Lens error kills the Camera
23 July 2012
Summary: As it has been well documented by other reviewers, this camera has a major manufacturing flaw. I first bought one for my daughter and it has worked well. But when my wife bought me the same model 3 months later, it worked all of 3 days before the fatal Lens error message. The camera won't open, the lens won't move and it is dead, not even able to view pictures. Happy I could at least remove the SD card and save the 30 pictures from it.
Summary: I have to give this review a 5 star but it deserve a 100 stars. I bought one for myself and after I saw how awesome of quality it was I had to buy 3 more for family. PROs: 1.The Colors are so vivid and brilliant. 2.In auto mode the advanced ELPH processor determines the best setting for the scene and brings out colors and lighting I didn't notice in person. 3. Light and slim with ample zoom for a pocket camera. 4.
Summary: The camera is incredible at this price. Pictures and videos are very good. I bought it for a vacation trip and took about 420 pictures and some videos until the lens got stock in the open position. The message "Lens Error" was displayed on the screen. I was unable to do anything. The lens was jammed and nothing made it return to normal operation. Please note that the camera had not suffered any harsh treatment only the normal on/off operation.
Summary: This little camera was very affordable, has a lot of fun features I wasn't expecting (try the miniaturization and fisheye ones!) and was perfect in a pinch. My husband has a very nice, very unwieldy camera. I just wanted a camera to take pictures of scenery and friends while on vacation. Couldn't have asked for better. Thanks, Canon for creating such great products!
tears to cheers - ELPH survives a dip in the pool!

Summary: Got this for a girlfriend just before taking a vacation in Jamaica. It works wonderfully (well-designed and engineered, rapid turnaround time, nice zoom stabilization, good color reproduction, good flash, convenient battery charger), and fits nicely in a small case I also got here at Amazon.
Summary: Battery is good for one trip. It recognizes the scene automatically (sunset,shade,flash etc...). Photo quality is fantastic (I compared most of the top brand's photo quality, no doubt... Canon gives the best photo quality. This is true for this model too).
Summary: Purchased one of these for my company, I enjoyed it so much... I got one for myself! The screen is large and clear. It's quick to save photos so I don't waste time in between pictures. It is now my primary point-and-shoot camera for when I don't want to whip out the SLR.
