Canon PowerShot S200
22 June 2011
Summary: Typically I would never have spent this much money on a camera but one of my favorite things to do is take pictures so I thought I would splurge and treat myself. This was not without plenty of research beforehand with the hopes of finding the perfect camera. I saw the great reviews for this camera on amazon so I figured I couldn't go wrong. Boy was I wrong...
Summary: Worked great for fourteen months and then the lens would not retract and it gives me the len's error code. I just sent it off for repair and am not happy to have to spend the money to fix it. Canon should have to recall this!!!! Someone should start a class action. This will be my last Canon product.
Summary: First have to start by saying the camera has experienced a known flaw in Canon software "lens error, restart camera" where the lens is in the open position and stays that way. At this point the camera is useless and becomes scrap. Unfortunately I have found out too late to avoid this purchase but certainly will avoid Canon products in the future. There are many claims and comments online having this same problem across multiple models of Canon products.
Summary: I bought this camera a year ago and loved it, but as the lens was opening the other day I got an error message saying "Lens error, restart camera". After some internet research it looks like this is a common problem that Canon knows about, but won't aknowledge. Looks like I am going to have to buy another $300 camera, but it won't be a Canon.
Summary: After only 5 months my this camera has quit working for me. I'm getting the now infamous "Lens Error, Restart Camera" message and apparently there is nothing Canon will do about it. I checked online to see if I might be able to fix the problem myself but all I found were other disgruntled buyers with the same issue. Very sad indeed. Anyway, just thought I would share this with everyone who was thinking of buying this camera.
Summary: Bought this camaera for my wife for Christmas It has never worked right. Cammera freezes in the open position and will not turn off until I removed the battery. Then we must recharge the battery and it will do it again after just a few pictures are taken. Never should have bought it .
