What’s not to love?
It is smaller and weighs next to nothing which means the battery is small. The battery power between charges is low. It gives you only 180 shots between charges. The camera is also slim which means the buttons are flat, small and cumbersome for people with large fingers. Canon also replaced the knob that was used to change shooting modes with a button at the top of the control pad. Since this sits with other buttons, it becomes easy to click accidentally. The battery and SD card compartment located underneath the camera does not have a locking mechanism which means it slides out too easily. You might lose these if you do not keep your camera in a bag. Seasoned Canon users will miss the My Color option found in previous Canon models. This allowed users to adjust things like sharpness, contrast or saturation. Instead, this Canon digital camera has a Live View Control mode, which allows the user to adjust things like brightness, color or tone.
Overall, this is easy to use camera which you can just slip in your pocket to take anywhere to create youtube vlogging videos. It might take super clear HD videos, also the 720p you get will be enough for a vlogger who is looking for the best way to make those short video vlogs.
