Very slick and compact but could use some improvement on image stabilization

  • Summary: I would recommend the product as an all-purpose camera to carry with you as it is very flexible and versatile but don't expect professional results under every circumstance.
  • Pros: -Elegant design -Great photos with flash -Flash is very powerful -Awesome close-up shots -versatile
  • Cons: -Easy to get smudgy photos -Zooming in makes stills blurry

takes great pictures, but seems to drain batteries

  • Summary: This camera is slim and takes a great picture. However, it seems to drain batteries if you leave the battery in the camera. We thought the battery was bad. So, we ordered another battery. The same thing happens. So, we have to constantly remove the battery when the camera is not in use. We now have two batteries, which helps if we find ourselves with a dead one.

Great for 1 year

J. Murphy "Clean Freak", Amazon
3 March 2011
  • Summary: I bought this camera for Christmas 2009. It worked perfectly for 1 year. Great photos, good video, long battery life, and super easy to use. After having the camera for 1 year I started to have a problem. The lens cover won't open when I turn the camera on. I have to turn the camera on and off multiple times or I have to use my finger to force it open. I have never dropped the camera or mishandled it. It is usually on a shelf away from my toddler's hands.

  • Summary: I was lucky to return this product for Walmart's excellent return policy. This is why I think everyone should buy things from walmart. The Camera has an excellent HD function that is superior than casio exilim FS10 that I tried earlier. It can also record nice footage at low light. But in terms of picture it wasn't as good as it should be in automatic settings.

  • Summary: If you want a good small camera; this is it. If you have large fingers or want an easy to find push button this would not be it. Had to return it due to the size of the function buttons.

Broke on me- Enough Said

Christopher Arguello "Chris726", Amazon
18 July 2010
  • Summary: What's the greatest thing about shopping at amazon? Reviews! Sadly this is the first product I ever bought from amazon with good reviews but an average product. Plain and simple the flash on my camera broke and the zoom is extremely HORRIBLE. Trust me, with this camera you CANNOT zoom at all if you want high quality pictures. Oddly, the major complaint about this camera was the HD recording and the background video noise it produces.

Ok camera

Blueflower77, Amazon
16 June 2010
  • Summary: To be honest, I bought this particular model pretty much based on the great reviews here on Amazon. I am not a photographer, but I own a high end DSLR and after that, I guess, maybe my point-and-shoot expectations were a little too high. I used to own a Sony point-and-shoot for many years that I loved, then got a Nikon DSLR, so this is my first time with Canon. And I am disappointed. It is my hope that I learn how to use this little camera better and get better pictures.

Safe bet for canon lovers, but....

Kathryn L. Catanese, Amazon
5 June 2010
  • Summary: The SD780IS is a great buy if you're looking for a pocket camera to take with you on a whim (just in case you feel the urge to snap a few shots). Its a canon so its easy to use and the pre-set modes are fun. I wasn't floored with the picture quality because the colors were way off in certain situations.

Not very rugged

Martin Gomez, Amazon
21 April 2010
  • Summary: It takes good photos and videos, but the real virtue of this camera is its portability. It also has a useful feature that I use all the time: you're only one button away from an exposure compensation control. The image stabilization feature works well and gives you decent low-light capability. The only downside, and the reason I can't recommend it, is that my camera is full of sensor dust after only 6 months of use. Now I'll admit, I don't coddle my cameras.
