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: great easy to use point and click camera just what I need for the pictures I take.recommended camrera for the non - professional looking for an easy to use , fun and compact carmera to have on hand.
Summary: This little camera takes great pictures and video. We use it when we want better quality than the cell phones we carry around. It does seems a little slow to focus and 'click' for quick 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.
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.
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.
Summary: I love the Canon ELPHs - my first one was a PowerShot SD400. I hated giving up the very small pocket size. The PowerShot Sd4500IS is a much better camera with image stabilization and the 10x optical zoom. My zoom pictures are not blurry anymore - and I can zoom way in compared to my old camera. These features are great for me since I like to take a lot of bird photos. The viewing screen on the back is much bigger, too.
