This was a replacement of the HS 510 model I owned before (no wifi and little rounded). The lens unit got stuck for no reason and canon wanted $149 to diagnose the problem even within the warranty period. The camera was bought for $129 (ah the irony). I bought this instead of paying them after filing an insurance complaint.
I've only had it for a few days, but it appears to be a really nice camera. I'm upgrading from a previous Elph. It's pretty much the same form factor as the previous one. The touch screen isn't so bad, but it's certainly not like an iPhone screen. Picture quality is good and it has a bunch of bells and whistles as well. I'm looking forward to using the camera on vacation this summer and putting it through the paces.
I was looking for a compact digital camera for use on our summer vacation. I've previously owned a Canon PowerShot SD790 that has worked great over the past 5 years but wanted to try a camera WiFi enabled with more mega pixels. This one fit my needs perfectly. Also the accessories included with the camera were valuable. Having a second battery, mini tripod, carrying case, and other items was a nice addition, Very satisfied with purchase.
