  • It connects to WIFI!!!

    I absolutely love this camera. I bought this back in April 2014 because I have just started enjoying the birds in my yard. The camera on my iPhone doesn't zoom in enough or give truly good quality pictures. So, I invested in my first "high end" camera. I still haven't learned all the different features, I will do that this winter. Using as a point & shoot is great & the zoom is awesome as well as video. Best part of all you can upload pictures to your phone/iPad via an app on wifi!! How awesome is that feature!?!?!?This camera is definitely worth the money. I have taken so many pic of birds & my 3 miniature dachshunds.

  • Power Shot Canon Camera

    So far I love my camera...BUT it took a while to figure out how to use the Wi-Fi. once I got over that frustration it was pretty smooth sailing. I haven't had a change to use it a lot. weather hasn't been good in the south East. But for the money, I'm completely satisfied. Love the payment plan also!

  • Not worth the price!

    The instructions are horribly written and it is extremely difficult to use the wi-fi feature. For the price of the camera, it should have had touch screen and better video capabilities. The only nice thing I can say about the camera is that the pictures turn out good. However I want to be able to use all of the features and this camera is not user friendly.
