"Excellent, light weight, point and shoot camera."5.0 starson by kbars1026
Pros: Light-weight, easy to use, excellent zoom and focus. The light sensor allows for better non-flash pictures in low light. Great value. Does Macro even on Auto just by point of focus. Very versatile.
Cons: No optical view finder, large LCD screen uses batteries quickly, very bright flash.
Summary: I've been a canon user for about 10 years (this is camera number 3, gave the others away...they all still work!). When I saw the zoom, focus, and image stabilization on this new model, I knew it was time for an upgrade. The only thing I would change about this camera is to have an optical view finder. Other than that, this camera is an incredible deal. I'm getting way more out of this camera than I would expect from a point-and-shoot. I highly recommend the Canon Powershot SX160 IS.
