Cannon digital camera
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I have a cannon for 2 years now. Picture quality is good bit cannot shoot panoramic views. Not turning on the flash gives a blurred quality to the pictures. Battery dies out really fast. Easy to transfer images from. Cannot take long videos. prefer my iphone camera to this at times due to ease of carrying it in pocket.
Excerpt: This camera does a satisfactory job at taking photos but it is not amazing. I'm no photographer so I wanted something that I can point and shoot to capture life's moments; something simple. The photo's that I get from this camera leave much to be wanted. The autofocus is hit and miss as 50/50 pictures are blurred. Then if I'm using the camera indoors, the pictures come out too dark even with flash. Then it takes too much time capturing an image!

Excerpt: This was my 2nd point and shoot digital camera and led me to loving Canon products! My first one was an Olympus digitial camera and it did not even record sound in video mode! what a drag! thus, i made sure this one captured audio! Granted this was before HD came out, so the video is not that great in comparison, but good for the time! Pictures snapped quickly and the zoom and playback was very easy.
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.
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
