Just wide angle and nothing more

florin iftode, Amazon
29 November 2012
  • Summary: I tried and tried to like this camera, but I can't. The quality of the pictures, even outside in day light are really bad and without vivid color. The auto mode it is a real joke, my smart phone takes better pictures and if you want to take pictures at interior, just forget about - takes awhile to...

Poor design

Canon used to be great! What happened?

I Live in 91607, Amazon
30 November 2009
  • Summary: This was my 3rd Canon and I expected image quality to be at least as good or better than my SD800. Wrong. Quality was awful. Very flat photos. I suppose I could've played around with it more than 3 days and get good photos but I'm referring to "auto" mode. That's what P&Ss are for.

What is Canon Thinking?

Twoboxer, Amazon
16 September 2009
  • Summary: You may be confused by other reviews here. Some give 1 star, some give 4 or 5. Sharp pictures . . . terrible pictures. Which is it? Here's the scoop: In "Auto" mode, the camera chooses the ISO setting and that cannot be defeated.

Pictures are not crisp

Tony Liu, Amazon
8 September 2009
  • Summary: I took the name of Canon for granted and bought this wide angle camera without seeing any reviews. Unfortunately I have to say I've made a mistake. I like most of the little things offered in this camera including the touch-screen features and HD movies. But the pictures are not sharp.

  • Summary: Bought this camera some while ago. Arrived quickly enough but looked used and badly packaged in a torn box. The pictures we took also looked very grainy. Threw away after two months.
