"Smoking Hot Camera, Literally"
2 October 2009
Pros: Easy to use, great in all different types of lighting, battery life is long.
Cons: The flash began smoking with each picture. Canon sent my camera back w/o fixing the problem. I will never buy a Canon again due to poor customer service. Google Canon + Smoking and read about others having the same issue with their models.
Summary: I owned 3 canon cameras previously, and they were all great. But this camera took super blur pictures. The difference was obvious. Even at day time, I can't move a bit to take clean pictures. I called the manufacture, but they told me to just play with it, and learn how to use it... if I have to tweak the setting so much to get non-blur pictures, there gotta be something wrong with it. Never had this bad experience with canon cameras before.
Pros: Comfortable Controls, Easy Setup, Easy To Use
Excerpt: The canon camera is great, except that you need to use Canon''s crappy PC/Mac software to download images if you want to use the USB connection - does not appear as a mass storage device on your desktop! And you cannot download more than 1000 images. This alone is enough to skip this model and get something that does not require a memory card reader or With Canon You Just Can''t -crappy software.
Cons: PC/Mac software - USB connectivity: does not appear as mass storage device on your desktop
