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.
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 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

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.
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
Canon Ixus 870 IS!!!! The best camera for its price and size

Excerpt: To begin with, Canon Ixus 870 has an excellent picture quality. I was so amazed when I saw the image of the first picture taken out of it. I also figured out that it is truly an excellent point and shoot camera. I absolutely adore the size and the quality of the camera.
Pros: Good picture quality, big LCD display, easily accessible .
Excerpt: Love this product and cannot go on about it enough - have used it almost everyday. The build quality is superb and it really feels that it has been put together well. Battery life is great and you will get the whole day out of it easily, I always buy a spare just in case.
Excerpt: I brought this camera as a point and shoot as a lot of the time my digi SLR is just too bulky to carry around, and i often just dont bother. Having this camera to hand is great, i carry it nearly all the time, in a pocket, over the shoulder or in a rucksack, i cant believe i didnt try it sooner, the...
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.
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
