Summary: The problem with getting a battery powered camera is that the camera is battery powered. Which means the thing runs out of batteries if you even LOOK at it too long. Camera seems a little flimsy in the hand. Pictures are good with it, when you remember to put fresh batteries in it.
Summary: I absolutely hate this camera. I had the previous version and loved it but my grand daughter accidently dropped it in the bathtub. This camera uses up the batteries like crazy. I have rechargables and they die sooner than non rechargables.
Summary: Every now and then you find reviews from people who were extremely unhappy with this little camera. Well, mine is one of those. Super light, but feels cheap. Blurry pictures - couldn't get it to focus (tried indoors, outdoors, flash/no flash, etc). Had to return.
Summary: This camera takes two AA batteries, which last about 24 hours. I'm not sure if I got a lemon or what but the battery life makes this camera just about unusable. Picture quality is fine - if the camera will take the picture.
Summary: Some features of this camera are merely inconvenient, like the very short battery life and the wait of several seconds between flash photos. But the deal breaker is the blurry pictures that result from focus issues.
Summary: I cannot believe that Canon would even release this thing! I have tried it with several different types of batteries and not one of them will last more than 1 day. INCREDIBLE!!!!!!! The other day,..I put in fresh batteries out of the box.....took the camera to my son's game.
Summary: This is the worst product I have ever had in my entire life. I put in new batteries, take two pictures, turn it off, then the batteries are drained the next morning. UNBELIEVABLE PIECE OF TOTAL CRAP! CANON SHOULD BE SUED.
Summary: Sorry to say, this is my 1st negative review of a product on Amazon and I hate to do it, however I would not be able to recommend this camera model to anyone! (I have had Canon Powershots in the past that I loved, too.) I bought this camera and immediately fell in love.
