love my camera!

Excerpt: i've had this camera for about three years now and really like it. i love it when i first got it and now would probably just like an updated version. my very favorite feature about the camera is that it has red eye removal. after a picture is taken i can go in and fix the red eye and save a new picture. the camera also has a red eye feature but sometimes with that the eyes still turn out red (especially on blue eyes).
Cannon SD 950 IS is a great compact quality camera

Excerpt: Cannon's SD 950 IS is nearly perfect. It has an awesome picture quality and a myriad of features of which I have not even used all of. The buttons are all in great placement and I do not need to search through a plethora of screens to find what I need. It seems like they know exactly the functions I use the most for these have their own buttons. The LCD screen is large, but not overdominating.
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. My only complaint is the same one I've had with most of Canon's cameras (this being the 8th or 9th). The access door for the USB connect is poorly designed and even more poorly constructed.
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. The higher resolution doesn't really matter, and I haven't noticed pictures being any sharper (despite the sensor being twice as large). The camera is slightly larger than the SD700, and that's the major downside for me -- it doesn't fit into my pocket as easily.
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 light. IQ -- Excellent image quality at lower ISOs, good indoor IQ, try to keep the ISO low indoors and disable Auto ISO shift as it jacks it up to 800+ everytime.
No Tiff or RAW, limited options, small view screen

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. The image in the viewfinder is very small and a little hard to see because it is so small, but most point and shoot cameras don't have any. -The movies are as good, motion jpg, like most P&S cameras, they are good quality, but fairly low resolution.
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 almost immediately), and a 4.0 megapixel Mustek (which has never taken good photos).
