Canon PowerShot SD970 IS Review
14 July 2009
Excerpt: With the warm weather finally here, there’s no better time to pop a camera in your pocket and take on the world—or at least capture it on SDHC cards. Canon continues to dominate the point-and-shoot market and with models like the 12-megapixel PowerShot SD970 IS for less than $350, it’s easy understanding why. The compact aim-and-forget has just about everything a casual shutterbug needs including a terrific 3-inch LCD screen and the ability to grab HD video clips.
Pros: Rich, saturated colors; solid 5x image stabilized zoom; superior 3-inch LCD screen (461K pixels); drop-dead easy to use
Cons: Expensive; pokey 1 fps capture; no f/stop, shutter speed adjustments; only digital zoom with HD video
Deluxe, 12.1-megapixel Canon digital camera with a high-definition movie mode
