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...
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: 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.

Summary: I bought this camera in Nov 2007, along with the Canon DCC-70 Leather case (sold by Canon specifically for this camera). I find the picture quality is very good; the colors are vivid, the large screen is wonderful, the wide-angle on the lens is very useful (that's why I chose this camera).
Excerpt: I love this camera! from features to functions to the design of it! Now compared to the Sony i hate to admit this but this camera is better. The image is clear and it has an auto focus so when the camera moves slightly the picture wouldn't be blurry.
Pros: Clear images, auto focus, brilliant video playback .
