"Warranty expired--one month later won't work"

Acemdachs, CNET

  • Pros: Great camera with video and absolutely beautiful pictures. Easy to use for general use, ie I am NOT a professional but a mom taking pictures of my child. I don't have time to take a camera course in picture taking and this camera was wonderful.
  • Cons: Reviews said "eats up batteries", and it did from the beginning but now brand new batteries get 2 minutes before it shuts off saying batteries are dead. They are not dead-checked them. It is the camera. Warranty expired 1 month ago.

  • Summary: Don't waste your money on this one. The picture quality is very poor, the battery is not rechargeable, the photoediting software that comes with it doesn't have a lot of features. I am very disappointed on this purchase.

"worst battery life i've ever seen"

iwilliams77, CNET
23 October 2009
  • Pros: the idea of using standard batteries, typically good Canon controls and picture quality
  • Cons: just purchased, took with me on vacation - always a very pro-canon customer. needed new batteries after a handful of shots!!!! Spent about $25 on batteries in 3 days. Not worth it. Try rechargeables next but from what we've read, not much better.

  • Summary: picture quality is TERRIBLE ! severe noise in plain white areas, pics are badly blurred, very bad jpeg artifacts. could be the jpeg prog in this camera is compressing pics too much. pics are pale and washed out with very poor definition. very difficult to clean them up afterwards. My cheap samsung 7mp takes better pics than this. camera is easy to use, if a little slow.
  • Pros: takes standard penlight batteries and sd cards, easy to use
  • Cons: picture quality,slow to start and record to card
