Customers Report That it is Expensive

Two customers wrote that the product was not good value for money.

  • Its value is questionable as Canon markets an identical camera with image stabilization for only $10 more…
  • The price difference isn't worth sacrificing the image stabilization…
    Cnet.com August 2012
  • As one other review says, because technology has moved on so much you get a lot of special affects and stuff for a great price…
