Ofcourse You'll find more reports about Canon digicams than on, say,
Samsung or most other brands because of the sheer number of digicams
that Canon sell - nontheless it could be a factor in deciding which
digicam to buy.
I've had my Canon PowerShot A60 for 1 3/4 years now, no troubles this
far - and that's after nearly 6000 photos.
Local laws established to protect the rights of the consumer where I
live will help me should my A60 "go sour" - at least the first 2
years since the purchase.
