Awful to set up A week later I've still not managed to link this to my computer and download photos. Connected very easily to mobile. The software wont set up properly without being connected to the PC via USB connection but for some strange reason Canon don't include this cable. Tried my micro USB leads for my phone but they don't work. Struggled setting this up and on the verge of giving up and returning it to John Lewis. Have windows 7 maybe easier with more current operating system. 28 July 2014
Very good camera but very poor wi fi. Camera arrived promptly, well packaged and exactly as described. It has a solid quality feel, is comfortable to hold and produces excellent pictures. The only downside is the awful camera window app which is so unreliable, with very poor instructions that as a result is next to useless at transferring pictures to an IPad. The app is so bad that I have resorted to buying an Apple card reader lead which unfortunately comes with Apple's exorbitant price tag. I really feel that Canon should not be specifying a feature that is clearly not fit for purpose. 14 July 2014
Very pleased! Bought this Canon after comparing and trying out the Panasonic TZ60, and the Sony HX50. First off it fells the most comfortable to hold. The Sony is quite chunky and the Panasonic doesn't have enough to grip. On spec they are all similar with a 30 times optical zoom. The menu system is intuitive and well thought out. Auto mode has taken some stunning photos, I have not tried the manuals settings yet. The WIFI was easy to connect to my ipad and has enabled me to take remotely controlled pictures of garden birds using zoom and shutter control. So far very pleased with my choice and the quality of the photos taken. I can recommend the Tamrac Digital 7 case for the slimmest fit with a pocket for a spare SD card. 13 June 2014
