battery case problem

pistachionuticecream, Amazon
25 April 2012
  • Summary: After only 16 months of use, this camera is broken. There is always showing "change battery" message on screen although the battery is fully charged. (I know it because I have two batteries and both can not be taken by the camera.) I searched the internet and it seems this battery case problem happened on some other canon cameras and models too. Totally disappointed.

not like other Canon's I've had and loved

  • Summary: Canon PowerShot SD3500IS 14.1 MP Digital Camera with 3.5-Inch Touch Panel LCD and 5x Ultra Wide Angle Optical Image Stabilized Zoom (Black) I have owned the Canon 400, 600 and 630. Loved them all. I needed to upgrade and got the SD 3500IS in January 2011. I hate it! I'm not a fancy camera person but I take tons of pics of my grand kids, beach outings, birthdays, family gatherings and I have always gotten great pics. The 3500IS seems too temperamental.

Disappointed

Joanne M., Amazon
16 July 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this Canon SD3500IS to replace an older Kodak Easy Share 5MP. I read some negative reviews about this camera as well as positive ones and purchased it because of Canons reputation making good cameras. Let me first state the positive, the touch screen is brilliant as is the ease of use, compact design and solid build feel. Now the negative, the picture quailty is bad.

"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.

  • 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.

Poor picture quality

Fishon, Amazon
1 June 2010
  • Summary: After reading the reviews of other people I thought I buy this camera. The touch interface is awesome and very responsive. All options that are built in the camera was well thought out. The one and only problem is the picture quality of the camera. I took this camera to a Mexico cruise and all the pictures turned out horrible. The CA was present in all or most pictures. The pictures were not in focus. The color was too warm on the pictures.

Worst ever value

GWA, Amazon

  • 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.
