    "I expected more from the camera given the high price point. It was initially very promising with its great features like the optical zoom, optical image stabilization, full zoom as a handheld, without a tripod - and without reducing the resolution of the pictures. Picture quality was a disappointment, and I ended up returning it. "

    "I am just an average person who enjoys a good camera. I have two older Canon cameras (Powershot A610 and S5IS) which I have thoroughly enjoyed. Most of my pictures are foliage, kids/pets, and landscapes. I wanted more zoom power and more megapixels; therefore, I needed a new camera. This is why I got this one. It's great."
