff but other than that I like how easy it is to use and carry around.
