Amazing camera, horrible depreciation
8 June 2013
Summary: We live in an era of point & shoot cameras becoming obsolete. Although I bought this camera more than three years ago and sold it just a year later, I got only a fifth of what I paid for it, and this was with it in like-new condition and all the original accessories. You can push this thing quite a bit when shooting on manual; it was to the point where some friends couldn't recognize my pictures from it vs. those from my 5D - truly remarkable!
Summary: This is the BEST camera for a point and shoot! It is compact, easy to use and takes wonderfully clear photos. I have had several people who own other well-known name brand cameras comment on the clarity of the photos and ease of use. It is my second camera of this model and I shopped specifically for it when my other camera was damaged at the airport by the inspectors dropping it on a concrete floor. I would purchase it again and again..
Summary: I loved everything about this camera .... size... functions .... looks for the first 1/2 year. Unfortunately dark spots stared showing up in my pictures. I tried cleaning the lens and other things. Finally after reading several blogs I realized that I needed to mothball this camera(s) (because I had two 940IS cameras). The spots were from specs(dirt) on the camera elements (glass)a condition that I couldn't correct.
Canon PowerShot SD940 - good for video, not so much for photos

Excerpt: This takes really nice videos but I wasn't too impressed with the photo quality. The colors are very cool toned, the flash is too harsh, and the images are a little too sharp. They video quality is great though, very crisp and clear.
Excerpt: Had bought this before the birth of my first child in may 2010. It has been a great experience. We just love it. it has helped capture many unforgetable memories. i even carried it to india for my vacation. would always recommend it to all!!!!
Excerpt: i have never had a camera this good!!! i have the black one, i got it at my baby shower and have been loving it for 8 months. it takes crisp, clear pictures almost every time!!! this camera makes my pics look professional. the functions are easy to use too! my favorite is the color accent function! i think this camera also has a underwater case that you can but extra. don't have it yet, but that would be sooo cool!!
