I'm still looking for a good still camera

CARLOS E. RODRIGUEZ "Woody Allen fan", Amazon

  • 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.

Great camera, but some problems

Mark Twain, Amazon

  • Summary: I have been using Canon cameras for many years and have been very happy with them. This new model has some annoying new problems. The on-off button is very hard to operate, its nearly impossible to operate without both hands and a strong finger depressing the button with absolute force and spot-on accuracy. Why did they change this feature that was not giving any problems in the past??

Canon Digital IXUS 980

John Hindmarch, Amazon
13 July 2009
  • Summary: Slightly disappointed after reading reviews. Not as easy to operate as my previous camera the IXUS 800 (6 mega pixel) which was better designed. Function set button and wheel around it particularly hard to operate (Have to use my fingernail) Video playback on computer jerky {maybe fault of computer not camera) but OK on TV. Picture quality excellent.

Great, if it's not cold or wet!

Marcus Dyson "DoctorDee", Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased a Canon Ixus 980IS in November 2008. I took it with me when I went hiking in the UK, in Winter. This means, basically in cold and wet conditions. I carried the camera in my backpack in a waterproof bag, or in the pocket of my quality waterproof jacket. After five times of using the camera, it stopped working. I sent it to Canon for repair. They told me the camera was suffering from "corrosion" and I was liable for the £120 repair bill.

A Canon that lacks firepower.

  • Excerpt: "Canon has been producing great quality cameras since Jesus was a lad, both in the compact digital and the DSLR market. Their cameras regularly combine great looks with awesome technology and performance and the Canon IXUS 980 IS follows that pattern, well as long as you buy it in silver it does because the black version just isn't as good looking by far. This point and shoot digital camera has a huge 14.7 megapixels and it uses Canon's latest DIGIC ...
  • Pros: Easy to use, well built and looks good (in silver at least) !
  • Cons: Poor image quality in some lights and not great value for money .

Ganska bra

felldin, Prisjakt

  • Summary: Rigtigt snygg och tar väldigt bra bilder. Hyffsat gott om inställningsmäjligheter men samtidigt fungerar autoläget rätt bra i de flesta situationer. Kameran är riktigt snabb för att vara en kompaktkamera. Det som gör att betyget dras ner är den rätt dåliga filmfunktionen. Ganska lågupplöst video men värst av allt är att det blir kraftiga och tydliga lila streck under ljusa föremål, till exempel under lampor och väldigt ljusa fönster.

  • Excerpt: Купил вместо старого Canon РС-1085 3,2Мр и разницы не почувствовал. Цвета одинаковые, количество бракованных снимков тоже. Лучше купить модель по дешевле.
  • Pros: Маленький, титановый корпус, четкий дисплей.
  • Cons: Страшно медленный, нет функции "серия снимков", толку от количества пикселей никого. Стабилизатор почти что не работает, у сони Т-300 лучше. Вес снимков больше, следовательно карта то же должна быть большая.
