Disappointing lens cover system.
on 16 May 2017
A good little travel camera, that is both versatile and compact, but I keep having problems with the lens cover/inter-leaving screen which constantly jams due to minuscule motes of dust, etc ... or when under the slightest pressure it becomes deformed and refuses to open or close!. This is the third Canon compact that I have had that has done this and its a right pain because to get the camera repaired almost costs as much to replace it ... making it very, very poor value for money. I did send two of my cameras in to Canon as evidence of a possible design weakness they may care to use to improve their lens cover system, but all I got was a letter saying my cameras were not covered by their repair programme and a denial of any responsibility (as if by admitting that my idea might be worth following up, they might be opening themselves up to some sort of claim). As far as I can tell Canon are still using the same system as my latest camera is now struggling with the same problem!
