Welcome to Gaia! ::

So I wanna get a camera...mainly for vlogging on the go and for relatively little money.
I was thinking of going charle trippy style and get a powershot but wanted some reviews.

Any one have one? Is it good? THAAAANKS

I have a PowerShot SD1300 IS. Yes, it does very well for a pocket camera. I'd recommend it. Consumer Reports rated it highly when it was new.

A pocket camera is all about taking good pics quickly, with no inconvenience. For that, the emphasis is on light weight, automatic everything, quick zoom control, and quick power-on. It does those.

No, the pictures it takes aren't as good as my wife's professional SLR. It has a good lens for a pocket camera, better than most pocket cameras, but no pocket camera can touch a professional SLR.

Auto focus does a decent job identifying faces. You'll never miss manual focus mode.

The only things I really do manually is adding fill-in flash when I need it, or turning off flash when I don't want it (such as sporting events that prohibit flash photography). Both of those are easy to do when desired.
