  • 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 fe...

Canon PowerShot SD870 IS Review

Digitaltrends
23 September 2007
  • 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.
  • Pros: 8MP; 3-inch LCD; wider-angle shooting
  • Cons: Not many manual options
