"Amazing pictures and video is very good"5.0 starson by wdmiller
Pros: Really good automatic mode
Manual mode is phenomenal
Picture quality is as good as my DLSR in many situations
Fast startup times
Easy to use
Cons: A little expensive
Auto mode indoors isn't as good as it could be, but manual mode works great.
Summary: Viewfinder and a big battery would be nice, but I think Canon made a good design choice by keeping the camera so small, you will be able to get great pictures anywhere.
