Imagine my disappointment when I presented this camera to my daughter as a graduation gift this afternoon and all we see on the screen is "snow". It's broken. I am beyond angry.
I actually purchased the camera in December as a Christmas gift, but decided to get her a laptop for Christmas and save the camera for graduation. It's been in its original packaging, never touched. We put the batteries in, turned it on, set the date (that part works) but there is nothing but "snow" on the
on the screen. Hope I can get a replacement or my money back (since I'm not sure I want another.).

Good for the price
Good quality for the price but not perfect. Poor low light performance for videos (good for photos) and battery eater.

The compact package makes it easy to handle anywhere. The zoom gets in nice and close to get the details. The HD video adds versatility and eliminates the need to carry two cameras. The pixel quality is at the top. Unfortunately, the battery life only gets you around 20 pictures, and you need to have spare sets on hand. The software is a little difficult to navigate and save pictures to disc.

Worst Canon Product purchased
Purchased this camera 10/2012. For 2 months, it worked fine. Now, every time I turn it on, I have to reset the date as it goes back to 00/00/2012, time is 00:00 and zone does not show . I have missed many photo opportunities because of this. All of my photos are kept in date folders and it is important for the date I set to hold. This is my 5th Canon camera and very disappointed with this one.
