Canon SD970 IS / IXUS 990 IS Price Watch and Availability

First published on: Thursday, 19 February 2009

The price of most digital cameras tend to trend downwards over time, and the same price drop should occur in the case of the Canon Powershot SD970IS compact digital camera.

The SD970 IS is known as Canon Digital IXUS 990 IS in Europe.

I’m not planning for any scheduled updates, but do check back here from time to time for the latest and best prices on the Canon SD970 IS and related accessories.

The SD970 comes in only one color, silver.

Canon PowerShot SD970IS 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 5x Optical Zoom and 3.0-inch LCD (Silver): $279.00 ($10 reduction increase since the last update).

Typical accessories for the SD970
Canon NB-5L Battery Pack — Purchase additional batteries so that your SD970 continues to have a backup power source during extended shooting sessions.

Mini-HDMI connector — This enables you to directly connect the SD970 to your HDTV or high-definition monitor and view HD movies with no degradation in image or audio quality.

For storage, the SD970IS uses SD or SDHC cards.

Refer to Rob Galbraith’s SD / SDHC card write speed tests (done on a Nikon D90) to get an idea on the relative write and read speeds of different brands of cards. At the time of writing (Oct 29, 2009), the SanDisk Extreme III SDHC cards occupy the top two spots.

To ensure smooth recording of video and high resolution images, go for Class 6 or faster cards.

Good luck shopping for your Canon SD970 IS!
