Summary: This is my favorite point and shoot camera. This is the second one that I have owned. When out with a group of people, and several people are taking photos this camera takes the best photos. I would recommend this camera. I owned the older version of this camera for 5 years, and have owned this one for almost 2 years. It also takes great video.
Summary: Nice camera for the price. I'm still learning the ins and outs of various settings, but for the most part, I am pleased with the camera, images, myriad of settings, and smaller size. The shutter does seem to take a tad long to close hence, multiple pictures of the exact same image are difficult - action pix impossible to shoot more than once - but all in all, a good little camera as far as I am concerned.
It's a great camera for the money and a perfect size.

Excerpt: This is a perfect size camera. I throw it in my purse so I always have it. It takes amazing photos. Great for vacations, kid's events, etc. Works well both indoors and outdoors. Even works works well in places where the lighting is poor.
Summary: I tried and tried to like this camera, but I can't. The quality of the pictures, even outside in day light are really bad and without vivid color. The auto mode it is a real joke, my smart phone takes better pictures and if you want to take pictures at interior, just forget about - takes awhile to focus, and when finally got the focus the picture still comes out blurry.
Excerpt: I loved taking pictures of friends and family so I was very excited when I received this camera as a birthday present last year. I have been so happy with it since day one. It is so easy to use and the touch screen is very slick. I especially love the different settings that allow me to take pictures that have one accent color. I also think it takes exceptional action shots. One really fun feature that I have enjoyed messing around with is the slow motion videos.
Excerpt: I bought this camera back in december 2010 for a christmas gift and I regret for buying it! The quality is not that great and there is alot of problems with the functions. You probably need a very steady hand when taking the pictures or else it will turn out very blurry. I am thinking of returning it and buying a new one. I have always like Canon but i dont think this one is worth the money. You are better off buying a different one.
The Canon - PowerShot SD980 IS is a great compact camera

Excerpt: The Canon - PowerShot SD980 IS / Digital IXUS 200 IS Digital Camera is an awesome point and shoot camera. I have a larger, digital SLR but sometimes it's just not convenient to take such a large camera so I bought this smaller point and shoot. It has many features that the bigger, more expensive cameras have. It is slim and can even slip into a pocket or purse. It has a good quality lense. You can also use this camera using the manual controls.
Excerpt: I used to have the SD880 and dropped it so i had to replace it and decided to upgrade to the SD980. It has a touch screen and face detection which i love! it has so many different setting for different scenes. it is the perfect point-and-shoot!!
Excellent Picture Quality with a little bit of noise

Excerpt: The Canon SD980/ IS is an excellent point and shoot camera. At first glance of the manual touchscreen controlsappear slightly confusing. Just try it. Turns it was a lot easier than I expected. The Canon's picture quality is excellent with a little bit of noise. The noise is nothing a Canon printer cannot clean up for you. One downside is that when you are in Auto there is no way to force flash. You have to go to programmable mode to force flash.
