  • Summary: i'm a scuba diver who takes pictures of the fish. many years ago, i bought the a75 and several waterproof housings specific for that model. well, nothing lasts forever. however, i had a lot of money invested in housings for a camera that finally broke, couldn't be repaired and was discontinued.

  • Summary: Purchased this camera for our office. We used it for about 3 years, before the brokers managed to break it. However, it is now obsolete due to advances in technology over the years.

Defective CCD

Wildfire, Amazon
28 May 2013
  • Summary: I bought new (approximately $250) but rarely used the camera. I learned there was a defect a few years back but was never advised. The camera is unusable due to a problem with distortion of images and from what I have learned, Cannon will no longer offer a repair.

Not expensive but ultimately not useful either.

  • Summary: The camera arrived promptly and in good visual condition. I purchased this camera as it fits an underwater housing I have. Unfortunately, it showed dead lines on many of the photos, a fairly common problem with older Canon cameras.

Glad to find another A85 to replace in waterproof case.

  • Summary: I bought my first A85 some years ago. Later I bought a waterproof case for it. Recently I dropped the camera and broken it, so I needed to buy another one to use with the case. The one I bought now was refurbished, working very good. I took good pictures.

Good camera, great support

Jason W. Bacon "Out paddling", Amazon

  • Summary: I've had this camera for many years, and it's been great. It's fast, easy to use, and does good quality pictures. I also have the SCUBA housing, and have used it for photos and short video clips underwater. When the CCD recently died, I thought that was the end of it.

Good camera with backing of a great company

  • Summary: Read lots of reviews and Canon has an excellent reputation. Add to that a wilingness to make it right if something goes wrong. It is a winning combination.

Buying Cannon Camera's For Parts

coinsplustokens, Ebay
5 January 2011
  • Summary: What can I say. These cannon cameras are for parts. I find these cameras to be a very efficient way to use as an ebay tool. Parts are simple to find as you can see. The device is simple to use (point & shoot). Easy to understand.
