  • I didn't care, I love the Canon form factors and menus so I agreed with my girlfriend that the Elfs were a good buy I surely thought a great company like Canon would have the E18 error fixed by now

      I have had this Canon SD500 for a few months now. It was a gift from my girlfriend.

      I LOVE this small camera.

      I had an older Canon S20 or something, one of the first digital Elfs.

      It was an awesome 2MP camera, but on a trip to San Diego I


      got the dreaded E18 error.

      I didn’t care, I love the Canon form factors and menus so I agreed with my girlfriend that the Elfs were a good buy I surely thought a great company like Canon would have the E18 error fixed by now! Well the SD500 took some great pictures for ...


      • a few months.

        I was able to carry it with me everywhere.

        It fit in my pocket.

        On this past spring break trip skiing in North Carolina I was at the summit trying to snap off some photos of a friend snowboarding, but as soon as I turned the camera on

        the lens came out, but the image could not focus.

        E18 on the screen… AAAHHHHHH CANON!!!! Well there it sits on the shelf awaiting the money to send it in for repair.

        The SD500 was a good camera while it lasted.

        I’m not sure I’ll ever trust Canon’s Powershot line of cameras again.
