Summary: This camera fits the expression "You get what you pay for." Seems it's always giving me the symbol to use a tripod to avoid blurring. In fact, too many pictures do come out blurry, especially if I use the zoom, which doesn't provide much enlargement. Also, things always seem farther away than they are. Eventually, I may invest in a better digital camera, more like the far superior 35mm camera I still own.

Pros: I chose it because of the optical viewer and standard AA batteries. Works well, optical viewer is nice, though I used it less than I anticipated. Automatic exposure works well.
Cons: Failure of lens moving renders camera unusable after 29 months of normal use. I never dropped it and was careful with it. Battery compartment is somewhat clumsy to open. Macro option not always sharp.
Summary: Generally good point-and-shoot camera, but the flash is next to worthless. The best things about it are that it has an optical viewfinder and it uses AA batteries--no need to cart along a charger and converter, plug adapter, etc.
Summary: I've only had this camera for a week. My first pictures came out reddish using the "Auto" mode so I better learn how to set the camera up manually. I had to print out the guide which is 181 pages! Also the movies extension is .MOV. It will only play back pics and video through a PC and not through my HDTV or bluray player. I wonder if most of these newer cameras are the same which makes me upset!
Summary: I purchased this camera because it was 12mp, had HD Video and it was in a great price range. I also chose canon brand because I've had a Canon camera for about 5 years now and it still works great. It's a 5mp Canon, so of course i was looking to upgrade finally, I mean it's 2012 time to move on. Anyway I thought i'd stick with the Canon brand since I had good experience with it. This camera seemed perfect at the time for the reasons I listed above.
Summary: AFTER BEING PLEASED WITH FIRST TRIAL PHOTOS. AT VERY NEXT OUTING DISPLAY SHOWED GARBLED IMAGES, WHICH ALSO PRINTED THAT WAY. WHATEVER IT WAS IT HAS PASSED AND CAMERA SEEMS GOOD AGAIN. I HAVE CONTACTED CANON WITH SAMPLE OF THE GLITCH.
Summary: I received this camera for Christmas. I love taking pictures of trees with it. Recently I have been trying to photograph birds in my yard. There have been some amazing birds in my yard of late and I have taken lots of pictures using many of the camera's options. I have yet to get any nice, clear photos, which is very frustrating because I have pictures of rare birds and the pictures are fuzzy. I have tried upping the pixels to 1600. I have tried zooming and not zooming.
Summary: I'm not a photographer, so I can't comment much on quality, but this camera just feels frustratingly sluggish. It is slow to turn on & be ready to shoot, slow to focus & slow between shots, especially if you're using the flash, then it's REALLY slow, don't plan to take more than one shot every 10 seconds...
Summary: I thought that this camera looked like it was going to be a great camera but ended up being just alright. It can take ok pictures, but not near HD quality as it claims to be able to record in. If you want a cheaper camera this is a good one to buy, but I want higher quality pictures and this camera can not provide them.
Horribly grainy photos, takes decent videos though

Summary: I couldn't be more disappointed in the quality of the photos this camera takes at a short distance, and it also appears to be nearly impossible to take even a halfway decent macro shot with it. Medium- to long-distance photos turn out quite nice, and the video quality is not too bad either. Battery life is pretty poor as well, in my experience, but that can be mitigated somewhat by always having rechargeable batteries charged and ready to go.
