You can't tell anything about a brand's reliability from posts on the internet. First, there aren't enough to be statistically significant. Second, the complaints themselves are not reliable. The New York Times reported that 1/3 of all user reviews are phoney. It's a good bet that many of these complaints are also phoney. Many honest complaints are really misunderstandings by inexperienced users and there is nothing wrong with the item.

This is true for all kinds of things, not just cameras.

The internet is every scammer's wildest dream come true. You cannot believe anything on the interenet without knowing the reliability of the source. Ask yourself if you would quote that source on a term paper.
