Excerpt: I LOVE this camera...had it for years and still preferred it over my husbands brand new Sony Digital Camera....catches everything, has a large screen to view pictures on and is still small enough even for my smallest of purses...surprisingly easy to figure out as well!
Excerpt: This was my first Canon P&S and more importantly, my first big name camera. I own a cheap non-name camera before, and this blow it out of the water. This is definitely compact by all of its definition. Despite being only 7 megapixel, this camera takes very sharp pictures, is very responsive, and has great battery life.
Excerpt: I got the Cannon SD800 camera last Christmas and took it with me on my European vacation. Since it is an SD camera, it is very small, yet has a very large LCD screen compared to most cameras of its size. Also, the optical image stabilization is a must. There have been many instances where I thought that I would not get the picture due to movement of the camera. However, to my surprise, the image stabilization worked flawlessly and helped produce crisp pictures.
Excerpt: Very pleased with this camera, if you want a bunch of features you have it but for most people just the ability to rotate and have the screen rotate is great, along with the simplicity of shooting a picture that turns out great with no effort or real skill. Like the stability control and the kids love the video shooting ability, which with a large card is quite significant.
Excerpt: The Canon PowerShot SD800 is an amazing camera for a point and shoot. I loved it until the day it got stolen from me on a cruise ship. The reason why I purchased the camera, compared to any other Canon was because it has a wide angle lens, which is rare with any of the other Canon SD point and shoots. Picture quality was great, and while there is some barrel effect, nothing too major for the average camera user.
Excerpt: I own a DSLR and this little Canon SD800is, and I find myself using the point and shoot at least twice as often as the DSLR. This fits in your pocket, takes incredible photos, and takes a beating. This camera has been with me on multiple international backpacking trips where it was really put through its paces being beat up in my pocket with no protection, used near spraying waterfalls, and dropped numerous times.
Canon PowerShot SD800 is perfect for families on the go

Excerpt: This Canon camera has probably been my favorite point and shoot camera that we've owned. It incorporates an easy zoom feature with the twist of the top button, simple on/off button, auto-focus as well as more settings than you'll probably ever need for day to day shots, but are fun to have. I especially prefer the higher ISO settings which allow you to focus on fine print (like a newspaper, etc). The viewing screen is relatively large and very easy to see.
Excerpt: I have had my Canon SD890IS Power Shot Digital Camera for a little over a year now, and I can honestly say its the best digital I have owned (This is my fourth one). There are many great features, but there are a few that truly stand out. First, The size of the camera is small enough where I can take photos with one hand and still have great pics. Coupled with that is the picture stabilization feature, reducing the number of blurred photos.
Excerpt: The Canon PowerShot SD800 IS Digital Camera is the best digital camera that I have ever owned. Sleek and affordable, this little beauty gives you the pictures that you want, when you want them. There are of functions behind this amazing camera that has many options for you to choose from. Shoot, zoom, flash and even a stabilizer that stops the camera shakes, ensures you of quality pictures all of the time.
Excerpt: I have upgraded to Canon Powershot SD800 from my Canon powershot SD300. Powershot SD800 IS is an ultimate compact and very stylish metal body with wide angle, stabilized zoom, anti-noise filter and good speed. Canon bundles a 16MB memory card with the SD800, which would hold 4-5 photos with 5 mega pixel setting. SD800 can use Secure Digital (SD) and MultiMedia (MMC) cards, as well as the new SDHC format. I have bought a 8GB SDHC card and its very fast.
