Summary: I am a big canon fan and have been patiently waiting for the release of the SD970 since canon's announcment prior to the 2009 PMA. In the following review my basis for comparison is the new sony w290 and my experience owning a canon SD700.
Nice photos but overpriced and limited movie functionality.

Summary: Nice photos but overpriced and limited movie functionality. This camera takes very nice photos and had an incredibly sharp LCD display. I only used it in manual mode during the short time I had it, so I can't speak for the program mode although many have complained about it.
Canon IXUS 990 IS, excellent camera despite the price

Excerpt: This is the second Cannon IXUS model that I have purchased and as before I have been impressed. Picture quality is excellent even when using the digital zoom although a stand is recommended, particularly in poor light.
Summary: I agree with the others, fab camera, great quality pics - WHEN IT WORKS!. I bought mine ready for a weeks holiday and during the week the menu and the focus have regularly not worked. I am returning it and as Amazon is out of stock will have to re-buy.
Buy the Canon Ixus 960 Titanium instead. Much better build and picture quality by far.

Summary: My wife bought the Canon Ixus 960 Titanium last year and we both loved it. Because I kept using it, my lovely wife got annoyed so I went and bought one for myself. However instead of buying the Titanium 960IS I decided to buy the 990IS, thinking that it is 'better' due to the increase in optical...
Excerpt: Cuando hace 3 años me compre Canon 950, no me podia creer que las fotos tuvieran una calidad tan grande casi en cualquier condicion de luz. Hace varios meses me la robaron. Decido comprarme hace 4 meses una camara similar pero mas moderna , la 990, y pague mas de 400 euros.
Summary: ich bin ein bissel enttäuscht, da die bilder teilweise unscharf und verpixelt sind. die camera hat ein viel zu hohes bildrauschen, was ich vergleichbar nur von "billigcameras" kenne. meine vorherige camera (ixus 90is) ist um längen besser was die bildqualität angeht.
Summary: Einen Nachfolger für meine Digital IXUS II, das war es, was ich wollte. Nachdem ich längere Zeit mit einigen Panasonic-Modellen geliebäugelt hatte, bestellte ich mir diese Kamera. Die Bildqualität war im Vergleich mit der alten Kamera natürlich der Hammer, der Zoom großartig.
