Good for Outdoors but not Indoors
stuff that works, Amazon

Summary: You always take the good with the bad with any point-and-shoot camera. So whether this is the camera for you depends on how you plan to use it. Good Points: It's attractive and takes good shots in full outdoor light.
Summary: Bought this camera almost two years ago. Great camera, great features. Then, one day, while taking pictures, the LCD suddenly went black. No LCD means I can't use the features, can't review photos...nothing. I called Canon, but since the 1 year warranty is expired, there's nothing they will do.
Summary: I've owned Digital Elphs ever since they were just 2.0MP. I really loved that camera at the time but this new one is simply amazing. Each camera in the line has been a step up, although basically it's the same camera. You don't have a learning curve with each new one. 12.1 Mega Pixels!
Summary: I am not too much into the digital camera world but I bought this one for my wife who previously owned a Sony DSC P100. After reviewing several web sites, especially one that only compares different pictures in different situations for a lot of cameras, the SD950 was the one that gave overall the...
Summary: The Canon PowerShot SD950IS is the greatest point-and-shoot digital camera that I have ever used. Some notable points: => 12 megapixels is not necessary for printing standard 3x5 snapshots, but there are an increasing number of companies (such as ShutterFly) which create projects such as calendars...
Summary: This camera is fantastic. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great, durable, high quality camera. You will need more hard drive space. The photos range from 2.5Mb to 4.5Mb at the 12Mb setting.
Nearly perfect compact point and shoot camera - and more!

Summary: I'm a Canon convert with this camera. I've had several small point and shoot cameras - this is hands-down the best I've owned. The previous one had some serious issues with the images, they were over-processed - detail was fuzzed out and there was nothing you could do about it.
Summary: I purchased this camera to upgrade my old Sony DSC-T7 about 6 months ago. I didn't think this camera had much to it until I discovered all the neat features that came with it. I'm brand new to photography and will soon be upgrading to a DSLR camera to add to my PowerShot.
Pros: It has a great macro setting. It's easy to navigate from screen to screen for those or don't know cameras well. It's small and compatible, so you can carry it with you at all times. I keep mine, just in case a photo opportunity arises. The zoom action is FANTASTIC. I took a picture of a dog from ...
Cons: Either I'm not completely savvy with the camera yet, or the night setting isn't really good. When trying to snap pictures of objects at night (and with the use of a tripod), it creates a lot of noise. I've tried to take a night shot with both high and low ISO, and it didn't work. Also, this doesn...
12.1 MP on small sensor still gives excellent results

Summary: I waited until I got two vacations under my belt before reviewing this camera. I was very concerned that cramming 12.1 MP on such a tiny sensor would dramatically up the noise and create poor image quality (IQ). My concerns have been alliviated! The IQ is excellent.
Summary: This review is a combination of three: Canon PowerShot SD950IS 12.1MP (Titanium) Canon PowerShot SD770IS 10MP (Silver) Canon PowerShot SD790IS 10MP I first purchased the Canon SD950, and after loonnnggg shipping from Jr.com, I received it and tried it out.
