Huge viewing screen camera with high quality photo's for a reasonable price
6 February 2013
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!!!
The sd 790 IS is a nice easy to use model of camera.

Excerpt: My wife bought the SD 790 IS camera to replace another cannon we dropped. I love cannons in the first place but this one is excellent. lots of options such as stitch assist and a nice real nice auto focus. the only thing it really lacks is the optical zoom is only 3X. I even thought of buying one for myself. The screen is huge and really clear.
Excerpt: If you need a good camera for video or just still pictures that is also very portable, then buy this. I carried this camera to china and back, and i took pictures almost every other minute. This thing was always there when i needed to capture a moment. It is very easy to turn on, snap something, and turn off. The picture and video quality is amazing for such a little device. I would recommend this for anyone who needs a good still camera and video camera.
Canon Powershot SD 790 is absolutely the best digital camera!

Excerpt: This is the best digital camera I have ever purchased!! It is small and lightweight! It holds a long battery life for picture taking. Lots of options and extras for great picture taking. Great zooming features and also takes very clear pictures. I take alot of my kids action shots and it takes great still shots with the non blur feature. I also use the short video feature alot. This digital camera is a very good purchase!!
Excerpt: I love my canon. Its so easy to use and my pictures are clear and vivid. Uploading to the computer is a snap even for a technically challenged person as myself. I keep my canon handy when Im in the yard just in case I happen to catch an eagle in flight or one of my pets decides to do something remarkable.
Excerpt: I bought this camera a long time ago, for my dad who was riding the tour de france. I didnt think it would be as good as it was, but it definately was great. I loved the feel in my hands, and the viedeo was very nice. (I'm using past tenses because I lost it because of its small size, but Im looking for it!) When I joined this site, when I saw Canon Cameras, I knew I just HAD to review this, because it was epic.
Great audio and image quality, frequent lense errors

Excerpt: I went into the electronic store Best Buy looking for a "cheaper" digital camera but a camera that was still decent quality with respect to image quality. Im not really the type to pay top dollar for perfect quality but I certainly wont except the worst product just because its the cheapest. This camera was suggested to me and for $180 I thought why not!
