    This camera takes a good, fast pic in all situations in auto mode about 99% of the time. It's compact enough to fit in my fishing shoulder bag or shirt pocket. It takes good movies. Sound recording in movie mode could be better in my opinion but everything seams cheaper these days. I was impressed with it's image stabilizer. It took good pics & movies zoomed out to 12X. Night shots with flash are as good as it gets with a compact camera. Battery life is good and you can buy good off brand replacement batteries cheap if you like to take movies. I got some for $6.00 a piece @ overstock.com. When pics are blown up, they are grainy. Don't expect to get good large blowups with this camera. You'll get good 3 x 5's & good 4 x 6's or even maybe a little larger but don't expect much more. The movie button is funky but that's pretty much how they are all made these days. This is only the second camera I have owned but I've bought a few I returned because they didn't cut it for me. This one is a keeper for me. I don't view pics & movies on a high definition TV so I can't comment on that. For computer and Email it works great. The key is to downsize your movies with windows movie maker and make your Email program break apart large file sizes so you can send movies through Email. I'm hoping this is the last camera I ever have to buy.

    The Canon PowerShot ELPH 520 HS is an incredible little camera. I owned one of the first digital elphs and used it for all of my vacations and family functions. Once the wide format became popular I sold my old digital elph and purchased several other digital cameras all in which I returned or sold because they did not match the quality and style of the digital elph. I just purchased the PowerShot ELPH 520 HS and I am extremely satisfied. The camera is compact which makes an excellent camera for travel. I tested the low light photos and it beats all the competitors. One thing I recommend is to learn how to use all the functions in this camera as this will give you a variety of shooting options and your photos will have better results. One cool design on this camera is that the lens does not stick out very far when using the maximum zoom. Video quality is superb and sharp. I use an external HD light for my low light videos and they come out incredible. So I give the PowerShot ELPH 520 HS an A+.

    I've been using this camera for about 2 months and am enjoying it more all the time. The image quality isn't as good as I would like, but it's not bad as long as there is no camera shake. The color is very good, but the zoom is the best part of this little camera. I take it every where I go because it is so small. I would have liked to have control of the f stops and shutter speed, but that is not an option. I always use the camera on the program setting - not on auto and my photos are good to very good. In this mode I can select the ISO and the color settings. I think that the screen needs to be adjusted on the bright side to avoid over exposure and I always use the exposure trim to help in this regard also . Now that I have used the camera for a while I like it more all the time. It's not the best for capturing super detail, but the pictures are very nice.

    This little camera exceeds our expectations for a camera in this price range. The camera is nice and small, lightweight, and its zoom is fantastic. I have gotten close ups that I never expected were possible with such a basic camera. The battery charge seems to be good too. This is a great camera.

    This camera is small, light, easy to operate and takes great photos. The Walmart price was exceptionally low. Photo quality with the optical zoom is fantastic. I have seen reviews of the ELPH 520 which criticize the buttons/controls. I do not see a problem. Canon squeezed a lot of functionality/ control into this small package.

    I have owned Canon point and shoot cameras before. I have not printed the pictures yet but on camera they appear a bit fuzzy. I spent extra on this as I am taking an Alaskan cruise and wanted top notch pics. Hope I am not going to be disappointed as I do not have time to change the camera.
