Summary: I bought this camera because I am on a budget and the price was right. I had to replace my Lumix, which I loved but this got good ratings and was a better price. I have not gotten a good picture of my 2 year old son with it yet and it has been a year. Every single one has closed eyes or is blurry.
Summary: This is by far one of the worst purchases I've ever made. The lense is defective, it won't work, and I am out two hundred bucks. Busy with work, I made the horrid mistake of not trying this product out right when it arrived. When I finally did try it out, it would not work.
Summary: Took good pictures, nice zoom lens, but start up time and time to auto focus were extremely long. Dropped it just one time-from a coffee table to the carpeted floor-and the view screen cracked and became unusable. SquareTrade said it was not fixable, and paid me the value of the policy.
Summary: Most reviews sounded good, but the ELPH 510 specimen that I received took really bad pictures. There was a "pale spot" in the middle of each picture (i.e., really low contrast, just in that spot). Also, the pictures were generally blurry and did not have good coloring.
Summary: I purchased this camera in March.In May appproximately one-third of the time the camera refused to focus when I attempted to take a picture. After turning it off and on a number of times, it would eventually focus. The Canon support center had me restore the camera to factory de-fault settings.
Summary: I have used this camera on occasions for a while now. It is difficult to view in the small screen plus pre taking the photo the image you see is quite fuzzy and not as easy to focus as other camera's. I found it slow and laborious and not a good purchase.
