We've given the SD950 IS a grade of C+.

Editor's Review

This is an old model, and has since been replaced by several new cameras. The most recent update is the SD1300. Here's what we had to say when the SD950 was released in October 2007:

We're big fans of the Canon SD ultracompact line as it is, but the Canon SD950 IS might be their most appealing model yet. It's a slim, trim compact camera cast in a titanium body that's both durable and stylish. Inside that metal shell, there's a big 12 megapixel CCD, giving users high-levels of detail and the ability to make larger and larger digital prints. Thankfully, Canon has finally seen fit to include Image Stabilization in all their new cameras, and the SD950 IS surely benefits from it.

Very capable and excellent choice for a slip in your pocket camera. (Flateric — 11/27/2009)

An excellent camera with excellent incamera functions and features.

My favorite digital camera ever in the slip into your pocket class.

Little to no noise in normal lighting conditions and excellent clarity and color reproduction. The very high resolution is a big bonus ontop of these points.

Stunning Pictures - Just Push the Button (Phil — 05/06/2008)

Excellent pictures for such a small camera. The flash does a great job filling in dark backgrounds. I recently broke my wife's Canon A540 and replaced it with a Nikon S550 which doesn't measure up to the older A540. I have played around with the 950 and am very impressed with the camera. There is no way my wife can find fault with this little jewel. The only negative thing I can say, is the Manual leaves a lot to be desired, but then my wife has never read one anyway.

The Best for now (Gustavo Silveira — 03/08/2008)

I can say that I am pretty impressed.
I have an old Nikon Coolpix 3500 that was really practical as the display could be rotated and you could see yourself and that shots but wasn`t good in low light and was capable only of very short, low res movies.
My new Cannon solved all that but doen`t have the rotational display that was very good.
With my new IXUS 960 IS(SD 950 IS) I can do anything as a Point and Shot with TOP PERFORMANCE. I love the movie mode and the quality of it, even in low light. I also love the exquisite Titanium Body, it is special. I see no cons as a PS but next could be exactly like this with a simple remote.

Very Please (ColoradoDave — 10/30/2007)

I purchased the SD950IS about a month ago and am very pleased. Nice size. Images excellent quality. Works really well with Sandisk Extreme III SD cards (very fast). Display of buttons (when pushed) on the LCD very good (ie, when you change the flash setting this comes up large on the LCD). Would prefer AA batteries, but I guess they had to go to other baterry due to size. Really like the ability to custom program the timer (ie, can set both time until the photo is taken and also the number of images that will be taken).
