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. The zoom lens is incredible as well. This camera takes quality pictures and has a stabilizer to minimize blur in photos. Though, it has some negative attributes as well. Though portable, this is a very delicate camera .

Summary: I'm currently using my camera for my new blog. It takes amazing pictures up close. The only down side is I wish their was a way to make the camera settings easier to access. For example as events are going on lighting, scenary & backdrops change. I would love to be able to change for such settings in a faster way as I am shooting.
Pros: Easy To Use, Large Clear LCD, Quiet, Tilt /Swivel LCD
Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, Poor Image Stabilization
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.
Summary: I think Canon has a good technology in case of Camera section. I would like to have moving 3D panaromic feature in this camera and also sometime I see the flash does not work when you click it in low light, may be due to some adjustment required to do..but I am not aware of.
Summary: Bought this for an early Christmas present for my daughter (age 17). We were heading to Ireland and needed a good reliable camera. We had no problems with the camera, she took over 900 pictures on this card. Granted, she wasn't sure how to use all the settings, but did use the black and white feature. The battery lasted the whole day. We haven't printed the pictures yet, but they look great on the computer. I think it was a great deal.
