Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"Well, the camera takes great pics, BUT unfortunately, the bottom broke, and I believe its not holding the battery in properly, so my battery life doesn't last long now."
_
"A second battery would partially solve that problem I suppose."
_
"Only drawback is that it does not have a viewfinder so you cannot conserve battery by turning off the LCD."
_
"As soon as I brought it to the seller's attention, they sent me a new battery and a prepaid return label to send the dead one back."
_
"Didn't expect the following problem - the door on the battery memory opens every time I touch it (e. g. trying to get it out of the camera bag), while at the same time the door on the the AV outputs has top be struggled with to get it opne."
_
"Nothing has ever broke and I'm very happy with the battery life."
_
"It has a better quality elevated flash that is very effective, and the rechargeable battery retains its charge impressively."
_
"Like SO many others, this camera was great while it was working, but then one day the battery died while the lens was open and that's when we too were inflicted with the notorious 'Lens Error- Restart Camera' issue."
_
"At first it was great, easy to use, good battery life, nice size, good pics, etc."
_
"The battery life is excellent I can charge it and use it over the next 2-3 weeks without another charge."
_
"Great battery life!"

Compact

Compact:
"I have 4 cameras including the canon S3IS, Canon SX200 IS (the camera we used for our photos), the Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ28 (which also takes high quality photos, just seems the SX200 takes more vivid photos), and the casio sx-12 (a ultra compact with nice but not exceptional photos)."
_
"I also love the look of this camera, it is gorgeous and the perfect compromise between compact size and a full set of features."
_
"cons:-flash pops up (this doesn't bother me as much but it is annoying)-compact size but longer...from the picture it looks to be a good size but it is a bit longer (width) and thicker than i would like."
_
"i've had nikon cameras all my life and this is my first canon (i know, i know), the only reason i didn't get a nikon is because they don't have a decent super-zoom compact, there's the p6000 but...lots of issues with that."
_
"Compact and durable, the photos were all I could hope for."
_
"The design of this is amazing, from how compact it is to the shape of the the hand grip it all feels so comfortable."
_
"I think it is an excellent choice if you want a compact camera with many functions and an excellent optical zoom."
_
"Also, the first shot speed is a bit lagged (confirming what was reported in Consumer Reports).All in all I'm very happy with this product and would recommend it to anyone looking for a reasonably priced compact camera with a short learning curve."
_
"- Pop-up flash seems sturdy enough unless you abuse your cameras and presents no problem for holding it- Image quality is good- Zoom is awesome- Price is quite fair for the value- Good battery life (though I don't use the flash much)- The charger is nice - compact and light, and the plug folds in."

Design

Design:
"It failed due to faulty workmanship or design."
_
"To be fair, it was repaired under warranty, and the process to send it in was quick and fairly painless, but it does point to a weak spot in the design of this camera."
_
"* This smart mechanism seems the right compromise to this flash design."
_
"Notice Canon has made three designs to combat this problem (e. g. indented thumbprint above controls on back of camera, curved body on right side of camera, and about 3 4 inch space to place finger behind the flash."
_
"The price was fantastic and the only design flaw I don't care for is the spring loaded flash that pops up goes easily unnoticed before you turn the camera on."
_
"The design of this is amazing, from how compact it is to the shape of the the hand grip it all feels so comfortable."
_
"So this is a quick and easy feature to disable the flash and not an annoying design problem."
_
"When you're taking pics of kids and animals, that extra 3 seconds is nice; I actually think it's pretty clever design."
_
"I highly recommend this camera if you are lookig for a compact design with loads of features and great optical zoom."

Fit

Fit:
"What i found that it does not easily fit into trouser pockets."
_
"(1) if you takes a lot of pictures with kids playing sports where your subject is in motion, this camera is not a good fit."
_
"The zoom is AMAZING and it still fits in your pocket."
_
"Well, very much liked this camera...small enough to fit in my pocket but with a nice zoom lense."
_
"But other than that, I love the camera, it fits my needs perfectly and though it is a tad bulkier and heavier than the normal compact camera, it is still small enough to be carried around in your jacket pocket."
_
"This camera, while bigger than the PowerShots, is still compact enough to fit in your pocket, purse, or whatnot, for easily accessible photo opportunities."
_
"The menus are intuitive enough that I don't need to carry the manual with me, its small enough to fit comfortably in a belt pouch (but not really what I'd call small) It's lightweight, and has a nice sturdy shell (though I would never want to drop it while the zoom lens is extended)I was impressed that the pop-up action of the flash (which people have expressed annoyance at) is not motor driven, its a neat design where it's either spring-loaded outward or inward."

Flash

Flash:
"I fell off the boat seat while taking pictures and broke the flash :( I taped it down and have used the camera like that for about a year now."
_
"Now the flash is hidden in a compartment that flips up when the camera is turned on and sometimes my finger gets in the way, but its hard not to notice when it's trying to pop up."
_
"I am a little disappoint with flash location and its pop up for I seem to always have my finger over it and hope it does not get damaged from holding down."
_
"So forget the flash as a problem and think of it as a feature."
_
"The two complaints that I read about is that the popup flash is annoying and the zoom feature is disabled in video recording mode."
_
"This is true, but an important feature that people failed to mentioned when I was reading the reviews is that the flash is actually really easy to push down with your left index finger and that when you push it down, the flash is automatically disabled."
_
"The price was fantastic and the only design flaw I don't care for is the spring loaded flash that pops up goes easily unnoticed before you turn the camera on."
_
"It has a better quality elevated flash that is very effective, and the rechargeable battery retains its charge impressively."
_
"Most pictures have been outdoors, but even so, the pop up flash (which hasn't bothered me) works great."
_
"The problem with the flash popping up is not a problem at all."
_
"I actually think the popup flash is a great feature."

Focus

Focus:
"Extremely disappointed in the camera's ability- or NON-ability to focus in midrange."
_
"I can save many more pictures and much more video per GB than on previous cameras, even set at 720p video-Survived a 1m fall, with no noticeable damageCons:-I frequently find myself wishing I could force a flash in Automatic mode-The manual settings are difficult to use, even to try to force a flash-It's easy to automatically move the scene dial, which sometimes means being in unfamiliar settings-Automatic focus isn't as good in low-light situations-Auto focus also isn't too good in Macro with zoom."
_
"- Not particularly good for macro work; it has trouble focusing at very close distances sometimes- As with any small point and shoot, shooting with the flash is iffy."
_
"For instance, it has a horrible time focusing on glossy white objects."
_
"I love the zoom ability of the camera, but couple it with the focus problems and it is darn near useless."
_
"I can only say that while this camera worked it did take wonderful photographs, the face tracking worked well and color, focus were both well done and accurate."
_
"-Very good night pictures, even on Auto-Colour is vivid and beautiful-Automatic Macro focus is sometimes very useful-The HD video is great."
_
"I especially love how I can set the settings manually (such as the focus, aperture, shutter speed and color)and the great number of features I can choose from!"
_
"I restarted my search, this time focusing on cameras with greater zoom capability, since I had decided to up my budget and didn't need anything tiny."
_
"I shot number of shots on the same focus length and I was amazed to see images coming out of this came."

Manual:
"It is true that one can fix this problem by turning on the manual white balance mode and setting it by hand for every photo."
_

SLR

SLR:
"Cons: somewhat bulky (but still smaller than a SLR), annoying pop-up flash, grainy LCD screen in low light."
_
"I own a Canon EOS 50D (digital SLR) but also like to have a smaller point-and-shoot for travel or situations where the snap-click noise of an SLR is unacceptable."
_
"The Bottom Line: This camera is a keeper, but you'll want to keep your SLR for the most important or challenging occasions."
_
"Not a knock on this camera, I think it's very hard to get really good shots with a flash unless you have a nice external flash like with an SLR.- Image stabilization works well, everything comes out sharp unless there's just not enough light."
_
"overall, in this size range it's amazing, If you want more you'll have to go to SLR range"

_
"The footage looks pretty good on my computer display in a large QuickTime window, but is not good enough for a larger screen (TV)."
_
"Some superficial light scratches on the screen but none Im worried about."
_
"- Big, clear screen; can get washed out somewhat in sunlight but still usable- Small enough to be very portable, but not a shirt-pocket camera."

Setting

Setting:
"But conversely, I sometimes get some pretty bad ones, usually due to waiting for a camera to respond or set up a shot, or just Automatically choosing a wrong setting."
_
"The lens retraction is really TOO slow the same as the shooter (easy to lost THE moments).The auto setting MANY times fails (really bad), you can't trust on it to take a good picture... Is better to use manual settings."

Size:
