Summary: Pros: Small (but not tiny); typically straightforward Canon controls; easy to adjust; a multitude of available settings; high quality photos for a point-and-shoot. Flexible options from auto to full manual. Low-light capability better than smaller point-and-shoots.
Excerpt: I really love this little happy snap. It takes great pictures, and it saves me from dragging around my D300. I'll just nitpick on my biggest complaint- the pop of flash. Let's face it, you are going to get red-eye whether you have a pop up, or built in/stationary flash so why have something that...
Summary: I am a serious photographer with some high end Nikon digital cameras and lenses. But I like to have a compact digital camera in my pocket. This is my fifth compact digital... and absolutely the best compact digital I have worked with.
Summary: Purchased this as a gift to replace an older non-S canon camera. Not quite as slim as the older Canon that it replaced but still slim enough to be pocketable. Picture quality is far superior and achieves the low light quality that the gift receiver was looking for.
Summary: I purchased this camera for a travel camera. One that was small yet powerful and took great pictures. Got a great price for it, and believe once I remember to hold my hands to the side, it will be perfect. I gave it a 4 star because the flash is located in an odd spot.
Excerpt: I'm taking the time to write this one because i don't want you to be surprised. This camera is amazing and does for me very well all that she promises except for one major thing. This thing is the ticking noise of the auto focus in video mode.
one of the best pocket cameras in a pinch but don't expect it to ouperform even the oldest DSLR in image quality

Summary: A great point and shoot but with limitations in low light long exposure. This camera is almost worthless for shutter speeds slower than 1/4 second at any ISO if you like night photography even under a full moon, Handling it is a great focal range, lens is resonably sharp but not very contrasty,...
Summary: I had this exact camera stolen while I was visiting Quito, Ecuador. I was heartbroken, because this camera had become a part of me. I travel a lot and live in a beautiful place and it was pretty much my constant companion. Before buying it, I had researched extensively.
Compact and capable point-and-shoot with a few tradeoffs..

Summary: I bought this as a lighter option for hiking/backpacking over my DSLR. RAW image capture was an essential feature and I compared this camera to other RAW-shooting point-and-shoots and it is the best value, though it acks the latest software features.
Pros: Light and compact, it's a decent take-along when you don't want the heft of a DSLR. Images are solid, RAW shooting is good; I don't feel like I'm losing everything from my DSLR. I like the super-fast burst mode if I ever have a good reason to use it, and the exposure bracketing makes up for a nea...
Cons: HDR is worthless without a tripod. When so many other brands have HDR auto-alignment built into the camera. GPS auto-logging eats the battery; I'd rather use my phone for GPS logging and then use a program like Geosetter to sync. This is written in other reviews, but the firmware's requirement fo...
