Maybe it's that me and the touch screen can't get along. I can never seem to get this camera to do what I want when i want. I did take it to the beach one early morning and enjoyed playing with the settings but in a crunch...like when the picture matters, it's a bit to fumble with and the 'auto' is never up to par in my book. I was disappointed since I have always been an elph fan! Image Quality Good...not great! Performance slow shutter, difficult navigation Ease of Use It's not easy to use at all... Durability it has been dropped a time or two and everything seems to be intact. Portability great size and weight.
