Canon Digital IXUS 980 IS / PowerShot SD990 IS Digital ELPH

Camera Labs

  • Summary: The camera’s unique grip shape, which resembles a squashed figure-eight from the side, looks and feels a little odd at first, but before long offers a comfortable and secure grip. And like all of Canon’s higher-end compacts, the build quality and finish are excellent.
  • Pros: High resolution images., Good screen with optional viewfinder., Great battery life with viewfinder., Manual control over exposure.
  • Cons: Lacking true wide-angle coverage., No optical zoom while filming., No HD video or HDMI port., Modest burst mode at 1.3fps.

  • Summary: The Canon IXUS 980 IS is chunkier than earlier or cheaper models, but can boast a very high pixel count and good SD video capture. Manual controls allow more creativity while auto modes still provide click and forget convenience.

Pocket Lint

  • Conclusion: But I’m glad to say, the Canon Digital IXUS 980 IS, while being unorthodox in its styling, is more than capable at taking cracking pictures and while that organic, swooping design might put some off, its imaging performance certainly will not.
  • Pros: Good low ISO image quality, all-metal build and curvy design, features
  • Cons: High ISO image noise, some controls slow to use, organic curvy design might not be to everyone’s taste

  • Conclusion: Obviously I like the picture quality and this is the most important factor for me when choosing a camera. The big question is whether or not you are prepared to pay the premium price. If money is not so important and top quality is all that counts this is likely to be a good choice.
  • Pros: Design - picture quality
  • Cons: Slow when flash is turned on

  • Excerpt: Le Canon Ixus 980 IS annonce 14 mégapixels sur son nouveau capteur : disons le clairement, c’est sans doute trop, et le bruit sera en hausse ; cependant cette définition record permet aussi de limiter la visibilité de ce bruit sur les tirages.
  • Pros: Qualité d'image et définition, Stabilisation, Mode manuel, Compacité, Look
  • Cons: Bruit malgré tout
