Summary: I bought this product to provide family members with cameras. Solid metal body with weight. Takes great pictures, but the controls on the back are not as user freindly as I would have hoped. Great battery life. Several shooting options along with the traditional point and shoot auto function that Canon is famous for. Good flash fill when needed. Great camera in the "Auto" setting for party's, and get togethers.
Huge viewing screen camera with high quality photo's for a reasonable price

Summary: This is an excellent product for a medium pixel "point and shoot camera. The all metal shell is rugged and impervious to minor abuse. It will provide you with a lifetime of photo memory's for a fraction of the cost of any comparable camera. I am very impressed by the crisp image quality and large viewing screen.
Even used, the Canon SD790 IS is a remarkable little camera

Summary: The SD790 is one of the best small digital cameras Canon ever produced. It has a metal, not plastic, frame and that drew me in. I wanted one right from the start for quick shots but could not afford it. So I bided my time. For a while I forgot about it and continued shooting with my full size professional Nikon, even for quick headshots. But recently I saw an Ebay promo for a used 790 and checked in on prices.
Summary: This is the best camera I have purchased so far, I had an accident with my own, and bought this one which had a problem with the auto focus, to use its parts so that I could fix my own. I didn't want to buy a new one because this one is just perfect, excellent picture quality, amazing video with great sound. I just love it!!!
Canon Powershot SD 790 is absolutely the best digital camera!
