5 out of 5 eggsGood camera

This review is from: Canon ELPH 520 HS 6174B001 Blue 10.1 MP 12X Optical Zoom 28mm Wide Angle Digital Camera HDTV Output

Pros: Small
GOod pics
Equal to my cannon powershot that cost twice as much

Cons: The battery that comes with the camera would 3/4 of aday at Disney. Fortunatley, we had the Wasabi brand battery on hand and it would last about a 1 1/3 days at Disney.

Other Thoughts: Have cameras in past that cost $600 and this would do as well as them or get close to it. If you know how to change settings properly and know what they mean (which most dont) this camera WILL do very good pics.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat little camera

This review is from: Canon ELPH 520 HS 6174B001 Blue 10.1 MP 12X Optical Zoom 28mm Wide Angle Digital Camera HDTV Output

Pros: Good size, well constructed camera. Takes nice pictures and videos. Dark shots are about on par with other subcompact cameras. Longer zoom than most subcompacts as well.

Cons: This is mainly a camera I keep in the car and use when I dont feel like lugging my DSLR around. It is a lot slower than a DSLR, but I guess I cannot really call that a con, just the way it is. I guess my con would be that the case gets smudged with fingerprints a little more often than most cameras.

Other Thoughts: Decent for a compact point and shoot. Takes good pictures. I would not expect to see super amazing pictures from a very small for factor camera. That is what my DSLR is for. I replaced an SD780IS with this, and I am definitely happy with the upgrade.
