I have a DSLR with a number of lens for specific purposes so when my Canon SX720 "broke", I wanted a better camera with more features. This camera is outstanding for what it can do. I haven't been able to use all the features but so far I am very satisfied. I would have liked to keep the zoom that the 720 had and it is my only issue so far. This camera will replace me lugging my DSLR around the world. This camera has the ability to capture the Northern Lights because of the ultra wide aperture F/1.8 and in P mode, it has great ISO options and a BULB option as well. There are better cameras but not at this price.
Have only had the camera for a couple of weeks but so far I like its small size and its easy to use features. The image quality is very good and the wide angle lens is excellent. I like its fast response and being able to shoot multiple frames without delay. It goes through the battery fairly quickly but the performance is great. I bought a spare battery which solves that minor problem. Overall I'm very happy with this camera.
Excellent product, compact and easy to use with a ton of custom features. I take this everywhere with me, fits in my pocket. Using it on and off the battery easily lasts all day. Transfer pics to my iPhone as needed with the Canon app. Low light performance is excellent, very happy with my purchase. Highly recommended.
