Canon Digital Ixus 850 IS
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.
Summary: I got this camera about a week ago to replace my old SD200 that died and I am having a ball with this little thing. I do a lot of photography so I need a camera that takes good, sharp pictures consistently and this camera really delivers. I'm absolutely in love with the image stabilizer. I can actually use the digital zoom and still get a sharp picture. I'm amazed. Another plus about the image stabilizer: you can take low light pictures much easier.
Summary: What a great camera! I am an ex-wedding photographer and am very picky about the equipment I buy. This camera produces beautiful images and downloads them very quickly to your computer using the included Canon software. Be sure and get a 1GB fast SD card...it pays off in fast image save times as well as image upload times. The 28MM eq. lens is very rare in this size camera as is the optical image stabilization system.
Wonderful camera...case could use a little improvement

Summary: First...A lot of other reviewers have talked about how 'cheap' or 'flimsy' this camera feels...I think I have a different take on this coming from a Mechanical Engineering background (and actually making similar products in consumer electronics) I had an old SD100 and decided to upgrade, and indeed the old SD100 'feels' like a tank, and this new one 'feels' flimsier...but I dont think it ACTUALLY is.
