Great, for a while...

  • Summary: I received this camera for my anniversary from my husband. I loved how easy it was to use and the picture quality. Unfortunately, a year and a half after purchase, I got the fatal "lens error". This effectively means the camera is dead and can only be repaired by Canon for $99.

31 July 2009
  • Summary: * Large screen size * Light and portable * 10x zoom 6-60 aperture f2.8-4.3 * ISO from 80-1600 * Fast shutter response * Macro mode for occasional flower and other close-ups. * 8 mpix processor
  • Pros: On vacation not a tiny rectangular box a lady can easily carry in her purse but still very light and portable to carry around., Easy to operate menu settings, Large viewing screen of 3" fore easy viewing., Good size zoom with relatively wide aperture for low light situations., Low ISO for fine-gr...
  • Cons: ISO settings work well up to 400. When set to 800 & 1600 can see much more grain. ISO settings fixed at 80, 100, 200, 400, 800 & 1600. Definitely not an SLR where you can get in between settings., F-stop only go up to F8. When shooting macro or scenic shots with people you may want to set to F11 ...

Lemon from day one, I will not buy a Canon again.

C. Snider "thejudgemeister", Amazon
23 July 2009
  • Summary: I bought this camera in May of 2008 because I had an old (26 yrs) 35mm Canon that I loved and it always took great photos. After about 6 months, the camera started to fail to focus at random. The lens jammed in September '08 and would not retract. It gave me a reset message.

Great PRO-Sumer camera, from start to finish

B. Moore "Fleece", Amazon
19 January 2009
  • Summary: This camera was a big purchase for me because I wanted something with more than the standardized 3x Optical Zoom of the vast majority of consumer digital cameras. I can easily say I am very satisfied, after more than a year of use.

Perfect do-all travel camera

svenson, Amazon
12 January 2009
  • Summary: I've traveled with a lot of different cameras, the SX100IS is far closer to 'perfect' than any I've owned. It's compact, light weight, and has most of the important functions on a much larger camera.

Great Compact Ultra Zoom!

DV, Amazon
9 January 2009
  • Summary: I wanted a compact ultra zoom camera to take with me to Baseball games, travelling, etc, when I would be unlikely to carry around my full DSLR with me. This camera is perfect, and the Image stabilization is a must have for a zoom of this range in such a small package (since your hands shake a bit...

  • Summary: I bought this for my best friend for Christmas and he loves it! He picked it out and it was exactly what he wanted in a camera. He's an amateur photographer and was looking for a camera to replace his old one. This one was perfect!

  • Excerpt: This camera is wonderful. I purchased it last spring to replace another Canon PowerShot that I had been using since 2002. It is amazing how much the technology had changed in those 6 years. This camera actually makes me look like a photographer, and I have actually …

Great Customer Service from Canon

Gary Fisher, Amazon
2 December 2008
  • Summary: Canon PowerShot SX100IS 8MP Digital Camera with 10x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom (Silver) I previously owned a Canon Powershot S3 and loved it, however it was a bit too big and I wanted more mega pixels so I upgraded to a Powershot SX100. The camera is great and fairly easy to use.
