Comments about Canon Powershot SD950 IS Digital Camera:

Strong construction, and a lot of great features packed into a "Point and Shoot" camera. Great battery life. Took this on a recent vacation to Europe and was very pleased by it's versatility and size. The compactness of this camera enabled me carry it at all times so that a shot was not lost (no lugging around a lot of equipment). The 12.1 megapixels ensures a great print, as well.

Heard 12 megapixals cannot be sent on the internet...Cannon, could use some tech support on that. Most of us shoot, print and send via email. I'm sure there's an answer!
