Not Practical for the Real World

Nathan C., Amazon
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: Wish I could give it more stars, but just not usable in the real world. The startup time is terrible, so don't plan to draw and shoot anything unplanned. This alone is the reason I pawned the camera off to another department so I could replace with a Canon 100HS.

So disappointed in Canon

Brandon, Amazon
18 January 2014
  • Summary: I've had this camera since the day it was released a few years back. The current line up of cameras at the time all had great ratings, so I figured once this new model came out it would be even better. I was totally wrong.

Thought I could handle the faults of this cam, but its been painful

S. Ray "S.Ray", Amazon

  • Summary: This is no SD500 for sure. But I have no complaints about image quality, controls or menus. My biggest complaints about this camera, (which I think are inexcusable for a company with Canon's experience), - The short battery life - Blurry video without constantly holding your finger on the shutter...

Dislike

  • Summary: Takes too long to take picture, moments lost. Scene changes don't really apply, makes no difference when taking the pictures.

I hate this camera

. ., Amazon
23 August 2012
  • Summary: I hate this camera. The video refocuses periodically while videoing, even if you aren't adjusting zoom, which leaves blurry moments in the videos. The camera is SLOW to take photos, so we get a lot of photos of people blinking.

Very poor battery life and out-of-focus pictures

NMOT "NMOT", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this camera as an upgrade but it turns out that the performance on this model is poor. Subjects often end up blurry, with red eyes or underexposed/overexposed. Even in minor motion, subjects will end up blurry.

Many flaws with this one,

  • Summary: This is our third Canon Powershot and have loved them all, except this one. When this came out we decided to upgrade from an older model SD630. Thre are many things that make the SD4500 a horrible buy.

Not up to Canon standards

PKnight, Amazon
3 December 2010
  • Summary: I have used several Canon cameras over the years and currently use a SX20IS that is great. The SD4500IS falls way short of what I have come to expect of Canon cameras. The autofocus takes way too long to focus on a subject and even then the shots are not always in focus.

Went back to Amazon

ohiomom, Amazon
17 November 2010
  • Summary: Not for me. The first week I had it, I had to charge the battery twice-something I'm not used to. I need a grab and go camera. Not one where you get it out and "OH NO, my battery's dead!" Also when taking video, I was upset when I played it back and it kept focusing in and out.
