Terrible camera-DO NOT BUY IT!

  • Summary: I got robbed. Will not purchase anything from Canon without extensive testing before hand. Seriously feel robbed.
  • Pros: None. Oh, I meant to say, none. (BTW this website is nearly as terrible).
  • Cons: Expensive. Won't focus in low light. Won't focus in soft light. Won't focus in medium light. Won't focus in high light. Did I mention it won't focus? I have tried every option, every apeture setting, every lighting situation, everything!

Major disappointment

  • Summary: I bought this camera over the Kodak Z915 (takes AA batteries with 10x zoom) or Z950 (lithium battery with 10x zoom) due to the reviews. Well it's biggest problem is picture quality. I rarely got an image that wasn't soft, no matter what I tried. Also, the focus square would most always not select the main subject. When I chose the select faces option, only one or two faces would be chosen and often those in the background rather than the nearest subject.

Printing off pictures

14 May 2010
  • Summary: The camera appears to work fine for me but my wife found the camera a bit awkward to use. I was able to get a few prints that were acceptable for viewing. Color was just not right. I tried several different printing programs but found that it made little difference even using all editing features. Went back to my old Kodak 3.1 MP -- pictures were fine.

  • Summary: We received the camera, and it worked GREAT for a day or so....then just wouldnt turn on. Changed all the batteries and still nothing. We have returned it and are waiting for a new one. We loved the picture quality and the camera...other than having to manually flip the flash. but it was a great camera until it stopped working.

  • Excerpt: Сие изделие было куплено в 2010 году. Первое время были танцы с бубном в надежде вытянуть из него хоть что-нибудь!!! Впоследствии зашвырнул его в дальний угол и брал с отвращением только в случае крайней необходимости! До Canona был Olympus Camedia C-725 Ultra Zoom, о котором остались самые лучшие воспоминания, прослужил верой и правдой 5 лет, оставив в память о себе прекрасные фотографии.
  • Pros: Zoom, ручные настройки ББ, выдержки и диафрагмы, удобное меню............
  • Cons: Отвратительное качество фотографий!! Не понимаю восторженных отзывов по поводу данного изделия. Лично я, перелопатив в настройках всё, что только можно, так и не смог добиться мало-мальски приемлемой чёткости! Шумы - невообразимые, ISO400 - уже не годится для работы!! Батареи пожирает ну просто молниеносно! В режиме работы со вспышкой - тормоз ещё тот!!!

  • Excerpt: Отличный фотоаппарат, но какие-то проблемы с конструкцией объектива. Первая полмка через 8 месяцев. Поменяли по гарантии бесплатно. Вторая поломка СНОВА объектива через 1,5 года использования. Замена стоит 2500 рублей в авторизованном центре CANON. Новый фотоаппарат 4600. Весьма непонятное ценообразование в сервисе... Похоже фотоаппараты этой серии покупать не буду больше никогда. Особенно учитывая 2 поломки объектива за 2 года.
  • Pros: Отличное качество фото, хороший зум, мощная вспышка.
  • Cons: долго заряжается вспышка, проблемы с конструкцией объектива (две поломки за 2 года)

  • Excerpt: Ну что сказать...возможно, если бы не какие-либо "чудики" со всеми мочнейшими аккомуляторами, возможно, мнени е было бы другое.
  • Pros: - Отличнейшая макросъёмка!
  • Cons: - Не могу определить, почему аккомулятора хватает на 10 снимков! Возможно, заводской брак... - Качество фото в автоматическом режиме достаточно низкое
