2 years (or just 25 days shy of anyway)

  • Summary: that's how long the CCD in this thing has lasted. Now every photo has a grey line across it, about a third of the way down. (pentax optio S5i and Kodak 1285 both lasted longer iirc) up until I just noticed, mind, this camera has been brilliant, hence 3 stars.

Works well, but only for a couple of years. Spend more on something newer

  • Summary: Having had a Canon for 2 years, dropped it and it continued to work perfectly, I therefore did not look at any camera not made by Canon when the time came to upgrade. I decided on this model and fell in love with it, pictures were great quality and the camera was easy to use.

Image quality lacking

F. C. Averis, Amazon
3 July 2012
  • Summary: I bought this camera from Amazon just over a year ago after reading many glowing reviews on-line. Alas it has not lived up to that reputation. My main gripe is the relatively poor image resolution. Close ups are not too bad are fairly sharp but the rest shows a soft image.

Canon Warranty

Gmick "Megaroot 66", Amazon
16 November 2011
  • Summary: The Powershot SX220 HS does take good pictures, but for me the Canon Warranty lets it down. I had the camera for about 6 weeks when i noticed the lens cover would not fully open or close, and because i've had the camera over 30 days amazon did not want to know, so i contacted canon support which was...

  • Summary: I spent a weekend with the camera and never managed to get a proper grip on it as its covered with buttons and dials so you can't hold on to it...

slow focus and shame about the battery

greenmantle, Amazon
10 July 2011
  • Summary: This is the first Canon I've owned. I bought it after considering a Panasonic TZ20, mainly because it seemed better designed and easier to hold, and reviews flattered it. I was upgrading from a Casio EX-Z750 chiefly because I wanted something with a wider angle lens and more telephoto capability.

Canon Power Shot sx220 HS

K. Slater, Amazon
10 July 2011
  • Summary: I recently took this camera on a holiday to Australia. I also had a rather similar specification Nikon camera with me, costing about half the Canon price. I could not see a lot of difference between the two for general holiday use, except that the Canon performed better in low light conditions.

Avoid AUTO mode for better photographs

gadgetmad, Amazon
10 July 2011
  • Summary: I was extremely frustrated with the results I achieved with this camera using the AUTO mode. I even wondered if the focusing system was faulty. Only when I analysed the EXIF photo information did I notice that the camera was defaulting to very high ISO (1600) in most cases unless the lighting...

Not as good as I was hoping for

A. E. Dix "Angela Dix", Amazon
6 July 2011
  • Summary: I was surprised at how plastic the camera is but more than that I am worried at how many out of focus pictures I get on Auto. My old Canon IXUS 90 IS never let me down and was metal cased. It was only old age that made me change it as I do take many pictures.
