Excellent but fragile.

  • Summary: Takes great pictures but the lens cover tends to break and unlike my previous PowerShot it cannot be carried in my pocket. Also the software is non-intuitive.

Just okay

Kathryn Wiltse "Kathy", Amazon
6 January 2013
  • Summary: This camera is just okay. It doesn't always take clear pictures. I had an older model that worked much better. I expected more from this camera. I do love the color of it & I like the size of it. It's not horrible but not the best!

The camera takes great pictures

Vanessa Ragan, Amazon
16 December 2012
  • Summary: I really like this camera's picture quality. However, the shutter window broke after about two months, and now it won't close by itself automatically so I have to do it manually.

lens retract issue

Juli, Amazon
5 October 2012
  • Summary: I have had this camera for about 10 months. It takes great shots, even in low light. I am having a lens retract issue, which could not be resolved by phone (canon customer support). The lens is stuck in the outward position. I have not dropped the camera or spilled anything on it or damaged it in any way. Canon said to return it for repairs as it has a one year warranty. It is yet to be seen if they will repair it free.

Decent

bg_girl, Amazon
7 May 2012
  • Summary: It takes pretty decent pictures in low light and the macro is nice. The auto feature works pretty well and the different program settings are fun to play with. Nothing breath-taking though. Also, since the first week of use, the shutter has not been closing completely - one side goes down and the other stays open. It's annoying since the lens could be damaged and gets dirty.

Returned it today

Julie A. Chamberlain, Amazon
4 February 2012
  • Summary: This is a cute little camera (maybe even too little) but I felt the pictures weren't as sharp as they should be and took too long to take (hard to take of active kids). I found the video sound quality to be poor (unless you were hoping to hear the lens zooming in and out). I probably would have kept it b/c I found some tricks to get the pictures to come out sharper and take faster and I already have an HD camcorder.

Very Sleek.

Chris "~chris", Amazon
22 January 2012
  • Summary: Purchased this as a gift for Christmas. Does not include any memory card, and is not functional without said memory card. Also, it would be nice if the display was bezeled. When you set it down on the display, you definitely run the risk of scratching the glass. The HD Video option is quite nice. Will be upgrading soon though - just released is a camera with wi-fi capabilities, with direct upload to facebook/twitter/etc. SWEET!

Compared to Canon's Powershot S95

Joel Reiter, Amazon
21 January 2012
  • Summary: I chose this camera as my wife's Christmas gift. I thought she would prefer the blue version but it was not available directly from Amazon, and other sources were showing a higher price. Finally the week before Christmas Amazon listed the blue model as directly available at the same price as the other colors, but backordered. So I ordered it and assumed it would not get there in time.

Motor Noise is a deal breaker

Paul A. Gillie "Opey", Amazon
16 January 2012
  • Summary: I researched the heck out of this and did read that some were having concerns with motor noise while zooming in video mode. This is a real problem I hoped not to have since the complaint was few and far between. I read from others that origination of manufacture might be the problem. The first product I had made the noise and was made in China (according to the box). I requested replacement, which arrived timely.
