Poor Quality

elpalone, Canon
25 November 2014
  • Conclusion: With only about a dozen uses to take family photos, the whole front lense protection assembly literally fell off. I pressed the on button and the lense extends. At that moment the round lense cover cap fell off and the 4 little shutter covers that expand and contract with the opening or closing of the lense, literally fell off. Pretty shabby. Not pleased at all. I've had Canon cameras for decades. Never thought the quality of this product would be so low.

Item sent was not the kit pictured; and battery charger was removed from box!

  • Summary: This review is for the seller (BEACH CAMERA), not the actual camera. The package did not include the case or the tripod. Also, the Canon battery charger has been removed, and some other charger put in its place so I can't charge my camera! The charger included is for a car cigarette charger, and isn't even compatible with the camera! WHY would you take out the Canon charger? This has rendered the camera useless!!! I should have just bought the camera straight from Canon.

  • Summary: This did not meet my expectations. Very pixelated and poor quality. Spend the money and get a high quality camera if ur serious about film or photography. I like the canon rebel t5i!

Got a better picture on my $23 Crap camera!

Roman Deaton, Amazon
7 May 2014
  • Summary: All pictures are blurry and low quality. I took about 20 pictures. I thought I was doing something wrong. I took pictures on all settings and they all turned out like crap, blurry and low quality. I say the name canon and expected a quality product. Boy was I wrong. There is nothing good I can say about this camera. The pictures were blurred beyond recognition. None of the faces of the people I took pictures of turned out. DO NOT BUY THIS CAMERA. I feel scammed...

Is a horrible camera-do NOT buy this camera

  • Summary: I had an older digital camera that was only 6 megapixels. I was planning to go on vacation and wanted to upgrade. I bought this camera as I don't need anything fancy-just for some video and pics of my family. This camera described it to be much better than it actually is. Having 10 more megapixels than my old camera you would think the pics would come out much better. They were worse. Any motion made the picture blurry.

Very disappointed...

Anonymous, Canon
28 December 2013
  • Conclusion: PROS: Love the red, compact,very user friendly. Had everything up & running in 5 minutes. So easy to use. CONS: The LCD display is terribly grainy, & makes the entire camera useless, & total waste of money. I am really very disappointed. I must return for a refund & choose another brand. Can't take the chance a replacement PowerShot SX170 IS will be free from this problem.
  • Pros: Nice features/settings, Lightweight/Portable, Simple controls/menu, easy to use
  • Cons: Poor image quality, lcd display is horribly grainy., camera is useless

LOVE IT, EXCEPT....

Cynthia55, Amazon
27 December 2013
  • Summary: The LCD display is terrible! VERY grainy. Thought it was settings...no...bought the recommended card... So, you really can't tell if you have taken a great picture or not. Naturally....any of the other features don't matter. STILL I will tell you the pros: small, light-weight; comes with a battery & CHARGER. Charged very quickly. Was easy to set up.
