Most helpful reviews

Bob, Devizes Professional photographer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Excellent camera — easy to use
Bad points:
Would have preferred screen tilt to allow high or low level pictures with 'portrait' orientation.

Would have liked to be able to use Canon geotag module on camera — although the smartphone app seems to do a good job for free.

Confirmed Purchaser, Eye, Suffolk Keen amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
the screen is fabulous, especially the touch focus on the screen - makes it much easier than doing manually
have just had one outing with it so far so will need a lot more time to get to know it - but am happy so far
Bad points:
The camera is a lot heavier to hold than I expected
there isn't as much flexibility with the screen - which I guess I expected - ie it doesn't twist 360 like my previous Canon Powershot -
you have to download a proper manual to get into any detail
