  • Excerpt: I am happy with the IXUS 860 IS camera so far. The LCD screen is a big deal for reviewing pictures that you would potentially want to retake. The IS function is a handy functionality for a point-and-shoot. Also love the lens which allows you to capture more people in the shot!

Great Camera with surprising bonus feature for Youtubers (audio/video)

Amazon Customer, Amazon
21 August 2009
  • Summary: Hi, I see that there are 400+ reviews of this camera so I thought I'll try not to repeat the same comments. I have found a unique strength of this camera that I think is worth sharing (although admittedly it may only appeal to small subsection of users). First of all, I bought the camera initially for the birth of my daughter 18 months ago and have been astonished at it's functionality as a point and shoot camera.

Nice POS but Poor Lens

V. Pham, Amazon
1 March 2009
  • Summary: As a first time Canon owner I was pleased by the picture quality of the 870IS. It does everything I wanted a POS to do... except one small thing. This camera has broken on me twice in the span of 6 months with the same problems (lens error). After a while, the lens will not retract when turning off and then the auto-focus is permanently blurry.

Power(less)Shot

Overstock
7 January 2009
  • Summary: I read a great review for this product in a consumer magazine. It got high ratings for functionality and being user-friendly, in addition to taking great-looking photos. I don't know if it was because I purchased a refurbished camera or not, but the photos always looked pixelated (if I wanted anything bigger than a 5x8). Then, within a few uses, a thin, digital line appeared at the bottom of the screen. It got bigger every time I turned the camera on.

Some Great Features

  • Summary: Comments about Canon Canon PowerShot SD870: One thing I like about it is a faster shutter speed / focus so it can be used to capture right now action. One problem I had with it is that the lens would jam shut - it happened on two cameras. For my use at events the camera must not fail.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Good sized screen, Great Resolution, Nice Features and Settings
  • Cons: Extending Lens can Break

Great design and easy to work

  • Summary: Comments about Canon Canon PowerShot SD870: Canon did a great job with this camera. I really like the powershot. It’s not too big and not to small so someone with long or large hands can easily work it. I have tested it outdoors and indoors and the pictures look fabulous. I learned how to use it in about 15 minutes.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Excellent in Low Light, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life

Best wide angle point and shoot

Ralph D. Frantzreb II, Amazon
12 November 2008
  • Summary: I have been a loyal nikon customer for years. I have gone through 3 other nikons, always upgrading. when I first picked up this camera the quality of the product and it's images blew past that of every camera on display. 1. the wide angle lens allows you to increase those group shots from four or five to 8 or 9 w/o needing to back up ten feet. 2. once you begin to play around and figure out all of the settings/iso modes etc...

I bought two of these and they are a hit!

Manish Laxmikant, Amazon
2 November 2008
  • Summary: Cameras typically boast 10x, 12x, 18x optical zoom and that's fine for birdwatching and the like (no don't take portraits with that unless you like flat faces) but few point-and-shoot cameras offer a 28mm-equivalent wide angle lens, with Image Stabilization to boot. Buy this with a spare lenmar NB-5L equivalent battery, and a good capacity SD card - at least 2GB, and you won't be sorry at all. The 28mm wide lens can take excellent indoor shots.
