Worked good while it lasted

  • Summary: Unfortunately, after only 1 1/2 years this camera stopped focusing correctly. All regular views and especially zoomed photos are all out of focus although the camera acts like it is focusing. To get it repaired would have cost more than the original price or for a newer, better camera.

  • Excerpt: My husband bought this for me because I love taking pictures, and my old camera was going down hill at a rapid speed. The good things are that it is small, and handy in a pinch i guess the colors that it comes in are nice, but a lot of the time the pictures come out blurry. The battery is also another issue that I don't like .It really does not last very long at all.I also think that for the quality of picture that you get from this camera that the price is way to high.I...

Canon has truly disappointed me on this one!

  • Excerpt: It makes me very upset to write this bad review on a product that is produced by a company that is know for their quality and value.  I was given the Canon - PowerShot A3100 IS Digital Camera as a Christmas gift last year.  I was very excited to actually have a digital camera that wasn't part of my phone.  The color was very attractive.  The size was perfect to slip into my pocket, pocket book or fanny pack.

not what i was looking for

  • Summary: I have a very old EasyShare DX6490 Zoom and a point and shoot Fuji that I got at work for free. I was looking for something in the middle-something small w/ good photo quality and quick shutter speed. Consumer reports rated this camera as good and Canon has a good name so I decided to buy. I used the camera inside and outside and was not impressed with the inside photos. I took photos of my husband, the dog, books on the book shelf and so on.

  • Excerpt: I got this last year on the big black Friday sales. It was a low price which made it affordable. It took ok quality of pictures not fantastic. It was easy and simple to load the pictures to the computer. I ended up replacing it this year already so I would recommend it if you are in a pinch and need something to get you through but other wise it is a pass. Reviewer received a sample of this product.

Great design with inferior performance and/or defective detector array

  • Summary: This camera promised superior resolution, more flexible photography, and easier handling. It met two of the three but failed in the most important aspect - resolution and image quality. With 9.1 MPs the A3100IS should produce superior images (monitor) and photos compared with my two older cameras with fewer pixels and no image stabilization.

  • Excerpt: Worked fine for a year and then wouldn't turn on or off with brand new batteries. Great magnification ability! Only lasted a year before we had issues - glad we bought the warranty. Takes AAA batteries and goes through regular batteries in a couple of pics but goes through camera specific type of batteries way too soon as well.

  • Conclusion: К сожалению, должна сказать, что покупкой я разочарована. Даже дизайн и тот проигрывает - если сравнить с другими, то камера очень большая и тяжелая. Колесико настройки ввевху справа выглядит устаревшим и мешает общей картине. Но, должна признать, что в обслуживании она проста и качество снимков более ...
  • Pros: проста в обслуживании, хорошее качество снимков
  • Cons: устаревшая модель
