  • Excerpt: Without a doubt the worst camera I ever had.  Jerky zoom, poor image quality.  Luckily backed  up over it in parking lot and flattened it.  Marked the end any future Canon purchases.

How I would love to give this camera a higher rating

flymfly, Amazon

  • Summary: How I would love to give this camera a higher rating. The photos are really fantastic. BUT the low battery indicator that shuts the camera off randomly completely ruins this camera's reliability (you can't take great pictures if the camera has no power).

Good camera hampered by bugs and design

Scott Lee, Amazon
5 June 2014
  • Summary: I was super excited to get this camera as it has a fantastic zoom lens and Canon performance. These things lived up to my expectations. Unfortunately, several things about this camera take a lot of the fun out of using it. First, there is a persistent bug with zooming during shooting video.

Major problem: power button where shutter release should be.

RheumDoc, Amazon
23 May 2014
  • Summary: Ergonomically poor design. I frequently turned the camera off when trying to push the shutter release. Very frustrating, especially when you want to take a "quick grab" photo. Hard to grip. Flash pops up where I would normally put my left index finger.

Great travel zoom camera (if you don't need to take videos)

David Barratt, Amazon
7 May 2014
  • Summary: This camera is great. We decided to replace on older, very inexpensive, point and shoot so that we could better capture pictures and videos of our kids as they grow. Our older camera could never capture the frantic movements of our kids in focus.

Great in add-on features but bad in the areas where it matters most

Vikram Tatavarthi, Amazon

  • Summary: I like the picture quality, the Wi-Fi feature, the video quality, the flash etc etc...But what's the use when the battery system is so bad that it doesn't allow you take any videos at all. I am having the same problem as the others have mentioned in this forum already.

BATTERY ISSUE STILL EXISTS!!!!!

Ron Sr, Amazon
18 January 2014
  • Summary: I have had this only a week and I am returning it and replacing it with a Canon SX260 HS. I took the camera to Disney and went through 3 batteries and could only get 15 minutes max of video time on a fresh battery. Still images were not a problem.

Disappointing

Michelle Engeln, Amazon
17 January 2014
  • Summary: This camera had trouble with focusing. It was on the highest pixels and still was putting out a small, poor quality pictures. I usually love cannon but not this camera. It may have been a defective one. The reviews were all so great....I was hoping I would feel the same way.
