Summary: I mainly got this camera for its ability to focus close-up. It does that with its "tracking focus" feature but I am not convinced this camera is getting any better pictures or close-ups than my iPhone 5. I'm pretty sure, however, that I'm going to sell my XSI and Tamron zoom lens because they are definitely redundant to this camera and the iPhone. I very much like the weight and size and ease of operation.
Summary: I upgraded from the previous version Cybershot and am slightly disappointed. First, the lenscap does not stay on very well. Thus, you must keep this in it's camera bag and NEVER quickly toss it in your purse or diaper bag else the lenscap fall off and the lens scrape keys, toys, gum, etc. Second, sometimes the focus doesn't seem to work and I have to power it on and off to "reset".
Summary: I like it very much as it is an upgrade from the 12MP 20x Canon PowerShot SX 120 IS that was slowly falling apart after several years of use. I do miss the Canon's vari-angle screen but, as a digital artist, the fact the 20MP allows me to print much larger images is a real plus and makes up for that. I also like the ease of transferring images onto my computer without having to remove the memory card, something I had no choice but to do with my Canon.
Summary: I haven't had any problems with the camera. At first my pictures were a bit blurry but once I figured out the settings that went away. Does the job and has pretty good resolution. Overall pleased with it.
Anyone not happy must not know how to use it + instructions are embedded w/i

Summary: Unfortunately in this day in age, features are obsolete before it's delivered to your front door: however that is the best part. Being obsolete, you get GREAT features that six months ago would have cost us way more than the budget would allow. Now very inexpensive. This camera would have netted five stars but some materials are substandard. I give it 4.8 stars.
Summary: I wish that people had written a full review before I bought this camera, so I could have been a bit more prepared. Let me just say first that I love this camera, but there are some good and bad sides to everything, I suppose, so I am going to list them since the only other five reviews have not touched on anything but how great the camera is for them. Pros: Comes with everything you need, there is no guess work!!!! Has a wonderful zoom on it.
Summary: Is it a little slow in low light yes and are there limits to steady shot with the zoom lens at max but in normal light without the subject not playing sports or running then this is fun camera with a lot to recommend it. It has a great panoramic mode and point and shoot mode will cover a lot of situations.
Summary: I bought this camera for just what it is: A starter camera. I'm just getting into taking photos strictly as a hobby, and wanted something better than what my smartphone has. I'll start with what I like about this camera-First off, I like the simple and straightforward user interface. Not being an absolute camera expert myself, I find the functions and menus easily navigable. It's a plus that tis camera runs on readily available AA batteries.
