Good pocket camera

Summary: Good photographic value - reliable, and decent quality for a point-and-shoot. Excellent to keep in the pocket or car for those "once-in-a-lifetime" opportunities. Battery life (Canon batteries) is excellent.
Summary: Happy with the product for about a year. Shares software with all Canon Point-and-shoots and shoots nice, easy pics for family or documentation. Unfortunately, it seemed to grab a single killer drop of water from my pocket during a rain shower and died untimely.
Summary: Pro: the camera will fit in your pocket which is great for someone like myself that spends many hours on an ATV or motorcycle in the mountains (no place to carry a bulky SLR camera). As long as the camera is set on automatic the photos are of great quality.
Summary: I have had many pro cameras for many years. I wanted the ease of a point and shoot camera but with superior optics and built in software to compensate for less than perfect lighting conditions.
Summary: I've had this camera for about a month and am very happy. I took it on a aclimbing trip and got some great pics of the rainier summit and the sunrise. It has also worked very well in macro mode. I do feel as if the stabilizer improves the picture quality.
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...
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.
