Showing 1-10 of 64
Not as I expected
21 July 2013
Summary: I bought this to document artwork and it doesn't really work well for this which is a disappointment. Pictures of 3-d objects works alright but 2-d pictures are not clear at all which is what I needed it for. This camera is good for personal use but not professional quality images.
Summary: I use this camera for work. I take a lot of close up images and use the flash a lot. I found this camera annoying for this type of work. I suppose it would be OK for normal images. But the battery life is truly abysmal.
Pros: Can take a good picture Uses AA batteries, which can be bought anywhere
Cons: If you use the flash, battery life is very disappointing. Part of this is because this unit only uses two AA batteries. But I think the flash and display on this camera aren't designed with battery life as a consideration. Also, the coarse display can make it very hard to judge whether a closeup ...
Summary: I purchased this camera at over half-off the list price for my mother, a novice digital camera user who simply wanted it to take snapshots at various functions with the occasional outdoor shot thrown in. Features were less important than ease of use and quality output.
Summary: Canon has put out a lot of good cameras in the past couple years. Thats why I was especially disappointed when they came out with this model and I bought it thinking it would be as good as the rest of them.
Summary: Did not receive what was pictured of even described. It's a good camera to replace an older Cannon SX130. Like the fact that it still takes regular AA or rechargable AA batteries, especially when travelling.
