Summary: In April 2008, I purchased an SD890IS from Amazon for my wife because she prefers a camera with a viewfinder for bright shooting situations when it's difficult to view the LCD screen image. She quickly learned to use the camera's features and the photo quality was excellent.
Summary: I bought this camera June 11, 2009. I have had owned several Canon camera and have been satisfied until now. Within 5 weeks of purchasing this camera, the lens stuck in the open position. A simple search for, "Canon SD1000 Lens Error", will provide over 10,000 hits.
Summary: This is a fantastic camera, as I would expect from Canon. There is now a new model of this camera (SD970), but I like the SD890 better because the buttons on the back panel are easier to use. Also the SD890 is a far better value than the SD970. $150+ for 12 megapixels vs.
Summary: This takes amazing photos for someone not skilled at taking photos. It's compact, easy to use, easy to navigate without reading the directions. I carry it with me always now and have been able to capture some amazing things from a great distance without even getting out of the car. I love it!
Excerpt: I got this camera for my husband as a birthday gift. This is compact digital camera with 10 MP optical resolution in it and 5x optical zoom. It is light weight around 2 pounds, and size is such that it fits in your palm easily a perfect pocket camera. …
Summary: I continue to be amazed at how much camera is being put into how small a package these days. This one replaces a Canon from about four years ago. It cost less than the old one, is smaller and lighter, and has better zoom and resolution. The few pictures I've taken so far are beautiful.
Small Excellent camera for indoor and outdoor pictures

Summary: I had Canon SD450(5.1 Mega Pixel) camera earlier and it was getting old. So I was looking for replacement for a reasonable price. I think SD890IS is good find for 10Meg Pixel and 5X optical zoom. On our recent California and Nevada trip I used this camera for all time.
