Summary: I bought this for myself in Baghdad a few years ago, and my Dad loved it so much, I bought this one for him. (He was surprised at the quality, (he is a camera tech fan, and owns a few SLRs). This camera is small and very user friendly. It allows you to shoot in all kinds of conditions and pull out the perfect shot. My friends always ask for my pictures when we all take them, because mine are always so clear and nice.
Summary: I've been having fun with this camera. I used to find that most of my photos turned out blurry. Not now. The image stabilization really works. I held up my camera while in a car driving 70mph and took photos out the window and even THEY turned out sharp. And it's very good at focusing on the object (NOT the window). I've been so delighted with the results that I got a second one for my husband.
Summary: This camera is not one of the cheap and flimsy digital cameras that cannon has started to produce. Instead for the extra investment made on this camera you get many more and better features and image quality. In looking at this camera before buying i saw that it supposed to allow you to shake the camera while looking at images to go to the next one.
Summary: I have bought the camera from Beach Camera thru Amazon. the quality is good and it deliver to our home (Philippines) in just one week which is ahead of time. I enjoy using my camera now and im looking forward to buy more items at amazon.
Summary: I've gone through many Canons (trying to find the right one), SD880, SD780, S90, SX200, and SX210. I currently have a Sony DSLR Alpha 330 and a Canon SX210IS and Canon SD970. The 970 has a lot of great features but one of its most disappointing is it's indoor/lowlight photos. We went to a waterpark the other day and all areas that have shadows are extremely underexposed.
Substantial Upgrade from the SD870IS and Minimal Learning Curve

Summary: MY REVIEW: I purchased the Canon SD970IS in June, 2010 to replace my Canon SD870IS which suffered from a failing display after four years of use. Beyond the screen failure, I was very satisfied with the SD870IS and opted to again purchase a Canon. The SD970IS is very similar to the SD870IS in manner of use - I mean, the buttons were identical to the older camera, utilized the same battery, same charger, etc.
Excerpt: This camera does exist...and I love it. I don't have a problem of out-of-focus picture like the other reviewer. Its auto mode is very smart, I'd say. I rarely have to adjust anything manually. I don't know if the price has dropped now but when I got it, it was pretty expensive. But everyone loves my camera! It takes great pictures and HD video. I don't have the washout color problem either...and I've been using it since August 2009.
