Canon PowerShot SD990 IS (Digital IXUS 980 IS) review

This cam take exelent pictures,Better then other small camera's I have,It is fast,and iff you use it for an point and shoot camera,you wil find yourself out of job,the camera handle everything for you.However you have full manuel control over the cam.
at wide de camera can take pictures in not so good light.
but at tele you need more light,the lens at 5.8 is to slow to use in less then stellar light.resulting in poor pictures.
De handle of the camera is abit wierd,the camera have no real soft holding paterns so the camera slip easy out of your hands.
At wide the camera produce soft corners,in all of the best light.
Batterie live is exelent,and lcd screen while not one of the biggest,have a good view clear and bright.
All by all it is an good cam,react fast whrite fast,but it is no dslr.
Even with an little bit bigger sensor the diference is small.
but stil better then other cams out there.
the files are heavy 7 MB to 9 MB is cammon for this cam,however the prise thad sd cards cost,is not an problem.


Softcorners at wide.
Dificult to handle.
