"Extremely poor focus"

  • Pros: It's inexpensive and travels well.
  • Cons: Takes worse pictures of any point and shoot camera I've ever owned. Every picture is blurry!

Not good for my needs

  • Summary: This is good for outdoor when the sun is out. Poor image quality otherwise, especially indoors with dim lighting. The video quality is not that good either.

Dissappointing camera

Mocaldoc, Amazon
3 September 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this camera for my wife and in just a few months, it had a lens error and the lens would not come out and the camera would not function. I returned it to Canon and got a replacement under their warranty, and in less time than the first one...another lens error and a non working camera. I know Canon cameras have a bad reputation for this happening when taken to the beach, but this camera was never used outside.

Failed twice within 9 months

Dewit Yerselfer "The goal is to be fair", Amazon

  • Summary: Very disappointed. This camera has died TWICE (so far) and it's only been 9 months. The first time the camera failed it would not turn on at all. We sent it for warrenty repair and received a refurbished replacement camera THAT WAS NOT THE COLOR OF OUR ORIGINAL, Canon said we didn't have any option on which color they sent. Now, three months later and the replacement camera has just died.

Dreadful picture quality

Pirate "ThePirate", Amazon
31 July 2012
  • Summary: There must be dozens of very positive reviews on this camera - I cannot begin to understand this. In just slightly low light level conditions (i.e. like anywhere indoors, which is 90% of where people use point and shoots) all images are blurred and/or have terrible color. I say this because any other camera at the very same occasion takes *much* better pictures. Rich brown earth becomes gray. Lovely faces become a blur. Except with other cameras.

Lens error kills the Camera

PFrenchy, Amazon
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.

Not sure if I got a lemon but...

C. M. Graham "~cmgraham", Amazon
17 April 2012
  • Summary: Even though I thought I did enough research nothing but disappointed with this camera, I am returning it. I tried working with it for a couple hours but could not get good results at all. Poor color, everything is too bright & looks blown out, software doesn't actually work on Windows 7 even with their update. I can get better pictures with my iPhone. Camera came with a gouge on the bottom so I suspect it was returned before.

Worst Customer Service, Common Problem Unacknowledged By Canon, $126.95 In Warranty Repair Cost! Outrageous

kelloggshow, Amazon
10 March 2012
  • Summary: We had this camera for a little over 1 month when the zoom mechanism got stuck half open. We googled the problem to find that it is a flaw well know by users of Canon Powershot cameras and is not acknowledged by Canon as a flaw in camera design. The exact problem that occurs triggers the the Canon E18 error which happens when the lens gets stuck while trying to extend. The camera will beep a few times and the LCD will display a little E18 in the lower-left corner.

Dead after 2 months

Acticom, Bestbuy
27 February 2012
  • Summary: I have been the owner of Canon Elph cameras for the last 5 or 6 years and can testify that the quality has gone down to the unacceptible level now.
  • Cons: Broke right away
