      I looked at much more expensive cameras but settled on this one because it generally had good reviews and was just small enough to fit into a pocket. I did not want to spend a lot of money on something that could get damaged, dropped or stolen. The picture quality is above average without a lot of graininess or artifacts. Even when zoomed-in to a reasonable level on a large screen monitor, most photos look very detailed. And, the colors are quite pleasing and natural looking. It is best at taking still photos. That being said, when I set the camera in burst mode, I was able to get some decent shots at a recent bike race. But there are better cameras with faster lenses if you plan on taking a lot of action shots. The "P" mode offers some controls for things like exposure level and white balance. But this is a camera designed primarily for automatic use. There is no function dial, so you must go into the menus to make changes to the settings. The camera does a better than average job of taking good photos using the auto mode. And, even in the program mode, it still operates mostly automatically. The 25X zoom range is certainly more than adequate for most users. This is not one of those cameras that amazes you with it's shot to shot speed. But for most people it is more than adequate. You will not feel like you have a "brick" in your pocket or purse with this camera. It is quite lightweight and not too long or wide. The next most expensive Cannon model offers better performance, but it is (in my opinion) simply too large and heavy to tuck in a pocket. I bought a small canvas case that I hook to my belt. This keeps the camera protected and it is always ready for use. This camera is a good value for someone who is not a "camera person" but wants pleasing, lifelike photos. You could spend additional money and get more features, but not necessarily better quality photos.

      First let me say this. This camera is nice and good for this price range, which is why it has 4 stars and I would recommend it.... If you can get past the following points... **Please note though, the whole purpose of this purchase was for a higher megapixel camera that could give me crisp macro (close up) photos of my artwork. That being said, here's my opinion: 1. This camera is tiny! Think almost flip phone size, which makes it very awkward and hard to grip right with average adult hands. 2. Very impressive zoom photos. I used it to take exterior detail photos for an insurance claim. When I took 2nd floor photos of the details around windows, you would have thought they were first floor! So it did what I needed it to there. 3. No cords come with it. You take the battery out to charge it using a plug in adapter. 4. I ended up not being able to get it to connect to my laptop at all, so I just took the memory card out each time. This was a let down. 5. Cannon menus are a bit confusing to me. My son has a T5, which I tried to use a few times before and couldn't get the hang of things. Beginners be careful and really read the manual and try how to videos online. 6. There's a clicking noise it makes. It's the small metal pieces making up the lense protector. So when it's closed/off, for some reason mine made noises when I moved it around. Just an annoyance. 7. Okay here's the main reason I took it back. The closer shots were not as impressive as I expected per the many reviews saying it's good for that. I'm sure it's better than average though. However, in my case, I need really detailed photos of my artwork to be able to make prints of good quality. This did not deliver. Now, I might have been expecting way too much for a $200 range camera, but I was just going by other's opinions. So there ya go. This is just MY humble opinion also lol. I would call myself a hobbiest photographer. Not an expert, but more than a beginner. Thank you!

      I'm glad I bought it but it has a few issues. The battery did not last very long and stopped charging after one charge. It told me it wasn't a real Canon battery. That was problematic because I bought it just prior to going on vacation to have a better camera than my IPhone 7. I found two aftermarket batteries and a car charger on the road and they worked so well, I really only needed one. It is a much better camera, than the IPhone 7, but my biggest disappointment was my inability to get decent photos of the stars and moon in the desert sky. I tried every setting for hours and hours. Vibrant is a little too "vibrant" It will take a woman's face from "discreet" to saloon hooker. LOL. The Zoom feature was the best part. For my taste, it has a few too many artsy settings to throw fairy dust on your photo but I guess to each his own. I guess the sad part is that I will probably need to run all my vacation photos--- (600) through a photo app or software before I post them. But they are good photos to start with. But my wife just bout an IPhone 8 and it takes a better standard picture than this camera if you don't need zoom and 20mp density photos. The other nice thing is that adding another 600 photos to my IPhone might start giving me memory issues, at least with cloud back up. So I am glad I bought it, but will use it for the zoom feature in the outdoors mostly.

      I bought this to replace an older like model. What a disappointment. If this is suppose to be an improved model, it's a joke. To power the camera up, you have to try and push the little power button on top. I had to use my finger nail to push the recessed button down. They eliminated the auto flash like the older model had. So if you are taking pictures and the sensors decide you need a flash, you leave your shot, twist the camera sideways to find the little slide button then you raise the flash by using your fingernail to push the tiny little recessed button on the left side.to pop the flash up. Then you go back to your shot. The other buttons on the screen side are close together and recessed. You have to be right on to push them or you will push the wrong one. The dial around the Func set button is small and when you attempt to push on the outside ring, there's a good chance you will also hit the func set button that you didn't want to push. There are 4 buttons around that dial that are also recessed and close together. Not easy to use. The door on the right side which you open to get to the HDMI cable hook ups is held by two little plastic strips which I have a feeling would not last that long. Very dissatisfied with this camera and will return it to BB. I will not spend this amount of money on what appears to be a cheaply made product and without much thought in designing it.

      No USB cable, storage case or decent memory card

      I was told by the BB sales rep that all the cameras come with a USB cable to transfer photos. Well, this camera does not. I ordered one on Amazon for $5. How am I suppose to transfer photos if I am at someone's home or a location when wifi or removing the memory card is not an option? You will need the cable. The free memory card is to small to be practical. The SanDisk Extreme PRO 128GB SDXC is not stocked at the BB store. Available for half the price at Amazon. That is the best card for this camera. (the micro card is to slow). BB would not give credit toward a better memory card. The free card is a wasted product. Finally, no storage or travel case. So, after you buy this camera you need a transfer cable, better memory card and travel/purse case. I would not give this as a gift because it is not a complete package. More a fault of Canon than BB. What's next? Charging extra for a battery charger? I don't like the pop-up flash. That is obsolescence engineered into the camera. It is an expensive camera and yes, it does take fantastic pictures after a lot of practice. You must practice before that special event.

      The Canon - PowerShot SX620 HS 20.2-Megapixel Digital Camera is great if you are new to photography like me. It takes really sharp 1080p pictures/video, its also small enough to travel with and fits very easily into your purse, pocket or backpack. It's very easy to follow the instruction manual, clean and very easy to use. You can also connect very easily to your wireless devices like your mobile phone, tablet, computer and printer. You can also insert a micro SDX photo card to store all of your great videos/pictures with out it eating up all your data space like on your phone. Overall this makes a great gift for that special someone and it's budget friendly. However you choose to use this wonderful camera make sure you capture what inspires you and have lots of fun creating new memories. Enjoy!

      I love the color! It is very small compared to my old Power Shot. I was shocked at first. I have arthritis and I was afraid it would be difficult to hold, but it wasn't. I'm an amateur with cameras. I didn't read the manual before using it on a recent vacation, yet it was user friendly for taking basic photos. The battery is a chargeable battery. It doesn't come charged out of the box, so be prepared to have time to charge it. (I learned the hard way - I took it on vacation still in the box.) Also, it is a USB charger. I tried to use it via my cell phone wall adapter, but it didn't work. I had to charge it via my laptop. One difference is my old one had view finder to look through and a screen - this one only has a screen. I keep forgetting - annoying! Another difference is the pop-up flash. It helps me remember it's on. One disadvantage is the buttons are small - tiny really - hard for me to read. You have to purchase a memory card separately.

      Very good buy BUT not perfect

      This camera not only looks good and is very compact, but takes good pictures, at least good enough for a regular guy and not a pro-photographer. The best price and features for this type of camera, it has a 1/2.3" sensor, which is standard for cameras around this price, it records in HD which is a plus, I think the way the flash works on this camera is very convenient, if you want flash then you pop out the flash with a button on the side of the camera, you don't have to click on the menu, scroll down, select flash, etc etc. It is very easy to use, the only complaint I have is that the screen is a little blurry to me, the specs say that it is a High Resolution screen but it is not, it looks high resolution when the pictures are reviewed on the camera but not while focusing, so it is a bit misleading. Great buy for a point and shoot camera.
