Summary: The photos are amazing and the camera's 30x optical allows for excellent range. Also, there is a "discreet" setting so you can snap away and people do not hear the shutter. Great feature. The kit that came with the camera had everything I need. Love the card reader, too.
Summary: This really arrived quickly..It has a lot of accessories and was convenient to have a ready made kit. The camera itself is great! I have another Canon PowerShot that is much heavier and larger. I have had 2 neck surgeries and needed a more light weight model. So this with its' nice zoom range works out well.
Summary: I first want to write I originally purchased the Canon PowerShot SX510 for the same price as this camera thinking I was getting more camera for my money. I was wrong, I returned that camera, purchased this one and glad I did. My whole reason for upgrading my camera (I had a Canon SX210 which is an excellent camera) was to get a better zoom. The 30X zoom is fantastic but needs the 16 megapixels to make crisp, clear pictures when you crop them.
Summary: I love this camera and the bundle it came with is perfect. The camera was easy to set up and use. The pictures came out clear. I am glad it came with a great bundle, such as the extra battery and the case. I am not camera-savvy, and this is easy to use. I would recommend this for a good basic easy to use camera.
