"Mostly point and shoot."

The image I've shared was taken from over 15 feet away with just the optical zoom. Lastly, the complaints about battery life are totally valid. Great deal on this camera package that includes lots of extras. Mid-afternoon typically required swapping in a charged battery. Overall good camera and value but needs improvements in the hardware.

"It's range is awesome."

The initial charge using the Canon Elph 180 to charge the battery took about 2 hours. Light, portable and equipped with a good sensor. She squeals in excitement every time I open Snapchat and let her take pictures with me. While the 24-70 seems good, I can’t wait for a new Canon Elph 180. 5 seconds to wait for auto focus is not going to kill me.
