GREATEST little camera around!
9 April 2014
Summary: I've owned a Canon ELPH SD890 for years and it is the perfect camera for keeping with you at all times to get those unexpected pix of wildlife, pets, family members, friends, etc. The quality of the pix is unbelievable for such a budget friendly camera. The quality of the sound and clarity of the videos are great too. I purchased another because I was so happy with the old one. I leave one in my vehicle and carry one with me on my ATV.
Summary: As a professional photographer, I can only tell you that this is a great little camera for the price. More than enough features and I can put it in my front pocket. I recently dropped and broke my first Canon SD890 IS. Thank goodness for ebay! I just bought a used one to replace it.
Canon PowerShot SD890 is a great 'on the go' camera

Excerpt: This camera is my second Canon PowerShot, and am very happy with the way it performs. The pros are that it is very lightweight, fits well in my purse and is quick to use for all my daily needs of a camera. The quality of the shots are great for a digital point and shoot. The different shot options make getting a great picture possible.
Excerpt: I had Canon powershot SD 970 for over an year now and I must say that this is truly an artwork by Canon. It is an amazing camera with amazing features. It has 5x zoom and 12.1 Mega pixel to make your pictures looks stunning and crystal clear. I must say that outdoor pictures are much better than indoor pictures though image stabilization works great without flash on.The flash is great as compared to comact cameras.
Excerpt: I've pretty much owned mainly Canon digital cameras and have loved every single one of them, including this one, the SD890. It has a nice solid build and sturdy feel. The 10 megapixels is more than enough for what I need. Don't go by the megapixel rating too much however as that has nothing to do with how good the pictures come out. I had a 1.2 megapixel Canon Elph in the past that blew out the picture quality of another manufacturer's camera that was 4.0 megapixel.
Excerpt: This Canon power shot is a great one to use for picture taking on the run. When i first have it i played with it alot and i liked it because they have many functions. LCD screen image is simulated. They have face detection and motion detection technology. When taking picture i can aim and zoom in to the right size that i want in a long distance about 20ft. It also has the function to fix the picture after taken. Chang color resize or brithen it up.
Excerpt: Have always owned Canon digital camera's and so have other members of my family, but not sure I would buy Canon the next time. My favorite feature is the the way the screen automactially changes the orientation of the picture on the display screen as you turn the camera for maximum viewing size of the picture. I picked this particular camera becuase of the zoom. However, I am disappointed. It is bulky and is thicker than I would prefer.
Excerpt: The Canon Powershot SD890 is a great little camera with plenty of nice features. Perfect sie to keep in your pocket or pocketbook. Compact and easy to hold with the button in just the right places.I've only had this camera a few days but I'm loving it and can't wait to check out the rest of it's features and modes.
Excerpt: I recieved this camera last year for Christmas and I was so exicited! I've always wanted a camera to leave in my purse so that I'm able to take pictures wherever I go. I love to leave it in my purse because it's just so small that I can basically take it everywhere. The settings for this camera takes really nice pictures, since it makes you look basically flawless. Love, love, love. Taking shots within 20 feet is nice too!
