Did not meet expectation

ccc, Amazon
28 September 2010
  • Summary: I have to say, I am disappointed at this camera. The new features including the touch screen is kinda cool but when you take photos, the touch function can actually be more cumbersome, leading to unintended changes of photo settings. And I am not happy with the photo quality. The color always seems a bit off and I see much more granularity than other people's point-and-shoot.

  • Summary: Likes: wide angle lens, size, wt. Dislikes: controls are different from earlier models. Not as easy or intuitive. You can use the screen glass like an iPhone butt sort of.

love this camera

Walmart
13 June 2010
  • Summary: This is a great item I purchased. The only thing I have a problem with is the battery storage with the little thing that is supposed to pop up and down when you put the battery in and this thing does not work properly, so I will be taking it back most likely to see if that is the way it works or it is bad.

  • Excerpt: I'm a DSLR user and a fan of the Elph/SD series, having purchased or used several over the years (SD600, SD800IS, SD870IS). With the recent loss of my elph, I looked to the latest incarnation of the Elph by default. My options in the 28mm range were the SD960IS (about 8 months old), SD940IS (similar sensor, only 28mm wideangle), S90 (low-light ISO performance, 28mm, mega-features, $$$) and this (touchscreen, 24mm wideangle).

Broad Zoom Range, With a Quality Compromise

David L. Staples "Aero Engr.", Amazon
14 December 2009
  • Summary: I can compare this product closely with the SD780IS camera (same sensor size and resolution), with which I have earlier familiarity. Disregarding fashionable bric-a-brac like the touch-screen menus, the chief advantage of the 980 is its significantly wider zoom range (24-120mm 35mm equivalent) versus that of the slightly smaller 780 (33-100mm 35mm equivalent).

Picture Quality is not up to Par

GadgetGuy, Amazon
14 December 2009
  • Summary: I have purchased 5 different SD model in the last 6 years. In terms of picture quality this is the worst in terms of low light conditions. Pictures indoor are filled with Noise in dark areas. This is not the case while shotting the same scene with my SD 880 and SD 960. My unit may be defective so your miles might vary.

Pricey with Lots of Features

Z8, Amazon
28 November 2009
  • Summary: This is a good little camera but don't expect miracles from Point and Shoots with tiny sensors. I wish the sensor was divided up into fewer pixels to reduce low-light noise. The pixel war has sacrificed low-light performance for bright-light resolution which is an out-dated compromise now that there are enough pixels. Strengths: - Does a great job on Auto.

  • Excerpt: this is my 3rd canon camera. S70, SD870IS are the first two camreas with excellent picture quality with superfine mode. dpreview website misguided me for the quality. they have posted quality level as super fine, fine and normal. i bought it and went overseas for vacation. i could not find the superfine mode. i had to take pictures in fine mode. when zooming in the review mode or in the computer, the pixels breaks and the photo's are fuzzy.

Canon PowerShot SD980 IS Digital ELPH 12.1 Megapixel

x1091, Ebay
9 September 2009
  • Summary: I really want to like this camera but I think this may have to go back. Indoor pictures are relatively grainy (ISO is 500+ on most even with the flash) and outdoor pictures look washed out. I compared the pictures to a 870 IS and the 870 came out ahead 5 out of 6 times (Not a scientific test, but both were with similar setings and mounted on a tripod and shot with a 2 second time delay to eliminate hand shake, ISO 200 on both cameras).
