Its a great performing camera. Awesome shots. However, the idea of it being a good camera to throw in your pocket when you do not want to carry a DSLR is in question, given these errors. If you look on the web,m many of their p&s models are having some of this. I'm fine with using a hard case for it, but I ma highly careful with y cameras. I can assure you this camera was not dropped or hit in any way. When carried, it was in a full coverage padded shell. If it needs more than that, Canon just needs to say it.
As a reference, I have 2 SD1100IS cameras from a few years ago. My wife still uses one and I let my 2.5 year old use the other one for some very interesting viewpoints. He is terrible for it. It gets beat up and shows it. The body has dents and chips, but it works ike a charm. That was a $100 camera when I bought it. The S95 is $400. Mine broke twice without getting whacked. I'm concerned.
