Pros: - excellent 12x zoom for the size. Im used to 5x but 12x optical is nice feature
- image stabilization works well
- quick start-up times
- nice looking design. reminiscent of Elph cameras of past
Cons: - low light image quality is grainy, pretty much a daylight camera.
- using micro SD-card can be inconvenient since need to use adapter
Other Thoughts: This camera is an excellent replacement to my older canon powershot. I was sold on design that is like my old 35mm Elph camera I had in the 90's. But besides the design, this camera stand out feature is its compact ultra 12x zoom. This is great for times like going to concerts and you need to sneak in camera to get close-up shots from far away. This camera will do the trick. I'm very pleased with the daylight quality shots. Its spot on sharp and the zoom shots look great as well. However where this camera lacks is low light quality. I shot some images indoors and its was grainy but acceptable. I tried using the flash but I only use it if its too dark. Overall Im very happy with my new Canon elph 520 and would recommend for anyone looking for an ultra compact pocketable 12x zoom camera to take on trips where they need that extra zoom without the bulk and weight of a larger camera.
