I just got rid of my "nicer" Nikon because I got sick of messing with the setting and still getting blurry pictures. I wanted something that could fit in my pocket and take action shots of my kids. I read reviews of the various ELPH PowerShots, and they seemed to be mixed. The ELPH 135 has turned out to be the perfect camera for my needs. It fits easily in my pocket and takes perfect pictures every single time on the AUTO setting (no more guessing which setting to use)! I can freeze my daughter jumping in the air and the picture is perfectly clear. I absolutely love this camera.

I bought this camera to replace a few older model digital cameras- a Canon about 6 yrs old, and a HP camera about 10 yrs old that stopped working along time ago. This is by far the best camera so far for the price It takes great pictures on the auto feature, which is what I plan to use exclusively. It also takes clear shots with movement- such as trains and white water. Shots are clear even with user movement. It compares well picture quality wise for movement as compared to my manual Nikon using 400 speed film. The battery lasted 9 days of our vacation without a booster charge. It is easy to learn how to use and set the date, time, etc. It is small and light-weight- fits in my pocket or purse easily. Make sure you buy a memory card with this camera, as that is not included. Amazon sells these too and reminds you to add it to the cart at time of adding it to your cart.

Bought this for my Mom as a mothers day present. She loves it and has found it very easy to use. It takes great pictures. I did set her up with a couple of standard settings for indoor or outdoor. The auto feature seems to be a bit washed out in bright sunlight, so I set her Manual mode to be more geared towards that lighting. now she just has to switch between auto for indoor and manual for outdoor.

This camera took many awesome shots while we were on bumpy terrain on a bus in Alaska.
The wide lens feature is great and zoom is exceptional.
The only complaint I have is that they do not include an instruction manual with it. Very difficult to get
operating instructions on line.

I have had a new Canon ELPH135 for a week and have found a serious defect in the published steps for changing from one Shooting Mode to another. I typically shoot in low-light conditions, so I want to be able to set the several relevant features provided by this otherwise fine camera. After going through several Canon Tech Support people, I finally found one who told me the steps that actually work (the User Guide and the online Knowledge Base incorrectly say, press the Up arrow button several times to go to a different Shooting Mode; this only cycles between the two and only two of the 16 Shooting Modes that are supposed to be available): The AUTO Shooting Mode is always available and cannot be changed. Press the Up arrow button to go to the only other Shooting Mode. Then press (1) FUNC. SET button, (2) Right arrow button, and then finally (3) Up arrow button. This presents a vertical column of icons for each Shooting Mode. You can use the Up and Down arrow buttons to scroll through all the available modes. No matter what key you press after scrolling, including turning the camera off, you will find that the Shooting Mode you have highlighted will now replace whatever the second Shooting Mode used to be.
I hope that this procedure will be helpful to anyone who uses this camera, of whatever case color.

Easy to use, instructions easy to understand, photos great. I returned complicated Samsung with instructions so small they couldn't be read.

While I have only had the camera a couple of weeks it seems to respond well and in a way the descriptors indicated. The down time from picture to picture is greatly improved and certainly better than my previous Nikon. The only thing I would criticize is that no usb connector came with the camera. I had to buy one separately and I have had a very difficult time with my order from Amazon getting it to me.

So far very happy with this camera. It suits my needs as a casual photographer. I bought it for close-up purposes and it performs well.

I really liked the look, size and feel of this camera. It fit in my jeans pocket! I was excited to find a camera that small and lightweight for travel and the price was great. I wanted to like this camera.

And then I started taking pictures and they were very grainy. We tried troubleshooting with the manual and trying different settings, lighting conditions and so forth. I really wanted to like this camera. Despite our efforts to improve quality, it remained unacceptable. (One good feature is that we found this camera and manual to be pretty easy to navigate.) The quality issue was present even when pictures were viewed on a computer monitor. For comparison, the pictures were well below the quality that I take with my iphone 4S. If the picture quality had been even comparable to my iphone, I would have kept this camera for travel as keeping the iphone charged while sightseeing all day can be challenging, especially when using it for multiple purposes. I am not a camera snob so when quality is below my acceptable standards, beware. The result is that I am returning this camera. My old Canon Powershot A570IS with only 7.1 megapixels takes much better quality pictures, but is at least twice the size. I'm hoping this old camera will last through one more trip so we have more time to research small travel cameras.

Bought this camera to replace a PowerShot A40 which is still going strong after 10 years, however it requires 4 AA batteries and very bulky to carry around. So after some research on point and shoot cameras I came to the conclusion that there are no decent ones for $100.00, until I found the ELPH135.
This is a very simple basic Point and Shoot camera that takes excellent photos and videos and is light as feather to carry.
The menu is easy to read and use and provides various types of modes and scenes. If you spend a few bucks more you can get more bells and whistles like Wi-Fi connect for the social media person.
I also like the idea you charge the battery separate and not in the camera. If a power problem just out a battery and charger only not the camera.
Our local department store had in stock at same price with no wait. Sorry Amazon.
Five Stars for the ELPH135 a perfect solution for a light weight basic point and shoot.
