Good: Full manual controls yet excellent auto options, good quality pictures
Bad: Manual could be clearer
Comment: Good all-round digital camera with ease of use and advanced features all packed into a small size compact body. Canon's printer options and online picture viewing/printing are a bonus.
Good: The coupled optical viewfinder which zooms with the useful 4X optical zoom. The controls and menu.
Bad: The rather flimsy leaf-spring battery contacts in the door of the battery compartment which can cause loss of power to the camera
Comment: Apart from the battery contacts problem which I am consulting Canon about, I am very pleased with this camera which I will use often as a more portable option to my larger prosumer camera. Recommended with the sole reservation stated.
