Features
Built-in Wi-Fi technology allows you to wirelessly transfer your images to social networking sites through CANON iMAGE GATEWAY#; to a PC or upload virtually anywhere on your iOS or AndroidTM device with the free download of the Canon CameraWindow app.

Canon's powerful 20x Optical Zoom and 25mm Wide-Angle lens with Optical Image Stabilizer delivers stunning images from up close or at a distance.

12.1 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor combined with the new DIGIC 6 Image Processor creates the Canon HS SYSTEM for improved low-light performance up to ISO 6400 and enhanced image quality.

Capture 1080p/60p Full HD video for high-quality capture of moving subjects.

Smart AUTO intelligently selects the proper camera settings based on 58 predefined shooting situations and Face ID function adjusts focus and exposure priority based on pre-registered faces.

New Hybrid Auto utilizes a combination of Smart AUTO and Intelligent IS to create a beautiful and steady 720p HD video clip (up to approximately 4 seconds) in Movie Digest mode every time you shoot a still image.

Intelligent IS automatically chooses from six different modes to optimize image stabilization for the shooting condition.

Remember where you were and when your photos were taken with a GPS tracker that records your location, and a logger lets you view the locations on a map using Canon software.

4 out of 5 eggsVery Satisfied

Pros: Takes a great picture. Easy to use. Also, this vender gave great service!

Cons: I really miss the view finder on the PowerShot Cameras. The initial battery could have more power. But I also purchased the "H" model of the same battery and will also carry it in the camera case. Flash location is also a little awkward for my large hands.

4 out of 5 eggsNice Camera

Pros: Compact style, takes very good pictures, and great service from the vender. Easy to use. A lot fancier than my old Canon Powershot. But this old man is figuring it out.

Cons: Short Battery life. Flash is in a awkward location.

Other Thoughts: I knew about the short battery life prior to making this purchase, so I ordered 2 newer Canon longer life batteries. I will put them through the paces in April on our first vacation of the year. Still getting use to the pop up flash. But still think it is a good Canon Camera. It is my 4th one over the years.

5 out of 5 eggsSIMPLY AWESOME

Pros: Good image stabilization
Quality Optics
Compact
Great optical and digital zoom
Good display

Cons: Auto mode great for most use, but it takes a few hours time and practice to understand how to optimize for specific shooting situations, but that is undoubtedly true for similar cameras. Directions on paper guide are not adequate to understand how to optimize and you will need to read the electronic PDF to get that information.
No viewfinder, but that is an acceptable tradeoff.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for portability for hiking/backpacking and other travel. I also own the T4i (also bought on Newegg) and that will always be used when space/weight is not a problem.
