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.
  • 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.

Disappointing

L. A. Keller, Amazon

  • Summary: I had been using a 3.2 mega-pixel Sony Cybershot for the last 5 years. The pictures always came out great but it was clearly time to upgrade. I bought the 880. Immediately I had problems with a message that kept coming up to change the battery pack even though it had been fully charged.

Great features, image quality issues

  • Summary: This is my third Canon and i was really looking forward to having all the latest tech updates in this model. However when taking pictures i noticed a certain softness in the focusing and quality seemed kind of grainy when viewed at %100.

great potential, but too much noise

  • Summary: I am photographer with years of experience and have used over two dozen digital cameras (from DSLRs to point-and-shoots). This is a fine camera, except that it suffers from excessive noise (even at 80 and 100 ISO) for it to be fully useful.

Not impressed!

  • 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...

Bildqualität nur mäßig

Mainmaus, Amazon

  • 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.

déçue par cet appareil

25 June 2009
  • Summary: Je cherchais un appareil compact en complément de mon bridge canon I5 IS parfois lourd et encombrant. Bien que consciente que la qualité serait certainement un peu moindre, l'ixus 870 IS m'a profondément décue dès les première photos : difficile de prendre les enfants en intérieur, photos floues et...
  • Pros: grand écran, appareil bien fini
  • Cons: bruitage important, photos floues ( enfants)couleurs trop sombres,  flash trop faible en intérieur

Gute Kamera mit schlechter Bild-Qualität

A. Ziegler, Amazon

  • Summary: Ich habe mich hier sehr nach den Rezensionen beeinflussen lassen und mir diese Kamera bestellt. Nach langen und umfangreichen Tests kann ich leider nur sagen, dass ein vernüftiges Bild in einer guten und vernünftigen Qualität nur sehr schwer möglich ist.
