Summary: I've had this camera for over two years now and we absolutely love its performance. I know there are newer cams on the market that performs better, but the SD880IS is a solid camera. We have yet to have any issues with it and did change the battery out once, but that's it in terms of "maintenance.
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.
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.
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 ...
Summary: Using this camera for 2 years. Give very good picture quality outdoors but I'm not very happy with indoor picture quality. overall I would recommend this camera. In camera red eye correction does not work.
Summary: this is my grab n go camera when i dont want to bring around my DSLRs. the AF is pretty quick and the 3inch screen is clear. there are plenty of extra functions to play with. my favorites are P/Auto mode and digital macro. EXCELLENT macro capabilities if youre into that.
Summary: Nice wide angle. Nice big screen. When you power it on, it powers up really fast. But when you click the shutter, there's a significant time lag before the picture is taken - ah, well. How in the world do you force the flash on, like a fill-flash?
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.
Summary: i have to say this camera is an amazing point and shoot. I adore the variety of scene modes all though i cant figure out the color swap mode and the color A mode. I have only had for three days have used in a variety of situations and love it.
Summary: I bought this camera because my Canon EOS Digital, while very good and takes great pictures, is just too big to take everywhere we go. This Powershot is great for skiing, which we did last weekend, and to the beach, etc. It fits in your pocket easily and is very easy to use.
