I love their products, but Canon's rebate policy is not good. I wish they would provide instant rebates during purchase, instead customers need to mail it in by a provided date. I moved and delivered my 5th baby boy, so I did not send it in on time. Canon would not honor the rebate. I purchased a Canon EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR Camera with 24-105mm f/4L II Lens for $3,999.00 and only purchased a printer with it because the rebate offered when purchased together. I lost $250. I believe this is not the best customer service. Nikon and Sony have gained a new customer.
If you are like me, here is your situation: you’ve steadily accrued several Canon EOS cameras: Rebel, T3, T5i, 80D... and as each one has improved over the other, hour photos have gotten better as well. Along the way you’ve accumulated several EF lenses for Canon full frame cameras that also fit on your APS-C Canon cameras. You even have several nice flashes, tripods, cases, and memory cards. But, you want to take it to the next level.
You want to go full frame for a few reasons. 1) The photo is just plain better - no getting around that. 2) You want those EF lenses to be used to their full potential. 3) Time has come to move away from simple amateur status... you have to keep moving forward. You hesitate for a few reasons: 1) The 5D models and 1D are just too expensive. 2) You are not a pro... yet. 3) You have grown accustomed to using a viewfinder that pivots and swivels so you can take pictures close to the ground and way overhead... but those cameras do not have that feature. 4) You don’t want a heavy camera.
Enter the Canon 6D Mark II. It is THE least expensive new full frame camera from Canon. It is THE only full frame Canon camera with articulating screen. It is THE Canon camera that is actively billed as the stepping stone between amateur and pro. It is THE lightest full frame camera from Canon. It is THE least expensive full frame camera from Canon. And... it takes great photos. I am so happy I made the switch. I can use those great lenses to their greatest ability. I have a full frame camera. It is light. It has great quality. And I can use it the same way I used my older cameras with articulating screen. Five stars.
I'm feeling a bit disappointed in Canon. I purchased the refurbished EOS Rebel T6 EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II Lens Kit on Friday 11/30 for $320.99 and the impression given was that it was an extended Cyber Monday deal. However, today, Monday 12/3, it's $267.49 for the same exact camera! I called customer service and told them it was a 53.50 and they only gave me a $50 credit back that they said could take a full billing cycle to get. I had to call back again to get the price difference of 53.50 which I still have to wait for. It's just crazy how deceptive the pricing was and how I had to waste time calling customer service about it.
I am so upset that my second Canon EOS 70D froze and died in the middle of taking a friend's picture. The first one that froze and died, people told me it would cost as much to fix as it would to buy a new one. So I put it in a box and bit the bullet to buy another 70D. I used it with my very expensive autofocus macro lens. Now I'm totally bummed not knowing what to do to again take pictures. I have spent a lot of hard earned money on these two bodies and again am dead in the water without a good camera. I sure a H don't want to spend money on another Canon 70D.
I have been in the professional photography field for so many years. I discouraged about behavior by Canon people for so many years since they screwed up with FD series lenses because they preferred with EF series that cost customers by triple or more because of unnecessary features. Since the nature of my work forced me to spent thousands of dollars into the pocket of Canon. My work needs a 50mm macro which I tried with 100mm and 180mm were not successful. I discovered the EF 50mm f/2.5 Compact Macro lens disappeared from the market. I learned it was unexpectedly discontinued from the market two years ago. Canon representative stated it was removed from the market 18 years ago. That was not true.
I discovered they tried to push the consumer to purchase a TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro lens because it improved over the EF 50mm f/2.5 lens. I shocked to hear the representative's behavior because of the EF50mm f/2.5 Compact Macro cost around 300 dollars compared with the TS-E 50mm F/2.8 Macro Lens cost $2200 in the market. They were NOT the same lenses because of the EF Macro weight much lighter while TS-E was very heavy. Also, the EF Macro can much closer but not the TS-E.
Also, who wants Tilt-Shift feature in TS-E. Million of professional photographers will not buy it because it was totally unnecessary. In fact, Canon put a lot of money and time into TS-E lenses. Right now, the EF 50mm f/2.5 Compact Macro is very high demand in the market but Canon refused to make it again as force them to buy the TS-E and earn windfall profit from the customers. You have to speak out with complaint toward Canon and even Nikon for their failure to put back the 50mm macro and Life Size converter back the market. Thank you.

I have been using my Canon 5DS R for 3 years now and have had nothing but a great experience with it. The quality of photos I get are outstanding and the size of the images helps me achieve large prints close to the expensive medium format cameras out there, Canon makes great cameras, and backs their products with responsive customer service.
Camera was fine until it began with that lens error it's famous for. Now it will take about three pictures, then shuts off. Forget about taking videos with this camera. I'm trying to find a camera without a pop-out lens but they are rare.
I love my camera for action shots. My camera knowledge is limited but my camera allows me to take pictures that look professional. Best part is putting it on sport setting and snapping away.
Bought Canon A2500 camera several years ago. Shutter button fell off. Asked Canon for replacement part. Canon does not provide/sell replacement parts (how they get away with that I do not know). Received Canon email telling me to send in camera and I would get a rebuilt one for $39. I sent camera to Canon. They sent camera back saying they do not make the A2500 anymore nor do they have any rebuilt ones. Canon now says they will sell me different rebuilt model for $89. Very clear case of bait and switch. CEO of Canon needs to be brought up on fraud charges in USA court. FRAUD - FRAUD - FRAUD - ALERT!!! **DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM CANON. They are only for themselves and padding multi-million dollar salary of CEO. They do not care about customers. Join forces - boycott ANYTHING made by Canon. Put them out of business.
I have Canon 6D. I have face the problem of almost hang up this device. So I take my camera Canon service center. They return after 15 days my camera and they says, "Your camera will be ok." But I face same problem again. So I requested to all do not purchase Canon camera. I suggest Sony cameras better than Canon camera. Service and all. If you have any query then you can call me **.
I purchased a Canon point and shoot camera with a great zoom lens. The quality of the camera exceeds my expectations. The quality of the images is amazing and the camera was easy to learn how to use. Love Canon and will always purchase Canon cameras.
I was initially very pleased with Canon sx720 HS camera but I had what I thought was minor issue. In taking pictures in dark environments I noticed that there was a 2 to 4 second delay in the shutter. I called Canon as was told they would fix it no prob. I sent it in and several weeks later it was returned to me with a note saying it was operating with normal parameters. I called again and was basically told I was out of luck. So I am back to taking family photos like in the 1800s where everyone has to hold still for the photo, I also own a T3 rebel and a 60D. Good cameras but I will not be buying any more Canon products because they do not seem to want to stand behind their product.
I had a Canon Powershot A430, which I purchased 12 odd years ago. Although outdated, it took marvelous photographs, and proved itself when I took posed pictures of my step-daughter, as she and her two best friends were about to leave for their prom. The camera went missing during a move from one province to another, and I ended up purchasing another AA battery make through a local retail outlet. Although possessing more pixels, it wasn't the same and is now a backup, but I did manage to purchase another A430 online through eBay. This camera is like hen's teeth now, rare and worth its weight in gold.
Just bought a Canon a month or so ago and excited about it. Lens cap not working/malfunctioning already. They Will Not fix but will replace with another camera for 89 bucks!! Canon, a mistake... a mistake I don't plan on making again.
The Canon M series is definitely a bang for the buck! And with the adapter for lenses, the high quality imagery has no limits. It is light, compact and easy to use. The screen for functions has many options with an easy understanding and a sharp quality of font, which other cameras may not have.
Canon SL1: image quality is very good; not full frame, though. But it is a cheap DSLR and the lightest one made, so it is easy to keep with us when we travel. I bought one for my wife, and liked it so much I bought one for myself!
I'm on my second Canon PIXMA. The present one is 12 years old and still functioning perfectly. Took a class to learn how to use more of its features and don't regret that. However, since my Android phone camera lets me edit on it, I tend to use that more now.
Long time Canon user with a variety of types of cameras from point and shoot to SLRs and find the lens quality excellent and ease of use good, logical and intuitive.
I have had a Power Shot SX 40 HS for 3+ years. The camera is light enough to carry comfortably, reasonably intuitive and takes excellent pictures for someone who is not accustomed to taking pictures regularly.
Tried multiple times to follow video instructions to connect PowerShot ELPH 190IS. Downloaded programs onto my computer. All attempts to import photos from camera failed. Video instructions don't match my camera's menu. I have Windows 10; only instructions on website mention Windows 8. My computer says I can import photos; cannot. Established Canon accounts to no avail. Have wasted hours on this thankless process. Do NOT buy a Canon digital camera which is supposed to be "simple." This camera was a gift. Luckily, I only have a handful of photos on it. Will go back to using my cell phone, which at least makes photos accessible to me, instead of trapped inside a useless camera.
I just purchased a Canon Ti5 plus an extra zoom lens. After just a few uses the rim of the lens broke off preventing the lens cover from staying on. This, I was told was under the year warranty when I called customer support. Having only had the lens for a few months I send it in to be repaired. I was sent a bill for $123.00 and told that it was not under warranty. I have not mishandled the lens in any way clearly indicating that the issue is a manufacture defect and should be repaired under the year warranty that was indicated when purchased. Don't be fooled by the sweet tech people when they say there is a warranty on the products you buy from Canon. This is far from the truth.
After purchasing my Canon Rebel T5i, I found myself in awe and also extremely confused. It's an excellent camera for a beginner and there are a lot of different shooting options and attachments that can be purchased for it. I found mine on Amazon and it came with 5 lenses, a tripod, bag and memory cards for a very good price. Overall, the camera takes great still photographs and the image quality is good with the many internal options it has but it does not do as great with action shots as the shutter speed does not allow for it to go as fast as you may need it. Then again, I just may need more education on how to use it.
Canon is the best for its price. Its still photos and non-blurred videos are consistently excellent. I get the best image quality for the money. Speed is also consistently good. Turn on the auto and it will give you excellence, learn the manual and you've got it all. It's the best bang for your buck.
Mine is a Canon T1i and despite its age it never disappoints me. It never leaves me without the shot I want. I do a lot of what I call "gotcha" wildlife pics which are the ones you see while out doing something else and snap, rather than spending hours setting up their shot and waiting until the perfect shot presents itself. The quality and value of the camera is outstanding. My other love is equally demanding for a camera... marching band and color guard competition shots actually during those competitions. I have an old shoulder fracture AND a trashed rotator cuff and still am able to easily obtain shots that consistently make people say, "Wow!" I really wish I could upload some of my pics and allow you to judge for yourself!
Although other brands may have more current performance specs in some areas, Canon is always an excellent total package for amateurs and professionals alike. They have the best menu system and the best touch screens. However, it lacks some current performance capability in low light and in video. If Canon would become more current with fast developing technology, I would give the highest rating but, making cameras that will be current for a long time has been a Canon philosophy.
I love it. It captures all my special & favorite moments. It's easy for my kids to use as well. It's great for the family and family moments as well as friends.
For wildlife shooting, my Canon camera is a very good choice because of 10 fps, and high and fast ISO available. I like it and chose it for this reason. Focusing was a problem, and though now minor, still persists, but this is because bought from 42nd ST Photo which sells questionable quality products and uses other deceptive methods to scam customers, therefore it is not representative of Canon quality. What I point at and shoot comes out in the photo to the right of what I aimed at. But after I had a Canon rep walk through and advise on best settings, and advice from photographers in the field, I have my camera set so that it operates like a point and shoot. For my birding purposes, this is optimum and I love it.
My camera is versatile, compact & high quality. For a couple of hundred dollars, I get Canon quality. The image quality is very good. Moreover, it's well-made and almost indestructible. In addition, it's point & shoot, easy to carry & easy to use. However, the only problem I have is battery life. Two AA batteries don't cut it.
I bought a Canon T3i. My camera feels good and the controls are easy to change when setting up for a shot. However, the mechanics are not so good. It has hidden faults. No one told me about flash problems not covered by warranty and an EOS lens with a hair between the lenses. The camera's not worth the money and it's not good for paperweight, but there's no sorry or exchange. The image quality depends on the lens and overall knowledge of the user. When using the correct lens, the image will be good to enlarge, and there's no need to worry about the image being pixelated.
I have a small slr which is an ideal size for carrying on long walks. Its video is not bad, however the long zoom is useless even with a tripod, the controls are tricky to use, and the battery life not very good. It would be better if the lens has a better quality and is interchangeable.
