"Bought this camera to replace my SX120IS."4.0 starson by kscheyeos
Pros: Improved metering and image quality. Video recording button on the back witch makes it easier to video in a pinch. Manual mode.
Cons: The battery door is questionable. When trying to take photos in continuous mode the camera becomes sluggish.
Summary: Any camera that use AA batteries you need to use rechargeables as your primary power (use NiMh with a amp rating 2300mah or higher). NonRechargeable Alkaline and lithium AA's should only be used as a backup power source. Anyone that have used digital cameras in the past should already know to use rechargeable batteries. Short battery life using alkaline's, lithium's or low Amp rechargeables (anything under 2300mah) is a give me and shouldn't be a listed as a con. Quality and make of the camera; image quality; how the camera handles and feels while using; easy of use; display size and quality should be listed in the pros and/or cons. If any camera gets a low picture count even when using rechargeables, then this is a major CON and should be returned. I have been using different digital cameras for about 10 years and I have learned my lesson when it comes to the power source of the camera the hard way.
