Summary: I like the size, fits everywhere. rugged too, my kids dropped several times and bruises on the corners but works well. not good indoor performance but overall a very nice outdoor camera if you like to carry something small.
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!
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: I love this camera for its size and ease of use. It takes great high resolution photos, can also zoom in better than comparable cameras. The only down side is that sometimes when using flash camera slows down.
Excerpt: Works great most of the time. I have had some problems figuring out the right option to use for dimly lit indoor shots and night shots. This may be due to user error though. Tiny and perfect to take with me everywhere.
Canon Powershot is a good alternative to pricey models.

Excerpt: I purchased the Canon Powershot for classroom use. I needed something that would be user-friendly so that my students could use it. It also needed to be sturdy enough to withstand use by 100+ sixth graders year after year! I was given a grant to purchase this camera and had enough left over to also get the extended warranty (3 years). haven't had to use the warranty one time.
The Cannon SD940 is a powerful,Versatile point and shoot.

Excerpt: A few months ago I purchased a new camera, the cannon powershot SD940. I was not sure that I was going to purchase another cannon because my old one had just stopped working one day. The salesman convinced me to give it another try. I am very glad that I did. The camera has better zzoom qualities than the one I previous owned. Overall the camera is excellent. I like the sleek slim body of the camera that I can slip into my pocket.
Excerpt: First of all, I LOVE Canon cameras! I am a very organized, "get it done" person, and this is the camera for me. The size is great- fits in a small purse. The functions are easy to learn- very user friendly. I loved how it was a very easy transition from my old Canon camera (with added features). The pictures always turn out fantastic. It's funny, because my family thinks I am a great photographer, but I know it's just the camera!
Excerpt: This camera is a dream come true! Before this one, I had a Canon PowerShot A610, and this one is so much better! It is smaller, takes higher resolution pictures and videos, and is cute to boot. One complaint I have about this camera is that the shutter speed leaves something to be desired. I like to take pictures of a couple of cute babies, and often the smile is gone before the camera actually takes the picture.
Excerpt: Great lightweight camera. Easy to operate, battery charges in a seprate plug in device so no need to always be buying new batteries. I loved this camera! We bought it for work so I was very excited to try it out. I liked it so much that I purchased one for home and personal use. The picture quality was good, it held a charge for lots of pictures on multiple occassions and was fun to use.
