Canon Powershot SD890 IS Digital Camera
25 July 2014
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'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.
Great camera for those for whom picture quality is most important.

Summary: I have this camera for a few years already, and I'm really happy with it. It's very easy to use, and takes beautiful pictures. My only complaint is that it takes a second after you take a picture to take another one. You can't snap snap snap.
This is for those who want a point & shoot, but like manual control too.

Summary: Has excellent manual controls for those who want to go beyond automatic mode. Images are very good. Macro feature is excellent. Battery life is excellent. Easy of use is average. Weight is a little heavy and the shape of the camera, although asthetically pleasing, is conducive to dropping the camera. I lost one of these cameras, but liked it so much I bought another.
lot of camera for the money, surprisingly sharp pictures easy to use

Summary: i needed a camera that was smaller than my small fuji 10x mini slr , i liked the fuji works fine but wanted something more portable for the spur of moment shots and a backup knock around camera i could easily keep in my pocket, the canon fits the bill nicely and does everything i would want it to do, this camera offers a lot of versitality for its size.
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. In September 2009, the lens locked in extended position and there was a grinding noise when trying to retract it.
Summary: My refurbished camera arrived when I expected it. It was complete and looked new. I tried taking some pictures and it worked flawlessly. It is nice to have a quality camera that will fit in my pocket.
