Summary: I purchased this camera refurbished and have not been disappointed in its ability to take great pictures. I would, however, recommend that you buy new as the refurbished camera did not come with a battery or ANY other item that typically comes with a new camera AND a new camera is only a few dollars more.
Summary: the camera seemed fine and took nice pictures but there was a faulty usb port right out of the box, had trouble get it to connect to the computer, I had to keep pushing the plug into the camera and moving it around to get it to connect. Returned the product and bought something else.
Very happy with my reconditioned camera for the price ($50).

Summary: Camera arrived as advertised, which is to say like new with all the accessories and manual and disk. Plus a pretty nice leather case that I wasn't expecting. I wanted a small camera for travel and not a lot of money; happy with my purchase.
Summary: The zoom function does not work. I am a true Canon lover and tried to buy a camera on the cheap for a trip to Disney, one that was compact but took high quality pictures. I use a DSLR so I certainly know how to work a camera and this zoom function does nothing. Took a few pictures of different things, changed the functions and tried again, and it didnt focus on a single item.
Summary: I choose this camera for several reasons. I really liked my wife's VR, compact size, 12x zoom and Eye-fi capable. Also like the variety of scene selection modes. I am still learning to use these features. I would recommend this camera for those looking for compact camera with a high zoom.
