User Review

wmussatto, DP Review

  • Excerpt: Lens guard developed dimples after 4days of use. Won't completely close. If you press, gently on it, it feels like paper. The cover over the lens won't completely close so its back in the shop. Luckily I had a all hazards warranty. Made mistake of putting it in front pants pocket with the strap attached. Guess the strap dented it. GPS would not lock on in the middle of the back yard (15 minutes on a stool) where a Garmin will lockup in 2 minutes.

Awful

Natasha, Amazon
10 February 2013
  • Summary: Although it does produce great quality photos I have been unable to enjoy them as it consistently deletes photos at random and has a memory card errors. Not only this it also takes a ridiculous amount of time for it to turn on and to take a picture. I would not recommend.

Steer clear of Canon Ixus in my experience.

diy3@dircon.co.uk, Amazon
26 August 2012
  • Summary: I wont be buying Canon Ixus again! This week my second Ixus seized up with exactly the same ailment as my first. Canon you have a problem ! My Ixus 230HS has seized with the lens unable to retract and an error message on the screen. Obviously Canon will repair it (for slightly more than the camera cost?). The sad thing is that this Canon Ixus failure is identical to failure of my Ixus 980IS a couple of years ago. Identical problem.

This camera is shocking

jabaxteronline, Amazon

  • Summary: This supposedly 'family friendly' point and shoot, "so easy to use you must get it for your grannie" camera produces images so grainy, smeared, toneless and colourless that you'll still be screaming at it long after your friends have snapped the shot on their Lumix and happily wandered away. Here's what Cannon had to say when I complained: "Mr Baxter, Thank you for your e-mail and for contacting Canon.

CAMERA NOT INTENDED FOR THE UK. UK DO NOT BUY FROM THIS SUPPLIER!

Chris Jones, Amazon
14 August 2012
  • Summary: On receipt of this camera the box had been already opened, the camera was covered in finger prints and scuff marks, there was no UK/English manual, there was a cheap plastic adapter for the european plug supplied. Clearly Fonz Mania are selling cameras which were not originally intended for the UK.

Schlechte Entscheidung!

Ria, Amazon
5 April 2014
  • Summary: Diese Kamera ist die schlechteste die ich je gekauft habe. Sie macht nur unscharfe Bildern, die noch dazu farblos grau aussehen! Kinder oder Tiere kann man kaum fotografieren; bei bewegten Objekten kriegt man keinen richtigen Shot hin. Nach ein paar Monaten habe ich versucht die Kamera bei Amazon zurückzuschicken. Das war leider nicht mehr möglich. Ich müsste mich an den Hersteller wenden.

Bilder auf Handykamera Niveau

sofakoenigstiger, Amazon
25 September 2012
  • Summary: Ich könnte auch was Positives über diese Kamera sagen. Wenn aber, die Bildqualität verheerend ist, ist für mich jeder andere Kommentar überflüssig. Unscharf, bei kleinster Vergrößerung verpixelt, dazu noch überbelichtet und bei weniger Licht rauscht es gewaltig. Welche Kamera haben all die 5-Sterne Bewerter hier vorher gehabt, dass sie mit dieser Canon zufrieden sind. Eine aus dem Kaugummi-Automaten? Ich habe den Support kontaktiert.
