Summary: I have three of these models that didn't even last for 6 months, one lasted three weeks. There is an issue with the lens retracting system. I contacted Canon with no results. Don't waste your money.
Summary: I had to return it - images of pictures taken have yellow shadows, almost no color, & are fuzzy; even after restoring to default setting. Costed me $7.78 in postage to return it to Go4Computers in Miami.
Summary: Oh my oh my... this camera!!! I got my first one right around Christmas time. I liked it... it was great. It took good photos, was compact, easy to use... all was fine until about 2 weeks after I got it. It came up with a "lens error" and would make this awful clicking noise and then shut off. I thought it was a fluke, so I returned it and got another. About a month after that, the SAME problem.
Summary: I have Nikon D40 DSLR. I figured I should have something compact for trips and such. It produces the lowest quality pictures I ever saw, especialy in low lighting. Stay away from this camera !!!
Very unsatisfied--From a digital camera owner of many models
3 July 2012
Summary: As a digital camera owner of many different models, owned several models from Canon(A series, S series and dSLR), nikon and fuji, too, this Canon A2200 is very disappointing. It's very hard to focus in low light conditions and even harder when making a video in low light. And the sound is very bad when making a video, very muffy and not consistent.
Summary: My 3-year old Canon Ixus 80IS finally died late last year (after dropping it on the floor many times) and I was hunting for a good deal on cameras. This model came on sale at Target in November for $80 plus a $10 gift card. I was happy when I took it out of the box... the red color was a nice touch. However, my heart sank as soon as I started taking pictures.
Summary: This is my third Canon camera. The first 8 years ago worked really well until someone dropped it. The replacement was a complete lemon. The fully charged batteries would always show as low and the camera would shut off, and now this one makes a clicking noise everytime I turn it on. I got another lemon from Canon. that's two out of three. I think this company is really taking it's customers for granted and going downhill fast. This will be my last Canon.
