almost a great camera but better options available

  • 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. I sent the SD970 back to Amazon after using it for about 1 hour.

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. I noted a few major issues (at least for me). First is that the camera has no optical viewfinder. I realize many point and shoots omit the optical viewfinder but that was a deal breaker for me.

Canon IXUS 990 IS, excellent camera despite the price

richardal..., Ciao

  • 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. One of the things that make these cameras so attractive is the ease of use, along with a range of camera modes which allow even novices to take good photos in range of environments.
  • Pros: Photo quality, ease of use, durability
  • Cons: expensive, useless memory card, slightly bulky

Systematic fault or was I just unlucky?

R. Powell, Amazon
6 September 2009
  • 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. My dilema is - do I replace with the same or look again?

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 zoom range. Unfortunately the 990IS camera compared to the Titanium 960 IS was disappointing to me in terms of build quality and picture quality.

  • 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. das sieht man wieder, das die pixelanzahl nur eine unbedeutende nebenrolle spielt und es vielmehr auf den bildsensor und die optik ankommt.

Alles toll, bis auf die Form

Flominator, Amazon
20 September 2009
  • 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. Die Gesichtserkennung macht ebenso Spaß, wie die Videofunktion (die allerdings keine Zoom während der Aufnahme bietet).

CANON IXUS 990 = DECEPCION CASI ESTAFA

Ignacio, quesabesde.com

  • Summary: 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. Estoy completamente decepcionado con la camara.
