    Canon Fell Short On This One - I love Canon too

    We upgraded from our Canon PowerShot SX720 HS 20.3 MP Compact Digital Camera - 1080p a camera our whole family truly loved. Great photos, excellent video, and very easy to operate. We still have this camera and love it. One of the reasons I upgraded was I could use the same batteries I already had with the new camera. The good is this camera looks and feels great. Comes with an upgraded processor, 4k video and timelapse and a ton of bells and whistles. That is about where the good stops and the bad starts. With the upgraded processor it seems to have some lag from when the shutter is pressed and when the image is taken. Big problem, I am trying to capture action and you really have to adjust your timing, but that is just the start. The 4k video in a bright room was grainy and almost unwatchable - i didn't even share any of the dozen or so videos I took because they are so far from the quality I am used to. The focus on the video is another huge problem. It had trouble and would keep adjusting the focus during recording also adding to make these unwatchable. The photos also leave a lot to be desired. I tried every mode and auto and the same result. Grainy, unfocused, even in good light. Low light forget it. The 4k timelapse was okay, it takes 24 minutes to make a 24 second clip and that was okay. The photos/video just did not cut it for the pricetag. I took this back. I may buy another of the camera I bought this one to replace. I returned this unit for the video/photo quality - out of focus, grainy, even in good light. Check other reviews and judge for yourself - better yet go try one in person before buying to help avoid yourself the trouble of a return.

    Disappointing

    I have bought multiple Canon cameras - both high end and point-and-shoot - and had high expectations for this camera. However, turned out to be very disappointing. The colors were muted and not sharp. The autofocus was not very accurate, with still shots frequently blurry. The camera has a lot of features, but without the basic right, these are not very valuable.

    Hi there, I bought this camera for my kid sister as a Christmas present. She was so excited when she saw it, only to turn it on and it won’t turn on. No light or any indicator that it even works. We tried charging the battery and it indicated full, yet it won’t turn on. So disappointed. Will be returning it after the holiday. Thanks.
