Disapointed again with CANON, Canon products have history of repairs. This one is not better. push button to take photo does not work and so also ..
2 January 2015
Summary: I am very disappointed with Canon Products. I only have this products because my Warranty forces me to get another one, and another one, and another one... and now I had the change to get the Power Shot D20. Before it was the D10.
Pros: If I can get it switch on I would be able to tell if I like it.
Cons: Canon products tend to give you fear,... fear that you do not know if it is going to take the next photo
Summary: I am deeply disappointed in Amazon, Canon and PCNation for their service regarding this item. The camera was described as "waterproof;" mine was not. I used it on a Colorado River trip in wet conditions and it appeared to work fine.
Summary: I bought this camera for beach and snorkeling photos. Only used it twice on two beach vacations. The first vacation the camera was great! It takes amazing photos for a point and shoot, especially sunsets (better sunset photos than my DSL camera!).
Summary: We are long time Canon camera owners so we bought this when we planned our trip to raft the Grand Canyon. Within days of being on the water the camera became fogged. After that point the camera was unable to take a picture that didn't just look like fog.
Conclusion: I am extremely disappointed with this camera. Our family loves to be in the water. I thought this camera would be perfect. Unfortunately it is not really waterproof. The first one I bought started leaking within a month. Canon sent me a new one.
Summary: Great, till it failed. I took my new camera on a Caribbean cruise. Having owned a similar model, I was ultra careful opening the port to download pictures. Eventually I opened the battery port to add a fresh one, on the next use it leaked and has refused to dry out and work.
Conclusion: I purchased this camera and used it underwater twice without problem. The third time while snorkeling it filled with water and is now useless. I will send it to Canon but am not hopeful they will replace it as it is out of warranty. After reading the reviews, I think this model is a lemon.
Summary: I bought this camera to use for beach and cruise vacations, so it was only used twice between the purchase date (December 2012) and it's failure date (January 2014). First trip to a Helmet Dive in the Caribbean yielded really wonderful pictures.
Video started making click sound for unkown reason

Summary: I owned this camera for about a year. I used it lightly, always washed it after being in the water, and did not drop or damage it. After owning it for about one year (used maybe 10 times total), it started making a clicking sound when taking video.
If you use it underwater, pay for a longer warranty

Summary: I bought this camera in June, 2012 to use primarily when on snorkeling trips. It died in January, 2014, a year and a half and four snorkeling trips later. Since the warranty is for one year, I am SOL unless I send it in to Canon and pay a minimum of $179 plus parts, etc to have them repair it.
