This camera is almost exactly what I wanted, and takes great pictures. I am a field biologist and it use it for all my photography needs while in the field. The zoom is very powerful, and it has all kinds of fun setting to play with. Activating the GPS option is a bit awkward, and it wears down your battery fast. But under the right situations it could be a useful tool.

this camera is heavy and a bit bulky, but it is durable and has got to have the best zoom on a point and shoot I've handled. taking pictures zoomed in takes a steady hand but after a bit of practice this is an all around great camera.

I have several different Canon cameras. For a small portable I've always used the Elf. I decided to break with tradition and give this one a try. While slightly larger it still fits nicely in my pocket. But why I really picked this one was for the zoom. Fantastic for a small portable. I would buy it again!

Such an amazing zoom and image quality.

Battery has a good autonomy and is quickly chargeable.

A little boring to get used to the way it should be handled as flash may touch the finger (just need to get used).

Always had Canons and will keep on it

I got this for my wife to take on a trip to Europe. It does a great job of taking quality pics above her phone but smaller and lighter than her EOS.

I thoroughly enjoy using this little camera. I have two larger bridge cameras that I use when I know that I'm going out to photograph specific things. I use this camera when I'm going for casual walks. I do a lot of walking on the Gettysburg battlefield for exercise. I enjoy using this camera when I am walking because of the size of the camera. The zoom is fantastic for such a small camera. I primarly use the manual exposure feature and am able to get some really quality photos using this method, from close up of wildflowers to zoom photos of birds that I see on the battlefield.
I have purchased two spare batteries for this camera. I have found that the low battery indicator doesn't accurately show a progression from fully charged to almost discharged. With the spare batteries I am never out of power.
The only con that I see is that the rotating ring that is used to change ISO or shutter speed is rather sensative and I find myself constanly accessing other features that I am not intending to change or use. A light touch is required when rotating this ring.
I have been using this camera for over a month now and have gotten some really quality photos. The images are crisp and rich in color. I don't use the auto settings because often the resulting images tend to be a little over exposed. This I find is normal though with the auto setting on most cameras. I haven't used the video feature at all since I have a high definition camcorder.
I am thoroughly satisfied with this camera and find that it meets my needs as an avid amateur photographer. I am very particular about the quality of the images that I capture. This camera meets all of my expectations.

LOVE this camera. I ordered the SX280, but did not think the pictures were very good, so downgraded BACK to the sx260. The other was to replace my sx260. Not sure why companies try to make things better when earlier versions of most things, seem to work better.

The zoom on this camera is very nice. The clarity of pictures and video are really great. I thought this camera had a way to
email from the camera but I was wrong in thinking that the "GPS" function did this. The GPS idea is kinda dumb. But I do like the camera and would recommend it. One tip...do not let Cannon have the opportunity to send you marketing email...They go way overboard on daily junk mail...
