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
Summary: As a former photojournalist I would recommend this camera when you don't want to carry around your Mark III or D3 with you for an outing with the family.
Pros: The size and wide angle are great. The quality of ISO at 800 is good too.
Cons: I received a defective unit. The yellow autofocus light will not turn off, even though I have it off in the menu. Can anyone else verify this problem with their units? I called Canon and they said it is not supposed to do that.
Summary: I really wanted to like this camera. The large 3" screen and quick handling are great. Very easy to use. I chose this model for the 28mm wide angle lens which worked very well. The main problem I had was with exposure, i.e. blown out whites.
Summary: I've owned the SD870 for about 3 weeks now and about 1000 Plus photos and 100 plus short video clips on a recent 2 week cruise to Russia. The wide angle lens is very nice and one of the main reason I bought the camera. The photos tend to be good with some mixed results that I'll comment on.
Excerpt: The problem in reviewing any digital camcorder/camera is that it has to compete with the prevalence of smartphones . In the same way that portable music players are a victim of the success of integrated mobile phones. So for product in this market to really stand out it has to be something special.
Excerpt: its worth its price....handling is easy...looks attractive...jus bought it today...was cheking it out all the time...the picture quality is so good and the image we get is crystal clear....luve it a lot because its mine....would recomend it foe my friend for sure...
Summary: It feels great when I first got it, it took really well picture The camera was easy to use, nice screen though Had great fun with it But after a while , there's just something wrong with quality It looks pretty much the same but it doesn't look as sharp as before I've clean then lens and the picture...
