Review Excerpt

  • Compact 12x zoom; Optical image stabilization; Full HD movies; Handheld Night Scene mode; Good shutter lag time.

  • Uses microSD media; Short battery life; Flash is weak; Soft at telephoto; Tiny buttons.

  • Slim and stylish camera body designed with Canon's classic "box-and-circle" look; highly portable, versatile 12x lens; gorgeous 3.2-inch screen.

  • Built-in WiFi could be easier to use; not everyone will like the touchscreen; average image quality and below average battery life.
