Nice ELPH 140
on August 2, 2014
I purchased the PowerShot ELPH 140 IS for my wife, to replace a similar but lost Canon SD 1200 IS that was several years old and never had any problems. This camera seems superior; it takes sharp pictures and has a better zoom. As with many Amazon purchases, the reviews help make the decision and I went this model to have the stabilization. We do not use any of the fancy features, just put it on Auto and it takes nice pictures. I wanted a good, easy to use, reasonably priced, small, point & shoot and this meets that need. Was concerned that maybe this was a light weight plastic case that would feel too light and cheap, but it is metal, has a nice heft (for it's size) and looks and feels like good quality. You have to separately order a memory card. I got extra points from my wife for this surprise purchase.
I spent some time finding the right case, so I will mention here that I got the Case Logic DCB-302 case, a very nice case and the camera fits very well. It is a nice size with a separate pocket for accessories, but if you want a really small case, it may be a little big. The accessory pocket will hold a flip phone.
