"Great primary camera for casual snappers, heavy users look elsewhere for a second camera"4.0 starson by CrazyCoul2003
Pros: Small size still fits larger hands, good in-camera editing, simple ISO setting controls, great for a night out if you don't want to carry too much.
Cons: No manual controls, ISO 800 - 1600 photo quality is so-so, extreme close up photos tough to make clear
Summary: I've had this camera for a little while, and on its own merits it is a terrific snapshot camera, a wonderful value for a casual user. Some of the in-camera options are very intuitive, like the in-camera red eye removal tool and other post-shot editing options.
I was looking for a second camera I could use when I simply couldn't have my SLR (which seems to be more and more often these days) and while the photo quality has been excellent, I really don't know why Canon didn't add simple manual controls to this camera. There is a "manual" mode, but this doesn't allow shutter speed / aperture control, just white balance.
Don't misinterpret; the images are very high quality, the camera is very intuitive and I am going to keep using it as a night-on-the-town shooter. I would seriously consider this camera if you are one to just keep it on auto (the camera almost always creates a great shot). Photo junkies, just don't expect to get nearly as creative as you may be used to.
