GREAT PICTURES BUT "CHANGE BATTERIES" SIGN TOO FREQUENT

Summary: My wife was delighted when this camera came her way as she was able to take photos of our newly born grand-daughter. Unfortunately it only takes a couple of photos before CHANGE BATTERIES comes up. We have spent pounds feeding this darn camera and even tried NiMH type but the problem remains so we have to find a new camera and ditch this one. Don't buy! Don't buy! Don't buy!
Faulty camera and then told the product had been discontinued when i wanted a replacement?!

Summary: This product arrived and straight away after pulling out of the box and turning on it showed lens error. I tried contacting the supplier but didn't get a reply until a week later at which point they told me to return it back to them and they would replace it. I waited 2 more weeks before i got fed up and contacted them at which point they told me it was out of stock and discontinued by them?!
Summary: I am never going to buy a camera again if it doesn't have a rechargable battery inbuilt. The price is nice - until you have to buy replacement batteries every two days. That's right, every two days!!! I am spending a fortune on batteries... not only annoying to my pocket, but awful for the environment.
Summary: I like Cannon cameras. However, this one is dreadful. Nearly every photo turns out blurry. It is useless for casual snapshots (which the size and weight are perfect). It must be held absolutely still, pointed directly at the subject and fired. It needs a tripod! It is the most useless camera I have ever owned and I'm disappointed that Cannon would produce it.
Summary: Having only been used a few times, the camera has developed a fault, whereby the low battery indicator lights up and shutter mechanism locks. Despite replacing with new batteries, the same problem continues. Since the purchase date is 3 days outside the 33 day rule, I am unable to return the camera to Amazon and am in the process of returning to a Canon repair centre. - Have found the Amazon return assistance to be very poor indeed.
Summary: Please dont buy this toy camera as it waits like 10 secs to charge your flash for the next picture, and the picture quality is really really just below OK. If u want this i suggest collect a little more and get something else.
