i am loving this camera!!! takes a little to figure out how to use the proper settings to get the best shot but man. not sure if im doing it right but you can set it on macro mode then switch with ratio to 1:1, when u upload it on the computer u can really zoom in without it getting fuzzy. take a look at some of my favorite pics i took with this camera. also one last thing when you have it zoomed all the way out its very handy to have a tripod. overall i love this little camera.

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.

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.

The saying, you pay for what you get, is true. The video on this camera exceeded my hope for clear pictures with a great zoom. The pictures were Very Very clear. The sound on the camera was very low but when transferred to the computer was great. I was worried that the sound would be the same. I wish the sound on the camera was louder. Over all, the pictures I took this weekend as a whole were very nice and the camera captures low light images very well. My greatest disappointment was with the book manual which was not detailed enough for me. For the price I got more than I expected. Although the camera is not a pocket size I opted for the zoom capabilities since I am into wildlife photoes.

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.

I have been a Photographer since 1945. I have been through Linhofs, Speed Graphics, Rollieflex,Minolta Autocords and a million different 35mm. cameras. I started using Canon Products in 1957 when Canon open an assembly plant in Switzerland . I gave up my beloved T-90s when I retired from the Newspaper I worked for. I then went to the DSLR EOS and was happy with the results , but as I got older all the cameras and lenses got a little heavy to be carrying around. I then started with the Canon G series until I got to the G7 and the Sensor burner out after 5 years. With the cost of the G series I figured they should last a lifetime. I just bought The Power Shot SX500 IS and spent the first day reading the advanced manual that comes on the DVD and trying out things as I went along. This little camera is amazing. It does everything that I use to have to carry a 30 Lbs. gadget bag around for. The picture quality is amazing. the 24-720mm zoom in amazing. The only problem I have found so far is that the LCD viewfinder has a tendency to get grainy (noisy) in low light, but I can live with that if the rest of the camera holds up longer the G7 did. My Best Buy.

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.
