Canon PowerShot SD990 IS (Digital IXUS 980 IS) review

Great Camera. I usually carry a Nikon D700, but need a great Point and Shoot
sometimes. The D700 has spoiled me because it has outstanding IQ. The 990 has
been outstanding. I have sold about 5 to friends when they see the pictures it takes
and run out and buy one. I think the new DIGIC 4 processor has something to do with
the better quality than my older PowerShot SD550. I added an 8GB SD card so I can
take tons of pictures. I highly recommend this camera. I don't care for Nikon's small
cameras.

Problems:

No RAW file support. You have to use high quality JPEG.
