Advantages: Good picture quality, easy picture upload
Disadvantages: Flash charging for too long, drains batteries, takes too long to take pictures
This is my first time i brought Canon camera. I did a little bit of researching and didnt want to spend too much money as already have good camera on my phone. I decided to go for this camera as it has a which award 2011 and and quite a good specs including 3x optical zoom, 10 megapixels, decent size lcd screen. It proves to be very handy and its smart looking. I am very impressed with the picture quality, it takes nice clear pictures and specially impressed with the pictures I have taken at night with night mode on. Transferring pictures onto the PC is super easy, I just take SC card out and put it into the PC. No massive technical skills required, another way of transferring files can be via USB cable that comes with it which is equally as easy.
On a negative side, it drains batteries, i have to make sure i have two spare at all times as they dont last very long. Menu is little a bit complicated compared to my previous camera. Flash charging takes too long and by the time camera is ready to take pictures my daughter has stopped smiling or has gone to do something else. It also takes too long to take picture and sometimes i need to press the button several times to take the picture. Sadly this camera is not for me and unfortunatelly after I brought it I was not able to return it otherwise i would have done so.
