Summary: I wanted a camera that was easier to carry around and use than our DSLR. I knew there would be a step down in quality, but what we experienced was much more than a few steps down in quality. I have had great luck with other canon cameras in the past, even simply point n shoot style cameras, but we used this camera to take pictures of our babies first christmas and almost all of them were out of focus.
Excerpt: Our field personnel like the size and ruggedness of this camera. The pictures taken are legible and clear with every detail shwoing which is critically to the massive inspections we perform every day on-site. Ease of use and passing along those pics in a timely manner. Would highly recommend for construction site use as well as a personal user for those hikes and walks.
Excerpt: I normally shoot with a Canon 7D, but on occasion it' a little large, especially on vacation. While this camera won't do fast action like hockey, it makes a good vacation camera with good quality and features. My daughter likes the size when she's running around with friends.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
