  • Summary: I probably took 30 pictures with this camera and the shutter button popped out! I was advised by the canon rep it was from "hard use"? I have another camera that I have owned over 7 years and never had a problem with it. I would not recommend this product to another consumer and I will never buy another Canon product again.

  • Summary: i bought this and did not use it until after the holidays and then realized it does not work. the price was low but there is a 15 day return policy for cameras, so by the time i found out it was no good i couldn't return it. basically it is too much camera for two AA batteries. i get 4 or 5 pics and done - if i use the flash it takes forever to charge the flash and i might get 2 pics.

  • Summary: The positives: 16x optical zoom, uses AA batteries, fits nicely in hand and flash is in a convenient spot unlike a Nikon (which is right above your left finger), can zoom while doing movies, movies are very nice and convenient to start and stop. I rated value Good because it was on sale for a vg price. Neutrals or Negatives: eats alkaline batteries BUT if you use Duracell rechargeable you will be very happy. Initial flash charge is average, next charges are ok.

  • Summary: I bought this camera for Christmas and took over 200 pictures on it the week of Christmas. I am not sure if I will be able to salvage 60 of them. In fact, I was convinced there must be something wrong with the camera, and after returning home and reading more reviews than I did previously, it seems that with this camera you either get a good one or you get a bad one. I definitely got a bad one. Even Consumer Reports said this camera is good!

  • Summary: Very easy to use, and takes above average quality photos and videos for it's price range. HOWEVER, the camera arrived with dust covering the internal lens. This cannot be cleaned. So, particularly when taking photos when using the flash or low light, you can see the dust particles reflected on the finished photos.

  • Summary: I don't like writing negative reviews ... or reading them for that matter, however, I did return this camera. Even though it's almost unheard of for me to return anything, photos are important to me especially to have record and memories at hand of our children and family. That written, the idea of often blurry pictures is not acceptable for me. Children don't always stay still to pose for shots, and this camera just left too many blurry shots.
