Do not buy this camera

Roberto, Amazon
16 July 2010
  • 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.

Lens Error

M. Soha "old techie", Amazon
26 July 2009
  • 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. Canon will charge over $100 to fix and Amazon is not interested in providing a refund.

Canon PowerShot SD890 IS Digital Camera

5 October 2008
  • Summary: I was really impressed with the photos I look with this camera. The image stabilization works really well and the presets are worth using. I have a two year old so the size is nice and easy to use. My first impression of the camera itself was average. It seemed like the housing was not the same quality as my previous canon and the on off button was very difficult to use.

Viele Funktionen, schlechte Bedienbarkeit

Maik S., Amazon
11 July 2008
  • Summary: Nachdem bei meiner alten Kamera (hp r707) das Display kaputt gegangen ist, bin ich auf der Suche nach einer neuen. Im technischen Vergleich fand ich die IXUS 970 am besten und habe sie mir hier bestellt. Dazu kurz meine Eindrücke. Positiv: - viele Funktionen, die vielleicht nicht jeder braucht - guter Bildstabilisator - schöne kompakte Bauweise - alles was sonst der Beschreibung entnommen werden kann Negativ: - wie schon beschrieben ist die Bedienung der Knöpfe,...

Schlechter Einschaltknopf

Michael Wiedemann, Amazon
29 May 2008
  • Summary: Ich besitze seit 6 Jahren eine Ixus 330 (ja, die hat tatsächlich nur 2MP) und dachte es wäre an der Zeit für was Neues. Die Wahl viel auf die Ixus 970. Beim Auspacken die erste Enttäuschung: Plastik! Nichts mehr zu sehen von dem edel anmutenden Aluminium-Gehäuse meiner 330. Auch die Knöpfe machen eher einen wackeligen anstatt hochwertigen Eindruck Und dann kam der Einschaltknopf.
