It is a very easy to use camera that employs point-and-shoot simplicity, without the need to worry about exposure and white balance. The Canon developed exclusive FlexiZone lets you align the focus on your subject even if they are not in the center of the frame, while the automatic mode will self adjust to the shooting conditions. There are also several shooting modes including sports for high speed action, spotlight for plays and recitals, portrait for posed shots and sand & snow mode for outdoor shooting against bright backgrounds. For a bit of creative flair, there are several digital effects that can be used during recording, such as Art, Black and White, Sepia, Negative, Mirror, Mosaic, 16:9 and Cinema at the touch of a button. There is also an onboard light so it is ready for almost any shooting condition.
