Summary: The camera was fine as far as all the functions working properly and the picture quality is great. The only problem we had was there was some corrosion on the battery contacts and it drains batteries dead even when off. It appears someone left some AA batteries in it to corrode and it caused some damage. But it does work fine as far as the funtions. It just has a very short battery life and you cant leave batteries in it when its turned off.
The camera is great as long as your super careful. One small bump while the lens is open broke it.

Summary: This was a very user friendly camera with pro-like functionality. I was very sad to have it break after a month of use. My son ever-so-lightly bumped me while I was taking a photo and the lens jammed. Into the trash my money went. Be careful with this baby!
Summary: I received this camera recently and I am very satisfied with it. I works wonderful for taking pictures and shooting videos. The price was reasonable too. only one thing about this item, I did not receive an instruction manual for this item. I pretty much figured out how to operate the camera on my own, not too difficult. I am overall satisfied with this product.
WARNING - CAMERA SWITCHES ON EASILY AND WILL RUIN LENS!

Summary: This camera would be great, except for a fatal flaw! It commonly switches on inside the users' purse, pocket ect, this causes the lens to jam and then the camera does not work properly and makes a horrible grinding noise while turning on. After this event there are spots in the picture, you cannot use the zoom feature properly, and the camera continuously errors out reporting the lens cannot be closed. This has happened to my husband twice!
Summary: Great camera except mine eats batteries. 30-35 photos and it says to replace batteries. The alkaline batteries, (normally 1.5 volts) test at 1.47 volts when it says to replace them. The "dead" batteries worked in a flashlight for 4 hours before I shut the flashlight off. It reccomends NiMH batteries for longer shooting time. NiMH batteries are 1.4 volts. They probably won't even work in this camera. I took the camera to the CANON service center.
