This review is from: Canon PowerShot SX500 IS 16.0 MP Digital Camera (Black) + Replacement NB-6L Battery + 32GB Deluxe Accessory Kit (Electronics)
Got this unit for my 13 year old daughter who was showing interest in photography. The ability to shoot in manual mode combined with the intro-level tripod, and the smaller camera body size, made it ideal for her. Using the 2-second delay, she can get good steady low light or night shots using a longer exposure. The light meter works great when doing this. Just dial the shutter speed until the meter on the lcd is in the middle, hit the shutter button, and get your hands off the camera within the 2 second delay that you can set. Great results. On the tripod, of coarse. As far as automatic point and shoot with flash, the results were very good as well.
