Too Soft to use

Walmart
13 June 2010
  • Summary: As a professional photographer, the appeal was extremely strong of having a lens that zoomed from very wide angle to a very telephoto lens. A twelve mega pixels image implies a very sharp image. Our business deals in part with pets. Upon running test shots with the camera when set on it highest reproductive settings at 200 mm equivalent settings, using strobe lights and tripod, we found the camera did not reproduce even the smallest amount of hair on the test dog in any...

Mushy Psssss

Amazon Customer "curlykale", Amazon
14 July 2011
  • Summary: Oh I had great hopes for this camera, long zoom, articulated screen......The image quality in anything less than bright sunlight is awful. In bright sunlight image quality is getting near to a budget DSLR but as light dims it becomes much worse than a normal compact. The zoom is amazing for it's size and works well. The articulated screen also does it's job and the videos are passable. BUT, shoot photos indoors or on a dull day and this camera stinks.

Twice Bad

Tony Criscuolo "Cristolfo", Amazon
2 July 2010
  • Summary: I was really looking forward to getting this as an upgrade to my Olympus SP550 UZ. When I tested the camera the stills worked fine, but on video it would only film for 15 seconds then shut down. If I pressed the video button again it filmed once more for only 15 seconds or even less. I phoned the technical help at Canon, and was told it was propably misfunctioning and should send it for repair.

otávio bueno, Bondfaro

  • Summary: Pelo valor no Brasil não acho que vale a pena comprar essa maquina. Nos EUA o valor dela e absurdamente mais barato, cerca de U$ 350,00.
  • Pros: A camera e boa, boa não otima. Tem algumas funções bem bacanas. Apesar de ser com pilhas elas duram muito, cerca de 1000 fotos +- O zoon e muito bom e torna a maquina bem versátil. O display giratório facilita muito o uso dela em algumas situações inusitadas.
  • Cons: Apesar de 12.1 mpixels as imagens ficam a desejar. A velocidade de processamento também, demora um pouco principamente quando tira uma foto com o obturador bem aberto. É necessário estudar um pouco para dominar todas as funções pois não são muito intuitivas. Pra quem procura uma camera para viajens e festas e uma pessima opção.

couleurs pas fidèles + problème de netteté

Tajar, Amazon
12 June 2010
  • Summary: Les commentaires élogieux sont à mon sens usurpé pour ce magnifique appareil dans la mesure que des fonctionnalités excellentes ne sont pas remplies. Les couleurs ne sont pas fidèles lorsque l'on utilise le flash ou même sans le flash lorsque vous avez un sujet d'une couleur très vive en même temps qu'un sujet d'une teinte plus claire. Le résultat sera un compromis des 2 tendances mais aucune couleur ne sera réellement respectée.
