I have had many, all Canon , my latest sd1400 is always dead and I have tried new batteries from cheap ebay to a genuine canon, it will work fine if you install the battery and go shoot but leave it for 1 day and dead!

My little 2mp elph was a great camera till it just died.... the sd 1000 lost its lcd , the waterproof d10 was horrible for its size and perfomance not to mention the focal length was crap.


Today my sd1400 said lens error so I smashed it on the sidewalk!


Any suggestions on a good p&s??


my gear Canon 7D, Canon 5DMK2, 70-200 f2.8 IS, 50mm f1.8, canon 430 speedlight, canon 17-55 2.8 IS, canon 100mm macro sigma 10-20, Canon 17-85 , 60 cokin filters , 2x telecoverter.

I'd lean on that healthcare system you have in Canada and ask for some good meds...

:D

You must be very hard on your camera that is why they don't want to be yours no more.:rolleyes:

This surprises me. The only Canon powershot that ever died on me was a SD450 when the lens was attacked with lateral forced while extended.

Maybe you have a problem with water/humidity entering the camera? That would explain why the batteries drain quickly, a latent shortcut in there?


My imagine composition sucks. I need a heavier lens.

No water / humidity problems here, I may fix it if I get around to it, my 5dmk2 and nifty fifty are my new p&s now.

Try an anger management class, and until then, keep away from any cameras, even if they only cost $200. You have psychological problems that need help.

I take good care of my real cameras, i am just fed up with these little error reading pieces of crap, I have spent more that a new 7D worth on small P&S cameras that always seem to have a problem when I go to use them.

My friend spent $400 on a waterproof camera for his holiday and it died befor his plane landed!!

I really think that pop out lenses are to blame for alot of problems....??

You're right, that's the number one problem or most likely problem that may occur that I've heard... however I've owned many P&S's and had no issues...lucky I guess

I totally misunderstood this thread title. It says "Done with Canon point and shoot cameras" I thought it was going to show some amazing pictures that looked like DSLR quality.

Oops.


Thank you. bw!

If you want them to last longer, you have to stop smashing them on the sidewalk.


Thank you. bw!

All I can think of is how the OP's cameras go to the camera-owners-on-the.net forum and complain that they are DONE with this owner.
