  • Summary: I owned this three months. I hit the ON button by accident while it was in its case. The zoom lens popped open then shut now it WONT open at all. I contacted Canon and they wanted $175 to fix it. The gears inside he lens are CHEAPLY made. DO NOT BUY THIS CAMERA.

Canon PowerShot S200

soxgirl, Amazon

  • 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.

Fourteen Months And Then Lens Error.

Bobby L. Ready "bready", Amazon
21 June 2011
  • 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.

Good at first..

NY Dad, Amazon
23 May 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this camera about 2 years ago. At first it was great, easy to use, good battery life, nice size, good pics, etc. After about 6 months while on vacation I went to turn it on and I got a "lens error" warning and the camera wouldn't power up.

Sx200 lasted about 20 months and now DOA

W. Lindstrom, Amazon
7 March 2011
  • 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.

Dissapointed

Patrick Clancy, Amazon
10 August 2010
  • 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.

Avoid This Camera

Gary, Amazon
6 April 2010
  • Summary: These cameras have a design flaw in the lens. After some period of time, you will get a "Lens Error" and the camera will be dead. Mine lasted just under 90 days. Now I'm in warranty hell. I send it in, they pull a beat-up camera off the shelf and send it, and it lasts for a few weeks or months.
