    I have already recommended this camera to multiple people. I use my camera a lot for concert pictures and I just purchased this a few weeks ago. It had its first concert test on 8/31/14 for the Monumentour Paramore/Fallout Boy show in Scranton, PA. I will add a few of the images to this review!

    It's a great size, it's got the specs I needed for what I use it for and it was set at an amazing price! Very happy with this purchase for my personal photo purposes!

    I bought this camera for a trip because I wanted a higher mega pixel camera for better quality pics. I own a Cannon PowerShot ELPH 510HS 12 MP and a PowerShot SD1200 IS 10 MP. This camera is a 20 MP camera and takes worse pics than both my other two cameras. It takes pics that are more grainy and less sharp than my other two cameras. It digitizes when you zoom into a picture that was already taken and while you are looking at it on the computer. However it is lightweight which is good but it feels cheap. I like the camera but it takes poor quality pictures. I have taken several photography classes and take photos as part of my job, so I know how to use a camera. I had all three cameras on the highest resolution possible.

    Comments about PowerShot ELPH 150 IS Digital Camera (Blue):

    Incredibly easy to use functions. On screen hints are very easy to understand. Just a little too thin for older hands that are used to older camera styles. It would be nice if it used an easily relaceable battery such as a AA or AAA.

          I use this camera for environmental field work to document site conditions. Great little pocket sized camera. Performs well and has great resolution for adding detailed photos to reports.
          My only complaint is that it doesn't use AA batteries... it uses a Canon specific battery and charger.

              The menu is not very user friendly. I had to play with it to get to know about the menu items for various modes. Also, I get some annoying click sounds whenever it changes the picture mode automatically in auto mode. The picture quality seems to be fine.

                  I use this as a grab-and-go camera when I don't want to take my Leica. Focus is fast and it is excellent in low light. It fits in a shirt pocket and is easy to use. I use it in Program mode since there is no manual mode. I am a little disappointed that there is no Program Shift capability. You have to change the ISO to force a faster or slower shutter speed.

                    Comments about PowerShot ELPH 150 IS Digital Camera (Black):

                    Bought this PowerShot ELPH 150 IS to replace an 8 year old Canon D10 that I use to keep handy for quick photos.

                    I Played with it for 6 hours and boxed it up and it went back to B&H

                    I did a comparison to the old canon D10 by shooting the same shot with both cameras one right after another with same subjects/products at the same distance, lighting, settings.

                    No matter what I did I could not get the new ELPH to give me a picture as good as the old D10 did – The ELPH could not get the crisp/clear images it wasn't even close.

                    The elph is 20mp the D10 is 12mp but the elph pictures were smaller and grainy compared to the old camera.

                    I'm confused why the ELPH's pictures wouldn't be bigger and better than the D10

                    D10 vs ELPH

                    Both use the same 1/2.3 CCD sensor

                    D10 has DIGIC 4 Image Processor
                    ELPH has DIGIC 4+ Image Processor

                    I'm still looking for a new camera

                      I have used many digital cameras. This Canon is by far the best. Great image quality. Fast start up, fast focus. No manual mode but haven't found that to be a negative. AUTO mode is smart. Truly pocket size, great battery life. Love the AUTO maco.
