Canon PowerShot SD940 IS Reviews


One of the best ultracompacts available, the Canon PowerShot SD940 IS nonetheless falls short of greatness in performance and photo quality.

The PowerShot SD940 IS Digital ELPH aka Digital IXUS 120 is Canon’s latest ultra-compact which lets you have your cake and eat it too.

Tech Radar

This is a simple camera to use, too. Yes, it’s very small and cosmetic appeal is a big part of its makeup, but it’s functional and sensible in how it goes about its business, and can wear its Canon badge without shame.

The SD940 is a great choice for a tiny camera that can make big images.
