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.
Can't recommend this Canon if you're looking for sharp jpegs right ...

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 love this camera, but unfortunately I can only give it 3 stars. I purchased the camera in April of 2013 and have had way too many problems with it - I have had to send the camera in three times now for repair.
Summary: It's a pity but after several attempts, a few emails and then being handed off to tech support and a phone connection, the camera (or the laptop or Maverick) will not allow a Wi-Fi conniption from the camera to the computer.
Summary: Camera is small, pictures are good, WiFi makes it easier to transfer pictures from the camera to my Android phone (using a Canon app available free on Googel Play). One problem I have with this camera is that the battery is small and does not last long, especially when using WiFi.
Summary: Camera is nice overall with you expected on Canon. But the battery does not last long at all, even without using wifi. I went out for a couple hours and it is out. It is really not realistic at all if it can not even last for a day.
Summary: The camera itself is lovely. However, the digital camera solution disk is not readable in my Mac. So I have no access to the manual and I am not sure about downloading images. Haven't found a solution on the Canon website, but I will keep looking. What a pain.
