Disappointed for close up photography

Kim M Berger "KimB", Amazon
5 February 2014
  • Summary: After reading the rave reviews on this camera, I have to say I'm very disappointed on the macro or up close photography. I bought this primarily for taking photos of my pottery for my web site, etsy site etc. Using the macro setting produces a curved distorted look to the item. I have tried a number of settings, changing my distances etc with no change. The colors are not the best either and they appear very fake.

MISLEADING IMAGE

william sumrall, Amazon
19 January 2014
  • Summary: IMAGE SHOWS A FULL SIZE CAMERA, ITS SMALL. CARRY CASE IS NOT FOR THIS CAMERA AND IS TO SMALL TO CARRY EVERYTHING NECESSARY TO OPERATE THE CAMERA. THE BIG TRIPODE IS THIN AND SHAKY. THE SMALL TRIPODE IS USELESS. THE CLEANING SOLUTION THAT CAME WITH IT CAME OPEN IN THE BOX. EVERYTHING WAS WET. I WAS INTENDING ON BUYING A FULLSIZE CAMERA NOT A SMALL DIGITAL CAMERA.

Not quite what I expected

  • Summary: Takes great pictures....if the subject is standing completely still. I took this to a concert and it was really tough to get a good still shot. It took great looking video, but the audio sounds terrible. On the plus side, the zoom feature works nicely.

Not as good as I hoped for.

TundraMac, Amazon
24 January 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this camera to replace an aging Kodak. The price and the style of camera were what drew me to this camera. My old 5mp camera (built like this camera) was showing it's age by being slow to focus in auto and sometimes not flashing when required. I suspect the electronic controls in my Kodak are starting to fail. All of the Reviews I read said the 16mp Cannon Powershot SX500is would take great pictures and it came with a 30X zoom.

Image quality very poor

Darina, Amazon
28 December 2012
  • Summary: We are grateful to Amazon for the ability to return this camera. The focusing screen was never "in focus;" the quality of the images was very poor, even using the fine quality jpeg option. Tremendous amount of noise at all ISO numbers, shutter lag made it impossible to take multiple photos. We are semi-pro photographers, and needed the camera for quick snapshots. We are Canon camera enthusiasts, but not for this model. Perhaps ours was defective?

Very sexy and light camera. Very impressive stabilization

  • Summary: The beginner will most likely not notice any problem but, but a bit skilled photographer should avoid it. It is just expensive toy .
  • Pros: Very impressive stabilization to take fully zoomed pictures and videos from hand.
  • Cons: Very bad fringe on picture edges. Auto mode unreliable

Disappointed

  • Summary: The cheap CCD senor is big drawback in this camera for this price range. Im wondering why canon did not use CMOS sensor which would have increased the image quality in low light conditions and also faster FPS performance

  • Summary: купили данный аппарат когда ехали в отпуск с мужем. очень разочарованы качеством фотографий. как не пытались настроить, но результаты нулевые. качественную фотографию  получить можно, но придется попотеть. для этого нужно создать идеальные условия. очень плохо передает цвета. все бледное и бесцветное.  не советовала бы данную модель.
  • Pros: красивый внешний вид.
  • Cons: качество фотографий оставляет желать лучшего. цветопередача никакая. четкость  фотографий тоже хромает на обе ноги.
