Summary: I love(d) this camera EXCEPT for its fatal flaw (google it; it's famous for this): It'll eventually get a "lens error" and the lens won't go back in, and the camera either will turn on but not take photos (what happened to my first one), or not turn on at all (what happened to my second one).
So back to my old Kodak e-z share Z812 that I bought 8 years ago and still works better than this camera

Summary: This camera is OK. I was hoping for a easier camera to use for my quick shots. Have not used this camera in months because some how there is dirt INSIDE my lenses. So back to my old Kodak e-z share Z812 that I bought 8 years ago and still works better than this camera. Never buy Canon again
Summary: My wife used this camera for about two years. The complaint she had was that you never knew if the pictures were going to be too dark. Sometimes they turned out beautifully. Other times, they were just too dark to see. She recently bought a larger camera.
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.
Summary: This is my third (and last) Canon. The first one I had was awesome, and I keep trying to find that same satisfaction with this brand. This latest camera did not take great photos. I notice they are darker, it has more trouble auto-focusing and it's just disappointing.
Summary: After reading all the reviews, I decided to get this camera for my Dad. The camera arrived on time but when I turned it on, the lens jammed and it gave me a "Lens error. Shut down" message. I retried to no avail. Some other customers complained about the same issue.
Summary: I always have inspected a purchase in person before buying online. This time I felt I didn't need to as I've always been happy with my Canon purchases. Big mistake. The buttons on this ELPH 100 HS 12 MP camera are nearly impossible to manipulate.
