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: Although this camera is not slim, it is far from being a brick. No doubt, you will feel the weight of the camera in your pocket, but still it is mobile and light enough for everyday uses. Startup time of the camera is very quick. This camera is suited for point-and-shoot. The auto mode is usually good enough for most situations. On the other hand, there are also alot of options to play with, such as filter and scene mode.
Summary: I did a lot of online research, and this Canon came up as the universal winner for this year (early 2009) at this price point...not just at the tech sites but also the photography sites that I respect. The photography sites rarely review compact cameras as they are mostly focused on SLR and "Pro-sumer" equipment. However, when they do look at compacts, I think their reviews can be extremely valuable.
