Stunning Pictures and Videos but Macros are useless

Summary: Pros: Great pictures, 4x zoom, 10 MP, 3 in LCD, Face detection, light weight Cos: Lens closing problem, zoom in video capturing, I would call this an average camera. I've been using it for about 2 years now. It takes great pictures in daylight even when you are using zoom. I was amazed at how good the zoomed pics came out to be. It is light weight and easy to use. It has face detection technology and a lot of preset settings.
Would get 5 stars if only the noise problem is not so obvious

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 (probably because it's Made in Ch---) the two F30's that I've owned all crashed way before reaching 2 full years of use. Yes, I had liked the camera so much that after the first one died I bought another one to replace it.
Buyers beware! Obvious defect...puff of smoke coming out of flash

Summary: I've been using this camera for 5 months now. I loved it because it takes very vibrant color photos and all the function buttons are user-friendly. However, recently there are signs of unusual puff of smoke coming out from the left corner of the camera when I take photos with flash. When there's no smoke, you can see the the flash sparks brighter than before. I did a search on Google and many share the same problem. So buyers beware!!
Summary: For the pixel peeper set and those serious about image quality: The image quality of SD880IS fell a little short of my expectations. My last camera was a Canon S70 (7MP) which is now quite old, but it still produces better per-pixel sharpness, except wide open in the corners, than the SD880IS.
Summary: I bought a Canon Ixus 870 due to the good experiences of older Canon cameras and I wanted a replacement for my Sony P-9 which I've used for 5 years or so, the wide angle lens was also an added bonus. The first one from Amazon had a damaged LCD screen plus I wasn't happy with the quality of the pictures taken. Amazon replaced it very quickly so full marks to Amazon and their carriers for that.
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. This alone is enough to skip this model and get something that does not require a memory card reader or With Canon You Just Can''t -crappy software.
Cons: PC/Mac software - USB connectivity: does not appear as mass storage device on your desktop
Summary: Acabo de estrenar la cámara, que me he comprado por internet, y a mi también me salen burbujas blancas en muchas fotos con flash. No es problema del objetivo, porque está limpio. Es una lástima. Salen tantos puntos blancos que las fotos quedan fatal. Una decepción.
Summary: La tengo desde hace 10 meses, ya comente en su día todo perfecto hasta que hace un par de meses tengo el problema que al actuar el flash sale humo de esta zona´de la cámara, me gustaría que alguien me comentara si también le ha ocurrido este problema. Gracias de antemano.
Summary: Tengo que decir que despues de unos meses de utilizar esta camara, estoy muy descontento por lo siguiente... 1. Si usas el flash, la foto sale llena de manchas blancas. 2. Si haces fotos con el angular al maximo, tiene un viñeteo inaceptable, esquinas completamente oscuras. 3. Tiene otros problemas menores, como que no hay por donde agarrarla y la pantalla se pone perdida de mierda a la segunda foto que haces, el fallo que detecto canon en modo mascotas...
