Summary: I previously had a Nikon point and shoot camera. The picture quality was acceptable, but it was extremely slow. So I decided to get a Cannon camera instead. Normally, a person can rely on Amazon reviewers and get a good results. Oddly, this does not appear to be the case with cameras.
Summary: This camera is an OK point-and-shoot, but I've definitely had better. It often has trouble focusing, and the shutter speed is very slow. For example, taking a picture in a bar takes 20+ seconds, which makes for awkward standing-together-when-is-the-flash-going-to-go-off pictures.
Summary: Be aware of picture quality issues with this camera: - Shots are often out of focus unless you're outside in daylight - Colors often aren't true - Contrast is often off with light areas being over exposed and darks too dark. The pictures lose their detail and look unnatural.
Summary: I have had a lot of point and shoot camera's over the years, and when my last one broke I was excited to find this one on sale. I have owned precious Cannon PowerShots, but this one was a real let down.
Summary: Considering the fact that Canon was known to be a top selling camera brand, it made sense to purchase one. I bought it about one month ago and within the first week, it kept on reading a "Memory card error" message.
Summary: Well I am back on Amazon hoping for better luck in the camera department. After buying this one in the chocolate brown, I thought it looked great and very stylish. It worked fairly well the first dozen times I used it for a basic point and shoot but I did have a lot of frustration with blurred...
The Len was stuck outside and cannot get back in after 6 months of usage
16 January 2011
Summary: I purchase this camera in last December. The quality, as a product from canon, really let me down. The camera len got stuck outside and cannot get back in while I was adjusting the focus several weeks ago. Now the camera as a dead one lying on the desk in my dorm.
Summary: There are plenty of in-depth reviews available, so I'll keep mine short and sweet. This is my 3rd Canon camera of the digital elph line over the span of four years. I used this camera for two days and I couldn't be more disappointed. It's in the box on it's way to being returned to Amazon.
Summary: I have owned several Canon digital cameras, including G-series. I've also used a number of other models owned by my relatives. When this camera arrived, right away I noticed the screen had a very grainy, pixellated appearance. When reviewing shots, they looked relatively normal.
