Average IXUS

There are many reviews which I don't want to repeat.
(a) The battery life is disappointing. Maybe it improves over a period of time.
(b) I am not a professional, still I felt the image quality is not outstanding. My age old 5 Megapixel Powershot also provides the same image quality. I tried all the settings, but could not better it.

Great Buy!

Although, I have not purchased it on Flipkart, I am very happy with the results of the photos being taken.

Perfect investment if one wants to upgrade to an DSLR later.

This also happens to be my very first Digital Camera apart from my Smartphone.
