Question about Canon Cameras
Judging from the hundreds of hits and top position of this issue, Canon cameras have a propensity for falsely reporting low battery condition and then shutting down, even if the batteries have just been changed. I've had this experience with a Canon PowerShot A490, an otherwise good pocket camera that is rendered useless by this serious defect. This failure happens to develop just outside the 1-year warranty period. I consider this kind of failure a product of calculated, engineered obsolescence to force repurchasing of cameras every 1 to 2 years. It's a ripoff of the photography customer. Canon's reputation and sales deserve to suffer for putting defective cameras like this on the market.
