Canon PowerShot SD970 IS / Digital IXUS 990 IS review
Mar 29, 2010

This camera does exist...and I love it.
I don't have a problem of out-of-focus picture like the
other reviewer. Its auto mode is very smart, I'd say. I
rarely have to adjust anything manually. I don't know if
the price has dropped now but when I got it, it was
pretty expensive. But everyone loves my camera! It
takes great pictures and HD video. I don't have the
washout color
problem either...and I've been using it since August
2009.
On top of that, I severely dropped this poor thing
twice (on a concrete surface, I might add) and it still
works fine. I never regretted buying it.
I didn't rate a 5 for the image quality because it still has
some noise problem when shooting in the dark,
though that is to be expected anyway.
Bottom line, if you are looking for an easy to use,
versatile functions, point-and-shoot camera for a
beginner...and you have the money...this is the one.
By the way, when I bought mine it comes with a
white leather case (pretty), tripod, 1GB memory SD
card (too little) and a clear sticker on LCD (protect
screen).

Problems:

no problem so far...my only frustration is that it is a bit
noisy when the camera refocuses automatically...and it
does that all the time if you're pointing in different
directions...so I can't really take candid pictures of my
friends when I tried to sneak a shot at them cuz they
hear it.
As mentioned...it still works fine even after I dropped it
twice. I think the damage is more severe on me
psychologically than on the camera! LOL
