Customer Review

on 5 March 2014
I've always bought Canon cameras, you might pay a little extra for the name but 9 times out of 10 it's worth it for the great quality you get.
As a general use camera this is OK, it takes a decent photo and has good zoom.
However, when you come to use it in water it has several negative points:-
1. The lens is right at the top corner of the camera meaning if you're not in the water yourself, you need to submerge your whole hand, with camera, to get a shot. When you do this you can no longer see the screen on the rear of the camera so have no idea what the camera is looking at. This might be fine for diving or swimming, but if you're rockpooling or stood by the edge of a pond and want a shot then forget it. All other Canon cameras I have have the lens in the middle so why Canon put this one at the top I don't know.
2. The camera is waterproof, the strap isn't. Nice thinking on the part of Canon to supply a textile strap on a camera designed to be used in water.
3. The macro is rubbish. Considering I have about 3 'point and click' Canon digital cameras, all of which have very good macro, the macro on this fails dismally in comparison.
