Summary: I am very happy with this camera. In fact, we ordered it to replace the same model. I was a tiny bit disappointed that the Blue one, which is the color of our first, was more expensive; but it turns out the Gold is not bad. The only thing I would say that is not great about this camera is the different settings are a bit difficult to learn. I love all the different available settings, but it they are not easy to change over to.
Summary: We bought this camera 12 months ago and have been very pleased with the quality of the photographs it takes. The color balance is very good, and the sharpness is excellent. It's loaded with features, and the small size makes it easy to carry. The only issue that affects us occasionally is the lag time between shots. This caused us to miss some good photos.
Excerpt: Hello, I consider myself to be a relaxed person when it comes to cameras. This Canon Powershot camera is clearly easy to use and hands down the best/most favorite camera I have ever used. Why?? Well, I love that the lens doesn't stick out when I am viewing pictures. I like how it is very reliable, very-user friendly (specifically I like turning the "wheel" on the back of the camera to view from picture 1 to picture 2). Overall, easy to use, reliable and has a sleek look.
Excerpt: With a 28mm wide-angle lens, a 4x zoom, and 12 megapixels, this ultra-compact canon fits easily in my purse or pocket and takes amazing, high quality photos. On 'auto' this camera takes excellent photos with beautiful color and excellent exposure. You can choose from 18 different 'smart auto' scenes...and just about every scenario you can think of is covered. In the 'program' mode you can tweek things like ISO, white balance, light metering, and autofocus type.
Summary: This is my second one of these cameras. The first one, after 4 years of heavy use, came unglued across the front panel. This is probably a readily repairable item, but the "zoom" also lost most of it's "range". I was in Europe and I did not want the last 4 weeks of my vacation ruined for lack of a camera, so I ordered a new one in the nick of time for my daughter to bring it with her when she came. It does a great job most of the time on "auto".
Summary: when i bought this what i thought was strange was that i bought it in the 'used' section, and the description said that it was "hardly ever used" but when i got it, a sticker was on the side of the camera that said "refurbished." nonetheless the camera works great and i love it. thanks!
Summary: I bought this camera before setting out to Europe. I spent plenty of time comparing and contrasting cheaper point-and-shoots before I finally pulled the trigger on this 960IS. I've been carrying it around for 4 months now, have had the opportunity to put it through the ringer, and now can provide you fellow Amazoner's with a sufficient review! 1) You can't expect point-and-shoots to come out with phenomenal images like those you'd capture with a D-SLR.
Summary: Love this camera. I don't expect professional quality from a camera like this, but it is very good. Vibrant colors, good in lots of lighting conditions, decent zoom, good depth of field on basic settings. Adjustments are unusual for someone used to an SLR - you can't just select shutter speed, aperture, but can control them with other settings. User interface is nice but takes some getting used to after having older Canon digital cameras.
Summary: I understand they say that everyone's eyes are different, and every camera looks different to every eye. HOWEVER, I have used, owned, tested and bought enough cameras over the past 4 years to know one simple thing: DO NOT USE PORTRAIT, INDOOR OR AUTO FOR INDOOR PHOTOS OF HUMAN BEINGS for this SD960 model, or likely for any other newer model Canon with SmartAUTO feature.
Summary: So far the camera seems to be great. Had a few blurry pictures to start, but discovered it was my technique, not the camera. Would like to have a view finder, as high lighting can make the screen hard to use.
