Worth the money!

Excerpt: I bought this camera for times when I didn't want to carry around my heavier Canon digital SLR. It's a great camera that allows you to shoot nice pictures in Auto mode or have some fun and be a little more creative in other modes. I really like the image stabilization feature -- I used it to great effect when I was shooting pictures at a school musical. I was able to turn off the flash and still take some really great pics without a tripod.
Excerpt: The Canon Power SD 990 IS (Image Stabilizer) (Digitial ELPH) is "too easy" to operate. This sleek, brushed aluminium, chrome, and lightweight camera operates with a lithium battery so you can keep a charge for a longer period of time. If you are not real "camera savvy" place your camera on "Auto" and let it make all the decisions for you.
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: 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.
Summary: This camera is truely outstanding. It is the third ELPH series camera I have owned, so I know the basic psckage well. However, the increased megapixels to 14.7 make this model more flexible than those that came before. I have also, on Ebay, purchased aftermarket wide angle and telephoto lenses, therefor further increasing versatility. To top things off, I also purchased, on Ebay, a SanDisk Extreme 32GB SDHC memory card, for huge capacity and fast downloading.
Summary: ive been using this camera in a variety of situations, indoors and outdoors, studio and field and am qualified as a photographer and artist to review it. i have found the camera to be versatile and portable with incredible image quality. the zoom lens has jammed as i have got send in it both on beaches in canada and in the desert in california but in both circumstances repeated openeing and closing of the lens mechanism has seemed to remedy the problem.
