Summary: I have the camera for a few days and my experience is sos so okay. It is not spectacular nor great but bad either.
The camera has a good interface on screen and the flash does its job once you have figured out working around some standard settings.
Summary: This is no doubt a great compact camera. I just want to point out a good alternative. I ordered an SD850 but returned it because I found the Canon A570IS was almost the same as the SD850, but at almost half the price. The only major differences are battery and size.
Summary: I love the size of this camera - great for travel. Hard to beat the options this camera offers for the money. Great battery life. I'm using a Transcend 8GB SD HC card and it's the only card I've needed. I took approximately 750 pictures and a dozen short videos, and only used about 4GB of space.
Summary: After researching many reviews for higher megapixel, larger LCD screen, decided on this model since it provided all the required features. Excellent product, originally would have selected the SD870, but that did not have an optical viewfinder.
Two thumbs up - save money - no need to get 2nd battery

Summary: This is an all around great camera. It works as described by other reviewers. The image stabilizer is great. The only thing that could be improved is the quality of the lens. But for the price of the camera, I recognize it's OK, and probably better that in other similar priced products.
Summary: The colors are fabulous, and the image stabilizer is wonderful. I can't speak for semi-pro photographers, but for someone like me that loves to take photos for pleasure, this is a good camera. The only complaint I have is that, as others have mentioned, this camera does not have a "wide angle" lens.
Summary: Since October I have been researching to find the fastest (for fast moving small kids) low light (for evening indoor pictures) P&S camera. I also know 99.9% of my prints will be 4x6 or 5x7, never bigger. And I want the red-eye reduction to work! I refuse to do touch-ups.
Summary: I really like this camera and immediately after receiving it in the mail, left for a picture-heavy vacation (literally about a half hour between getting the camera and leaving for my flight!).
Comparison of Canon Powershot SD850 to old the S500
27 October 2007
Summary: This review is a comparison between the newer Canon PowerShot SD850 IS and the older Powershot S500: I'm an avid casual photographer, and I used to own a Canon PowerShot S500 (not SD), which I bought 4 years ago.
Summary: This is my third digital camera and I'm amazed at how much better they keep getting. This camera's ability to shoot good quality pictures in near total darkness still impresses me. It boots up extremely quick and has excellent battery life.
