    Great Camera!

    Customer review by HottttMommy

    I returned two other Cannons that were less expensive just to buy this one that my sister has because there is virtually no delay. It is worth the extra money, especially when you have kids and you want get their expression at that moment not 2 seconds later when it is gone. I like the date stamp and pics are crystal clear. I like how small and easy it is to use too.

    Customer review by TexasScopist

    I have had about ten digital cameras over the last 12 years... my kids get my hand-me-downs. I currently use a Canon SX20is and LOVE it. However, carrying it around with me all the time was just not practical. I panicked the first time I hit my purse against a doorjamb! I wanted a small P/S camera that I could have with me wherever I was. This is a perfect little camera! My mom has the SD780 and when I researched, I went with the SD940 based on all the reviews out there. I'm not disappointed. The battery life is good. I take a LOT of pictures at a time and then discard what I don't want to keep. I experimented yesterday with the SX20 and the SD940 on some macro shots with some new plants and it was actually easier to get crisp, clear macro shots with the SD940! I was using a monopod with each camera, so it wasn't the weight of the larger camera keeping me from getting a clear shot. My low light shots have been amazingly crisp. I'm extremely happy with this small P/S camera that I can have with me at all times.

    As a pro photographer I was looking for a pocket camera. except when i'm working, carrying my DSLR, lenses and equipment is something I don't do. Yet, I feel the need for one. I chose the DS940 because, for me, the quality and size fits my needs. The size is perfect; fits in my cell phone case. The sd940 is sharp and the image quality is better than I expected from such a small camera. Although the auto setting works excellently, I enjoy shooting in the "P" mode because it offers additional controls. I am not an equipment junkie I think this camera will be with me for a long, long time.
