  • Conclusion: The SD870 IS follows in the footsteps of some highly regarded cameras so it's understandable that Canon has chosen not to tinker too much with a successful formula. The camera's image quality is generally very good, especially considering its use of a genuinely wideangle lens. A reasonable amount of manual control for what is ostensibly a point and shoot camera means that occasional metering difficulty in tricky scenes can be compensated for, but does require the user to...
  • Pros: Good image quality (at lower ISO settings), Accurate metering in the majority of situations, Very useful lens range with surprisingly good edge-to-edge performance, Useful and adaptable Auto ISO-shift function, Handy macro performance at wide end of lens, Large, bright, clear screen, Looks and feels well designed, handling better than expected, Feels fast and responsive in use, Superb build quality and finish, Direct print button can be customized into something more ...
  • 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

  • Conclusion: Canon IXUS 860 IS digital camera The Canon Digital IXUS 860 IS digital camera can lean on the success of its ancestors and that's what it does of course. The Canon IXUS 860 IS camera is faithful to the concept that brought Canon a lot of success over the past few years. A safe way maybe for Canon and why not? Why change a successful concept that proved to be great? The image quality is excellent and there are no complaints about the equipment.

  • Summary: A stylish slimline digicam with image stabilisation, automatic face detection and in-camera red-eye correction.Canon's Ixus 860 IS replaces the Ixus 850 IS model but offers slightly higher resolution for a lower price. The 850 IS's optical viewfinder has been dispensed with, in favour of the new model's larger, 3.0-inch LCD monitor. Continuous shooting speeds are slightly slower in the 860 IS, which has a top burst rate of 1.3 Large/Fine JPEG frames/second.

Canon Digital IXUS 860 IS Review

LetsGoDigital
24 January 2013
  • Conclusion: De Canon Digital IXUS 860 IS camera is zijn geld waard. De kleine tekortkomingen zijn weliswaar zichtbaar in de technische testen; in de praktijk zijn deze nauwelijks terug te vinden in de opname. Canon heeft wederom een fraai IXUS model in het assortiment en vervolgt daarmee zijn succesvolle weg in het behoud van een indrukwekkend marktaandeel.
