Canon PowerShot SD990 IS (Digital IXUS 980 IS)

Announced Sep 17, 2008 •
15 megapixels | 2.5 screen | 36 – 133 mm (3.7×)

Upgrading my pocketshooter from an SD700IS, I soon came to appreciate the new manual features. I also greatly like the shortcuts (single button boost to 100% screen brightness for instance, programmable buttons) and the dedicated PLAY button. Yet, the cameras shortcomings nullify almost all the good new stuff: For instance: * Monitor screen is now the highest surface on the back. It WILL scratch when lying on that side (on the SD700 the monitor was recessed 1mm into frame. A much better solution)
