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
Worth it for the great picture quality. Just don't buy it for the wifi.

Summary: We have three Canon point and shoots in the house: an oldie from the last decade (which my youngest son now uses), a year-old inexpensive one for my oldest son, and now this one for us grownups. I can honestly say this one is my new favorite for picture quality. It takes great pictures even indoors without daylight to help, crucial in my north-facing living room. The other reviews here were a huge help understanding that, and are worth a read - I can't add value there.
Excerpt: I've been looking for a P&S for my wife that was pocketable, had good image quality, fairly long zoom range, and ease of use. I think this one will work. I tried superzooms from Sony, Nikon, and Canon and none of them was exactly what she wanted. Although I'm a long time Nikon user, and used to the "Nikon Way" of doing things, I've managed to translate Canonspeak fairly well. There are things that could be more straightforward, but she likes it, so that's that.
Pros: Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom, Nice Body Color, Pocketable, Small / Compact
Summary: I really like this camera. I can bring the pictures to my phone and IPad and from there they go to Dropbox so I have backups. However, I haven't had it long enough to figure out how to touch my phone and transfer the photos. I am traveling to where I won't have wireless and would like to have a backup plan. I was hoping I could go from the camera to Dropbox. I love all the accessories that came with it and the price was reasonable.
