"A complete disapointment"

M-Striker, CNET
18 February 2011
  • Pros: Cannot not think of any
  • Cons: Terrible picture quality. 4 out 5 photos are out of focus, incorrect WB for indoor shooting, a very long delay for the flash to recharge. And this is almost in every shooting mode: A, P, Portate, indoors, etc.

Poor image quality

Samster, J&R
6 February 2011
  • Summary: After reading favorable reviews, and having had several Canon cameras in the past, I was excited to try the SD3500 IS. The size, the functions and the battery life were all fine, but unfortunately the picture quality was horrible - especially indoors with the flash. The images also suffered from pronounced barrel distortion, so much so that some of them looked like they were taken in a fun-house mirror.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, Poor Image Quality

Canon SD3500

Walmart
21 June 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this camera for my wife to replace her old digital camera. I selected this model because it had some nice features that I thought would be very helpful to her. Unfortunately the photos from this camera were of such poor quality that they would be practically unuseable. Images exhibited unacceptable noise in all but the best light even at ISO 80. The photos we took could not be printed greater than 4 by 6 and then only those taken outside in the best light.

Worst ever value

GWA, Amazon
7 February 2011
  • Summary: This camera stopped working within warranty period. Had to be sent to Germany who, after weeks and without any reference to me or any opportunity for me to refute, claimed it was not a warranty problem. They appear to be the ultimate authority on this and what they say ends all debate. In my view their claim was a pretext to avoid fixing the camera. There are many comments on the Web saying this fault ("Lens Fault") is a problem which happens often with these cameras.
