Just an Expensive Disposable Camera with horrible customer service from the seller...and worse customer service from AMAZON

Scott Muehlbauer, Amazon
9 August 2010
  • Summary: first, i have to say...i do love canon cameras. maybe a little too much...because after a year or so you inevitably get the "lens error" warning that renders the camera absolutely useless. i guess i have accepted this--being pleased with the year of photos that it delivered to me. however, my last purchase put me over the edge. i got the "lens error" warning after less than a week. i was able to remove the battery, recharge it, and the lens went back in..

Beware the Fatal Lens Error Manufacturer Defect

Jackson, Amazon
21 September 2008
  • Summary: Had only owned this camera for six weeks when it stopped working. The camera was not dropped and had been handled carefully. When powered on, the LCD displayed "Lens Error" and the camera never worked again. I loved the camera but will not replace it with another Canon as there seems to be an across the board manufacturer defect with Canon products at this time.

Unreliable

JSS, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this camera as a Christmas present for my wife 2 years ago. She is not a particularly keen photographer but this camera appeared very compact, smart and relatively easy to use. As a photographer myself I thought that it ticked all the boxes. She hardly used the thing until she decided to take it on a recent holiday and was quite looking forward to taking some interesting pictures.

Poor quality

Paul, Amazon

  • Summary: I have had three Canon Digital cameras over two years & after a few months all of them developed lens problems. The problem starts with a sound as though something has come loose inside, then the picture goes to sepia on screen with massive lag between shots. I really wouldn't advise the Ixus.

Lens Error

Vast "vast", Amazon
25 June 2009
  • Summary: I would not recommend buying a Cannon Ixus, after just over a year mine failed with a lens error, after searching online I found this is a known fault with the cannon Ixus line. I contacted cannon and they refused to repair it unless I paid a large amount. How unusual that so many people report the lens error that makes the camera unusable just after a year.

no se muy bien

mugi, Ciao
24 October 2008
  • Summary: Esta bien para lo que realmente cuesta, es importante tener en cuenta que es una camara compacta. La verdad es que si se compara con otras cámaras (compactas no de bolsillo, SLR) siempre encontraremos desventajas, pero en el estrato de cámaras de bolsillo con sus 8 MP, estabilizador óptico de imagen, gran angular (28 mm), zoom óptico 3,8x, 150 g. y algunas curiosidades (detector de rostros, modo panorámico, ajuste semi manual) claramente tiene prestaciones destacables.
  • Pros: pocas
  • Cons: todos

Beau extérieurement , moche intérieurement .

cloclostar, Ciao
15 October 2008
  • Summary: Canon m'as déçue . Mise à part le prix pas trop excessif et le design pas trop mal , cet appareil photo est tout simplement ridicule . Premièrement la qualité des photos .... Nulle .C'est presque comme pour les portables ! Quand on essaie de zoomer on peut apercevoir de jolis petits carrés qui se forment sur l'appareil , la couleur change aussi... Le zoom n'est pas digne de ce nom , il éloigne au lieu de rapprocher .
  • Pros: Prix , design  .
  • Cons: Travail de la part des spécialistes vite baclé  .  Beaucoup d'inconvénients  .

Nicht empfehlenswert!

Stubu, Amazon
1 October 2008
  • Summary: Ich habe mir diese Ixus geholt, da meine Ixus70 durch einen Wasserschaden zerstört wurde. Landschaftsbilder sind OK. Bei Bildern mit parallelen Kanten, sind deutliche Tonnenverzerrungen zu sehen. Ein Foto von einem Bild ist absolut nicht ansehbar. Aufgrund diesers Fehlers wurde das Objektiv getauscht. Ergebnis: Fehler immer noch vorhanden. Angeblich braucht man da eine Profikamera!!
