Summary: This is a "high end" pocket sized digital which takes very nice pictures. The controls are intuitive for anyone with basic digital camera experience. It's size and weight make it a "go anywhere" camera.
Summary: I previously had a Canon SD700 IS, and was looking for an upgrade. The SD950 IS is an upgrade, but not as much as I had hoped. The Digic III software does have several nice features over Digic II.
Summary: This is probably the best pocket camera on the market today. I have previously owned other many ELPHs, F50fd, F100fd (both terrible) and several DSLRs. PROS Well designed -- No weird power button issues SD850 has, flash is in the right place, great Canon interface, titanium feels very durable and...

Summary: -I guess the best part of this camera is that it does have a separate view finder, so you don't have to use the lcd screen and battery. When in bright light it's nice to have when the LCD screen is hard to see.
Summary: I owned the first digital camera Sony made (unfortunately it had limited internal storage and media cards had not yet been invented, transferred photos only through infrared port, and it cost twice as much as this Canon), then the Sony Mavica 400 (which cost $1000 and had to be sent back for repairs...
Summary: I read many reviews here and elsewhere before purchasing this camera. Get a good memory card and the shot repeat time is faster than advertised.

Summary: I just purchased this camera as a replacement of my SD100 before going to a trip. The photos taken are just marvelous particularly it has a manual mode which provides a better flash control in extreme lighting condition.
Summary: Great camera for the size, fits in my pocket but I can still take great close up shots and fantastic true color high rez photo's. The pets and children setting was a surprise! When I needed to take a picture of a very energetic dog I was able to catch the pose instantly with no delay of the camera.
Summary: My former digital camera is a Nikon 4500 that was 6 years old, cost $700+, and is still working. The Canon was a major jump in MP count, size reduction, SDHC storage, and convenience. 12MP really is overkill in many cases.
Summary: My review got cut off: ...Just as easy to navigate the old way. Zooming in on 12.1 megapixel shots, I'm not seeing the quality - giving credit to the claim that going past 7 megapixels in todays cameras its not worth it. I’ll most likely leave it set on 8mp. 32 meg SD card included? Is this a joke?
