    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'.

    it is a pretty little camera and I was surprised at the nice shots, but I found out it is not the greatest in low light that's why only 3 stars, I use DSLRs but wanted a pocket camera and this fits the bill perfectly

            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.

              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.
