4 out of 5 eggsGood value

Pros: - Low price.
- Excellent image quality after switching to highest bitrate for MP4 video and 60 fps.
- Rotate and swivel display is nice feature.
- Image Stabilization (IS) is great.
- Nice zoom amount. Digital zoom isn't overbearing and is subtle.
- Battery life indicator seems to be very accurate.

Cons: - Lens cover is not electronically controlled, wish it was because I sometimes forget to close it.
- Viewing angle on display isn't that great. It's a TN panel, wish they had used an IPS or OLED display.
- The rotating and swivel display feels a bit low quality, like it could break with little force.
- Doesn't auto power off when plugged into computer, even when there is no file copy operations and the camera is idle. I hope they add this capability in a firmware update.

Other Thoughts: I decided to buy another Canon camera because they treated me well on a previous camera of theirs. After three years said camera started having CCD problems and took bad pictures. I sent it into them for warranty repair and they fixed that plus another issue I didn't ask them to and had it back to me in less than a week. I can only hope I will get this level of service again should something go wrong with this camera.

So far i'm really happy with the camera. I am still learning all its features and functions. I'll post another review in a couple months after I get more acquainted.

It is my opinion that touchscreens for these cameras are a bit of an annoyance. Sure some things its nice, but I would just prefer an old fashioned dial to switch between shooting modes. I find trying to find the desired mode and setting to be at times cumbersome and slow with the touchscreen.
