"Poor Warranty fulfillment"

Mickey McRoberts, CNET
17 August 2009
  • Pros: Great pictures, beautiful design, titanium
  • Cons: Unable to repair my 11 month old, "in warranty" camera. Technician suggested that living in Florida could be the reason with its high ambient humidity! Final determination: water damage; no repair, no further explanation and no replacement.

Photography Review
25 June 2009
  • Summary: This camera produced disappointing images. They were unsharp (with or without image stabilization turned on), the colors were inaccurate, and despite efforts to improve things in Photoshop, the pictures remained crappy. At first I thought it was due to the fact that is a tiny camera with a tiny sensor (I was used to using DSLRs). But then the camera was stolen (a fortunate event!
  • Pros: Wide angle capability is very useful
  • Cons: General poor picture quality., Controls and menu system were IMO counterintuitive

  • Summary: I am very disappointed with this camera. About 10% of the pictures I took are blurry, it seems to me that the camera is unable to focus. I just bought it because I read very good reviews, maybe I was unlucky with this unit.

Bad low light photos

Martin, B&H Photo
30 March 2009
  • Summary: My 4 year old Casio took better low light photos than this camera. Other photos turned out good or even great but when compared in close up the result was less impressive. I took photos with "normal" file size quality on both cameras (Canon & Casio). The Canon photos were twice as big with only overall 20% photo improvement.
  • Pros: Comfortable Controls, Easy Setup
  • Cons: Poor Operation in Low Light

Noise a very big issue in this camera.

  • Summary: My dissatisfaction with the Canon SD880IS all stem from really missing my old Fujifilm F30. That good old camera has the best lens/CCD of any point-n-shoot that I've ever seen. Even ISO1600 photos were usable. Everything was low noise. But [*] the two F30's that I've owned all crashed way before reaching 2 full years of use.
  • Pros: Bright LCD, Comfortable Controls, Easy Setup, Easy to Keep Clean, Easy To Use, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Grainy, Noise, Poor Operation in Low Light, Weak Flash

Canon Digital Ixus 870 IS: Nothing Special

Gtest, Dooyoo
26 October 2011
  • Summary: The Canon IXUS 870 IS is a compact point and shoot camera with a range of special features for those wishing to try out some more creative effects. It has a solid, by current standards somewhat chunky build, and an extendable 4x optical zoom built in lens. We have had this camera for about 3 years now and it is still working really well and looks only a tiny bit worse for wear.
  • Pros: Has some neat features, relatively compact, has lasted well.
  • Cons: Photo quality isn't great, features are unnecessary, not as slim/cheap as other low budget cameras.

Not impressed!

Jo Jo, Amazon

  • Summary: My poor Ixus 950IS was close to dying and I was on my way to South Africa.. so I brought the Ixus 870IS at the last minute. Camera looks smart and has a fab 3 inch screen.. However, picture quality the MAJORITY of the time was poor despite trying various settings (I'm not particularly a novice in photography!). I resorted using my battered Ixus 950IS for the last part of the holiday which provided me with much better image quality.

  • Summary: I just bought this today and already within the first 5 shots there were serious 'spots' on the photos. The flash was off so it's not a reflection. Thinking about taking it back tomorrow.

Bildqualität nur mäßig

Mainmaus, Amazon
28 December 2009
  • Summary: Über den ganzen technischen Schnick Schnack möchte ich mich nicht äussern. Es muss jeder selbst für sich entscheiden ob er zig Motivprogramme braucht und für jedes Motiv sich erst überlegen muss, welches Programm denn das Richtige ist. Die Kamera an sich ist sehr klein und liegt auch so in der Hand. Die Geschwindingkeit der Kamera ist bei Weitem ausreichend. Das Display ist groß und sehr scharf. Die Menüführung ist ok. Schnappschüsse können jederzeit gemacht werden.
