Sadly a nice compact camera but lacking adequate instructions on how to use it. I printed all 109 pages of the
manual...wud have been better served with a consice 20-30 page manual just pointing out the basics as opposed to marketing this camera as some sophisticated piece of equipment. Keep it simple!!!

great photos, no interface cable or directions
Great photos, lightweight & easy to use! No instruction booklet, just a very brief insert showing how to set up camera included. No interface cable included. The instructions on the Canon site show a PDF file to download of 139 pages. I am in the dark about a lot of features.
