I have been wanting a digital camera for a while. Before deciding on a camera I did a lot of research. A lot of reviews gave this camera high marks so I checked it out. I can honestly say this camera is a great camera. I love my Canon Powershot!
It takes great pictures. The colors are vibrant. It has a 12x zoom on it, which really brings in images close. One of my favorite features on this camera is the image stabilizer. It really helps with those camera shake.
It is bigger then most point and shoot camera out there, but don't let that stop you from buying it.
I have recently seen this camera has come down in price. It is 100% worth the price.
I also love the video mode. It takes great videos, the picture is clear and the sound is crisp. In fact I don't even use my regular video recorder anymore. I just use my Canon Powershot when I want to film something.
I like the fact that it takes 4 regular AA batteries. We were on vacation and I forgot to recharge my batteries and the camera went dead. Well all I did was hop into the nearest convenience store and brought a package of 4 regular AA batteries and I was good to go.
My only downside of the camera is the flash doesn't pop up automatically. My old camera it did so in the beginning I kept forgetting to raise the flash. Once I got in the habit it was OK, but it was a bit frustrating at first.
This camera is a great camera. I even recommended it to my mother and now she has the same camera and loves it.
