    This product was purchased for my older mother. She has very small hands and wanted something light. The size is convenient and it's light weight so it doesn't weigh her purse down. Due to arthritis in her thumbs, it is difficult for her to focus her desired shot and click the button before the view finder closes. It would be nice if the delay was a bit longer. We're trying to figure out if this can be adjusted. It takes nice, clear pictures and the delay flash feature is nice; it allows enough time for her to also be in the picture. It didn't come with extensive instructions, but they are online. It was a nice gift and she is getting used to the features and moving a bit more quickly to 'beat the shutter closing'.

      I have of these and gave one to my mother who was looking for something easy to use, light weight and small.
      I can put this in my jacket or pants pocket. Its no bigger than a small cell phone and takes much better pictures than most cell phones. It has nice zoom features and a built in flash.

      Bought this for a present and she loved it. It is easy to use and the pictures looked great when we downloaded them to the computer. We are still getting used to it and are still haven't tried out all the features, but everything so far has been everything the description said is was.

        I was looking for a replacement for my wife's aging Nikon digital camera. This one is perfect for her purse and lets her take before photographs than her iPhone. She is a point and shoot person and this camera fits the bill at a very reasonable price point.

                I'm using the product in a school environment. So far it has exceeded expectations! It's quite user friendly, very compact and hooks up to my computer quickly to transfer pictures. I was very happy that one of the other teachers suggested this camera. I think I'm going to get one for my personal use as well. Oh and I forgot

                  It's been a couple of years since I've bought a "point and shoot" and I was pleasantly surprised at the improvements made by Canon. It is so simple to use. No need to fiddle with the menu settings when switching from portrait to landscape - the camera knows! The zoom function works great and the flash is good for a small camera. The battery was a little difficult to remove and I thought I would break something trying to remove it, but a quick read of the instructions told me I was on the right track. This is an easy camera to use and a great value for the the cost. Incidentally, and most importantly, it takes great pictures.

                  Comments about Canon PowerShot ELPH 135 (Black):

                  It's a great carry around camera. Manual, Auto and lots of telephoto. The buttons are a bit close and I keep hitting the self timer by accident, but you get used to it. I would never use the telephoto at full extension unless I had a tripod, but it is great to have such long range with a light weight. Great for hiking and casual events.
