Editor's Review

This model is way past its prime and has since been replaced. It most closely resembles the new Canon Powershot SD1400 IS. Here's what we had to say about the SD890 when it was released in March 2008.

Canon just keeps making new cameras. The SD890 IS is a bump up, marrying a 10-megapixel sensor with lens-shift image stabilization, making this tiny ultracompact a very appealing package. Additionally, the SD890 IS features a 5x optical zoom lens, perhaps the largest lens available in an ultracompact style model. If you're looking for highly-detailed photographs and the confidence and reliability of a great brand, the Canon SD890 IS is a sure winner.

Canon Powershot SD890 IS Reviews by Digital Camera-HQ Users

Canon Powershot SD890IS (Mary Alford — 02/13/2010)
Not worth the price if the lens locks up and will not retract. Not worth getting fixed. Very disappointed!

Lens Lock up and will not reset. (Don Sutton — 09/14/2009)

I have had this camera for 9 months. Purchased at Costco so the warranty was up with them. It took good pictures but if it breaks after 9 months then what good is the good picture taking. Thanks Cannon I will never purchase another Cannon product. Would never recommend.

Locked up 3x's (paula — 08/18/2009)

We've had our camera for just over a year. During the first month the lens locked open and the store replaced it. 4-5 months later it happened again and Canon repaired it under warranty. Now at 14 months the lens locked again and it will cost more to repair than to replace. The pictures are beautiful and the camera was easy to use, but the camera lens needs to be dependable.

Good while it lasted (Shelly Kidd — 07/29/2009)

I've only had this camera 10 mths & it just broke. You turn it on and the focus is super blurry. Very disappointed! My old & cheaper Kodak still takes good pictures. Not worth the price for sure!
