Summary: DIS-A-PPOINT-ED! I received the ELPH 100HS camera as a gift, and it has had multiple lens issues. The product may have nice features... if the camera will turn on. The lens comes out, and stays out; never to be retracted. Whenever the camera is turned on, it just turns off.
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.
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.

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.

Summary: Simply put.Cannon makes a pretty good camera but doesn't stand behind their products.Soon after we bought a Canon Powershot it broke.There was a problem with the lens.It was sent to a company that Canon subcontracts to repair their cameras.We were told that the warranty "doesnt cover lenses" and it...
Summary: I received this camera as a gift at Christmas and was quite happy though mid-March. First, a spot appeared on images that appears to be due to a speck internally on the lens. Then the lens cover mechanism popped off and now refuses to close properly and the outermost ring (held on only by tape) is...
Worst Customer Service, Common Problem Unacknowledged By Canon, $126.95 In Warranty Repair Cost! Outrageous
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.
