The Canon Powershot SD940 is a poor choice
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I purchased this camera and went on a trip to Hawaii. The camera worked great while there and I was very happy with the quality of my pictures. I retuned home and the next time I went to use my camera, the lens would not retract. The store would not allow me to return it as my 30 days had expired. I am now left with a camera I paid $169 that won't work.
Excerpt: Disappointing handling and construction. I've been a Ixus 70 user so far and I very much appreciated its handling, which had been outstanding! Supposing the Ixus 120 still had the same advantages as far as handling is concerned, I must admit the Ixus 120 is pretty disappointing. Buttons are pretty hard to push (this is really disappointing for daily use) and after two weeks of use the zoom crank is blocked and needed to be repaired.
appalling - only 1 star because couldn't give NO stars

Summary: (I bought an ixus 120IS elsewhere after this experience, & the camera is superb). However, buying it through Amazon was a bad experience - trapped in a kafka-esque world. Ordered Jy 16, when camera arrived Jy 19 it was silver, not black as stated on delivery note. Simple - exchange it. Simple? Not a chance.
Summary: This is a very nice camera - no doubt. However, the first time I took it out to use, someone knocked it from a friend's hands as he tried to take a picture of us. It was an accident, and undoubtedly our fault, but the camera is completely destroyed: after one fall. One would expect an expensive Canon to be built with sufficient strength to withstand the occasional slip... the fact that it has been rendered unusable immediately should be a warning.
