Worked very well for about 4 years....

  • Summary: I bought this camera for my wife for Christmas in 2010. It lasted about 4 years before it started taking blurry pictures and we could not figure out how to fix it. My wife carried it in her person at all times, so it is quite possible it was overly abused. Took pretty good pictures before it died.

Pretty good, but not durable

  • Summary: This was a nice camera, but it only lasted about a year before it broke. Not at all durable. If you have kids, get something else. Otherwise this was pretty good.

Auto settings horrible!

  • Summary: I loved my previous version of this camera, but the auto settings are horrible. About 50% of the photos are either out of focus or grainy like a 2 MP camera.

  • Summary: I've owned a few Canon powershot cameras over the years, and in general I have been very happy with them (obviously if I keep buying them). But this particular model has a few flaws that have really disappointed me since I purchased the camera in Oct. 2009. 1.

  • Excerpt: I've bought this camera to replace my Ixus 40 which I always carry; I also have a 40D for the more serious work. My blind faith in the Canon brand is really being tested. I've always propagated how good Canon sensors were in dark circumstances, but this camera clearly is not.

  • Excerpt: While vacationing in the Dominican Republic, my wife went swimming with her SD870. Nevertheless, the camera was destroyed by the salt water. So, the next day in the US Virgin Islands, I had to buy her a new camera. I didn't want to spend a lot of money, so thought I would get this one.

Over priced, low quality images

Sam Hod, Amazon
24 October 2009
  • Summary: When taking pictures in bright light the quality is fine. However, when taking in low light (see an typical lamp lit room at night to anything darker) the quality of the image degrades significantly. There is a VERY noticeable grainy and blurry quality to the picture.

Not as svelte as the 1100 IS

  • Summary: This model replaces the 1100 IS camera, an excellent camera. This camera is not as thin, and the focusing mechanism is noisy. In my opinion the pictures are not as sharp as the 1100 IS.

Didn't give me the big WOW factor I wanted or expected.

Jennifer, Amazon
17 September 2009
  • Summary: After four years of using the heck out of (and LOVING) my SD600, the two batteries no longer hold charges well, so it was either $80 for two new Canon batteries (I know I can get off brands but I don't think they last as long), I decided to spend the bucks on the new Canon SD1200.

  • Summary: Just got this cam yesterday and I had high hopes. Unfortunately, I think that I may end up returning this camera. PROS: *yes, it is very small and attractive *seems well constructed *good price ($150) for supposed "CANON QUALITY" *charger is compact and nicely designed CONS: *terrible low light...
