a little less than expected

Sara, Amazon
21 April 2014
  • 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. That was a big disappointment to me.

Baffled, need help...

Melinda, Amazon
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. I might have to send back? Any other recommendations for a beautiful picture camera, that is very easy to use? Would so appreciate some feedback.

Not impressed

Sunshine Lover, Amazon
5 August 2013
  • 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! The new Kodak is a lot easier to use (than the Canon) and the pics are much better quality. Too bad Kodak won't be making cameras anymore.

Crappy Batteries

Julie Grosch, Amazon

  • 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.

No kids and animal setting!

Patty, Amazon

  • Summary: With this camera there is a big chance the image of your kids will be blurry. I've been using the auto setting since there is no kids and pets setting. Not too happy.

Somewhat Disappointing

joseph, Amazon
17 January 2013
  • 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 - and it gobbles up AA batteries.

rechargeable battery

megan, Amazon
1 January 2013
  • 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. When I plugged the batteries in to recharge the charger said there was no charge and yet after charging about 15 minutes it said the batteries were charged. Again after couple of minutes of use the batteries died.

Nice camera. Internal digic5 processing a bit aggressive

Old geek, Amazon
10 December 2012
  • 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. You need a good charger and 8 batteries (two in camera, six backup) if you are going anywhere. And if you travel, you will need a car charger too. Internal Digix5 processing is horrendous.

User Review

el Pierro, DP Review
20 October 2012
  • Excerpt: Bought the camera on vacation and therefore had a nice opportunity to compare it with my old camera, the Canon Powershot SX100 IS. With the SX160 Canon has shown some improvements, but it's not the thing I hoped for, though of course the price tag indicates that a little bit. Design: The camera has gotten a bit more compact and therefore slightly easier to fit in a pocket, still it has a reasonably good grip.
