Excerpt: I have owned this camera for several years now, since 2011. I used it at concerts to shoot pictures of the singer and it performed very well. I also use it as my everday camera in my pocket. I should have used a protective cover, as the lens cover does not work properly anymore, I have to open and close it fully by hand. But other than that, it is a great camera with great looks. I own the silver version.
Summary: This is a easy and fun little camera. It takes great pictures and has very good instructions on its operation. I can put it in a small case and put it on my belt so it is always with me. It is so easy to use that even my wife can take great pictures.
Summary: Awesome little camera! Nice long zoom and GREAT low light pictures. All the little extras are cool and fun to mess with. Ours has been on half a dozen vacations and never missed a step. The battery life is a little short but never put us out. Just buy an extra battery and your set.
Summary: I bought this specifically to film my daughter pitching and hitting in super slow motion. The result is helping us to pin point what she is doing wrong since a standard 30fps is too blurry. It does this wonderfully!! It does need bright out doors light as indoor the 240fps catches the flickering from AC current in flourescent lights. Big mercury vapors are DC so it works fine. My only negative would be that the picture size in slow mo is very small.
GREAT LITTLE CAMERA TO HAVE ON HAND FOR PHOTOS WHENEVER YOU WANT THEM.

Summary: IT'S A VERY CONVENIENT POCKET SIZE CAMERA...IT TAKES A WHILE TO FIGURE OUT ALL OF THE BELLS AND WHISTLES AND NUMEROUS FEATURES ...CANON HAS A VERY EXCEPTIONAL TECH SUPPORT LINE WHICH IS EASILY AVAILABLE TO PHONE WITH QUESTIONS...THE BATTERY LIFE IS VERY POOR AND IT IS A NUISANCE TO KEEP CHARGING AND REPLACING BATTERIES.
Excerpt: This camera is amazing. I originally had a canon powershot that I had purchased about 3 years ago. It was the msot durable of any camera and it wasn't anything like these new waterproof, durable, can be pounded cameras. It was just a basic camera that was manufactured right. I could take it in the snow, swimming, use it everywhere and I knew it wasn't going to break.
Great if you are buying for the optical zoom and full HD video

Excerpt: If this is your first camera and you didn't know any better you'd be very very happy with this camera. But most of the negative reviews are from previous Canon owners that have been spoiled by great quality pictures, and honestly I'm not sure if this newer and more expensive camera gives you as good a picture as my 4 year old Canon SD750 that has been dropped on rocks and had sand in the lens and the lens-cover has been broken off and it STILL takes great pictures.
Excerpt: Overall this camera is pretty good. For the price you are paying this is the kind of camera you excpect to get. Good for people who aren't necessarily into photography but enjoy taking pictures for memories. I would recomment this for people who want a camera for enjoyment not photography. Good quality pictures and excellent battery life.
Summary: I had another camera exactly the same brand and model, but it was stolen. I bought this one to replace that because it is simply fantastic. I use it on trips, parties and when scuba diving (with a waterproof case).
