On Steves review of the canon sd950is, it is described as a 12 mp camera. I am a little confused, because on canon uk, it is listed as a 8mp camera, yet the photo in Steves review shows the canon SD950is as 12 mp. Which is it??

Those are two different cameras.

Canon uses different model naming for different regions (Europe, U.S., Japan).

Both are correct for their respective models (the PowerShot SD950 IS that Steve reviewed is a 12 Megapixel Camera, and the Canon Digital IXUS 950 IS you're looking at on a Canon UK web site is an 8 Megapixel Camera.

Steve reviewed the Canon Powershot SD950 IS and you're looking at a UK model that's the Canon Digital IXUS 950 IS.

The Canon Digital IXUS 950 IS in Europe is the same camera as the Canon PowerShot SD850 IS in the U.S.

Thanks for that.
I suppose then that
Digital IXUS 960 IS is called the SD950 IS in the U.S.Buyers beware that you are ordering the right camera , especially if buying of the internet.
