Summary: After a trip in 2013 decided I needed a new automatic digital camera that was good in low light environments. C-Net had a positive review. Amazon also had many positive reviews. Recently used on a trip. Completely satisfied. Works well in low light situations. Prior to my trip, I called customer support since I wanted shots to be at hd quality. Suggested using the p setting. Good advice. BTW the battery was not an issue.
GREAT CAMERA, small enough to fit in your pocket or purse. . . .

Summary: Has met my expectations, as I only use as a point and shoot, so far, and not sure if I'll ever use it for anything else (my daughter will when she comes), but I like the camera, it fits in my purse and yet I have the 20X zoom that I want, and have been taking a lot of practice pictures, the bundle was the best deal and I am happy with my purchase.
Came highly recommended and Ialso highly recommend it.

Summary: This is a small camera with a really reasonable price tag that performs amazingly. Love it. It will work well for many things but personally I am happy with the sharp images it takes for my real estate listings as well as the amazing zoom for taking nature shots.
Summary: I adore the camera and pictures. the batteries are not long lasting and they are very disappointing. If I go on vacation I can easily go through 3-4 batteries a day and need to constantly re-charge. very much a pain in foreign countries.
Summary: We purchased this camera on the recommendation of a relative who has one and enjoys using it. The pictures that we've taken so far have been wonderful. The zoom is terrific, we can take great pictures from several hundred feet with out the birds flying away.
Summary: I have used this camera indoors, outdoors, daytime and nighttime and I'm impressed with the quality of photos taken. Outdoor photos have really good color and sharpness. Indoor photos are good, however some needed to be touched up because of limiting light conditions. The camera menu has almost every thing I need. The only thing I didn't like was the pop up flash. It's position was where I held my old camera's. I have since learned a different grip.
Summary: I got my Canon about 3 months ago and love it. I know most of us use our phone cameras nowadays, but there are situations where I really want to get a "GOOD" picture. Especially when I'm going to add something to my blog or Pinterest. You want the quality to be better than phone quality. This camera does a lot of really cool things. You can take self picture with a wink of your eye or a smile. It works too! Perfect camera for every day use.
Summary: I chose this camera partly because Canons are wonderful. I have several of them dating back decades and have never been disappointed. In particular, I wanted a camera with a powerful zoom, which this one has. I took it to Peru recently and took hundreds of photos and didn't get a poor one that could be attributed to the camera's fault. I highly recommend this camera.
