Ease of Use

This camera has functioned perfectly. If you plan on taking movies, be sure to get at least a 4GB memory card for it as in the full resolution mode it takes up 180MB per minute of recording time. The movies can be taken in two lesser resolution modes that use 90MB and 45MB per minute respectively. The camera files are in JPG format, a RAW format is not available.

I was looking for a good replacement camera for one that had electronics failure. Our daughter has a previous version (SX130) of this camera and she has been pleased with it. I read the review on Amazon and noted the battery usage issue, but felt I could do well with some rechargeable batteries. They have done OK. The quality of photos is what I wanted to have, and ordered accordingly. However, I was very disappointed with the clarity of about 30-40 percent of the pictures, taken with a wide variety of settings, according to the scenes I was shooting. I followed the directions sent with the camera, telling me I need to push the shutter button part way to allow the camera to pre-focus for a clear shot.
