  • Summary: PowerShot S3IS - PC 1192: Poor mechanical parts related to the zoom lens. Canon should be ashamed. I own several digital and film zoom lens cameras. This is the only one that has done this. The zoom gets jammed and everything stops.

Good camera until the lens errors

Emily, Amazon
12 January 2015
  • Summary: I bought this camera about 4 or 5 year ago and only used it for about a month or two before having lens issues. At first the lens would just have difficulty retracting and would make a weird noise, but then I started getting the "lens error, restart camera" message every time I'd turn the camera on.

dont waste your money

Carley Tilley, Amazon
20 February 2013
  • Summary: To out dated not worth the money. No camera that takes double a batteries is worth spending over 200 dollars on! Its a junk camera canon made. I suggest to not buy this one there is another that takes a lithium battery which is the one I was looking for.

Bad CCD problem.

Carl F. Otto, Amazon
25 July 2011
  • Summary: There are many complaints on the internet on the S3 IS CCD ceasing to function. I sent back my S3 IS and they claim there is no known problem with the S2 or S3 IS. Well my government S2 IS did the same thing.

To Be Honest... I'm Disappointed

Camperdude, Amazon
5 February 2008
  • Summary: I've owned several Canon point-and-shoots, and figured that the S3-IS would be a good next step up from my 3.2mp camera. To be honest, I've been VERY disappointed with the image quality.

User Review

  • Pros: Nice zoom, good color, good software
  • Cons: blurry, blurry, blurry. Owned a Sony dcv3 before this one--now that is a camera! We thought all digi cams must shoot that sharp. We hated this camera, simply because we got one sharp pict out of 10. Even at high ISO and with image stabilizer on.

Canon Powershot S3 Is Digital Camera Review

Peter Smith, Unbeatable
29 June 2007
  • Excerpt: Pluses Easy to use, lightweight and superb picture quality for the price. Well built. Macro and super macro excellent. Negs When batteries warning light comes up you dont have long at all before camera dies. Lithium rechargeable would have been better.
