Lighting issues

nancy wolford, Amazon
19 January 2014
  • 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.

  • Excerpt: All I need is a basic P&S. But I'd like decent image quality. I've tried/had a few and the ELPH 100 HS is attractive for its size but I've found one major drawback on the IQ front: it always selects the maximum aperture available. This means depth of field is always limited. On my Fuji F10, as an example, the camera would select a midway F stop in most situations as long as it could assure a shutter speed of 1/100 or higher.

"LENS ERROR" - after 420 pictures

P. Sosa, Amazon
11 July 2012
  • 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.

Not worth the money

K Fino "Stay Home Mom", Amazon
31 May 2012
  • 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. This is my third Canon to break since 2009. The first one I got a couple years of use out of, the second one only about a year. This one I had for 6 months, and now the lens won't shut.

  • Excerpt: This is my fourth compact .. and the cheapest ( E100 ). It seems to be an entry model and looks and feels like it. In the range ixus 40 / 50 / 75 I've owned it is still using the same battery. Build quality is quite poor compared to those. But as it is my everday backpack-cam I does allright. Image quality is decent but not spectacular. It is the kind of camera you take along in situations where you might expect it to get damaged or lost.

Got a Faulty camera - shutter jammed

Shalini Pothuru, Amazon
20 February 2012
  • 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. I thought it was a rare case but ended up with a faulty product myself. I was not happy because I was traveling 2 days later and this was a gift.

want it to be easier to use and faster to focus. pictures not great.

John Busco, Amazon
6 December 2011
  • Summary: I bought this to replace my Panasonic DMC-FX3S 6MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom (Silver) , which developed spots in the lens. This Canon model is compact and cute. The color is nice. But compared to the Panasonic model, ease of use is not as good and quality of pictures is disappointing. The main things I'm disappointed with: 1) erasing a bad picture requires too many button presses. On the Panasonic, there's one button to "trash" the picture.

buttons difficult to manipulate

Gisele, Amazon
5 September 2011
  • 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. My fingers get cramped up and I have to try a couple of times to press the buttons. And I'm not a meat cleaver handed man either, nor am I a woman with long daggers.

Small Size, Low Noise But Soft Photos, No Digital Zoom in 3:2

M. Kato "MK", Amazon
17 June 2011
  • Summary: I have the Canon PowerShot A80, A620, and SD800 IS. The photos from the SD800 IS are not as clean as the photos of the older A-model Canons with slightly larger sensors and lower megapixels, but the photos are reasonably sharp and the SD800 IS is more compact than my older A models for everyday carry.
