Pros This camera's design is nice. Small and easy to carry. Easy to pull from the pocket in those "I need a pic of this!" moments. I like the "discreet" mode for those concerts when you want to get a pic of your favorite singer without disturbing others.
Cons This camera can't focus.The image stabilizer is TERRIBLE. I have a RebelT2i and comparing the IS is no contest.All my pics (whites) are always blown out & overexposed and just terrible quality pics. Not worth taking to your child's Christmas concert.
Summary I had an older Canon Powershot and it pained me to part with it. The pics were great for a point and shoot. I thought this model would be an improvement... I was DEAD WRONG. This camera is terrible and I definitely wasted my money on this purchase. All the colors are undersaturated and whites get blown out completely. PLEASE don't waste your money on this camera. For a few dollars more, upgrade to a better camera. Don't cheap out on this camera. My 3 year old niece is just learning how to use a camera and I wouldn't even give this model to her. I wrote the company to tell them how disappointed I was. Don't get me wrong, I love Canon but this particular camera is fit for the garbage.
