This camera isn't terrible.
I got it to fit easily in my pocket when I don't want to carry my SLR, but since I bought it in 2009-ish, phone cameras have really come close to the quality of this thing. To be fair though, this camera does shoot video and not just the 30 second mini clip you get on a lot of phones. --It's not HD though. I've had a lot of other cameras that lasted longer before becoming obsolete, but that is more the pace of the tech industry than Canon's fault. You could do worse that this camera, but more than likely you can do way better for less than the $200-odd-dollars I paid for this when it was new.
