ordinary point and shoot camera with durable build

Excerpt: canon powershot sd800 IS is an ordinary everyday use camera, you just point and shoot, for an amature user like me, it fulfills my purpose of keeping some digit memories. The size of the photo is already big enough for a big print (like 10 inches), and the result of the photo is usually acceptable with enough details. The IS (image stabilizer) is a great add on to prevent the blurness during the shoot.
Excerpt: The Canon - PowerShot SD 850 IS Digital Camera is amazing! It is so easy to use, and fast click to capture. Pocket sized is good. The pictures are GREAT quality. The video it records is amazing. it zooms in FAR. Good name brand. But the photos can be grainey if they are took inside. and sometimes autofocus can be inaccurate. i love the beautiful pictures it takes in all the different kinds of weather. it is very easy to use, easy instructions.
Summary: After a few comments I decided to rewrite my review and clarify a few things. This is my 3rd Canon digital Powershot camera. My first was a S110 (2 mega pixle camera) that I bought in 2002. My second was a S410 (4 mega pixle camera) that my wife gave to me in 2004. (I'll refer to these as S series). In addition I've regularly used several profesional SLRs in the past including the Nikon D1-X.
Summary: I'd highly recommend thinking twice before buying this camera. The "sleek design" leaves on thinking it looks great, the rounded edges over the more boxy models. However, this leaves the camera less stable and hard to get a hold of. I owned this camera for all of four weeks and my husband dropped it taking it out of his pocket. I owned the PowerShot 400 for five years, am fairly clumsy, and yet never once dropped it.
Summary: The purchase of the Cannon sd 850 elph marks the 6th time we have purchased a Canon digital elph over the past few years. We continue to purchase these little cameras because, for the most part, we are not disappointed by these finely made and well conceived little cameras. Our photos get increasingly better as we learn to use the improved features that we discover on the new models.
Summary: Ive had the 950is for a while now and i'm still not sure about it. No doubting the sexiness of it and a plethora of features, but so far all of the photos ive taken have looked so "soft", even on superfine setting. With all of the rave reviews on here i'm left wondering whether i've got a duff one. I'm having to sharpen every single photo using editing software to get anything like the same clarity i got from my old 4mp Samsung.
Summary: I had high hopes for the Canon as a replacement for an aging Pentax Optio 5i, but it has not really delivered. Yes, the 8MB is higher quality, and there are more tools and settings to play with. But for a point a squirt camera there really isn't that much difference. The bad points are that I found the user interface to be too complicated and the scroll wheel control a bit fiddly.
Summary: Eccomi qui cari amici e lettori , oggi vorrei presentarvi questa bella fotocamera compatta. Si tratta della Canon IXUS 950 IS . COME SI PRESENTA Trovo che il modo in cui si presenta questa macchinetta sia molto gradevole : non è affatto appariscente , ma in compenso è parecchio elegante e giovanile .
