1st canon was a T50 P&S .. AE1 .. this Elph 530HS is the most convenient and all around quality ...I always remove the battery from all cameras when not in use .. This is probably the best camera I have ever owned ...the big screen is a great feature...

Wifi not so good
I purchased this camera as a lightweight alternative to my DSLR for fun trips. I loved the idea of having wifi to post to Facebook, etc.
It took me several hours to figure out how to set it up. The Canon website is horrible. If you don't do everything in the proper sequence you have to keep registering your camera over and over. It wasn't clear whether you needed one password or two (for the Canon Imaging as well as the Canon account).
You can submit a photo to facebook, but you can't make any comments - not good.
Email photos - I haven't had time to delve into it but it appears that you have to set up the email recipients ahead of time on the web site, so you need to know who you might send a photo to before you even take it.
I haven't taken many photos yet, so will refrain from commenting on that until after my upcoming trip.
I know it's not an iPhone, but I did expect some basic features for wifi that didn't require constant set up changes on a web site to make it work.

I bought this camera as point and shoot for my dslr
One of the review(at the bottom) said there are no manual option. But there is one. If you used canon camera, word P is manual setting. It is great except the screen. Screen is not a static but pressure. It means it has films on it. Not like smart phone screen. Respond time is longer and sometimes it doesn't work. So if you want to buy this product, you should try ou the working one. Because all the functions on the phone is great and works well.
Pro: Low light, many functions and settings, manual option, easy to use.
Con: Touch screen, no multi erase, battery is short, case is made with plastic,
