I love my Powershot camera! I have had it for years now and it has never disappointed me. There are so many great features to this camera, from being able to take pictures in black and white or sepia to being able to suddenly change to taking videos instead with a simple flick of a switch. I love how easy this camera is to use and how wonderful the quality of the photos are. Even without flash, with a little bit of learning it's been easy to still take excellent photos. I was able to take some beautiful no-flash photos of my newborn in the hospital that I will treasure forever! There are times when you can take an excellent photo with this camera that is comparable to a much pricier camera. I take this camera with me everywhere, especially with little children you never know when they will do something I want to photograph or videotape. It has been a great and durable little camera, even when my two year old got her hands on the camera she was able to take several pictures but not damage the camera at all.
