Canon IXUS 870 IS

 

Canon is trying to regain its market lead with some impressive new cameras, like this great 10MP ultra-compact.

The Canon IXUS 870 IS is a superbly well made and very attractive luxury ultra-compact with excellent performance, a useful zoom range, an outstandingly good LCD monitor and superb image quality. It's a little light on features, but the ones that it...

Canon PowerShot SD880 IS review

 

Part of Canon's Digital Elph family, the camera shoots 10Mp photos, has 4x optical zoom, and supports ISO settings up to 3,200. The "IS" designation at the end of the name refers to the camera's optical image stabilization mode.

If you're looking for a good quality point-and-shoot camera. consider the Canon PowerShot SD880 IS. It's easy to use and small enough to fit in a shirt pocket, while delivering high-resolution photos with great colour and detail.

Canon SD880 IS Digital Elph review

 

The Canon SD880 IS Digital Elph's wide-angle capability should strike a chord with anyone who's combed camera catalogues in search of the perfect point-and-shoot - 28mm is a rare trait indeed. Even the pricier SD990 IS, Canon's other new addition to...

All told, the Canon SD880 IS Digital Elph is one of the best point-and-shoot cameras we've seen in its price range. If you don't mind the extra ounces and the lack of manual functions (it is a point-and-shoot, after all), you'll be smitten with this...

Canon PowerShot SD880 IS review

 

At the time of this review, the Canon PowerShot Digital Elph line featured no fewer than 10 models--not even including lingering older models--so deciphering what makes one better or different than another gets tricky ( here's our succinct breakdown )....

Excellent photo quality for its class; optical image stabilization; pleasing interface and design; wide-angle lens.

Mode dial spins a bit too freely; button positioning might bother some users; very noticeable fringing.

Simply put, the Canon PowerShot SD880 IS is an excellent point-and-shoot camera.

Canon SD880 IS Digital Elph review

 

Not only is the Canon SD880 IS Digital Elph stylish, durable, and exceptionally easy to use, it also takes great pictures and provides 28mm of wide-angle bliss.

Canon IXUS 870 IS

 

Compact camera with 3in screen and 28mm wide lens.

Sharp shots, minimal chromatic aberration, wide-angle lens, 3in display

Some minor noise issues

A strong all-purpose compact camera, Canon's IXUS 870 IS will suit users looking for a unit with a wide-angle lens, a big screen and good image quality.
