I bought the camera last month before going on holiday to NW of Spain. It was easy to carry the camera around everywhere, and the picture quality is outstanding.

I bought this camera because it is compact, light weight, and has a good zoom. I have used the Powershot before and have had good luck with them. The only problem I have is that I am very rough with a camera and the lens begins to get a problem. I think if I take better care of it, maybe the lens will work longer!
This camera is small and can feel "slippery" in your hands but it comes with a strap. The wifi connection was incredibly easy for me to figure out, took maybe an entire 10 minutes of fiddling. I connected the camera to my iPhone and the pictures went straight to my camera roll; it was awesome. I don't know why some people were saying that it was difficult. The zoom is fantastic, and some of the different features/filters/"lenses" it comes with are pretty cool but it was easier to just photoshop them on my phone. This was my first experience with Canon (mostly used Sony) and I will probably use Canons for the rest of my life.
Also, I got the red one, which I'll admit looks kinda pink in person. I love the pink hue myself, but maybe some guys would be pretty disappointed that its not super red.
Bought the SX620 to replace my SX280 that is still working. Like the size and ease of use for traveling. The SX 620 seems to preform better in low light than the SX 280 and it is easier to hold since the flash does not automatically popup. Very easy and intuitive to program and use. The Android setup on our LG phone was snap. The Windows 10 setup was more complex and took a little longer. Overall, this is Superb Work. Thanks Canon
This camera is small and light enough to carry easily. It will fit in a typical pants pocket or in a small pouch with a belt loop.
It takes very good photos which appear clear and lifelike even when enlarged to a reasonable level. Unlike some other small cameras, the photos do not have an excessively grainy or fuzzy look and the colors are good.
It is probably not the best choice for action photography, although I was able to get some usable photos at a recent bike race. The 25x zoom is more than adequate.
Note that you must take the battery out of the camera and put it in the separate battery charger (supplied with the camera) to charge the battery. The camera USB cable port only works for transferring photos.
There is no USB cable included with the camera. The cable is available from Canon or online at other sources. For quick and easy photo transfer, the USB cable is almost a necessity and costs only a few dollars.
The camera operates mostly automatically and generally does a good job. There are some additional settings featured in the "P" program mode, but full manual control is not an option. There is no function dial so the user must go into the camera menus to change most (but not all) settings. This is not a camera for someone who likes to adjust settings before taking each picture
With the Canon app, I can transfer photos via wi-fi from the camera to my Apple i-phone. The Canon app also allows the camera to be operated via remote control.
I could have spent a lot more. But for typical photography of people and places, the SX620HS suits my needs and is small and light enough to take almost anywhere.
I purchased the SX620 due to it's small size and weight. I thought I'd be more likely to carry it with me on a day to day basis because of it's light weight and small size. I've had and still use a G10. Unfortunately, my hands are too large and the controls on the SX620 are too small and too close together making it impossible to navigate through the different functions. I would only recommend this camera to those with small hands.
