Canon Powershot SD780 IS
29 September 2011
Summary: The Canon Powershot SD780 IS distinguishes itself by being one of the slimmest ultra-compacts and by its HD movie-mode (720p). The remainder of its specifications are quite simple: a 12 megapixels sensor with ISO up to 1600 and a minimal 3X optical zoom lens. Given that few such smaller cameras do HD, the SD780 is work a look.
Pros: Low image noise at lowest ISO settings, Natural rendition of image colors, Above average white-balance performance, Very fast and responsive, Excellent LCD visibility, Excellent build quality
Cons: Tendency to overexpose, Loss of details starts at ISO 200, Limited use ISO 800 and 1600, Severe edge softness, Shutter lag when flash is on is too long, Limited dynamic-range, Too few zoom steps, Difficult to hold securely, Poor battery-life
