A No Go

Summary: This Christmas gift was returned due to it's inability to take any pictures at all. This was not a case of user error, since our kids have the same camera and are very familiar with it. We'll try another one, and hopefully things will go better the second time around. I generously gave it one star because I like the small size and simple instructions.
Bought as new - got a refurbished model. Terrible image quality and zoom.

Summary: 1) I bought this item on Amazon Prime as New, but the seal on the camera box inside the larger general Canon box was broken! The larger Canon box was sealed with a piece of scotch tape. And I got the wrong color! 2) About 80% of the pictures I took turned out blurry, and the zoom feature, and auto-focus, did not work as expected. I take close ups of stationary objects; zoom and autofocus are a must.
Summary: This camera was my back up for when I didn't want to lug the big camera around. It stopped working almost immediately and I lost valuable irreplaceable pictures! WORTHLESS. Bought it Feb 2013, fatal errors within two months! WASTE OF MONEY!
Summary: I thought this was going to be an easy to use camera (Point and shoot) but there is soo much to it that I can't figure it all out and have not used it hardly at all. I wish I had never bought it.
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).
