The Canon Powershot is a great low priced camera for lots of porpuses. It has 7.1 megapixels which is respectable and in my opinion is all you need unless your a pro. It has gorgous 1.5 inch screen which makes it easy to share pictures with your family and friends. It is easy to use, having the auto feture means the camers adjusts itself to its suroundings so its really just a point and shoot camera.
Considering the price the camera takes good photos which you can edit using the color mode which makethe photo Vivid, Neutral, Sepia, Black & White or a Custom Color. The camera takes good photos in bright sunny spot as well as in low light however sometimes the pictures look slightly dull. The Camera also takes videos but the quality is nothing special, but it will do for the odd movie or two.
My only complaint about this camera is its size, it doesn't fit in your pocket, this is partly because it takes AA bateries so you cant recharge them. If you are looking for a compact camera then dont buy this.
Overall this is a great camera that i highly recomend to anyone looking inside the price range however it is quite bulky.
