Canon PowerShot SD940 IS Conclusions

October 19, 2009 by Andy Stanton Reads (3,515)


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.

It takes very good pictures in good light and has a small but effective flash. Even though it does not allow direct control over aperture and shutter speed, it has many options available so you can tailor the picture to your satisfaction. Its only significant downsides are that it takes soft photos at high ISOs and exhibits some chromatic aberration.
