User Review

MajBach, DP Review
5 September 2011
  • Excerpt: I purchased this camera almost a month ago, virtually based entirely on ratings and samples from this site (including the 230 HS) and without doing my homework at all. After reviewing the pictures I took today, I will be returning this camera. I've been a very happy user of a Canon 710 IS for several years now. As a matter of fact, until owning this camera, I didn't care for anything Canon.

Review after 6 months usage...

D. Fisher, Amazon
14 June 2012
  • Summary: Having owned an IXUS 100, I purchased this for the high ISO (indoor/dark area pics) and the far reaching optical zoom so I don't have to haul the DSLR on some trips. So having used it for 6 months: + Good image quality, although contrast does need some boosting + Good features in creative modes (miniature effect etc) + Good zoom, soft at either end but it's not a DSLR + Easy to use - Battery life; my other cameras I would take on week+ holiday and not need to charge...

Disappointed, grainy photos in poor light

dj, Amazon
17 January 2012
  • Summary: I am so disappointed with my new Canon PowerShot SX 220 HS. When my old Canon PowerShot A720 IS refused to fire its flash, rather than pay for repairs, I decided to buy a new Canon camera hoping for even better photographs. After reading all the reviews I chose the Canon Powershot SX 220 HS. I bought the camera in early December 2011 allowing me enough time to acquaint myself with the camera before the Christmas festivities and visiting grandchildren.

Not a handy camera

Old Harry "Oldest Swinger", Amazon
27 December 2011
  • Summary: I buy a new digital every year and when I read the spec on this one i thought this was it.It is a pain in the ass camera No Manual so you unload and print out 216 pages. A lot of use when your out in the rain trying to decide the best method for this or that shot and believe me there are many choices, MOST first shots indoors have to be taken over again thats right your grip if you are right handed naturally stops the flash arising.

unsealed lens

Mnason, Amazon
7 September 2011
  • Summary: This camera has some very good points. The CMOS sensor is fantastic - great colours and great in low light. The flash doesn't pop up if you keep your finger on it so not a problem. The wide angle and zoom are great and I was very enthusiastic about this camera at first, however I sent it back within 7 days after finding a large foreign body inside the lens which I presumed must have been there when I got it (and incidentally I suspected it had been used when I received...

Habe von dieser Kamera mehr erwartet....

Claudia Wildner, Amazon
16 November 2012
  • Summary: Ich habe diese Kamera im Februar gekauft und bin sehr enttäuscht. Von daher kann ich sie leider nicht weiter empfehlen. Was mich daran stört ist folgendes: - Der Automatikmodus dauert eine Ewigkeit bis er sich einstellt. Selbst wenn ich nur eine Makroaufnahme machen möchte, was bei der Nähe des Objektives zum Motiv eigentlich sofort klar sein sollte, überspringt er ständig die Makroeinstellung, wechselt zu "Sonnig" bis "Automatisch" und ich muss sehr lange warten, bis...
