Died of a 'lens error' after five months, and Canon refused to honor the warrantee. Feeling Burned.

Hilltop, Amazon
19 October 2014
  • Summary: I bought this camera in February of 2014. Shortly thereafter I started having problems with the lens freezing and a "lens error" message. This came and went until July 2014 when the lens froze and never came back on again -- rght in the middle of a trip for a friend's wedding. I sent it for repairs from Canon. This should have been covered by the warrantee, right? It was an error that started after I had barely owned the camera and it was only five months old.

Flash is defective

Marc T. Beck, Amazon
8 September 2014
  • Summary: I received this camera (I owned and liked the S90) over a month ago. I took pictures and everything seemed just fine. I took it on a vacation just this past weekend and discovered that the FLASH simply does not work. At all. I cannot force it to flash or use modes that would flash. I know how this camera should work based on years with the S90.

Battery Power Poor, Operating Dial Poor.

BJ, B&H Photo
14 July 2014
  • Excerpt: Battery looses power very quickly even without using flash. Does not last a day. Operating mode dial moves too easily when operating zoom controls and often turns the dial to video position. unless checked regularly when reviewing pictures is when you find they all have video attached.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Great Resolution, Great Zoom
  • Cons: No Viewfinder, Short Battery Life

DO NOT BUY

Andy, Amazon
29 March 2014
  • Summary: This camera has a design fault. The battery dies after about 10 minutes of recording video or 30 minutes of general use. There is a video of it on YouTube with lots of comments from people. I had mine replaced and the second one has the same problem, so returning for a refund. The S95 in comparison gave about 3 hours general use on exactly the same battery. Lovely camera but unusable, especially for underwater, where you cannot change the battery.

Kamera ist während des Urlaubs kaputtgegangen

Han Solo, Amazon
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: Ich habe die Canon PowerShot S120 im September 2014 gekauft. In meinem Indonesien-Urlaub setzte ich dann die Kamera ein und die Bilder und Videos waren sehr gut (für einen Kamera-Laien). Allerdings ist die Kamera dann in der Mitte des Urlaubs plötzlich ausgegangen. Auch das Auswechseln der Batterie änderte daran nichts. Die Kamera war tot. In Deutschland wieder angekommen, schickte ich die Kamera an Canon für eine Reparatur: massiver Wasserschaden.

Android-App NICHT lauffähig unter Lollipop

Jörg Wagner, Amazon
27 December 2014
  • Summary: Ich habe diese Kamera aus diversen Gründen gewählt. Ganz wesentliches Kriterium war die Möglichkeit, Bilder schmerzfrei auf andere Endgeräten übertragen zu können, sodass sich ein Weg eröffnet, höherwertige Fotos zeitnah per Smartphone zu mailen, sowie in Blogs, auf Google+ und Facebook zu posten.

Display kaputt

Astrid Dietz, Amazon
2 October 2014
  • Summary: Ich hatte die Kamera gerade einen Monat, dann ist der Display kaputt gegangen. Theoretisch funktioniert die Kamera noch und macht Bilder, aber es bringt ja nichts, wenn man nicht sieht was man fotografiert bzw keine Einstellungen mehr machen kann.
