Excerpt: The Canon SD880is packs many preset features that allow for easy photography in various lighting situations. It is very small, which makes for extremely easy portability. It has 10 megapixels which allow users to take very large file photos that can later be cropped and still maintain quality. The fixed lens very wide for a point-and-shoot camera. The SD880is takes very high quality photos with the simplicity of using only AUTO mode.
Excerpt: I think that it is a must to have a camera in life, especially with children! My mother bought me this camera for Christmas and i use it almost every day. It is a digital camera and the screen on the back is pretty large. I have no issues looking at exactly what i am taking a picture of. The price of the camera was on the high side, but i get a lot use out of it. The features it has are plenty and i can easily zoom in and out with this camera.
Summary: The photo quality is impressive. video is good but the file format .MOV makes it hard to view or edit with most video software. Also, there is no optical zoom while recording video. There is digital zoom while recording video but it gets pixelated with the digital zoom. You can use the optical zoom in video mode before you record though but it is inconvienent when you are in the middle of recording and want to get closer. The creative features of the camera are nice.
Summary: Excellent camera overall. I have several SLR digital cameras which I use for telephoto and high speed sport shooting. Before this camera, I would lug the big ones on trips. While the quality of the big glass SLR's can't be beat, having this cam in my pocket means I get a lot more shots. The photos are credible enlarged up to 8X10, face recognition focus and auto ISO works great. I travel with my kids, and the movie feature is great.
Pros: Fits in a pocket, reasonbly durable, excellent battery life, and fast SD performance., LCD is bright and big enough to review pics & compose well. See problem below., Use this to get all the spontaneous shots you would miss with your big SLR.
Cons: Some report that the retracting lens mechanism is fragile. Never put it away with the lens out. I've logged thousands of pics without any problems., The only problem I had was that the LCD developed white spots. These did not affect the performance or pictures, but made it much harder to compose pics. Initially, I only had one, but later 2 more appeared. Seems others have reported this problem as well., I had the camera serviced by camerasandparts.com for 79.00. They ...
Excerpt: Not anything too major, but it’s a bit bothersome. If you don’t mind buying a camera around the $200.00-$300.00 range, be sure to check out Canon ’s line of cameras. I recommend it to any potential buyer looking for an awesome digital camera.
Excerpt: One bad point is that you cannot control the aperture and shutter speed of the camera. This is however not really a disadvantage as this is a point-and-shoot camera. If you need more control over your camera, you should go for a SLR, not a compact. Also, the screen, although very brilliant, is a fingerprint magnet. All in all, a very flexible point-and-shoot camera with additional features for budding amateur photographer to compose interesting pictures.

Excerpt: I've bought this camera based on the good reviews on the Canon brand itself as a premier camera manufacturer in the world. I expected this to be a solid camera and it didn't disappoint, I'm glad I've bought this camera. The picture quality taken with this camera is amazing, it's very sharp and its clarity beats my old Nikon camera that I've bought years ago to replace with this new Canon SD880 camera.
