Does the job.

sph, Amazon
31 December 2014
  • Summary: like all canon products its a very capable camera. lots of functionality and good video. However since getting the fuji x100s, its been in the drawer gathering dust.

How did I land up paying £37 over the odds....

The Rambler, Amazon
4 January 2013
  • Summary: [...] came across the same camera for sale via Jessops for under £100......can't work out how I missed that... Also can I ask that it be made much clearer for non techi's if a memory card is required and which one!

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...

Avoid AUTO mode for better photographs

gadgetmad, Amazon
16 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...

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

jezzacooper, Amazon
16 July 2011
  • 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.

2 years (or just 25 days shy of anyway)

Miss M B Budloo, Amazon

  • 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.

Good photos but badly made camera and worthless warranty

GNW, Amazon
7 July 2011
  • Summary: The phots were good enough for my amateur liking but the camera itself is poorly made. The metal round the lens is soft so carrying the camera in my pocket made the metal deform and prevent the lens protector from moving properly when the camera is switched on and off.

SX220 - aweful on auto/program indoors and in dull conditions

Ian Beckett, Amazon
7 July 2011
  • Summary: Hi, Just bought a sx220 and was pretty disappointed. To be fair the reason i bought this was primarily to replace my ixus point and shoot with longer zoom, better image and video quality PLUS i went for this to get back a little to my SLR days when i have a little time to compose and play around a...
