Summary: I have owned 5 canon cameras before I purchased the SD500. I Owned two Powershot s50's Both of which I loved. I lost the first S50 after two years of use. It had been taken to Europe and all over the world dropped many times and was beat up pretty bad but the LCD was always fine . I replaced that with another S50 after I left it in a restaurant. It was great too had it for almost a year and it was stolen from my bag at a beach.
LCD cracks - Canon gives runaround on warranty claim
18 October 2005
Summary: My SD500 took great pictures until the LCD cracked. It was in my hand taking great pictures at one moment, and then suddenly the display was gone! It wasn't dropped, mishandled, or abused in any way. Funny thing about the Canon warranty - it states that damage to the LCD is "assumed" to be through misuse. I'm getting the runaround trying to get it fixed - maybe they'll fix it, maybe not. It seems I'm not alone.
Summary: I have had this camera on test for a couple of weeks and compared with the Fujifilm F10 zoom this does not even come close the quality of pictures are not as good and the battery life is not as good. I chose the Fujifilm F10 zoom every time.
Summary: I am a Canon fan, having owned a succession of SLRs (10D & 20D) and a fair selection from the Ixus range, all of which have impressed me. Having read the rave reviews, I purchased the 700 as (what I thought would be), the perfect backup camera. The results have, however, been extremely disappointing. The images do not have the usual Canon crispness and in some cases (particularly in the middle ground) appear almost out of focus.
Summary: Mit der Kamera kann man hin und wieder "knipsen". Aber als ernstzunehmende Alternative zu einer herkömmlichen Spiegelreflexkamera kommt sie nicht in Frage. Ständig gibt es Probleme mit dem Autofocus. Selbst wenn man AiAF (artificial intelligence autofocus) abschaltet findet die Kamera oft nicht die richtige Schärfenebene. Ich werde mir nie wieder eine Nicht-Spiegelreflexkamera kaufen. Schade ums Geld!
Summary: Hace 2 meses compré la ixus 700 , al mes de comprarla aparece el error 18 (E18) me informo a través de internet que este problema le ha surgido a mucha gente y leo que cuando está en garantía en ocasiones te dan una cámara nueva y en otras te la reparan. Em mi caso me han dicho que la repararan, todavía estoy esperando la cámara y ver como habrá quedado, no me parece una forma seria de tratar un problema que parte de una marca que parecía seria.
