Summary: Incredibly lightweight! Seriously. I can't believe how SMALL this thing is. It also focuses very quickly and takes photographs very quickly as well. the only thing that I wasn't wild about is viewing preciously taken photos..

Summary: I got this as a point and shoot for my sister. She likes shooting photos and she has an iPhone so I thought this would be good for her to try out a full camera and not a phone with a camera. The touch screen is a bit slow, not too responsive as a phone is.
Summary: I am very pleased with this camera. It is compact, Wi-Fi enabled, easy to use and take great pictures. Picture quality is much better than what an iPhone can offer. Other reviewers mentioned about the sluggish touch screen response. This was also one of my concerns before the purchase.
Summary: It shorted out due to a little water in the microphone and I could not exchange it for a new one. Before this happened it had the greatest quality I have ever seen (Besides my T3i Rebel). A good buy except when a accedent happens...

Summary: My first digital camera was a Canon Elf with a 2 mg sensor. An outstanding little gem. But this 530 HS even with all of its' bells & whistles (touch screen and 10.1mp sensor) doesn't measure up.
Summary: I loved this little camera....took beautiful photographs. I would have given it 5 stars except for Canons repair people wanting to charge me more than the camera cost to fix it. One day I turned it on, the lens came out as it always did, but when I shut it off the lens did not retract.
Summary: Really didn't expect quality like this for almoust $200 from Canon. I'm a Canon fun, have had many over the years and they usually last, but this one must be some special money saving model for manufacturer. Had have two. First one simply died a month after purchase. Replaced.
