Canon PowerShot SD970 IS / Digital IXUS 990 IS review

Camera was returned after 1 day of usage. I tested this camera out indoors and the performance was terrible. 9 out of 10 pictures where out of focus. The camere defaults the ISO at 400 when set to auto and the quality is awful. It's better if the set the ISO to 80 and let the flash brighted up the photo.

Now maybe I just received a bad camera, but I wasn't going to try this one out again. It was returned and I purchased another point and shoot with excellent results.

Problems:

Image quality was very bad.
Could not focus consistantly in low light (Indoors)
