Acceptable camera, but Canon wouldn't honor warranty.

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.
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.
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.
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

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...
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.
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.
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.
