Excerpt: I have owned this camera for quite sometime, and I am fairly satisfied. It is a perfect camera for new photographers just starting out. This camera has many positive attributes. It can be used with a tripod, and it has many built in settings.
Summary: Wanted to upgrade from my compact camera but without the complications and price of a DSLR. This camera does excellent photos. It is very easy to use in it's basic functions but can offer very advanced stuff...half of which I still have to discover! Bracketing (to do HDR) is a very useful feature and the photo rate is pretty good...it does the 3 photos in about 1 second. The zoom is incredible!
Great point+shoot ease w/powerful zoom that ups enjoyment of taking photos!

Summary: Bought camera just 10 days before a trip to Ireland. I'm totally thrilled with the beautiful shots I got--landscape, close ups, zoom shots, low light. I was not familiar enough to use any setting besides 'auto' and was still pleased with the results. I did print out the highly informative instructional guide but it was much too big to pack along in my suitcase.
Summary: For the price I was blown away by what it can do...it made my old Poweshot A630 pics look horrible in comparison. You will not be disappointed...don;t forget to get the class 10 flash card, not the class 4. Your camera will preform at it's best, and the pics come out awesome!
Summary: This camera is absolutely AMAZING!! I went to an iris festival this weekend, and I was finally able to capture the real beauty of the flowers. I am an amature, and this camera made it very easy for me! I haven't even had a chance to try out all of the different features and I am already happy with my purchase. Highly recommended!
Super price to value point and shoot, but with a few flaws in construction.

Summary: This is a great product for the price range but there are some challenges with it. It is a bit slow especially when you have the camera's computer doing many of the calculations an experienced photographer would have set manually. Also if you are use to holding your camera by the lens, the outer lens housing is not fixed very well on this unit and slides off easily, requiring it to be re-glued on.
Great deal, great price, great shipping, great seller!

Summary: The camera is amazing and was a great deal. I was looking to replace a really good camera I currently have, but that is older and not as high quality. This is the first Canon I have purchased, really like it. My only complaint is that the manual is not helpful at all. I'm not into having to go on a website to understand my camera, so I've had to figure it out. Because the camera has a lot of features, this hasn't been the easiest endeavor.
