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.
Summary: I've been a fan of Canon's point and shoot cameras since buying my first one in 2003. This is my third canon point and and shoot as I gave my first one to my parents to upgrade and lost my second camera while on vacation. UI is extremely friendly and can be changed quickly to get the perfect shot.
Summary: For a long time I scoffed at carrying around a compact camera. I was singularly unimpressed with the quality of photos from my Canon A540 and S3. They used AA batteries; weren't particularly small, and had all kinds of problems with blown highlights and noise in low lighting.
Pros: Really very good photo quality; almost rivaling some early DLSR's. This is remarkable because if you read my a540 review you can see how I was lamenting that compact cameras weren't going anywhere in terms of photo quality. This came out just a year later,, In general a very good meter; I can poi...
Cons: It is a compact, and thus doesn't have the shot to shot speed of a DSLR or the dynamic range; I only have a +/- exposure compensation of 2EV while most cameras do 5., There is a practical limit of how small these can be, and the controls are tiny and require a little finesse to use., Can be frail...
Summary: It is a nice point and shoot very compact camera. It feels good in hands, easy to use. Some pictures came out not very sharp. As all Canon cameras, it takes pictures with beautiful colors. I would definitely recommend it.
Summary: I read a lot about different point and shoot cameras. This one had the best review on the quality of pictures in different lighting. I have loved this camera. The only thing I wish is that the manuel explained the different features better.
Summary: I had previously owned a much larger camera but decided, when it was stolen, to move to a smaller one that fit better into a fanny pack. This certainly fit the bill - actually took me a while to learn how to hold it because it is so small. Pictures are clear and easy to download.
Summary: I bought this camera for a family member, but I borrowed it for about 500 pictures on a recent trip to Nicaragua. I have an older Canon SD870 which I dearly love, but I thought I would like the smaller size of SD940 and it has HD video. The picture quality is up to normal Canon standards...
