Point and Shoot while cycling
Jun 23, 2008

I have started doing quite a bit of cycling lately, with the Cherohala Challenge being the ride I participated this past weekend. Most of the time I don't want to stop for picture taking and instead, one-hand the camera (older Sony P&S). I want to get a newer, lighter, and faster operating P&S and, have decided on the Canon Elf since it has a great reputation.

Canon makes one model of the Elf as a SD-750 and, a near identical model named SD-770IS with optical image stabilization(and maybe a few other features). Both are light and relatively thin.

I would think the optical stabilization would be beneficial however, before I buy the 770IS I thought I would ask the question in case I'm missing something. Does this optical stabilization have any drawbacks? Most all pictures will be taken in daylight so, low light is of little concern.
