Lots of flexibility. Reasonable price.

  • 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. Good manual (electronic, not paper). Plenty of inexpensive cases available. Cons: Low-light capability not up to hype (but no camera is up to its introductory hype).

  • 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 literally gets in your way every time you use the camera (especially when you forget to turn off fill flash)?

Great compact digital

J. Michell, Amazon

  • 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. Can be used from fully auto mode to fully manual mode with very good image results. Can not beat this camera unless you go for a model priced over $ 1,000.

Nice upgrade

Wrekreation, Amazon

  • 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. Battery life is not terribly great but that is to be expected especially with the large display screen. A second battery is highly recommended.

Great Travel Camera

JR, Amazon
7 February 2013
  • 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. My left finger is always holding the camera on top where the flash is. When the flash pops up my finger is in the way and this gets the flash function all spun out.

  • 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. It's always present, especially in quiet shooting conditions (like an interview). follow this link to hear it yourself on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?

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, compared to a 12MP 5d the pictures are night and day better from the full frame and easily identifiable even by a complete non picture person.

This is a really fine camera.

  • 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. I called my local camera shop which is highly respected in this location close to Yellowstone National Park and all its photographic opportunities.

  • Summary: The best compact camera ever! very simple to use everything is auto and if you want to make it manual you also have several parameters to handle.

  • Excerpt: Small, light, with very high definition for a compact. I use RAW with Lightroom and enlarge my picture until 30x40 cm : no difference with my Nikon D 300.
