    Sweet little point and shoot camera

    We love the handiness of the point and shoot cameras and find that this line of Canon is one of the best. We bought one for my wife and found her ability to carry it in her purse, whip it out when needed and produce good quality digital shots far surpassed the negatives when compared to my digital SLR. She was so happy with it that we bought one for my 9 year old granddaughter when she expressed an interest in her granny's camera. She loves it and so do we! Bonus: Best Buy's price was the best online or otherwise and we have a Best Buy store nearby that is incredibly handy to use! We highly recommend this sweet little point and shoot AND Best Buy, too!!!

    This camera was purchased for a high school student traveling abroad. While my DSLR would have taken terrific photos, it would have been quite bulky for the student to carry. I went with the Canon brand, and have no regrets! The images that were captured were brilliant, vivid, and incredibly clear from this point and shoot. It has a rechargeable battery pack, and made it through several days' usage on a single charge. It survived being carried in a backpack along with other day-trip necessities, and performed every time. Great investment for capturing important memories!

    I am a Senior Citizen with a limited knowledge for digital things, when I read the review on this camera I thought it would be very easy for me to use. When I went to Best Buy to purchase this campers the salesman explained it was very easy to operate, I would have no problem useing it. Well I then decided to purchase it. He showed me which memory card would be best to use. This sales person was not a pushiest person which I liked. I would tell anyone if you want a camera that is easy to operate, slim in appearance then purchase this camera.

    G.L.C. (Great Little Camera!)

    Fantastic camera we bought to replace a similar Canon that we had for several years. The camera's compact size and clarity of photos are our favorite features. The camera is easy to use, well made, the zoom feature is excellent, and it is a great alternative to taking photos with a cell phone! The only drawback we find is that since it's rather small, it would seem easy to drop it, so we'd recommend always having the included wrist strap around your wrist. This is a great little camera for the size. It was easy to find an appropriate padded case for it also!

    I was looking for a point and shoot camera. My old Canon broke but it was over 10 yrs old and held up well. Since this camera was very similar to my old one, I didn't have much trouble learning how to operate. It takes great photos. It is also fairly small and lightweight to carry. It has a wrist strap too. It does not come with a card. That is an extra purchase. That was a disappointment. More money to make it work. It does come with one battery. Overall, nice camera.

    I had the Cannon Sureshot camera that I bought in 2010 and loved it. But now that the zoom is coming better and better in the newer updated versions of the same camera I decided to get a new one. There is nothing wrong with my old one but the new one has a much better zoom. I intend to give the old one to my younger niece for her enjoyment. This is such an easy camera to use I can't imagine any other brand. The pictures come out fabulous!!

    Surproise for my daughter

    I took my daughter on a trip to San Francisco and knew that she did not have a small format camera for the trip as she had dropped and rendered her previous camera beyond repair. O managed to sneak this into her personal luggage before our flight. The camera worked flawlessly while we were on our trip. I intend to borrow it for my next trip to the largest train show in America in York, PA next spring. It is light, small, easy to carry, and takes very good pictures.

    Bought this camera for my wife for Christmas and she couldn't be happier. She wanted a camera to take pictures whenever she wanted without having to use her phone, especially of our 1 y/o daughter. This camera fit the bill, and it takes great pictures and is easy to use. For the price of the camera I'm impressed with the picture quality (although I haven't had a chance to review the photos on an hd screen yet, only the small screen on the camera itself).

    I bought this to use on my summer vacation, wanting to upgrade from my seven year old Kodak camera. I think the photos are really clear and sharp. The zoom feature is sometimes hard to get right where you want it and I personally don't like taking the battery out to charge it. And it really should include a USB cable to transfer the photos (I had to buy it separately). Overall, it's a great little camera that takes great photos. Very glad I made the purchase and hope to use it on many more trips!

    There are much more complex cameras with a lot more settings to play with, but this one has enough for what most of us use our cameras for without being so complicated that it's intimidating for a beginner. It's very compact & the included battery charger charges fairly quickly. You can buy a second battery to have on hand as a backup & it's small and flat so it's easy to carry an extra.

    The Power Shot ELPH 180 is a very good buy for the money in consideration of the 20 megapixels and its ability to adjust ISO and aperture. With memory cards it provides the ability to take and store hundreds of photos. My first Power Shot was only 6 megapixels, but it was a great little camera. This camera is much improved and more advanced. I bought it on sale and got a great deal.

    This was a great replacement for my current point and shoot. It is VERY easy to use and adjust to certain environments like outdoors and smaller objects. It also is a great size which makes it easy to carry in a pocket when you don't have a case. Adding the photos to my photo library online is a snap as well. Plus the picture quality has been fantastic. Very clear and detailed. Very happy I purchased it.

    We were headed to DC, but I did not want to carry around with me my SLR camera. So I bought this one. It is the Best Camera. Takes great photos. Small enough to carry in a pocket. It takes stills and video. Although for what I was using it for I only used the stills. I did take one video. If you are looking for a small portable camera, I would high recommend this Canon camera.

    Small lightweight design makes for always wanting to take it with you for better shots than your phone! Easy transfer to your computer and editing software included by Canon. Learning some manual functions but they are there although auto mode works well! Anti shake mode works well in full light but a bit lagging in low light. You can cure that by pressing test shot to allow meter to catch up! A great value for a lot of camera . 20 mgrgapixels!!

    We bought this camera for our son to use when we went on vacation and it performed flawlessly. It was easy to use and took pretty good pictures considering the size and cost of the camera. As we were traveling to a different time zone the alternate time setting on the camera was a nice feature to help keep track of when the pictures were taken without having to account for a time offset.

    I purchased this camera as a gift for my daughter-in-law to take pictures of my new grandson. The only camera she had was her phone. This camera is small enough to fit inside a diaper bag or small purse. The only thing is it does have to be periodically charged and one may forget to check it before that "must have" picture. Still, it's a good camera & she loves it!

    I bought this camera because it was the closest model to the Canon that I've used for years. Its features are very similar so I've had very little learning curve with this new one. I like that the flash setting stays where you set it rather than reverting back to the default. Of course, the quality of my photos is better and I expect to get as many years out of this camera as I did my old Canon.

    Bought this camera to replace an old snapshot camera. Really like this one! Great photos. Takes pictures quickly so you don't lose that special shot. Good quality too. Telephoto works great and is intuitive. Pull the lever toward you to get closer to your subject, push to decrease. Takes video too although I haven't used it for that yet. Lightweight, slim and compact. Great all around snapshot camera!

    It's a Cannon first place. They know a little about cameras. I jumped on it $113.00 I beleive when I saw this little Power Shot. It performs like a Cannon Great Shots and good video I do wish it had a stablelizer . I wished I could spell. Anyway for just over a hundred bucks I got a good deal on a good camera
