JUNK!

Brandi~wife,mom of 2DD's 1DS, Amazon

  • Summary: I supposably purchased this camera brand new from amazon. NOT! My camera arrived in a new box with batteries still factory sealed and directions. What it did not arrive with was the protective film over the display panel.

Hate everything about it

Anon "Anon", Amazon

  • Summary: Terrible camera. The camera on my phone takes far better pictures. I wanted something on the cheaper end to take while I was traveling. Right out of the box, I knew this was not going to work. It takes way to long to process between the time you take a picture and the time the shutter goes off.

Intermittently good then bad

Paul H. Yancey, Amazon

  • Summary: Viewfinder is a MUST for us (saves batteries when traveling in remote areas, essential for shooting in bright sun) so we had little choice on what to buy at the time. I see a lot of 5-star and 1-star reviews. I think now I know why.

  • Summary: OK, so I bought this camera for my teenager son after reading rave reviews and doing some research. It took ok pictures the first month Then 3 months later, I notice that the pictures get slightly blurry, like a handshake.

Nice little camera with major battery problems.

  • Summary: This is a nice sized little pocket camera that has some features that are desirable such as an optical view finder and the ability to run on AA batteries. I bought it as a backup for my wife to take to England but because of the problems she had with it it never got used.

Grainy photos

  • Summary: Like some of the folks on here, I've found the photos to be grainy. I was very disappointed, since I've owned several Canon cameras in the past. I can't recommend this one...

Grainy pics

SomeMike, Amazon
13 March 2012
  • Summary: I am very disappointed in this camera. I have been a long-time Canon owner and have owned several of their point-n-shoot cameras over he years. The pics are really grainy for even a point-n-shoot. This is true even when using the flash in "auto" mode. The video quality is even worse.

Don't waste your time or money on this camera!

  • Summary: I purchased The Canon Powershot A1200 for a Christmas for this year. It was meant for an everyday carry around in my wife's purse camera, so she would have something besides her cell phone to grab a pic she wanted to capture.

Poor Photo Quality -- Amen

Reader1953 "tg51", Amazon
10 May 2011
  • Summary: My experience with this camera is similar to that of "Frontman". I have used & liked multiple Canon cameras and was excited to find one this small and with a viewfinder. I bought a black 1200 two days ago and spent the afternoon taking many pictures in many situations & modes -- results were poor...
