i've always loved canon products they seemed to always work great for me. I only ues the camera for personal uses, such as pictures of friends, i do use it for some photography and i get excelent results. I love the color selction setting. Most canons have the setting, but it really makes your pictures pop. The only negatives i have about the camera is the small screen size, although becuase the size of the camera, which is nice, the screen can not be much bigger. But also the lack of the abilty to pick what you wish to have the focues can limit you, although it is usually not that bad, and can be delt with.
