POOR. Shutter problems after just 1 week. Amazon....

Summary: This Powershot is notorious for having a faulty lens/shutter opening ( it gets stuck). My previous Canon Powershot Elph had broken lens/shutter opening. It would stick EVERY time the camera was turned on... For EVERY SINGLE photo. So, I reordered a new Canon Elph from Amazon.
Canon quality not what it used to be: lens cover stuck 1 month past warranty

Summary: This is my last Canon purchase. I'd had their SD20 digital camera since 2005, and it STILL works great. I wanted a pocket camera that would do better in low light, and after a pile of research, chose the Powershot Elph 500.
Summary: Bought the camera about 15 months ago. Used it sparingly maybe once a month. Last Month kept getting lens errors when turning it on. This month it will not get out of a state of lens error so camera is now a paper weight. What a waste and out of warranty coverage but camera barely used.
Summary: Used this camera to take around 50 pictures around Christmas. Almost every picture is blurry and/or washed out. Could take two pictures in the exact same area with the exact same camera settings and they would turn out completely different.
Excerpt: Bought the Canon ELPH 500 HS because the specs promised everything I needed for a small pocket-sized compact. It all worked very well untill I analyzed the image quality. The fine quality on the highest level (L) setting should result in file sizes of about 3.084 Mb according to the users manual...
Excerpt: I´ve tested the 310 for some days. It was a disapointment at all. It looks promising on paper but fails in practice. Finish: Is ok, but nothing special. My TZ10 feels more solid. Screen: Looks good and clear, touch operation is ok, if you get used into it.
Summary: I am a huge fan of Canon cameras and no toehr make will ever do for me. So when I was replacing my second Ixus as it was rather old, I immediately choose this one as it had good reviews. True, it had only been out about a week but I wanted it!
Summary: Generally this camera is a pretty decent piece of kit and has a nice style to it. It has many good features and performs well in low light levels, which is just as well considering what it can't do.
Summary: I've owned a Canon Ixus 95 IS for more than a year now. It takes beautiful pictures and I like it very much. When my mom asked me to find a camera for her I immediately looked for a new Canon and the IXUS 310 HS seemed like a good deal with good reviews, so I ordered it.
