Canon PowerShot SD980 IS review

 

The Canon PowerShot SD980 IS is a bit of a reworking of the SD960 IS . That model's design and features were sort of a letdown. The SD980 turns things around, though, by using a wider lens with longer zoom range, a bigger and now touch-screen LCD, and...

Small; good lens specs; appropriate mix of touch and button controls; HDMI output; excellent photo color, exposure.

Wide-screen LCD size misleading; touch-screen interface not for everyone; no optical zoom while recording movies.

The Canon PowerShot SD980 IS is a very good touch-screen camera for those on the fence about using a touch-screen camera.

Canon PowerShot SD980 IS

 

The PowerShot SD980 IS masters the touch-screen shooting experience, but some wide-angle image-quality issues hold it back from excellence.

Responsive touch screen with intuitive interface. Fast shooting speeds. 720p30 HD video capture. 24mm wide-angle lens. Accelerometer-based navigation. Mini HDMI out.

Significant barrel distortion at wide angle lens position. Soft image details at the edge of the frame.

Canon PowerShot SD300 Digital ELPH/Digital IXUS 40 Review

 

Announced at the end of September 2004, the SD300 (which goes by the names of Digital Ixus 40 in Europe and IXY DIGITAL 50 in Japan) is the latest in a long line of ultra-compact 'ELPH' or 'IXUS' cameras stretching back to early 2000 (and a lot farther...

Incredibly compact design Slim enough for any pocket or purse Beautifully built and all-metal construction Excellent color Manual (custom) white balance Very good resolution Good exposure and generally very reliable focus Good flash performance at...

Strong purple fringing Some edge softness at wide angle/max aperture Battery life when using LCD not fantastic Occasional lens flare No exposure information in record or playback mode Very little manual control

In an ideal world buying an ultra compact camera would not involve any compromise at all. But this ain't a perfect world, and if you want a camera you really can carry with you anytime, anywhere then you have to accept there will be some trade-off in...

Canon PowerShot SD980 IS

 

Overall, this is probably not the best digital camera for the price. The lack of features and image quality seems to steer many consumers to other cameras of the same price tier. Needless to say, if you are not picky about the minor problems, and you...

Sleek- ergonomic design is comfortable and easy to handleFeatured- 12.1-megapixel stills, 5x zoom, 720p HD video recordingUnique- integrated with Canon's first touch panel LCD camera display

Comparable- easily beat out by similarly-priced modelsQuestionable- price needs adjustment for features and quality

If you need a sleek digital camera with impressive image enhancement and...

Canon Digital IXUS 200 IS review

 

Canon aptly participates in the Megapixel race with the IXUS 200 IS. The small compact cameras already feature an extremely tiny image sensor, and to apply it with no less than 12 million pixels seems to be a contradiction. However, not as far as...

Canon Digital IXUS 200 IS Review

 

The Canon Digital IXUS 200 IS (also known as the PowerShot SD980 IS Digital ELPH) is the first-ever touchscreen IXUS / ELPH camera. You can focus on a subject by simply pointing at their face, review your images and change the camera settings, all via...

Given that this is a point and shoot pocket camera, not a tank-like super zoom nor bridge model, Canon may struggle to justify the price of the Digital IXUS 200 IS and indeed a quick internet search will reveal better deals; we found one major retailer...

Canon Digital IXUS 200 IS

 

The Digital IXUS 200 IS proves why Canon's digital cameras are popular with so many people

Although Canon’s Digital Ixus 200 is expensive, it will help you take fantastic shots regardless of your level of skill.

Canon Digital IXUS 200 IS / PowerShot SD980 IS ELPH

 

Announced in August 2009, the Canon Digital IXUS 200 IS, also known as the PowerShot SD980IS ELPH in North America, is the first Canon compact to feature a touch-screen. The 3in 16:9 wide touchscreen can be used to focus, select scene modes and other...

3in 16:9 touch-screen with tap-focusing ; 5x zoom with 24mm equivalent wide angle ; 720p HD video with matching screen shape ; Excellent image quality

Beyond focusing, touch-screen is a bit of a novelty ; Slow continuous shooting ; Poor battery life ; Modest 5cm macro mode
