Battery shorting

LG "LG", Amazon
15 February 2010
  • Summary: Six months after purchase, the battery began shorting- meaning new batteries would last less than one hour in the camera. I sent it in for repairs and it worked fine for about a month or so. It began shorting again, so I returned it a second time.

Not a great camera

M. BROWN, Amazon
26 July 2009
  • Summary: we had the canon a510 before this one which was terrific, we had to send this one back back. The pictures weren't very good and took way to long to recover for next picture when using the flash.

Major Lag Time Between Pictures

Chinto, Amazon
20 April 2009
  • Summary: It takes FOREVER for the camera to take another pictuer. I bought this camera in January and am happy with the MPG but the lag time has caused me to miss a lot of great photo opportunities.

Disapointed with such a good manufacturer

G. Bleiler, Amazon
17 February 2009
  • Summary: Picture quality is good, but extremly poor battery life, very slow to recover from time taking picture to be ready to take again, foget it when using the flash up to 10 sec before it is ready to shoot again.

Canon Powershot A1000IS Digital Camera

Dave6337, Rate it all!
29 October 2008
  • Summary: I did some research and thought this would be a nice - easy to use camera for the price. I was most interested in the "easy" mode for my wife - which supposedly makes picture taking "worry free" where the camera selects the "optimal" settings automatically.

disappointed

J. Dykes, Amazon
20 October 2009
  • Summary: I bought this camera as a replacement for a Kodak C875 6mp. It pales into insignificance when compared to the Kodak. Build quality poor, photographs poor, Screen almost useless (I have to use the viewfinder because the quality is so bad).

Promising specification but disappointing in action

J. H. Davies, Amazon
25 May 2009
  • Summary: I chose this model because I wanted a compact camera with moderate zoom and an optical viewfinder. I was further attracted by the voice memo feature. The images are excellent but in every other respect it has been a major disappointment. The optical viewfinder is tiny and awkwardly placed.

Fotos blaustichtig

Ursula Schulz "sz", Amazon
9 October 2009
  • Summary: Ich habe die PowerShot A1000IS 2mal in einem sonnigen Urlaub verwendet und bin enttäuscht. Im Gegensatz zu Kameras, die ich vorher hatte, waren die Fotos blaustichig und machten trotz herrlichen Wetters einen trüben Eindruck.
