Just check the local hardware store ..and see some of the same dimension cause they are not personalized for a model ..or check if there is a cell phone /camera shop ..they have to have some ....
or ..if you want the original get them from here ..but they seam a little expensive to me ..

I have the SD790 IS, and the zoom button seems to be stuck/sticking making it very difficult to get the camera to zoom (or playback to zoom) however, when it does, it "jumps" to where it wants to...

The SD790 has a problem with the power button and sometimes the zoom switch, thankfully they are on the same assembly. You can get a new part for $35 incl shipping, or have it installed for just $30 more.

Another design flaw of this camera is:

If you haven't checked the screws recently on the handstrap side of your SD790 to make sure they are tight, I would advise doing so. Actually, take them out and secure them with Locktite, because if you don't they will fall out and the whole side of your camera will fall off.

If you need the zoom switch replaced, I happen to know the shop linked below would check and secure your screws for you at no additional cost!

How much memory can be expanded to maximum in canon sd790??rushab

You can expand the memory as much as you want. The SD790 uses SD and SDHC cards, which go up to 32GB each. You can swap cards in and out, as many as you want. However, I would strongly suggest you transfer the pictures to your computer on a regular basis instead of storing them on your camera and/or memory card.

What size screw do I need for the canon powershot sd790 is side strap panel? Both of them have fallen out.

The Canon SD790 has a problem where the two screws in the side of the camera work themselves loose over time, then fall out. Many times people lose the two side body pieces of the camera as well!

Both screws need to be put back in place and held in with 'Locktite' so they don't fall out again.

If you do a Google search for "Canon SD790 screws " you will see in the #1 position Darntoothysam com, where you can buy the exact OEM Canon screws for $7 including shipping.

Hope this helps!

I need the plate and screws that cover the side of the camera with the wriststrap holder on a Canon SD790IS.

Those screws always fall out, you can get replacement parts online and make sure you put a little "Locktite" on them to hold them in so they don't fall out again.

If you do a Google search for "Canon sd790 handstrap piece" you will see a listing in the #1 position where you can buy them for about $15 for the parts including shipping.

Hope this helps!

Replacement screws

FYI I just called Canon (1-800-828-4040) about the screws.
They are sending 2 screws out to me free of charge "as a one time courtesy."
Perhaps they got lots of complaints.
Thanks for your help
