    I’ve had a number of PowerShot cameras. Really impressed with the picture quality of the camera and the overall speed. Colors and picture quality are quite good and the low-light performance is superior. The previous review focuses nicely on the picture quality, so I wil stick with the human factors.

    Manual control and adjustment are simple to master, so you won’t need to rely on the automatic settings. My only concern with the camera is hat the wifi settings are difficult to set up. I’m pretty good with wireless technologies and it took me quite awhile to figure it out. Make sure you run the set up disk. Unlike many other consumer wireless gadgets, this one requires that you run the setup software. Couldn’t just turn on the camera and connect it to the router. As much as it pains me to say this, I should’ve read the directions prior to jumping in to try to set it up! :-)

    Once it’s setup, it works great. I’ve been transferring files to iphone, ipad, and…

    Enough said about how good this compact camera is in the other reviews. Only two quick comments: It is an excellent compact zoom camera complimentary to my SLR camera/lens collection on the road for quick shots (photo & video) without lens changing. Case Logic DCB-302 Compact Case provides good protection and a perfect fit with room for extra battery and SD card.

    Update 5/8/2013: Per Canon technical support, the battery inside the camera cannot be charged via USB port like your cell phone when connecting to PC or outside USB power source.

    Update 5/13/2013: When using “AUTO” on the dial as well as “”AUTO” ISO” in “P”, “Tv” and “Av”, the ISO is automatically selected from 80 to 1600, not to 3200 or 6400. To manually select ISO 3200 or 6400 in “P”, “Tv” and “Av”, you need to select “FUNC. SET” and then choose the 3200 or 6400 under the”ISO” list.

    Update 5/19/2013 The flashing “low battery” warning in the video mode is indeed a design fault of the battery…

    Hi there

    I’ve replied to a few reviews of this product before choosing to write my own, while keeping in mind everyone’s opinions (especially about the battery) thus far.

    Out of the way, I too noticed “problems” when shooting video on a not-fully charged battery. I put the word in quotes, because in my experience/view, it’s really a software problem that can be fixed with an upcoming firmware update. It just flashes red prematurely, and you can certainly repeat steps to have that happen consistently. Also, you’ll only get about 30 minutes or so of 1920/60fps HD video per charge (keep in mind the battery will likely be flashing red most of the time). But keep in mind, its really just a bug. When you power up your camera, the true charge is shown on the indicator.

    I took the camera with me today to shoot a typical days worth of exciting things with my kids. I took about 35 photos, and a combined 7 minutes of full HD/1920/60fps video. I also transferred a…
