I am impressed with the camera so far. I have been learning how to use it, but it is not real difficult, since I already have a Canon A570 IS. The low light images seem to work very well, since this has up to ISO 12800 capability. I have taken several indoor shots, but have yet to use the flash. This was one of the main reasons I wanted to get a better camera and this do fit what I was looking for. The size is nice for what I need at this time. I was considering a DSLR, but I was not sure if I needed something that size at this point. This does have similar functionality of the DSLR in a smaller package. The image quality is impressive. As long as you stay within the optical range, the quality remains when you zoom in or crop a photo.
I am looking forward to continue to explore the functions of this camera and use it on trips and other times.
Otherwise, the camera functions are far more than we need, great capacity for fully HD videos, multiple output modes, and one thing we haven't tried yet...WiFi data transfer to PC's, Tablets or wherever you need to send your photos. A cool function to be sure, as long as we can figure it out!
The owner's manual is nearly 300 pages...just in English...so don't be expecting an "EASY" camera. Just a really great portable for great photos. One note is the lower light "auto" seems to have a much brighter result with fewer blurry images as our last Canon PowerShot from a couple years ago. So shoot away, and have fun with it!
One reason I upgraded was for the improved low-light performance. This camera delivers, producing less noisy images in room light conditions and even producing fun photos in nighttime scenes. Going to a 12MP sensor from 10MP didn’t help the situation – more pixels means each pixel is smaller, can catch fewer photons and can be more influenced by natural noise. Improved processing from the S100 makes up for this and created some very nice imagery.
I found the HDR function to be quite weak – images captured using this function often did not look noticeably better than a single-exposure shot. It’s action is much faster, making hand-held HDR photos possible (unlike the S100, which requires a tripod). I found iPhone apps that did a much better job at this task. Also, as many folks have mentioned, battery life does not seem robust. When taking videos, the battery goes into the red awful quickly. However, I found that turning the camera off and then on again restored the battery meter to 2/3 full, and I actually got quite a bit more life out of the battery than I thought I would. Qualitatively, I think the battery life is about the same as the S100 – on a vacation day taking lots of photos, I’d generally go through two batteries (I carried a charged third on a recent vacation, but rarely used it.)
The feature I loved was the ability to upload photos to Canon’s Image Gateway, using the built-in WiFi ability. Once the photos are there, I used my iPad, iPhone or laptop to create photo albums for folks to see. It was a great way for our parents to see what we were up to on our vacation. Canon also provides another iPhone app called CameraWindow. It’s pretty simple – it allows you to view the captured images on your iPhone and save them to the iPhone. Since iPhones/iPads don’t have a place to plug in SD memory cards, this is the most direct way to get photos taking on the camera onto your iDevice. It also allows you to backup critical photos (as does Image Gateway,) so if your camera is lost or stolen, the images won’t be lost. CameraWindow is strictly a card reader, though. It does not allow your iPhone to see what the sensor sees or control the camera (take a picture) remotely. Wouldn’t that be neat!
Overall, I love this camera. The photos are impressive, the camera is robust, and the WiFi ability with the associated apps makes this a great upgrade to the S100.
Regarding the kit: The memory card and extra battery are the two useful items, although I may use the HDMI cable at some point. The camera bag is too big for this camera, and the 4" tripod is pretty basic. The screen protectors are worthless - not worth the effort to apply as they don't go on smoothly (too flimsy.) But, absent any discounts when I bought the camera, the SD card and battery were pluses.
The spare battery in my bundle is Vivitar and the SDHC card is from Toshiba (Class 10).
The screen protector wasn't great so I abandoned it.
The case is ludicrously large for this camera - I could fit seven S120s inside it and still have room for all the other pieces of the bundle.
As the bundle was essentially free I can't be too critical, but I will still have to purchase a more appropriate case or pouch.
