Canon camera

nellajeanjohnson, Ebay
14 October 2010
  • Summary: I bought this camera because I had lost a later version and was going on vacation and needed an inexpensive camera for the trip. After only 5 days of usage the screen went black and we could not take another picture. When I tried to have it repaired, I was told that it would cost as much as a new one to fix. The attendant said the age of the camera was the reason so beware!

LCD display is big but fragile

John B. Mudd, Amazon
27 April 2005
  • Summary: Think twice before buying the Canon SD 200, SD 300 or any SD series camera. The LCD displays are large but extremely fragile. Mine was cracked on the second day. It was NOT dropped or abused. I also have a Canon S110 and have taken just over 5,000 photos with it since Christmas 2001 without any problems. Apparently, in an attempt to make the new models light and the displays large, Canon sacrificed durability. In some cases Canon will "waive" the LCD repair cost.

Fragile LCD spoils a wonderful camera

Joshua D. Auerbach "jdauerbach", Amazon
27 February 2005
  • Summary: I loved this camera, for the first two weeks. The, after a day in the moderate cold (above freezing), the LCD cracked -- which some quick web searching reveals is a common problem with this model. I'll be sending mine back to Canon for repair (at their expense, I hope, though LCD cracks are in the words of the warranty a sign of "abuse"), and I look forward to its return. It's a wonderfully tiny, very fast camera that takes good snapshots and movies.

LCD Cracks when menu button is pressed

T. Shank, Amazon
5 February 2005
  • Summary: I bought the SD300 for the holidays, but the LCD broke when I pressed the menu button on the back. This happened three weeks after purchasing the camera, and Canon's warranty won't cover the problem. To fix the camera, the cost is a whopping $155.00! I consider this a defective design and I certainly do not recommend this camera to anyone.

Stick to making Photocopiers, Canon

The Vicar, Amazon
28 May 2014
  • Summary: This Canon camera suited me fine for just over a year, cute, easy to use, loved it. Then one day the zoom wouldn't operate and "Error E18" came up on the screen. Thanks to the www I realised belatedly that I had joined a vast club of people who struggle to get these types of zoom cameras to function, once their warranty runs out. The problem is well-known and ignored by the manufacturers (see Wikipedia E18 / lens error page).

Canon IXUS 40

chunwa3, review33.com
18 January 2008
  • Summary: 本人之CANON Digital IXUS 50 LCD 2次無固自行爆裂.每次送機往佳能維修部亦給該公司推說為受外來壓力才會爆裂.將責任推到消費者身上.但本人深信問題出於該機款上.因本人素來愛機.此機從未有跌撞.及擠壓.日常都有皮套包好.但該機問題亦太多.隨上年LCD無固自行爆裂.該公司誤導為我在不知覺間壓爆.初時亦無奈相信在有保養期內還要自行支付伍百多元維修.在較早時此機之鏡頭又無固於使用中停止轉動.幸好於維修部又突然正常轉動.但今次又無固爆LCD.在保養期又要自行支付維修費.如此機款經常出現這樣情.甚覺在設計上保護不足.但該公司又將責任推到消費者身上.怎樣好。

herbe Enttäuschung

M. Nauerz, Amazon
1 August 2006
  • Summary: Ich habe diese Kamera vor knapp 1 Jahr geschenkt bekommen. Über die Qualität der Bilder war ich sehr positiv überrascht, ich habe viele schöne Erinnerungsphotos schießen können. Allerdings hat die Kamera nach ca. 1/2 Jahr mit dem allseits beliebten E18-Fehler den Geist aufgegeben. Hierbei fährt sich das Objektiv nicht mehr aus/ein, was durch eine Verschmutzung zustande kommt.

Schöne Kamera, Bildqualität gut. Qualität der Verarbeitung und Service sehr schlecht.

M. Barthel, Amazon
7 July 2006
  • Summary: Ich habe die Kamera 8 Monate genutzt. Ich war sehr zufrieden mit der Bildqualität, mit dem Design und vor allem der Auslösegeschwindigkeit. Auch die Akkulaufeit war wirklich lang. Allerdings ließ sich nach ca. 8 Monaten das Objektiv nicht mehr einfahren und die Kamera zeigte den Fehler E-18 an. Da ich mich noch in der Garantiezeit befand, schickte ich die Kamera ein. Nach ca.
