do not buy this camera
12 March 2014
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.
Summary: I've been reading voluminous reviews on all kinds of point and shoot cameras for months. Looked like this one might fill the bill, however I am disappointed and will be taking it back for the following reasons: 1. the display screen is dark and grainy 2.
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...
Summary: I just got this camera for Christmas and I have already gone through 4 battery and working on the next two. The camera only takes two batteries. Takes great pictures but is unbearably slow. After using the flash you have to wait two minutes for the flash to charge before you take another picture.
Summary: I am surprised that canon would have this camera. It burns battery amazingly quickly. The screen of taking video becomes smaller. quite often the screen has something looks like rain or drizzles. I like canon digital camera but this one is really disappointing me.
Summary: The display screen was fuzzy and low resolution. Every picture I took was blurry. The time between when you press the button and when the camera takes the picture is REALLY LONG and by that time my kids (and even the adults) had already moved.
Summary: My grandmother got me this camera for my birthday six months ago. Since then I have had to ship the original to Canon services, along with the first refurbished one they sent and got a refurbished back again. I just received the third today and it is still the same model and has the same problems.
Summary: I have had numerous canon cameras and have LOVED them all. THIS ONE NOT!!!! The flash takes forever to recycle and after each picture it flashes busy forever. If you want to take pictures quickly in sequence this is NOT the camera for you. Also, the pictures seem blurry on many of the images.
