Summary: This is a GREAT starter camera for the aspiring photographer. It really helps you to start to learn the different camera settings if you are just moving on from a point-n-shoot. You honestly would have a very difficult time jumping into a loaded primo camera. My husband is an avid photographer and this was his first big step for cameras. You will definitely have to read the booklet when you get it if you have never used a camera with settings before.
Summary: I am very fond of Canon products, however I think there is something missing with this camera, you can take great shots with daylight but unfortunately you have to be very patient when waiting the camera to autofocus at night. IA mode is also quite dumb when selecting the subject to focus. By the way, its last generation processor could be better. Recording movies is great. I don't know why it has to be *.MOV but it's not a big deal after all.
Summary: My brother bought this camera and the pictures were so great, I had to get one for myself. I love it and have taken some great pictures in the Smoky Mountains with the fall colors. Shipment was fast and a great price.
Summary: This camera showed up in excellent condition & arrived sooner than expected. I bought this camera for scuba diving. This requires an underwater housing, but takes AMAZING pictures out of the box. Fantastic pictures in/out of the water!!! Great purchase.
Summary: Lovely camera. It was a great replacement for a previous Sony digital camera. The picture quality is awesome and the special feature are fun too. I highly recommend canon cameras to anyone in the market for a digital camera.
Summary: Right to the point. I have used many point and shoot cameras over the years. Not all of them were Canon cameras. I've purchased the Canon 50D camera but wanted a smaller camera to carry around. I choose the Canon SD990 IS, 14.7 MP camera. After taking several hundred pictures with this camera I can say the picture quality is outstanding not to mention the camera's construction, also. I've taken pictures and printed them to 13" x 19" size with again, outstanding results.
Summary: i love this camera. I have an SLR and always end up using this camera to take my pics anyway. Im about to sell my SLR and just stick with this camera. The colors that this camera catches is beautiful and vivid. ive been very happy with this camera.
