Buyers beware! Obvious defect...puff of smoke coming out of flash

DD "DD", Amazon
19 August 2009
  • 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.

Pretty Good! Not Excellent

Cockypops, Amazon
19 January 2009
  • 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.

BEWARE of video problems

John 13000, Amazon
17 December 2008
  • Summary: I have bought cannon powershots for years and they have always taken video in .AVI format. BEWARE This camera model does not. For some unknown reason this 880IS camera takes video in .MOV format which most of my software does not recognize.

Would get 5 stars if only the noise problem is not so obvious

PickyBuyer W. Batt, Amazon
12 November 2008
  • 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.

Nothing Special

  • Excerpt: 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.
  • 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 as impressed as others

Steve, Amazon
15 December 2008
  • 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.

Canon Digital Ixus 870 Is digital camera Review

kusti, Unbeatable
10 February 2008
  • 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
