Excerpt: I bought this camera to replace my SD400 which I had a broken LCD after I accidently smashed it. To my disappointment the face recognition on SD770 doesn't detect well, so alot of times, it focus on the wrong spots, and the image came out blurry. It's difficult to get the face recognition/focus to work on the spots that you want, so you have to repress the button many times to try to get it to detect right.
Excerpt: I am a Canon person. Almost every camera I have ever had has been a canon. I had an earlier model similar to this camera but it started to show signs of wear, especially on the digital screen and the mega pixels were only 4 or 5. I found this camera on clearance and decided to give it a shot since it was double the megapixels and took movies. Almost from the beginning I was dissapointed in the camera and preferred to use the older version.
Summary: My previous camera - a Canon IXUS suffered water damage on holiday - my water bottle leaked in my bag - and consequently did not work at all. On returning from hols, the natural replacement was the latest Canon IXUS model. It seems OK but am disappointed by the size of the viewing screen which is somewhat smaller than my previous camera. In hindsight I should have done more research before buying a replacement.
