I just got this camera yesterday. I love everything about it. Especially the size.. This is pic of the moon, but not at full zoom. And my hands are very shaky. So it may be a little blurred. I will invest in a tripod.

This camera will meet an exceed all of your expectations. It's features, tried, and tested on so many other Cannon Cameras, are so many, that I personally doubt you will use all of them. This is my opinion.

Great compact camera! This camera gives you excellent quality photos and its half the size of great quality cameras. The zoom is amazing, and gives you just as good quality as without the zoom. the flash is nice and bright. Definitely recommend this camera for anyone looking for something pratical and easy to use.

This camera was a Christmas present for my fiance, and and upgrade from the point and shoot we have had for several years. She is the photographer of the family anyway, and I wanted her to have a camera with better capabilities. Judging her excitement in the past week, I think the new camera is just what she needed to increase her abilities.
