Excerpt: This is my 3rd in the S series powershot cameras and is the perfect camera for travel, family and discreet photography. All my pro geR is Nikon, but the Canon S Powershot cameras are the best pocket cameras.
Summary: This camera is amazing. The sensor is larger than any other point and shoot camera on the market, so the photos have a quality that approaches an SLR camera. It is wonderful in low-light settings. Originally, the price was high because of this, but being it's now an "older" model, they have come down in price. I bought a second one as backup if anything happens to the first one. I've had it for over a year and it still looks and works perfectly.
