Canon PowerShot SD950 IS Digital ELPH Discussion
Read our review of the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS Digital ELPH camera!..

Comments (14)

I'm considering this camera but can't find the info I need about the battery. Does it only use a rechargeable? Can it use single use ones? I easily take 200-300 pictures a day when I travel. The crv3 batteries that I presently use, can handle a week of this, and I can replace the battery easily. Using a battery charger is not always an option...

I'm considering this camera but can't find the info I need about the battery. Does it only use a rechargeable? Yes. It uses the Canon NB-5L proprietary Lithium Ion rechargeable. There are a number of 3rd party imitations available, but they are not intended to work any differently than the Canon battery. Can it use single use ones? No. I easily take 200-300 pictures a day when I travel.

Makes me wonder whether the use you're talking about is with a film camera...

Right now I use a kodak easyshare cx7530. I took 1200 pictures during my China trip on 3 cvr3 batteries. I want to upgrade to a camera with more "bells and whistles" but worry about having to recharge batteries in foreign countries. The reviews of this camera seem to be quite favorable. I haven't been able to find one in a local store to actually check it out. Are you familiar with it?..

Right now I use a kodak easyshare cx7530. I took 1200 pictures during my China trip on 3 cvr3 batteries. Ok, so an average of 400 shots per battery. From the wording in your first post, I thought you were saying that you used 1 battery for 7 days, at 200 to 300 shots per day, or 1400 to 2100 shots per battery. 400 is easier to accept, and still very impressive. I want to upgrade to a camera with more "bells and whistles" but worry about having to recharge batteries in foreign countries.

I dont know for certain, but I would expect that covers what you would find in almost any place that has electricity. You would need an adaptor plug to match foreign outlets, but not a voltage converter. The reviews of this camera seem to be quite favorable. I haven't been able to find one in a local store to actually check it out. Are you familiar with it? Not exactly.

Im sure there would be a lot of similarities, but undoubtedly some differences that I wouldnt be aware of. Ive enjoyed the SD800, and never been sorry I bought it. I now have a Nikon D80, but the SD800 is still my carry it with me everywhere, every day camera...

Thanks! Your answers have been very helpful to me...

I am considering the SD950is but can't find anything in the Imaging Resource review / comments or the manual (see attached) about whether you can regulate (ie. decrease) the flash as it seems you can on the G9. Does the SD950is have this feature ? Thanks ! Bill McLaughlin Attachments:.

Does the SD950is have this feature ? I don't have the 950, but I have an SD800IS and I expect that they operate the same way in this regard. And that is: you can't set flash compensation separately from overall exposure compensation. So if you're using flash for fill, you can't reduce just the flash. I haven't found this to be a problem, however.

The exposure compensation does affect the flash, though. So if your shots where the flash is the main light source are overexposed, you can use the exposure compensation to get a proper exposure...

Does this camera Canon PowerShot SD950 IS Digital ELPH accept 2GB SD memory cards? I had a 1 gb and it works fine. HOwever, when I put my 2gb in it.... the camera doesn't even turn itself on.... Any comments?..

Comment #9

I am considering buying a Canon S5 IS digicam. I currently have a Starblitz 3600 DTZ flash that I use with my older AE1. The question that Canon will not answer is:.

Is this flash compatible with the S5 IS.

Thanks for any help.

Are the photos from the Canon SD950 noticeably better than those from the SD850?..

Comment #11

At the end of the site says canon SD950 (or other word named 960is) has touchscreen feature. But I can't read anywhere else. Does it have or not touchscreen? http://www.canon.com.hk/En/Consumer/Product/ProductDetail.aspx?product_id=100095&series_id=28&tag_id=12035 Thanks.....

Hi, great reviews and forum! I'm considering the SD950-IS as a replacement for a stolen SD630. I've read reviews saying the 950-IS's optical zoom does not work in movie mode. Is that correct? I seem to remember the 630 as being able to optically zoom during movies. It had a great setting whereby you could completely turn off the digital zoom. Can the 950-IS do this? Also, what is the maximum memory card the 950-IS could use, and what would be the best type for shooting movies? Class 4, Class 6? Are there batteries available which would last longer than the one that comes standard with the 950-IS? Any brands of batteries or memory cards which you would recommend for quality? Thanks for sharing your expertise!.

Looking for a sub compact camera largely to take photos at concerts i.e. low light, much use of telephoto lens. This camera, though highly rated seems to have an especially slow lens. Will the lack of manual settings make this bad for concert use coupled with the slow lens? Any suggestions?..
