    My Canon Power Shot is one of if not the best camera I've owned. It does every thing a big/regular camera does and is very compact. I'm really happy it was introduced to me as I am a very happy camper...

    I love this camera. I was concerned about going back to a larger size because I've had a smaller one for the past few years. It was worth the trade to get such excellent pictures and the zoom is amazing! Thanks

    The pictures were grainy. Could never get just a simple picture to be clear. Tried different lighting, backgrounds, adjusting camera etc and still not great pictures

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    It's a good camera for just about anyone. I like to take up close pictures and the zoom wasn't doing the job that I wanted. I returned this camera and bought one with a separate zoom lens.

    This camera has the best far zoom of any camera I’ve had. I have taken extraordinary pictures of the moon that has made this worth every penny.
