"Disappointment!"2.0 starson by teriyakiboy
Pros: Excellent photos, fast and strong zoom, good customer service
Cons: Poor design, user unfriendly, heat up quick
Summary: I bought it to replaced my SD700 (Canon wanted $170 for repair?) I read SD890 replaced 700, so I placed an order. What a disappointment.
First, the operation is very difficult. I was so used to operate SD700 with one hand, I imagined the same with SD890 ? wrong! Almost every operation requires support hand, otherwise you really can?t navigate options or setting. Also its body is made of some poor plastic, and finish is very slippery. My wife also tried, but she had tough time holding as well. We also noticed the body heats up really quick, in 5 minutes you have a toasty hand warmer. anyways designers at Canon must be on summer vacation when this one came out, its just horrible camera to work with. Photo quality is awesome, typical canon quality, but I just have to say it is not user friendly at all.
Newegg doesn?t have return policy, so we are keeping it for now, but I?m sure it will be on ebay soon.
