Summary: I have only had this a couple days but so far I like it. I have taken a couple pictures and a short movie clip. They all look great. One word of caution though. I did not see where it said it used a micro-SD card. At the bottom of the ad it said some people also bought.. it showed a 32 GB SD card which I also purchased, It takes a micro-SD card so I could not use it until I got the micro-SD card. That was the only disappointment so far.
Summary: I had a PowerShot many years ago, back in the "film days", and loved. I have another digitial Canon as well, so I know quality when I continue to purchase it time after time after time.......Love Canon products!
Summary: My last camera finally died on me and I wasn't sure what to buy because there are so many choices out there. I just did a lot of research and found that this seemed to be the camera for me. They have a great reputation and it's very easy to use. I'm sure I will have many years of use with this camera.
Summary: After checking the reviews and ratings I ordered this for my daughter who loves a separate camera for her pictures instead of just here Nexus 5 cell phone. She loves it and me and my son who do professional camera work are very impressed. Would buy again.
Summary: After learning all the ends and outs of the menu system, which can be rather daunting, I am very happy with this camera. You may have read some scathing reviews about the total on-screen menu system and it is a bear work through, but like anything else once you've made it past the curve it becomes second nature.
Summary: You can't beat the size, weight and picture quality of this amazing camera. My iPhone is always with me, so I always have a camera available, but the quality of the shots doesn't begin to compare with the ELPH. For travel, hiking, mountain climbing, outdoor shots or family events, it just does everything very well. And it fits in your shirt pocket. This is my second ELPH. I bought my first one five years ago for a trip to Italy.
Summary: Love this camera. My other one was not working anymore and I wanted something that had a good zoom and was easy to operate. The only issue I have is with the review of the pictures, the touchscreen has to be touched hard sometimes. Zoom is great. Also, I still need to figure out a better way to delete from the memory chip. Also, they should advertise that you need to purchase a micro-SD card for the camera. It held me up a bit until I could get to the store to purchase.
Summary: I first used this camera on a trip to Seattle on a cloudy, RAINY weekend. I took it to a lot of outdoor events in that low-light environment as well as indoor museums. I gotta say, I am impressed! The settings on the camera allow for low light, as well as night scenes with low light. The pictures are stunning! Also much faster than my previous camera! The Wifi setup wasn't too hard.
