  • To my surprise it was completely unharmed except for a few scratches on the casing…
  • The lens was very smeary! And then packaging was awful box was broke and not sealed! Other than that the camera is very good…
    Jane (Amazon.co.uk) - December 2013
  • Why on earth have Canon discontinued production? They were on to a sure fire winner here…
  • The seller told me if the packaging is damaged…
  • Comfortable to wear and solid battery life…
    SR (Amazon.co.uk) - September 2013
  • Then it's not exactly tough to do…
  • In spite of it's small proportions it's quite comfortable to hold, with a rubberised hand grip and good build quality give the feeling of a well built camera…
