David A. Wilcox "Malpractice", Amazon
17 November 2007
  • Summary: We bought this camera largely based on reviews of others and to upgrade to a more manual, higher quality point and shoot. We were amazed by its video capabilities. Others give similar praise. Where we were disappointed was in the quality of the stills. The auto focus is hit and miss.

Great Camera..BUT...Received Two Defective Units! Check Yours!

D. Dietrich "duanekimonline", Amazon
23 October 2007
  • Summary: I first want to say the camera is great and takes awesome pictures. However, both the first camera and replacement camera I received had a defective sensor that would cause a small dark spot on the upper right quandrant of the picture in certain conditions.

A troubling trend

oddlycalm, Amazon
13 July 2007
  • Summary: After buying the S5 to replace my S3 I was very disappointed with the image noise as noted on another review here. This is not a Canon only problem and it's becoming a troubling trend as megapixels are added at the expense of image quality.

Made in China

Martin Murcina "Tsugaru", Amazon
19 August 2008
  • Summary: Bought this as my old S3IS was stolen and must admit there are better cameras for the money on the market. There is no substantial innovation compared to the discontinued model: - The camera is graining in the same manner as the S3IS when set to ISO above 200 - For a common user the higher mpx is...

Not the best..

F1 "Feelsgood", Amazon

  • Summary: Dont expect great images from this camera. It is only equal in results to my Lumix point and squirt 7 meg.Zoom is good but iso performance is poor.Heavy graining at 800. Battery life is very poor. Spend the extra cash on a nikon d40.

Good camera but with better alternatives!

H. A. Kevitiyagalage "Hiran", Amazon
28 April 2008
  • Summary: I got this camera few months ago after doing lots of research. It is well made and packed with many exiting features with relatively good picture quality and easy to use manual controls. However I expected more from this camera than what it offered me such as the picture quality.

Powershot S5 1S

Mrs. Thelma Levett, Amazon
11 April 2008
  • Summary: This is an excellent camera but was let down by a bad design fault. The lens cover is not attached to the lens but to the external housing. It has to come off to prevent the mechanism being damaged when the camera is turned on. Therefore the cover has been made to come off very easily.

  • Excerpt: men måste säga,det tar ett tag innan man lär sig alla finesser och när man har ett fel i zoomen, då har garantietiden gått ut, inte mycket att göra åt. Bilderna är av olika kvalitet ibland blir bilderna jättebra, andra gången kan jag inte använda en enda bild, bla om jag fotograferar när det är...
  • Pros: väger lite, lätt att ställa in
  • Cons: finns bara inbyggd zoom

Obsolescencia programada

Eduardo, quesabesde.com
2 October 2011
  • Summary: La mía ha dejado de funcionar, por un problema de los típicos que es mejor no arreglar, casualmente mi hermana también compró una Canon, que también ahora se ha estropeado. Yo me paso a otra marca. Disfrutaba de los resultados, pero que jueguen conmigo no es algo que me guste.

Digitale Kamera mit kleinen Macken

Jürgen, Amazon
24 August 2010
  • Summary: Seit rund zwei Jahren benutze ich nun diese Kamera. Hier mein Fazit: Die Vorteile: -- Gute Bedienung -- Scharfe und farbgetreue Bilder bei Tageslicht -- Großer Zoombereich -- Monitor bei Tageslicht noch bedingt nutzbar -- Ausstattung deckt auch die Wünsche anspruchsvoller Amateur-Nutzer ab Die...
