Its Great !!!!

I simply like this item. Flipkart service is awesome !!!

So far, the performance is great !! I like cannon features and in this item it can be great tool to take good pictures if the features are explored properly !!!
The camera takes good pics and auto mode works wonderfully.
It's small, comfortable to handle It can be carried in pocket!!! .
Touchscreen is not capacitive, ya it's resistive which I guess makes it little outdated but you'll get used to it but will never like it.

Wi-fi useless for India?

I think the camera is great. But the Wi-Fi features cannot be used in India. Not in the list of supported countries. I could not even get it to successfully connect to the computer locally on wi-fi. Just does not detect and the camera window software just complains that this feature is not available in your country. Checked on Canon website. Indeed india is not supported. If anyone has managed to get this working. Do tell me.

Good camera

Thanks Flipkart!!!!!!!!!!! for delivering well in advance.
The quality of pictures is good in the daylight.
Video i tried in the night but not soo good.
3.2" Touch screen is very good
Touch quality is not very impressive.
Disappointed with zoom only 5x ,in the same price range sony has very high zoom and megapixel but picture quality not known.
I haven't gone through completely with the features.I will update once i become familiar with the features.
Overall i can give 4 stars for this camera
