"Both have the zoom."

The zoom is incredible as well. I'm impressed with how Canon incorporated it seamlessly. I needed a High Definition Point & Shoot Digital Camera with a sensor larger than what is on my smartphone. I like that while I am learning I can rely on the IA mode to take great shots for me. The zoom and autofocus makes it easy.

Canon ELPH 180 Final Thoughts

"Zoom I am still iffy on."

It wont replace a DSLR but it comers pretty close. My old SX700 that was serviceable for years finally gave up and failed. Full manual, Shutter Priority and Aperture Priority. For me the upgrade was worth it as it had things I find extremely useful. The different features are amazing and the pics came out really great.

"Really great camera."

The stability at long zoom was fantastic. The initial charge using the Canon ELPH 180 to charge the battery took about 2 hours. While the 24-70 seems good, I can’t wait for a new Canon ELPH 180. This camera also has the best in camera JPEG processing I've ever seen. Meh, life goes on, immediately ordered more batteries off Amazon.

"Quality camera."

Overall good camera and value but needs improvements in the hardware. This camera does just what I have wanted, including zoom in video recorder mode. I needed a High Definition Point & Shoot Digital Camera with a sensor larger than what is on my smartphone. The only problem I had was with the LCD screen. This camera also has the best in camera JPEG processing I've ever seen.

No other High Definition Point & Shoot Digital Camera of this size is fast and have the quality of this HeroFiber . Overall good camera and value but needs improvements in the hardware.

"Not necessary with this."

Great deal on this camera package that includes lots of extras. Mid-afternoon typically required swapping in a charged battery. It's very easy to clean up noise in postprocessing by using noise ninja or neat image. Meh, life goes on, immediately ordered more batteries off Amazon. Not to mention it worked great as a High Definition Point & Shoot Digital Camera too.

"So, not real."

Great deal on this camera package that includes lots of extras. It’s taken its place as my go to camera, which is what I intended it for. Fast shipping and everything packaged nicely. A duck flying by very quickly skimming the water over Lake Washington. Auto works well for me once outdoors or in well lit rooms.

  • Nikon COOLPIX W150 13.2MP Waterproof Point & Shoot Digital Camera (White) 16GB Bundle
  • When you're having fun in the sun or enjoying the great outdoors, the last thing you want to worry about is keeping your camera safe. With the COOLPIX W150, you won't have to. It's built to handle the elements of even your most adventurous outings. Accidentally splashed near the pool? It's waterproof up to 10m deep. Dropped on a trail? It can withstand falls from up to 1.8m. Covered with sand at the beach? It's sealed to keep out dust and debris.
  • Heading to the pool or the beach? Capture every amazing moment, even underwater! Just select the "Shoot Under Water" setting and the COOLPIX W150 does the rest. There's even an "Underwater Face Framing" setting that automatically detects people's faces below the surface. Before you share your shots, the new Add Clarity Under Water editing function corrects overly blue hues and adds clarity to underwater images.
  • The COOLPIX W150 is designed to look great, feel great and perform great. Its gently curved body and recessed area around the lens provide a comfortable, solid grip in any hand. The large, well-positioned buttons and user-friendly interface are easily accessible for simple, intuitive operation. And the compact COOLPIX W150 is ready to go anywhere, weighing just 177 g.
