Excerpt: I've had the Canon IXUS 800 IS for 2 weeks now and I love it. However, there is 1 thing that really disappoints me: the audio in the movies. It's simply awful. Lots of noise, very poor sensitivity. Coming from an Canon IXUS 4, I was bitterly surprised at seeing how this latter outperform the Canon IXUS 800 in this respect. A friend of mine who has also recently bought the 800 IS camera confirmed my opinion.
Summary: I got this used camera recently and so far I really like it. It is compact without being fragile, takes good pictures, and has the features I wanted. It is easy to use without having to refer to the manual constantly to change settings. The price was right so all in all, I am happy with the purchase.
Summary: Although not a big fan of early Canon digitals, images from friends convinced me that Canon had come a long way from its original crappy roots - and this camera doesn't disappoint although there are some cons as well as pro's (aren't there always?!): Pro's: **Very light **Sleek and stylish **Battery lasts a very long time - I've done a 4 day trip in Spain and a week in London before needing to charge the battery, and it will sit in the camera unused for up to 3 weeks...
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., but the Image Stabilization (IS) was good to use with the zoom. I have the gargoyles on the top of Notre Dame clearly, using the zoom from the sidewalk. I didn't have to climb endless stairs up the tower.
Summary: I have been waiting for this camera. It was difficult to get sharp pictures especially the macro shots with my previous camera being small, but this camera takes sharp pictures much more easily. I do not have to rest my arms on any solid objects to get jitter free pictures. Great camera to carry around for any snap shots.
