Image Quality and Shutter Speed is lacking

T. Weber, Amazon
25 December 2013
  • Summary: I have owned this camera for a year now. While I have been very impressed with the image quality in full sun, the image quality in low-light settings is not very good. The images are often grainy, or the camera does not focus well and images do not have sharp clear edges. We have children, and have been very disappointed in the images we take of them. Though kids do move a lot, our previous canon took great pictures even though the time between pictures lagged.

Poor quality

DAnie118, Amazon
15 December 2013
  • Summary: The quality is inconsistent-I should have returned it. In the beginning I thought I just needed to become more familiar with the camera but the quality never improved. I have friends with the same camera and whenever they looked at my camera they weren't sure why mine didn't work.

User Review

Anonymous, Canon

  • Conclusion: I have had this camera for less than a year and have had it break twice already. The first time the lens wouldn't come out and the second time it wouldn't flash or use any lighting at all so every picture turned out really dark. When the camera was working, it took good pictures and was nice to carry around. It had some good features too. But if it breaks, then they are useless.

Not worth the money

Calimamjam "Hip Auntie", Amazon

  • Summary: I'm so sad because this item has not held up well. The shutters stick and it doesn't focus well any longer. I've had it for less that a full year and was told not to bother getting it fixed. It makes more sense to get a new one. I'm looking into Cannon's recycling program for this.

Disappointed with Image Quality :-(

ivang3 "ivan", Amazon
19 November 2013
  • Summary: I'm always picky about image quality. This camera is nice and small, but I'm disappointed with it's image quality so I'm now selling and trying to get some money back. I had to revive colors quite a bit with Photoshop. Also, the images were not very sharp. I would go to dpreview.com and find some better cameras for slightly more $. It would be worth it. I originally paid $120 at the beginning of the year.

Lens is stuck and wont open after 9 months

RA "RA", Amazon
15 September 2013
  • Summary: I have been pleased with this camera--good pictures, easy to use--but it has broken after 9 months of use. The lens is stuck in the "closed" position, so when you turn on the camera, it tries to open the lens and then says "error" and shuts down. We haven't dropped it or anything. I have put it in my purse and maybe it got jostled, but you would expect it to tolerate that.

This camera had Error 32 message from the start

gary c gibson, Amazon
10 September 2013
  • Summary: Error 32 messages are common. They mean something is wrong with the camera's lens housing I believe. It turns off the camera automatically after about 60 seconds. So one can take 3 or 4 quick photos or a brief video and then it shuts down. There was something wrong with the lens protection system when the camera is off from the start. There is a little piece or two that I believe is supposed to open on starting and close when going off.

Shutter problem

JW, Amazon
4 September 2013
  • Summary: Although this may be a one-off issue, thought I should mention it. For the one I got, the shutter does not close properly. When you press "off", you can tell it tries to close but is stuck. You have to manually push it back in. Also a minor issue. The battery cabin is very difficult to open. You have to press and slip very hard to open it. When I showed to my father, he cannot even open it. Again, not sure if this is a one-off thing. Just want to let you know what I got.
