Canon Digital Ixus 850 IS

fidainc, ReviewStream
9 August 2014
  • Excerpt: I’ve always trusted Canon for my portable, cute digital photography needs. After handling so many cameras, I find that this IXUS 850 IS has to be the fastest in response in terms of its AF speed and shutter speed. Another thing deserved to be mention I think its the …

Another great Camera in the Canon Digital Elph line

A. Santiago Jr., Amazon
27 January 2008
  • Summary: I just spent a good 1/2 hour here reading reviews on the SD800 IS, and didn't agree with many of them so I had to write one myself. I have previously owned Canon's S400, S500 and SD550.

Best point and shoot camera ever - easy to use, fa

Linithiliel, ReviewView
11 December 2007
  • Conclusion: I think this is the best compact point and shoot camera that I have ever used. It is blazing fast and takes really nice sharp pictures.
  • Pros: You can start taking pictures almost immediately after you turn it on and review pictures just as easily. For point and shoot simplicity, you can easily snap pictures in the automatic or special mode such as for aquariums. I have some truly amazing Mandalay Bay Aquarium pictures once I switched t...
  • Cons: It has a pretty good night mode and fireworks mode, but it otherwise has very limited functionality and performance in low light photography. It is also limited in that you cannot use any supplemental top-mount flashes or lenses with it.

Red Eye Gone

Steve Consumer, Amazon
23 November 2007
  • Summary: I replaced my broken SD300 with the SD800IS two months ago and I love the new camera. I use it as a true "pocket" camera, as I did the sd200. I use the movie mode a lot. It's surprising how many little, fun videos you can take and people don't even know it.

Canon PowerShot SD800 Digital Camera

gemma10, ReviewStream
20 October 2007
  • Excerpt: With much excitement, 7 months ago I replaced my less-than-extraordinary digital camera with a new Canon PowerShot SD800 Digital Camera. As a strictly recreational digital camera user, I thought that my choice of this Canon would be ideal and fun to experience. On the positive side, the …

Any small digital camera is a mixture of features and compromises...

S. Nay, Amazon
20 October 2007
  • Summary: I've spent way too much time comparing the features on lots of ultra-compact digital cameras. I tried the Nikon S50, but the picture quality was pretty poor so I sent it back. This Canon was the largest and heaviest (and most expensive) that I was considering, but I went ahead and bought it because...

Love this camera!

  • Summary: I absolutely love this camera!! I used to have a Nikon coolpix but was tired of it because most of its pictures inside were blurry, and the flash would wipe the background off. This camera has yet to take a blurry picture!

Very nice.

Yehuda, Amazon

  • Summary: The wide angle (28 mm equiv) is beautiful -- much closer to the range your eye sees normally than the usual 35 mm equivalent. I'd read that the lens loses sharpness around the edges at its widest setting -- but if the loss is measurable, it is not noticeable. Don't worry about it.

Matches the product reviews I read before buying

D. Hock, Amazon
14 September 2007
  • Summary: This camera is exactly what I was anticipating when I bought. The reviews I read prior to my purchase mentioned the following negatives: o Flimsy plastic cover for power/usb data port o Good, but not great, low light performance.

For the size

Rachel A. Myers "mara", Amazon
14 September 2007
  • Summary: I bought this camera for my trip to China, and have been pleased with it. For the point and shoot cameras, its on the better end, with image stabilization and limited manual setting, it takes crisp high resolution pictures.
