I will give this camera 5 stars, I have owned over the years the previous models sx120 and sx130 and never any issues with them and when I saw this newer model camera on Black Friday going on sale for such a great price even though I was not looking for one camera , I did not thought twice, I had to buy it , I will not change models as long as Cannon makes this SX series. Great pictures, Wonderful colors, lots of optical zoom will bring your subjects closer to you and the captured details are impressive, lots of extra features like the professional cameras do but for far less money and easy to use.. I have received many complements on my previous SX models I have owned, I would still expect many more compliments on my new SX160, it just looks very nice and 1expensive and well made , it might be little bigger than other point and shot cameras but in reality is not , It has improved from the previous SX models. Cannon did not sacrifice on extra features found on more expensive cameras, which also include video recording, lots of features for the money even if not on sale , it will be a great price for this camera , Manual flash is not a big problem once you get used to it. it will let you know on screen to raise the flash when needed. Battery life not a problem since it uses AA batteries, found anywhere, but I would suggest to buy the rechargeable AA batteries for around 10 dollars and they will last a very long time so you will be able to recharge them and reuse them , is worth it. You will not be disappointed. I love this camera. Cannon is the way to go..
