I normally keep the camera in the glove compartment as backup I don't really like using it. I purchased it as I have access to canon camera equipment as a canon dealer and got it mainly for video and not for stills. It has great video.

Actually after this week I have warmed just a tiny bit to it.

What I can get used to though is no view finder. I use the camera close to my eye and move my body towards the subject. One can look over the camera like a gun sight and still have peripheral vision and move the camera quickly to your eye when you need it. When it’s in front of your face you have to concentrate on the screen which often obscures the subject. I Find I lose contact with other things around me and have on occasion landed on my backside.
