    Great little camera

    Customer review by Rushv

    5.0 stars by Rushv

    Pros: Size- small enough to carry around without being burdensome. - Excellent zoom - Takes great high resolution pics - superb video capabilities - with a high Speed SD card, has a good refresh rate Cons: Flash must recharge before another pic can be taken. Takes anywhere from 2-5 seconds to charge between shots. Without flash, no problems. Overall, I am very pleased with this litte camera. I took the family to DisneyWorld for two weeks (I know-long time) and didn't want to carry my SLR around all day-every day. This camera was perfect and will now be my "carry along" camera and the SLR will be reserved for scenery and family pics. The zoom is outstanding for a camera this size and the stabilizer helps to substantially reduce blurry photos. When using the flash, don't expect to catch multiple shots within seconds, because the flash must recharge, which takes 2-5 seconds. Still, for the money, it was a great buy.

    I absolutely love this camera! I've had it for a little more than a week and have taken over 600 pictures. The shutter speed is a little slow, BUT there is a setting where you can hold down the shutter and it'll keep taking pics as long as you hold the button down! Videos are great and have great sound. I've been taking videos and pictures of my kids playing softball and the videos came out clear. You can switch from video to photos easily since there is a separate button to start/stop recording. There's tons of features I haven't even worked with yet. I have a friend who had a Canon EOS REBEL T3 who has lens envy after we went out to take pics together. I was able to zoom in and get closer pics that she could even though she has a big lens on her camera. If I had to say anything negative about this camera, it's that it is a battery vampire. I bought a pack of rechargeable batteries and I keep an extra set in my camera bag. When taking videos it seems to use more battery power than just taking pictures so if you don't plan on taking a lot of videos you might want to find something else.

    Is it possible to add to the lense other zoom lenses?
    by LivingAngel 12/9/2013
    • No, but the average amateur and many professionals would not need another zoom lens. The 16x optical zoom and 42x digital zoom should be enough for almost anyone. The advantage to this single zoom lens is that the camera can be used in a wide variety of situations including hiking and biking without the bulkiness associated with the professional's various zoom lenses. Besides, you would need a tripod for sure if you get beyond the 16x range.

    • I will answer this question again, this time with the correct information. Another asked the same question and I said no. But, yes, it is true that the camera does not itself have wifi, however you can install an Eye-Fi card in the place of the normal SD memory card, SDHC memory card, or SDXC memory card. This will give you wifi capability. The use of the Eye-Fi card may be prohibited in some areas since the transmissions of the card cannot be eliminated even if the card is put in the disable mode. Instructions on how to use this Eye-Fi card are included in the down loadable manual. It is probably better that you use the USB cable for your computer included with the camera and/or a purchase separately HDMI cable for the TV or AV cable for the TV. These last two cables should be purchased from Cannon using the information in the manual. Also, please note that the manual states that the camera will not support all Eye-Fi cards' functions. Plus, permission may be required to even have the Eye-Fi installed in the camera.

    • No. It connects to a computer via the included USB cord and has software on a DVD to transfer and manage pictures and video.

    • No, it does not have wi-fi. If you use an eye-fi card, however, that card will have wi-fi built into it regardless, giving you the wi-fi capability needed.

    Are the batteries included with this camera nimh or alkaline batteries?
    by Guitarbird 11/13/2013
    • The camera has a expandable and retractable lens cover and the batteries included are just cheepo throw aways that will not last long in the camera. You should get rechargeable AA batteries and a good recharger.

    • Yes, the lens retracts and then the cover closes over the lens. The batteries that came with mine are Panasonic LR6 Industrial AA alkaline. They didn't last an hour before I got a low-battery alert. I put in Energizer rechargeable batteries and I've played with it 3 days (several hours of use) using the zoom and video and it's still going strong.

    • Two alkaline batteries are enclosed. It does have a built-in lens cover.

    • The lens is covered and protected when the camera is turned off. The included batteries are alkaline, but you can purchase four Sanyo eneloop precharged rechargeable nmh batteries with a compatible 4 battery charger, on Amazon for about 19 bucks. Pre-charged nmh batteries hold their charge for over a year. Regular nmh batteries lose their charge when not used in a month or two
      by latency12/21/2013

    • I believe that they are alkaline. Be sure to have spare AA batteries with you in the camera case because the batteries will pretty quickly run down if you use the motorized optical zoom frequently. Not many shots between the low battery warning and dead batteries. Whether you decide to use alkalines or rechargable batteries is your choice.

    • Well when the lens pop out from the camera it uncovered till you shut it off or till retract by itself. 2nd Question: NiMh is a better batteries giving longer power than regular batteries. You will find that battery drains faster in colder weather. May you find the light of the world so that you won't stumble into the dark potholes of the world. ♡♥♡
