On the face of it this camera is a cheap and cheerful 'point and shoot' compact. Picture quality is absolutely fine considering the price of this unit. Canon say the battery life is sufficient for 400 shot using NiMH cells, this is not the case. Problems: Very poor battery life, new 2000mAh NiMH cells typically last 35 - 40 shots. This problem is not that the batteries are discharged through eavy power consumption, but that the camera is intolerant of low operating voltages such as those ...

I bought one for me 10 year old daugther and she's enjoyed it for the last 2 years. It gets very rough treatment and it just doesn't break. She surprises me everytime with the quality of pictures. I am and will always be a Canon fan Problems: None whatsoever

Excellent "pocket" digital for when DSLR too cumbersome, bought on impulse at half price on a discount website, has been an outstanding success. The built in flash seems to adjust to range/conditions just like my EOS' Speedlight Problems: Nil encountered

Bought 2 units, 1 already out of order after 1 month of use, had to send back for repair. Not happy about this model. Would stick with Panasonic cameras as they seem better built. My first canons of this type - would be my last too... :( Would not recommend it to anyone. I asked Canon to replace it with a better model but they refuse, even if I offered to pay for the difference. Problems: Battery running out very quickly Easily broken slow when flash recharging Low value for money

Bought for my mother! I found the LCD sure does the no justice for the camera. High ISO noise... In Auto, the Camera just focuses where ever it wants. And i found the buttons to be kind of loose and cheap... Get what you pay for... Problems: No

I bought the 480 for day to day use when bring a DSLR would not be easy or too high a risk. (Motorcycle trip) This is a simple point and shoot camera with a great senor on it. I was stunned at the pictures that this little camera can capture. It is simple to use and strait forward. The fact that it runs on AA Batteries is also a feature that I was looking for. Problems: I have had only one problem and this was a lens error. Something with the gears inside. The unit was swapped out with out ...
