Reviews and Problems with Canon PowerShot SX160 IS
Showing 1-10 of 56
Baffled, need help...
17 April 2014
Summary: The pictures I have been taking are somewhat grainy. After I take the pic and see it, the word busy shows up on the bottom most times. I'm sure I have some sort of setting wrong, but just wanted it to take very clear pictures. Can anyone tell me what may be wrong with this.
Summary: After reading the reviews I was expecting high quality photos but was disappointed by what I got. The Kodak 10MP I currently own takes better quality pics than this Canon does! I ended up returning this Canon and got an upgraded model Kodak for a third of the price!
Summary: One of the reasons I purchased this camera is because it came with so many extra batteries, my mistake. The camera is great, but the bonus rechargeable batteries never did charge so were totally useless.
Summary: This camera is larger than I thought it would be a hard to articulate in my wifes small hands the focus takes a long time to clear and give you a sence of what you are about to take a picture of. We have only had it fo a few weeks and I am hopeing it will grow on us but so far I am not impressed
Summary: Bought it because it appeared to be a lot of camera for the money. However, I was somewhat disappointed by its performance. My main complaint is that it takes a very long time to recover between pictures - especially when using the flash - you'll miss a lot of good shots waiting for it to reload -...
Summary: The camera came with everything it said it came with but the rechargeable batteries do not hold a charge. After charging them until the light said it was charged the batteries lasted about 5 minutes.
Nice camera. Internal digic5 processing a bit aggressive

Summary: Pros: Good quality. Great features. Great usability. Uses AA batteries. Versatile. Great for beginners. Cons: Eats batteries sometimes. I think the powerful flash is the reason. Will not do well with anything but Nimh rechargables.
Summary: I was all excited about getting the new Cannon SX160-IS during Black Friday. I was finally able to put the camera through its paces during CES to discover some issues: -Camera shutter button is too sensitive, looks like a general issue, not just mine. Lots of accidental shots.
Summary: While this is a terrific little camera.. i had formerly used a Cannon Elph and was very pleased with it until the focus 'went' on it. This seemed like a big step up... but a few things. In discreet mode you can't use the ISO adjustment which is rather critical for my needs.
