Acceptable camera, but Canon wouldn't honor warranty.

S. Power, Amazon
17 January 2013
  • Summary: This camera has been a pretty good compact camera, but it recently developed a flaw where it places a dark spot on all of my pictures. I paid to send this camera it to Canon for them to do a warranty repair, and they agreed that it was in warranty, but said that the repair wasn't covered by the...

  • Summary: I have had two of these die on me with a screen error that Canon later fixed. this was too bad because I really liked the features on this camera. I have an SD1300 which is working great for me now. The older models had a problem with a screen error which Canon wanted $100 to fix at factory.

Lens Error :(

Somtree, Amazon

  • Summary: I was so excited to buy a new Canon since the last camera I had was a Canon SD750 and I've had it for years and still takes great pictures. So i finally splurge and buy the Canon Sd 14000is and I loved it but the speaker never worked so exchanged for this 4000is and I loved even more.

Good camera, but lacks on advanced features

2 December 2011
  • Summary: I have been a hardcore canon fan for several years now. I have not owned any cameras other than canon. The main reason I bought this camera was for its advertised low-light capabilities and its ability to allow settings like shutter speed and aperture.

wanted to like it, but . . .

photogeezer, Amazon
18 November 2011
  • Summary: I could have lived with the inadequate base to set the camera on and the slippery-as-a-wet-fish feel, but the modest tele setting is amazingly bad. The pics were fuzzy and looked over-processed.

  • Summary: Pictures are a little blurry in the apeture priority mode.thought maybe the shutter speed was setting itself too low. Changed to shutter priority mode and set speed at 1/125 Pictures still blurry. Positives the colours are vibrant and the movies in HD mode excellent

Well-featured compact, but severe problems with focusing

Jack Burns "Compdude", Amazon
8 February 2011
  • Summary: When I purchased this camera, I had a very specific set of features I was looking for: -A compact shape (Canon ELPH or similar, "pocket size") -A wide short-zoom end (28mm or less) -A short long-zoom end (~120mm or less preferably) -In-lens image stabilization (not a sensor shift model) -Aperture...

Wish I'd stuck with the Nikon CoolPix

  • Summary: Beautiful HEAVY camera. Takes wonderful shots from the car which was one of the criteria. I've noticed it takes a long time to shoot if the lighting is low compared to a camera that just gives you bad pics with low lighting. That is not what I wanted...as I like candid shots.

Nice camera but too fragile for pocket

D. L. Howe "dave", Amazon
15 September 2010
  • Summary: This is a very nice little camera and the pictures it can produce are very good. The ability to shoot nearly four pictures per second (at full 10 mega-pixel resolution) means you can get just the right moment on "film". The biggest failing is the paper thin metal shell around the lens cover.

Nice but no cigar

JAFPhoenix, Amazon

  • Summary: Nice camera, takes great pictures and is very easy to carry. Beyond this, I didn't find the bells and whistles to be much of an improvement over the five-year-old Canon digital camera it replaced.
