Canon PowerShot SD870 IS Review

Digitaltrends
5 May 2008
  • Conclusion: Since this is a fairly new camera, the SD870 IS is selling for just slightly less than $399 USD list, while the SD850 IS costs under $350 USD. For this reviewer, the 28mm lens makes it worth the difference; the larger LCD screen is just icing on a yummy cake.

  • Cons: AiAF/Face detection a little haphazard, Occasional tendency to ignore (and overexpose) bright regions, Touch wheel slightly awkward, Image quality suffers above ISO 400 due to noise and noise reduction issues, Easily scratched and scuffed, Manual control limited, Average battery life
