"Poor Body Design - Slips out of your hand easily"2.5 starson by ooHoover
Pros: The good side is the 10X zoom is great. You can buy extra batteries online for reasonable prices because you will need some extra ones if you shoot a lot. The image stabilizer works fairly well up to 4x zoom. Pictures are fairly sharp.
Cons: The worst problem is that it can slip out of you hand easily because it has rounded edges. Repeating shot after shot takes a bit a time to recycle . It seems like the quality of the material of the body is cheap plastic.
Summary: I have been a loyal Canon fan for a long time. I am going to try another company now ( probably a Sony) . With the edges being so rounded on this camera it looks great but it can be hard to grasp in your hands.
I have never dropped a camera before and this one when down when I was just position it with both hands, The plastic body is of cheap material. The repeating of shots seems to take too long. The on off button is a joke the way it designed.
