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.
Canon Powershot is easy to work with many professional features

Excerpt: I researched many cameras before buyng the Canon SD790 IS. This camera has a great 3' LCD sceen. The images are super clear. There are 12 shooting modes, which were at first confusing to me. I just starting switching the modes and trying it out. The features are awesome and simple to figure out. One of my favorite settings allows you to set the camera to look for a specic color in the image your taking.
