KEEP OUT - a FILM camera would be a better choice :)
1

The camera will take decent pictures if you wait for it to:
1. Raise flash
2. Subject stops moving
3. Get in focus
Since in reality that 97% of photos are not taken this way, this camera has fundamental issues. I'm kind-of embarrassed because I bought this for my son for Christmas, and now I have to return/exchange it
Do not buy this camera. I'm a die hard Canon fan, and this is my fifth Canon purchase, and definitely the worst camera I have seen in a long time.

Problems:

This camera takes bad photos and non-HD-like videos.
Blurry photos are the norm, and blurry ones are the default.

Canon PowerShot SX160 IS
