Summary: I bought this in 2013. If you are considering buying this today you should make sure that it comes with Windows 8 and up files. Also, know that the flash is located on the top left of the camera where most people hold the camera.
Excerpt: I agree with others that the flash is in an inconvenient spot and that the on/off button is small. My main complaint is that a lot of my pictures come out blurry. I can only think that this happens bc their is no viewfinder so there is nothing to keep the camera perfectly still.
Summary: Solid camera. Good photos. The lens is VERY slow unless you are all the way wide. Also, it seems like you can't close the lens down more than like F6 when you are outside so they added some sort of ND filter? Baffling. HD video is a nice feature and I like that you can zoom while shooting.
I like Canon and hoped this camera would take better pictures ...

Summary: I like Canon and hoped this camera would take better pictures in low light indoors without a flash. It did not perform as well as expected, so I returned it and bought the Sony RX100II which worked beautifully.
Summary: I'm used to Micro Four Thirds and full frame sensors and I didn't expect greatness from this sensor, but I'm surprised by how poorly the sensor performs in terms of noise and image detail even with good light and at low ISOs.
Summary: The Technical Details (under "See More Technical Details", the expanded list) state that this camera has an electronic viewfinder. IT DOES NOT! I ordered this camera on December 4, 2013 and received it on December 10.
Summary: I purchased this camera as a replacement for an older Canon. The reviews for the camera were fairly positive, with the stickler being the possibility of getting the lemon lens. One of the deciding factors for me when compared to others in this price range was that the batter/charger were the same as...
Excerpt: I purchased this as a gift for my 13 yr old, and it is out of the box usable. This is a good looking, solidly built camera. For the price it seems very adequate and takes very good images. The best feature is the fast lens for good low light photography - less flash reliant.
