Piece of junk.
10 September 2014
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.
Nice camera, but despite numerous tries, I could not get the wifi to work

Summary: The only reason I decided to replace my perfectly functional Canon Elph was for wifi capabilities - and I can't get that to work. Despite 2 attempts to change my password on Canon's iMAGE site, I can't even log in. I suspect the camera is fine, but Canon's web capabilities seem dubious.
WIFI doesn't work company said no date in sight for fix

Summary: Wifi doesn't work using the APP or mobile device. I corresponded with the company and they said while they are working on a fix, they have no release date in sight. Since the WIFI and compatibility with IPAD is the only reason I purchased this camera I will be returning it promptly.
Summary: Not a wise choice. Ended up returning it for the Canon S100. Much much better camera for the same price point.
Pros: Very small (although this is also listed as a con), 12x Zoom, 28mm lens, lots of good features
Cons: Too small (cumbersome in even medium sized woman's hands), Touch screen not responsive, slow software, tiny battery, difficult to take good pictures in auto mode, limited manual mode, glossy black exterior shows every fingerprint.
Summary: I was so excited to get this camera. Wi-Fi enabled, touch screen, 12x optical zoom, etc, etc. Can't say how disappointed I was after an hour of use. Touch screen is slow, touch screen accuracy was inaccurate, picture quality was no better than the small ELPH I'd been using for years.
Summary: I went to local retailer to test run before buying, and I'm glad I did. Between me and the store clerk, we could barely operate the UI touch screen, never mind figure out the Wifi. Sorry, Canon but this one needs some work.
Summary: I spent 6 hours trying to get this camera to connect to my computer using the WiFi technology. Every time it said "Connection Failed". I am not a tech expert but I do have a lot of experience with digital cameras, computers and smartphones and I have never had as much trouble as this.
Slow UI, Only touch based UI, Body material (White) issue.

Summary: I choose this camera for wifi transfering high quality compact digital camera. Overall picture quality is not bad but not as great as other compact cameras. This camera only support micro SD card for reducing its body size but it is not smaller than my TX10.
