The most durable digital camera I have ever owned! I have two small kids who love to take pictures with this Canon PowerShot! The on/off button is silver and easy to read with letters in all caps. The button to press to snap the pictures is to the right of the on/off button, can't miss it. As you click the on button, the camera lens comes out. The menu button is easy to read with white letters in a gray background. The quality of the pictures is outstanding, not professional quality though. If not in use for a few minutes, the camera will shut off. I have taken many video recordings on the Canon Powershot. The recordings look perfect when I download them on my desktop computer. I say this camera has nine lives because my kids and myself included have dropped the camera countless times. The camera never had an issue with delivering good quality photos and video recordings! The camera itself is compact and light, I have a camera case to store it. I recommend buying a case to protect it from bumping around in a purse. Image Quality Love my pictures. I snap a lot of pics of my kids. I value the image quality since I want to create the best tangible memories for my children as they grow up. Performance Canon has a solid reputation for performance! Ease of Use Simple Design, easy to use. Kid tested and approved! Durability It has been dropped more times than I can count and it is still ticking! Battery Life Has an average battery life, try to charge it biweekly.
