"Good Camera but didn't last"
6 August 2009
Pros: Nice pictures, small size, large LCD, standard memory card and easy charging, good battery life
Cons: LCD only lasted 18 months. A round gray blob showed up the screen after a little over a year, today another one showed up and they slowly grow. There was no incident with the camera, the LCD is just very short lived.
Summary: The first thing I noticed when I first tried my camera was that the on/off button had been activated in my purse (in a camera hard shell case). The camera read lens error which has now happened about 50% of the time I take it with me in my handbag. And I'm not one who carries over the top amounts of stuff in my purse, so I'm not sure how it keeps turning on with a hard shell case!
Pros: Comfortable Controls, None at this point
Cons: Bad in bright light, Lens errors, Poor Operation in Low Light, Too heavy and bulky
Summary: Lens has failed 3 times in the past 12months. Sent it in for repair twice now and has failed again this week. The lens jams up and will not go back in place when turned off and will not focus. same fault, 3 times. Canon have asked for it to be sent to them now and their guys are going to look at it. Trying to get a replacement, fingers crossed.
