  • 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

Good but with problems

  • 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.

Good and bad

  • 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.

A great product in a competitive market

  • 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.
  • Pros: Good quality and simple to use
  • Cons: Other products have superseeded it .

  • Summary: This is my third Canon Ixus and by far the most disappointing. I'm no expert on photography and simply want a reliable point and shoot camera that takes consistently good photographs.

Good camera, but vulnerable lens! Get a hard case!

Colin Wilson, Amazon
19 June 2008
  • 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).

Ceenguyen, Ciao

  • 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 .
  • Cons: A little bit heavy .
