Poor quality!

Monkey in the middle!, Amazon
24 March 2014
  • Summary: If you have a lot of time and are looking for some extra work and a headache then this camera is for you!! I purchased this camera in October 2013 and I've already sent it in for repair twice. The first time, the LCD screen malfunctioned and the second time it just suddenly wouldn't power on. I had to pay to ship it to the repair center both times and it took close to two weeks until I got it back. This is not what I expected from Canon.

Not what I thought

  • Summary: I looked through a lot of reviews and this came highly rated. However after using it for some weeks now I think a camera that cat under $100 would be probably better then this. It is very slow to actually take the shot making for missed poses. Indoor shots can be grainy. The best shots I found are macro outdoor shots. If I hadn't have kept it for so long before actually trying it out I would have sent it back.

Great camera, lousy lens protector

  • Summary: This is an absolutely great camera. It has a wonderful ultra-zoom, takes great pictures, does excellent video, is easy to use, and even has a GPS which works about as well as one can expect for a GPS. The only problem is its lens protection mechanism. I received one of these for Christmas. By mid-January the lens protector flaps were sagging and would not open all the way. I returned the camera to Amazon and got another.

User Review

RHPont, DP Review

  • Excerpt: A great camera for an all- round compact. Took a while to get used to the focussing lag - HOWEVER - Despite lowering LCD brightness and switching off GPS I am often getting only 60 exposures from a fully charged battery... I carry 2 batteries - and am getting perhaps 100 to 120 exposures... I often take3 to 400 a day I am reverting to my SX with AA batteries... VERY disappointing...

Good features, if you can find them.

  • Summary: This camera has great quality pictures in the auto mode. Three big problem areas: 1. If is impossible to hold on to when you are taking pictures. The rght hand slips off if trying to hold it while selecting features. I did solve most of this problem with a stick-on handle from Flipbac. If you place your left hand on the camera to hold it while shooting, you either: cover the flash so it won't open, cover the speaker, or cover the GPS antenna.

Canon SX230 marginal benefits for $

ceztom2, epinions.com
26 July 2011
  • Summary: There must be something better out there...maybe the Panasonic zooms?
  • Pros: Bigger, heavier than SD790, due to zoom probably, but will fit in pocket
  • Cons: Auto exposure, dynamic range, battery life, ergonomics, screen size, touchy playback dial

Defective Batch???

L. Lum, Amazon
2 July 2011
  • Summary: So I won't go into detail on why I chose this camera...basically the same reasons as most. I received my new camera and LOVED it. Great looking photos, easy operation, impressive features...the works. Then, a couple of weeks later, the automatic lens cover got stuck and wouldn't open or close all the way (with no abuse, I was very careful with it). I thought it must be a fluke. I returned the camera to Amazon for a replacement.
