NOT WIDE ANGLE

B. Morris, Amazon
28 July 2009
  • Summary: I purchased the Opteka .45X wide angle and it is a low cost lens. The problem is it doesn't double the field of view as promised. A real 45X would more than double the field of view but this lens is more like a .75X so it only increases the field by around 30% not 100%. Most often you could step back enough with your camera to get the same increase in width.

should have saved $$

  • Summary: I am very disappointed in this camera. It is very easy to use, and the pictures (for the most part are good), but the flash is horrible. I have lost out on so many good pictures because of the poor quality of the flash. If it is not bright sunlight the pictures are very dark. I wish I would have saved my money and waited a month and bought the new Xsi. Also the printer that came with it prints poor quality color and it took me 5 months to get my rebate.

Avoid this camera, or at least don't try to get it repaired by Canon!

  • Summary: Other, much better picture quality and customer service available elsewhere. Start looking by going to http://www.dpreview.com/ and looking at their "Highly Recommended" cameras.
  • Pros: Tilt view screen. 12 Meg (available) Uses Compact Flash cards
  • Cons: Canon Consumer Service Center Poor design/ergonomics Heavy Limited quality inspite of 12megs

Serious Problems With This Camera

ivorysky, Amazon
23 September 2007
  • Summary: I'm now on my 3rd A650 and all seem to have a problem with the sensor. In many of my photos there is an obvious purple/pink band right in the middle of the photo. My current one is going back for a refund and I will only buy another when I'm certain Canon have fixed the problem.

GRANDE DECEPTION CHEZ CANON

Phenissia1, Ciao
18 October 2008
  • Summary: CANON REGRESSE AVEC LE PowerShot A 650IS Je possédais un appareil numérique Canon PowerShot A 610 qui malheureusement est tombé en panne au bout de 2ans, ceci dit j'en étais relativement satisfaite comme le PowerShot G3 que j'avais auparavant. Je me décide d'acheter le Canon PowerShot A 650IS avec une fiche technique (et pratique) très alléchante.
  • Pros: Bonne qualité pour des paysages uniquement .
  • Cons: A déconseiller pour des photos de famille .
