Back to the OP's post - just FYI so that you know...'Powershot' is a general name for Canon's entire system of P&S cameras, rather than just one model. Sort of like how General Motors has a division called 'Chevrolet' and within that division, they make a dozen or more models of car that have the Chevrolet badge on them, all different. Sony calls their P&S line 'Cybershot'. Nikon calls their P&S line 'Coolpix', and so on. Within each of these camera lines are dozens of models ranging from cheap basic boxes to slimline pocketables to travel zooms to mini-DSLR looking superzooms to enthusiast compacts, and so on. I just wanted to explain that, both for you and to many others who ask about their cameras and might not realize that there are many models within that line. So the important part everyone needs to know about which Canon Powershot camera you got are the letter and number combination that follows the Powershot name, ie: S100, G1X, G15, etc. Then, you can get a little more help from those who are familiar with that camera as to how to get the most out of it, and whether it is a good fit for your needs!
