Canon PowerShot SD940 IS

 

The Canon PowerShot SD940 IS may be tiny (think cell-phone size), but it packs lots of goodies.

Very small build. Simple user interface. Fast shooting speeds. HD video capture. Mini-HDMI out.

Small control buttons. Images are soft.

Canon PowerShot SD940 IS review

 

A follow-up of sorts to the SD780 IS , the Canon PowerShot SD940 IS is another very small, very lightweight 12-megapixel camera. It drops the SD780's optical viewfinder, and in its place gets a larger 2.7-inch LCD in back, and a wide-angle...

Very small; simple operation; very good photo, HD movie quality; HDMI out.

No optical zoom in Movie mode; mixed performance.

One of the best ultracompacts available, the Canon PowerShot SD940 IS nonetheless falls short of greatness in performance and photo quality.

Canon Digital IXUS 120 IS Review

 

The Canon Digital IXUS 120 IS (also known as the PowerShot SD940 IS Digital ELPH) is the slimmest ever IXUS / ELPH camera. Measuring 20mm thick, the 12 megapixel Canon 120 IS compact camera also offers a 4x optical zoom lens with an wide 28mm setting...

Those looking for a portable, well-built, eye-catching snapshot model with a smattering of cappuccino bar style for weekend breaks or social events could do worse than check out Canon's Digital IXUS 120 IS. While its asking price would buy a competing...

Canon PowerShot SD940 IS

 

At 12.1-megapixels, the Canon PowerShot SD940 IS is a powerful digital camera with plenty of features and it comes in a small sized device. The shooting speed is also very quick and the price is not much either, so it will go easy on your budget as...

Small, lightweight size ; Fast shooting speeds & low shutter lag ; HD video capture & output via mini-HDMI port

Buttons are small ; Image quality is mediocre at times

Review Of The Canon PowerShot SD940 IS Camera

 

The menu system, has undergone renovation, and boy oh boy does it work. Whenever you get confused as to which mode would click the perfect shot, or  you have no clue in which mode you have stepped into, the menu system  helps you out with prompts and...

Compact; easy to use interface; good image quality; HDMI out; high-def movie quality

Inconsistent performance; optical zoom absent in movie mode

Canon has produced some good cameras over their period , and the SD940 can be included in that bracket too. In spite of that sloppy performance, it offered good quality images ,decent functions, and a design some might find attractive, all at a very...

Canon PowerShot SD940 IS Review

 

The Canon PowerShot SD940 IS bears a striking resemblance to the previous generation PowerShot SD780 IS.

Small size ; Good build quality ; HD video

Soft at high ISO ; Some chromatic aberration ; Smaller controls

The SD940 IS is a pleasure to use. It has excellent build quality and is very quick and responsive. Its small size makes it convenient to carry everywhere you go, so you're always ready to take advantage of an available photo opportunity.
