At A Glance

It's very expensive for a pocket camera--and is too large for many pockets--but it's quite well made and performs admirably.

Manufacturer’s Description

An Ingenious Merger of Elegance and Power. The PowerShot SD950 IS Digital ELPH, with its curved sleek Titanium body, is as powerful as it is exquisite: There's a high-resolution 12.1 Megapixel CCD, an Optical Image Stabilizer and 3.7x optical zoom. Face Detection Technology is also on board to automatically give you just the shot you're looking for. Auto ISO Shift and ISO 1600 let you command low light like a pro. There's even a high-resolution 2.5-inch LCD that makes shooting and playback a delight.
