Irritated by one thing
on August 29, 2014
I like this camera - it's easy to work, pictures and video look good (not if you're used to a dslr, but this is NOT a dslr) for a point and click camera. It came with a manual (some people said they didn't get one? Talk to the seller - this camera comes with a manual, and it is easy to read). VERY easy to download pic/videos to the computer. I have not used the wireless feature, simply because I couldn't care less. My one and only complaint is the battery. My husband bought me this camera in December, and by June the battery wouldn't hold charge for longer than 10 minutes. Bought a replacement on amazon (not canon, halcyon - impossible to find a canon replacement apparently) and it's just as bad. Had it for less than 2 months, and now the new battery is doing the same thing. If you get lucky and get a decent battery, this is a great buy. Otherwise, beware, and make sure you fully charge before any event, and know you may have to charge mid-event as well.
11/18/14 update...I mailed my camera in to Canon for evaluation after reading a service advisory sent to me by a Canon employee. Despite this service advisory put out BY Canon that describes the EXACT problem I am having, they are refusing to fix it (also, the advisory states very clearly, if your camera has these problems, it will be fixed and sent back to you free of charge). Instead, I've been offered a refubrished one for $90. I cannot recommend Canon to anyone at this point. A company that cannot stand behind their warranties, or even their public advisory notices, is not a company I'm willing to give my money to. Too bad - I really loved that camera.
