Summary: The pictures are great, however, I did not realize that the process for downloading the digital photos is wireless, and the instructions are so complicated, that this simple user does not get it. That is my only disappointment.
Summary: Camera is great, though using the internet ready upload has been difficult for my dad, who on all accounts is a pretty tech-savvy guy. This gets three stars because the kit came missing the tripod, which we were actually looking forward to having. Alas, parts not sold separately...
Summary: Bought this camera because I needed a megazoom for a specific event. First off, the camera works well and takes better pictures than it probably should. I'm a novice photographer and needed a decent point and shoot to take great pictures. It delivers and my photos are great quality, indoor and outdoor. For those who like more control, the camera also has manual controls. One tiny drawback is that the controls aren't as "intuitive" as my other digital cameras.
Summary: I have been using Canon for the last 15 years. I am now quite familiar with the Canon ELPH series. I was looking for a rather smaller camera to carry around with good telephoto lens. Carrying around my DSLR does take a toll when you are walking about. Especially if you carry a few lenses with you and other equipment. For its ability to take pictures, I believe this camera do deserve at least a 4 star (probably even 5). Low light situation pictures are better.
Summary: Really like the quality of photos and the ability to zoom in. However the battery loses his charge very rapidly and it's a real pain in the rear end when traveling because your consulate charging your battery. I like every other aspect of the phone except for the battery issue.
Conclusion: This is a good piece of equipment that fut fill the minimum expectations. Quality wise, it is what is expected in a CANON product. It does not have any new features. It is all the same as standard cameras. Canon tried to put the body of their EOS types in this small one, but it fells very weird in my hands. Wi-Fi, is not working properly, or better.. at all.
Pros: good battery life, excellent image quality, Lightweight/Portable
Cons: Missing features/settings, Poor Low-Light Performance, flash is not automatic, price/features ratio is too high
