Great little camera!

Summary: Love the picture quality, portability and handling! Take it everywhere without the bulk of my SLR's and as a backup or for quick shots I might have otherwise missed. The whole family can operate it easily and the wider angle allows great shots of my wife's quilting projects. Video works fine for vacation memories, too!
Summary: This is my favorite point and shoot camera. This is the second one that I have owned. When out with a group of people, and several people are taking photos this camera takes the best photos. I would recommend this camera. I owned the older version of this camera for 5 years, and have owned this one for almost 2 years. It also takes great video.
Summary: Nice camera for the price. I'm still learning the ins and outs of various settings, but for the most part, I am pleased with the camera, images, myriad of settings, and smaller size. The shutter does seem to take a tad long to close hence, multiple pictures of the exact same image are difficult - action pix impossible to shoot more than once - but all in all, a good little camera as far as I am concerned.
Summary: I tried and tried to like this camera, but I can't. The quality of the pictures, even outside in day light are really bad and without vivid color. The auto mode it is a real joke, my smart phone takes better pictures and if you want to take pictures at interior, just forget about - takes awhile to focus, and when finally got the focus the picture still comes out blurry.
Summary: Am a Canon SLR kind of guy, love telescopic lenses. Always wanting closer pictures. Purchased a Swaroski spotting scope (20-60x 60mm), then I found the digital camera adapter for this scope. If you know anything about digi-scoping wildlife, you use the viewer on the back of the camera to aim your spotting scope at your subject.
Excerpt: We lost the ixus70 i new york and got this as a replacement. It sucs. Its bulky compared to the smaller 70/80/90 Image quality is very poor compared to the old ixus - also when you downsample to compare. Contrast is bad. Macro sucs even more. In good light pictures are ok, but not more. Dont get this camera!
Summary: I've had this camera for a year now. It's the best camera I've ever had. It's small and fits right into my pocket so I take more pictures now than I used to. I hated lugging around my big Nikon. It was hard to hike and carry the big camera. Now I can just put my little camera in my pocket and take it anywhere. This camera has so many useful features. It's simple to use and the image quality is WONDERFUL. The macro setting works wonderfully.
