Such a good camera... I bought another one.
2 January 2013
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.
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.
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.
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: 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. Camera is loaded with features but not all are easy to get to if you have big hands that is my one downside of this camera.
Summary: Another great Canon Camera Pros- *5x Zoom gives you a closer shot than a typical point and shoot *Control dial is similar to iPod touch wheel *Selection modes arranged better (Auto, Manual, SCN, Video). The Playback is separate and easier to access *Start up time immediate *Little lag between shots *Optical viewfinder Cons- *Shape of camera can make it hard to hold one handed *Metal finish has a few scuffs already from only a weeks use *Somewhat Pricey I personally think...
