  • Conclusion: The SD780 IS, Canon's least-expensive HD-capable point-and-shooter, is probably smaller than many smartphones and takes excellent images.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality. Lower noise at high ISOs than previous generations. Records high-definition video. Mini HDMI-out. Small and thin. Fast operation. Sharp screen.
  • Cons: Small screen. Average amount of shutter lag. Viewfinder is tiny and useless.

Canon PowerShot SD780 IS Review

LAPTOP Magazine

  • Summary: In most regards, the $279 Canon PowerShot SD780 IS is a solid mid-range point-and-shoot: it has decent image quality, records HD video, and is one of the most attractive pocket cameras we've seen in a while. Some flaws, however, such as overexposed shots when using Macro and low-light performance, hold it back from a higher rating. But casual photographers might rather have a camera this tiny than one that excels at close-ups or low-light shooting.

  • Conclusion: The Canon PowerShot SD780 IS Digital ELPH aka Digital IXUS 100 is a stylish, small digital camera that has high-resolution, a HD movie mode and optical viewfinder. As you can probably tell, the SD780 won’t have any problems fitting into even the smallest of pockets, purses or bag compartments. It’s well-built and easy to hold and operate for most part, except the really tiny mode switch on the back.
  • Pros: Very good image quality below ISO 800; ISO 3200 usable for tiny 4 x 6 prints, Compact, stylish design with optical viewfinder, 3X lens is slightly wider than old lens; less distortion and fringing too (though see below), Fast camera performance (Except continuous shooting), Smart Auto and a decent selection of scene modes, 720p HD movie mode with sound; HDMI output for your movies, Good for people photos: face & blink detection, face self-timer, effective red-eye remo...
  • Cons: Lacks manual controls and a live histogram, Slow zoom lens (worse aperture range than old lens), Paltry continuous shooting frame rate (typical for a 12 MP camera), Tiny mode switch; flimsy memory card/battery door
