This camera takes excellent photos & videos, and the battery is long-lasting. I just took it on a rim-to-rim hike of the Grand Canyon with 3 days of continuous shooting and I never had to change the battery (I had a spare with me I didn't use). I accidentally dropped this little guy on the ground (rocks) and ended up with only a few superficial scratches (the camera, that is). What a little tank this camera is! I'm very happy with my purchase.

I have the camera for a few days and my experience is sos so okay. It is not spectacular nor great but bad either.

The camera has a good interface on screen and the flash does its job once you have figured out working around some standard settings.

The view finder is useless as it is the size of a pin head. Canon could have got rid of that feature. Thankfully the display works well, also outside in the sun.

Picture quality is as you would expect of Canon.

I wonder when Canon improves on the battery indication level as now it only shows up when it is almost time to recharge/replace the battery. When you are out on a trip that can be a bit of a problem. The alternative is to charge it every time you are coming home afte rusing the camera but that again is not good for the lifespan of the battery.

I am keeping the camera as a second one next to my bigger and much better Panasonic8 that I do not want to drag around every night and day whilst this one fits in your pocket.

This is the best camera I have ever owned. It recently accompanied me on a trip to Israel and while the landscapes were amazing in their own right, this camera enabled me to capture every last detail on the fly. Bright blues, incredible textures. Unbelievable. I suggest actually perusing the instructions before using it (I'm generally not a big instruction reader) because it will help you understand the menu navigation--which isn't as simple as say a Kodak or Nikon Coolpix. But once you do understand the nav, you'll appreciate all the controls available to you. Not that you really need them. If you're a point-and-shoot person, but want to take "snapshots" that could be award-winning, get this camera. Also, be sure to get a memory card...at least a gig or two. You may not think you need that much memory now, however, you'll find that the pictures you take are so amazing, you want to take more and more. The "memory card" it comes with holds about six photos.

This camera is absolutely amazing!!! Highly recommended. We took over 300 pictures in Yosemite with this camera...the battery lasted several days. There was a lot of smoke in the air and the camera was still able to capture the true beauty of Yosemite. I'm extremely happy I went with the Canon over an Olympus.
