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. For such an expensive product, it should have a much longer life.
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. I took it to the photo supply dealer that sold it to me and the owner replaced the batteries which made no difference. He finally bumped the camera on his hand and the lens retracted.
Summary: I BOUGHT A CANON POWERSHOT SX100IS FOR $223.00 Dlls.THROUGH AMAZON.COM, FROM 17th.Street Photo AND IT WAS A GREEN LEMON AND A RIP=OFF BECAUSE THE ZOOM WAS DEFECTIVE AND NEVER WAS ABLE TO GET A CLEAR PICTURE......ALWAYS BLURRED!!! AND UPON TRYING TO USE THE ZOOM...THE LENS RETRACTION WOULD GET STUCK AND A MESSAGE KEPT APPEARING ON THE LCD....."lens error......restart the camera".... 1.
Summary: I was very displeased with this camera. It would drain batteries in record time. I would get only 30 minutes of picture time from brand new batteries. A lot of the pictures I took came out blurry, even if I used the kid mode for action shots. I could get better action shots from my old 4.0 mp Kodak that was purchased several years ago. Even pictures of non moving subjects came out blurry. The only thing I liked about it was the size. I will never buy another Canon.
Summary: Canon PowerShot SX100IS 8MP Digital Camera with 10x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom (Silver) I purchased this Camera by looking into the positive reviews that every other site had. Here are the problems - This has just a reasonable picture quality. But this severely fails in dim light. Believe me, My Nikon coolpix 3200 is far more better in dim light. I also compared the shots with Kodak ZD 710 and Kodak is miles better than SX 100. - The color distinction is very poor.
Summary: Nachdem ich mich nach Erhalt über das Gerät sehr gefreut habe habe ich es natürlich ausführlich getestet: Zuerst war ich wirklich hochzufrieden mit dem Ergebnis. Leider zeigte sich am Display des Computers erst die Bescherung. Beihnahe jedes Bild welches im Auto-Modus gemacht wurde (gleich ob innerhalb eines Gebäudes oder an einem sonnigen Tag im Zoo wies eine vertzikale (bzw horizontale - je nach Betrachtungswinkel)durchgehende feine Linie in etwa 3/5 Höhe auf.
