Canon PowerShot SD990 IS (Digital IXUS 980 IS) review

I previously owned canon ixus i7 and really really disappointed with it. however when one of my flatmate sold this SD990 i tried every possible way and was shocked with the ability of this great look like ford mustang GT design. i tried using in low light, i tried using in long exposure, i tried using outdoors and wallllla! i suddenly said i need this camera for everyday use and definitely love to play the manual mode.

Landscape at low light is best suit for this small camera.

Landscape at day time is best suit for this small camera.

Smoke photography using the burst of the build in flash has above average for this small camera as well.


For a beginner there is no issue using the auto mode, but if you try to experiment the P and M mode it is a little tricky and hard to handle you really need to focus and remember the settings you did. i shoot thousand and came across only 20% of satisfied captures. however it takes practice to master this camera.
