A thoroughly unlovable camera

Amazon
29 August 2012
  • Summary: I'm starting to develop an opinion about Canon cameras and it isn't a good one. I know there are lots of Canon devotees out there, but every model I've owned or played with has been a disappointment. The specs and reviews of the SX150 IS were good... 14.1 MP and a nice long 12x zoom. I liked the fact that you could choose aperture priority or shutter priority (if you know what those things mean then you'll appreciate having them).

  • Summary: The amount of effort needed to take pictures with this camera is not worth it when there are other cameras out there with a similar price tag that perform better.
  • Pros: This camera takes clear, focused pictures and is very easy to use.
  • Cons: shortest battery life in a camera even when using high reserve

  • Summary: Purchased this camera from Fonz Mania as a present for someone else.Camera arrived,but as soon as I unpacked it I realized it has been used.Box was tatty,no manufacturer seal nor there was a protective film on the LCD display.On further inspection I found a glue from a ripped off sticker near the battery compartment.When I contacted the seller he asked me - 'Why do you think the camera has been used???

Extremely poor

Richard, Amazon
6 April 2013
  • Summary: Having been a user of Canon cameras for six years I was extremely disappointed by the SX150.Pictures are repeatedly out of focus(IT seems to prefer the background to the subject)The macro setting refuses to coincide with the flash and the battery usage surpasses the greedy..I have returned to using the PowershotA580 which this was supposed to replace-a much better and more reliable camera.Incidentaly the movie button on theSX150 is very badly placed.

Eats batteries

Christopher, Amazon
21 February 2013
  • Summary: Bought the canera for its functionality and being a good reputable brand. However it is advertised as being able to run on 2 AA batteries what is doesn't specify is that normal batteries will only last 20 pictures! so you will either have to carry a huge bag around for a day, kill the planet a little more or go and spend more money on a couple od sets of rechargeables batteries.
