Canon IXUS 800 IS Digital Camera
4 May 2008
Excerpt: It has been almost two years since my husband and I purchased our very first digital camera. We chose the Canon IXUS 800 IS for a lot of reasons. First, though for the size it is heavy but it’s good for taking photographs. In a way it has stability. …
Excerpt: If you are looking for a digital camera IXUS 800 IS from canon is worth the shot. I have been using it for past one year and it has never given me any trouble. It comes with 16 MB memory card and a battery charger with a battery pack …
Excerpt: Canon SD700,This is my first digital camera.I made quite a research on all the options before getting this one in February, and i am quite happy with my choice now. First things first, the camera has been amazing in the outdoors,It has got a good optical and digital zoom and …
Summary: Here's a story for you. Someone dropped my SD700 from five feet onto a metal floor while the lens was fully extended. The camera landed on the lens, bouncing once. When I picked it up, one of the lens components was crooked.
Pros: - Great picture quality - Image stabilization works great in low-light - VERY good video quality
Summary: I took this camera to Paris the end of April '07 after only having the camera a couple of weeks. I have some of the best pictures I have ever taken on a vacation! Clear, crisp, close up or far away, they are great. I can't say I was always positioned correctly - etc.
Summary: Still overall super camera. I have taken some pictures that I would swear a professional took if I didn't remember taking them. That has never happened to me before this camera. I seriously can't believe how awesome some of my pictures have come out, and I am a complete photography beginner.
Pros: Takes great pictures in the automatic mode, so you really can just point and shoot, Long lasting battery, The screen adjusts to show the picture upright no matter which way you hold it (neato!), Small, Takes good video, Scene modes are cool (especially color accent), Start up is super quick, and ...
Cons: Color swap only works okay, Good night pictures require a lot of messing with the manual settings (not so easy for the beginner) and then they still have a little graininess
Pros: This is a GREAT camera and I am so please with the deal I received from Newegg. My favorite feature is the color accent where it pulls out one color of your choosing in the picture and then makes everything else black and white.
Summary: With a 2 GB sd ram card you can take about 30 minutes of very high quality videos. I took it on a trip to Hong Kong and China. It is cheaper to buy it from newegg than it would have been to buy it at the discount stores in Hong Kong.
Pros: Simple, sharp pictures. Amazing videos with image stabilization
Cons: Has a low battery warning indicator but does not have a battery gauge. I am never sure when I have to charge it.
Pros: I have only had the camera for one week, but i have taken hundreds of pictures testing it out. IS: Is amazing, you had to shake radically in order to get any blur at all. Great for small cameras. Also, the shipping, i have ordered hundreds of things, hands down fastest shipping ever from newegg. ...
Cons: The optical finder is kind of in a weird position, you gotta like push your nose on the screen to use it. Also, the manual options are not very deep. Granted, this is great functionality for what 90% of users use it for. I bought this for the wife, I'm spoiled by my G6.
