It's the on off button

Richard L. Bjornseth "Dick Bjornseth", Amazon
27 December 2008
  • Summary: While I have read of some people's problems with the unusual shape of the on-off button, that wasn't my problem. After 2 or three shots and struggling to get the button to work, it just didn't. The images I were able with the camera were amazingly good - good color balance and detail. But the flimsy on off-switch? Amazon was great and accepted the return no questions asked. Even paid for the postage.

Two significant problems with an otherwise nice camera!

D. Medford, Amazon
12 July 2008
  • Summary: This is the 5th Canon I've owned. I generally love their overall quality and function. I agree with most of the rave reviews about this camera, but I have TWO IMPORTANT CAVEATS that don't seem to appear. 1st: The orientation of the LCD polarization on the screen is such that when using the camera with polarized sunglasses, you can't see an image on the LCD (in the standard, horizontal position).

Good camera, but...

Optimist? "CM", Amazon
11 July 2008
  • Summary: beware if you are purchasing this camera because of all of the special features, such as the zoom or digital macro. I took this camera on vacation & discovered that there are some pretty strict limitations on the functionality of these features. Such as, in digital macro you must practically place the lens on what you are photographing to have it in focus...but then the item does not fit the frame properly, and is partly cut off in the final image.

  • Excerpt: 800からの買い換えで一時期使いましたが、なじめずに妹にあげてしまいました。 ワンポイントカラーが気に入っていたのですが…。 800、820はなぜか自分の感性と合わずにでした。 なぜでしょうね〜…?

IXY DIGITAL 820 IS

5 September 2009
  • Excerpt: 6月末IXY600からの買い替えです。 良い点 1. 手ぶれ補正が思ったより強力。室内でフラッシュなしでもOK。 2. デザインも丸みがあって、ホールド性も良い。 3. 色彩はCanonらしく好みの色彩。 4. 再生ボタンを押せば電源が入り便利。 悪い点 1. 解像度が悪い。1/2.5CCDかレンズ性能か判らないが期待はずれ。 2. 色合いは良いが、ラチチュード、グラディエーションともに狭く 1/2.5CCDの限界を感じる。以前使っていたPowerShotS30のほうが良い。 3. 顔認識も期待はずれ。露出不足が多い。デイライトシンクロが必要。 要望 1. ツアイスに負けない高解像度レンズの開発。 2.

Handhabung gewöhnungsbedürftig - Bildqualität gut

Leona, Amazon
5 July 2009
  • Summary: Die Handhabung ist tatsächlich sehr gewöhnungsbedürftig. Der An/Aus-Knopf und das Drehrad für die Einstellung der verschiedenen Aufnahme-Möglichkeiten (Portrait/Nachtschnapschuss/usw.) sind nicht besonders handlich, besonders wenn man von den IXUS Vorgängermodellen Besseres gewöhnt ist. Wenn man es dann aber geschafft hat, im richtigen Moment den richtigen Modus eingestellt zu haben, dann ist an der Bildqualität auch nichts zu meckern.

Compattina discreta

3civettesulcomo, Ciao
14 August 2008
  • Summary: Come tutte le compatte Canon, è di ottima fattura, ma questo non vuol dire che sia una fotocamera perfetta. i 10 mpixel, sono troppi per un ottica cosi' piccola, e con iso elevati, da 400 in su, le foto appaiono "di cartone" con un rumore deciso e molto visibile. Scordatevi quindi di fare foto all'interno senza il flash. Ottime le foto invece in esterni, cosi' come i filmati.
  • Pros: Belle foto in esterno
  • Cons: Troppo rumore con iso sopra i 100 - 200 , tasti funzione microscopici .
