Summary: I purchased this camera knowing it was on the inexpensive side but not wanting to spend a lot of money being that I like to take it on my many adventures. Not only does the lense not want to open and close properl, but the color of my photos are very blah on "auto" and very "fake" on vivid color. Wishing I could send it back but didn't keep the box.
Summary: I purchased this camera to replace my 10 year old 3Mega pixel Fuji camera.This Canon camera has by far 1/10 of picture quality and detail, and the colors are always off.... either too yellow, or too blue... I called canon, and they said this is how the camera is!!!! Yes, they admit the 10 year old Fuji takes better pictures at 3 mega pixel compare to this much higher quality camera. Thumbs down to Canon....
Summary: we had to throw away our old Canon camera because the pictures had too much red. Portraits were downright satanic. There's no fix for this problem. Reviews of this camera emphasized picture clarity, but I'm already seeing hints of the flat red coloring in some faces. also the viewfinder is horrible. Nearly impossible to see what's in the picture.
Summary: I am an intermediate photographer and am pretty knowledgeable about cameras and their different settings. My wife and I ordered this camera for our daughter for Christmas, we got it on a lightning deal for a decent price. I believe it was $69.99 (normally $129.99). After taking the camera for a test drive, I learned that the image quality of the photos from this camera even in perfect lighting and settings (I set up my lights and backdrops, the whole nine yards).
so-so camera, not all that impressed, soft focus, defective?

Summary: I was hoping for better pics with this camera, images are soft, not sharp focus. Video quality is quite good. Menus & options are clunky and not logical. I'd send it back, but I'm tired of shopping. Took 12 days to get this camera, package weighed 1 lb, was sent slowest method possible by UPS. why not send Priority mail USPS???? Save yourself the time & trouble & wait, go to Walmart for about the same price for point & shoot cameras.
don't go off the reviews to make a purchase-RETURNED CAMERA AFTER FIRST TIME USING IT!!!!!

Summary: Picture quality doesn't look like 16MP rather than 14MP. The camera has problems focusing as the screen becomes all fuzzy and blurry. Besides that, the flash takes a lot of time to get ready to fire the first time so if the camera is off and you want to take a picture, be sure to turn on the camera some time before that, which in most cases isn't possible so you'll lose your shot.
