The CMOS sensor in this thing leaves such vivid and consistent colour quality in my photos that it handedly beats some older cameras and some camera phones by miles. Just set it to automatic ISO, pick the right white balance, and it'll do a wonderful job. Its focusing is reponsive and can take 6 shots a second. It'll handle most low light conditions up to 1600ISO, and if you still need something stronger, the CMOS sensor will let you manually reach a whopping 6400 ISO. It manages 1280p HD video recording AND zooms 10x in such a small package being only half an inch thick, with autofocus during video zooming. I admit the buttons are flush with the body and a little unintuitive to touch and press, but that's about it; this is a very complete package for the price. If you're willing to pass up the megazoom and shooting modes of the Canon SX series of cameras, this camera makes a proud addition to the ELPH family and by no doubt should be on your watch list.
