Great Camera This is a replacement for my previous Canon that was broken. I was so pleased with it, I bought virtually the same one. This camera has a lot less programmes than other makes that I've had which makes it easier and quicker to use. Set up was very quick and easy but I doubt I'll ever use the wireless option, the SD card is so very easy and both computer and printer have slots. This camera is so simple, switch on, zoom or not, take photo, the camera works out all the other bits and 99/100 takes a great shot. 18 December 2013
