Summary: Had an old Pentax that wss wearing out after 8000+ shots, Needed a similar small camera to continue photography because one hand shakes with Parkinson's. Looked over the specs of several small cameras in the $200 - $300 range and found this one had all the features for control and specialty photos...
Good Pictures Flimsy Battery Cover, Bad On/Off, Grainy Screen

Summary: Just got this today. Would give the camera casing a 3 star rating, but the photo quality is excellent. It iiiis true what they say about the on/off switch. What a pain to push it in, but my complaint is the battery covering. It feels so flimsy that it could fall off with the slightest bang.
Summary: I have been using this camera for about 4 months. This is the 4th (digital) Canon I have purchased, preceded by a rebel and two elph models for family members. The two features that led me to select this are the 5x zoom and the viewfinder.
Summary: The Canon PowerShot Sd89OIS is a very capable little digital camera. Its generous 10 megapixel resolution, combined with a sharp zoom lens provides excellent images and accurate colors. My only complaint is the tiny size of the power (on-off) button.
Summary: This PowerShot SD890IS is fantastic! I took several pictures while we were driving on the high way at 75 MPH, and the pictures turned out to be fine, just like I took them when I was standing on the ground. Also it offers several special modes which are very useful.
Summary: This is one of the best cameras that I have ever laid my hands on. It is very simple to use and has a LOT of features that you can play with to create great creative images. I like the fact that it has an optical viewfinder.
Summary: I did a lot of research before I picked this camera; every site recommended cannon. Sony, casio all had picture problems. I picked this camera because it has a 5x optical zoom, low light feature, compactness, and the buttons are not close to one another so easy to use if you have big fingers.
Summary: This is the 4th Canon I have owned and my 3rd Elph... Let me start by saying nothing can replace my SD 700 which I lost... 4x optical zoom, buttons were all in a good location, compact camera and LIGHT!!
Summary: This is my third Canon. It works great. I'm really pleased with my pictures and the longer zoom capability. I like the larger screen. My only complaint is the "on/off" switch. It's difficult to use.
Summary: I'm a Big fan of Canon products-(own a Canon Powershot Pro S5 and 20D), so you can understand why I was a bit shy about this purchase-wanting convenience without risking quality. I elected to try the Canon SD890IS because of the 10M with 5X Optical.
