Excerpt: Be warned, Canon is no longer is including the USB cables with this and other cameras. The transfer cable is made only for Canon Cameras, so you will need to also buy one. Just the battery and wall charger is all you get now.
Pros: Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good in Low Light, Short Lag Time
Excerpt: I got this camera a week ago so I have very limited experience taking photos with it. One of the main reasons that I bought it was that it was a point and shoot with a viewfinder. I immediately discovered that the viewfinder is very limited. Here's why: 1.
Excerpt: I purchased my G16 in April 2014 and after using it several times, discovered I was having the same issues my G12 had, exposures that turned out completely white or under exposed images even though the flash functioned. I sent the camera back for warranty repair and hope that solves the problem.
Excerpt: Within a week of opening the box, my Powershot (G16) failed, again. because of its fragile lens construction. My former G10 succumbed to 'lens error' after 3 years, the G16, which is noticeable flimsier, lasted a week of light use, handling with kid gloves.
Also, the battery life is much shorter.
Pros: Good Low-Light Performance, Nice features/settings, excellent image quality, Bright LCD, Lightweight/Portable, Simple controls/menu, easy to use
Cons: Short battery life, Flimsy Construction, excess heat during moderate use, over mechanised
Summary: Very nice package. But I do not like the camera. Rear screen washes out when camera is held on the vertical. Camera is also hard to hold. Nice pictures but viewfinder is not accurate. I would not buy this camera again.
I would not recommend this. Just purchase the camera and separately purchase ...

Summary: This kit has a case that is HUGE; it can fit 2 cameras inside it. Some of the accessories included already come with the camera, so you are paying extra. I would not recommend this. Just purchase the camera and separately purchase a case that fits.
