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.
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.
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.
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.
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

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.
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.
