Black Screen of Death!
16 March 2009
Summary: First, I would like to say that I love Canon cameras and have owned many, including an SD1100 that worked great for me. I have owned the SD880 for 3 weeks (bought from Amazon). I am currently on the trip of a lifetime to Rome and Paris.
Summary: I had read alot of the reviews. I have a sd800is and love it. In fact, incredible sharp pictures. But wanted the screen and wheel of the sd880is. I saw the reviews which said grainy, but thought for sure I wouldn't get the camera with the bad optics or electronics or whatever it is that is making a...
Summary: Be aware that if your Canon camera fails within the first year of ownership, you may be charged $109, ("Flat rate repair charge, + shipping") to get your camera repaired. If you are talking about a $200 camera, would you pay that? If you are deciding between two different brands, factor this in.
Summary: Images are spotty, grainy, and sometimes blurry. I send it to Canon for repair; they changed the lens assembly. However; that didn't solve the problem. There was no change in image quality. Canon tech support asked me send it back for second time. This time, they paid for shipping.
SD880 delivers blurry, unclear pictures! So disappointed !!!

Summary: I was very disappointed in the photo quality of SD880 too. I previously owned the A520, A530. The pictures were very clear & sharp, The colors were very good too!!I loved Canon & took A530 with me wherever I went.
Summary: I was very disappointed in the photo quality of this camera. I previously owned the SD850, which I loved and it took wonderful clear photos, even indoors. Sadly, I dropped it and broke the lens and decided to just order a new camera.
Summary: I've had the SD870IS for over a year now and I can tell you that it's the best Powershot camera Canon has ever produced. Something went terribly wrong with the SD880IS camera Canon recently came out with and this is why you should look towards getting the SD870IS over the SD880IS.
Summary: I purchased this camera from Amazon. It was delivered from the U.K. (Pixamania) through Amazon. The LCD has two white speckles on it (inside).I would expect for the price payed that the product would be perfect. I now have to return it to Pixamania in France.
Excerpt: The canon camera is great, except that you need to use Canon''s crappy PC/Mac software to download images if you want to use the USB connection - does not appear as a mass storage device on your desktop! And you cannot download more than 1000 images.
Cons: PC/Mac software - USB connectivity: does not appear as mass storage device on your desktop
