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.
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: This is my third Canon PowerShot camera. I love them -- but I've also come to realize that they can't be expected to have a long life span even with the greatest amount of care. My last two were returned to Canon while under warranty for "lens error" notifications that occurred completely out of the blue. Canon repaired & replaced what needed to be done at no cost, but it was an inconvenience & annoyance.
Canon PowerShot SD980IS is an excellent point-and-shoot

Excerpt: The Canon PowerShot SD980IS is an excellent point and shoot. I bought this camera off of Amazon.com refurbished for around $150, and and that price I feel it is a great value. Canon has implemented a touch screen on this camera that can be used for many function, but the camera retains mechanical buttons for those that prefer a real button to press. The major advantages of this camera include that high definition video of any length, and the VERY wide angle lens.
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
9 September 2012
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
9 September 2012
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.
Excerpt: We lost the ixus70 i new york and got this as a replacement. It sucs. Its bulky compared to the smaller 70/80/90 Image quality is very poor compared to the old ixus - also when you downsample to compare. Contrast is bad. Macro sucs even more. In good light pictures are ok, but not more. Dont get this camera!
