Released September, 2008
The Pros:Newly upgraded DIGIC 4 image processor for superior speed and image quality. Continuously focuses on half-push, does not simply focus once. Lower high ISO noise compared to older models.
The Cons:No high definition video mode. Smaller 2.5" screen with only 230K pixels. Inferior zoom for a point and shoot this price.

The 3.7X Optical and 4X Digital Zoom found on this camera is not the strongest Canon puts out in the PowerShot line up, but the Optical Image Stabilizer feature will account for advancement. The 14.7 Megapixel Resolution puts this cameras potential on a higher level than other PowerShots. On-top of the 2.5” LCD monitor a Viewfinder is installed, for added convenience, along with a built-in flash that has a Red-Eye Reduction feature. Keeping this unit small and light, at 165grams, is the rechargeable Lithium-ion NB-5L battery. Lastly, like most other Canon PowerShot models, the SD950 IS comes preloaded with a variety of shooting modes and features.
