Summary: Hi, Bougth this camera and I noticed pretty soon that it will sue the abtteries pretty fast. I always needed to carry extra batteries. The worse though is that I can't even use this camera any longer. It is defective. It doesn't recognize the batteries anymore.
After 2 years I need a new camera because it eats batteries

Summary: I've had my Canon PowerShot SX120 IS for 2 years and it just started using AA batteries so quickly I will need to buy a new camera to be able to take Christmas photos. About a month ago it started requiring a battery change after about 30 photos.
Summary: We've had this camera for around a year and a half and need to replace it already. The picture quality is OK, though probably not quite as good as our old Canon A80 (4.0 megapixel). The disappointment? Battery life. To start out, the battery life was OK, tho' shorter than our old camera.
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.
Summary: The camera was purchased ahead of my wife's long awaitd trip to Lake Garda, a previous one having been cancelled due to a broken ankle. My wife took some practice shots to become familiar with the camera and was delighted with the results, however, 2 days into the holiday the camera would not switch...
Summary: Canon usually produce excellent cameras but the lack of a viewfinder on this model prevents its effective use among the very large proportion of the population who, due either to myopia or presbyopia, cannot see its screen without a rapid change of glasses, hardly conducive to good photography.
Summary: had camera for 10 months and it stopped working.Because they apparently found sand in it they wanted £108.26 to repair then as i did not think it worthwhile wanted a further £8.23 to return the unrepaired camera.Poor after sales beware
