Great camera with a ton of features
Product Rating:
I upgraded to this camera from my previous ELPH. The price might be a little steep for a consumer camera, but you know what they say...you get what you pay for. Canon managed to load this baby up with TONS of extras and it takes brilliant photos. I can't get enough of the LARGE LCD picture viewer, but you have to be careful with this camera because the LCD is prone to scratches. I am a fan of the ELPH line because the cameras are compact and easy to carry, however, this model is bulkier then the rest of the line. Overall the pros significantly outweigh the cons and Ięd recommend this camera to anyone.
Pros: TONS of features, Large LCD, takes beautiful pictures, Long battery life
Cons: Price a tad high for a consumer camera, Bulky for an ELPH, LCD can scratch easily
