Unfortunately this camera is a complete disappointment for me. This was my first time with a Canon product - I can only say bad luck with my choice of model/camera. Nonetheless, with limited budget that can be allocated on gadgets like this next time I plan to take my chances with another brand. Problems: Auto focus problem - The camera has random focusing problems - which I tested and even asked several friends to verify. In the AiAF mode, loses the target focus area and focuses on the wrong ...

This camera is a big step down from the previous model, I should have kept it. The major disappointment is of course the image quality: grainy, noisy, not as sharp and definitively less pleasing to the eye. Canon also got rid of the time lapse movie. They also modified the menu, the digital macro mode is now in the scene modes. My Canon A720 which costed $100 less takes far better pictures. I will return it to the store. Canon, where are you going? Problems: All of the above and more. The ...

I am very disappointed with the very poor picture quality provided by this camera. In interiors (ISO 250 and above) the images are unacceptable grainy. Noise is noticeable even in exteriors with good light. I have used a SD700IS for three years with satisfactory results under different conditions. You buy a camera to take pictures (good pictures), reason for which this is the most important thing in the evaluation. The 880 is not an option if you are looking for a good point and shot camera. ...

At first I was dissapointed by the image quality of this camera. It had unacceptable noise at ISO 250 and higher. The noise manifested as fungus like white stripes on the image. Even at clear daylight images you could see this noise, while much cheaper camera's could make far better images. The sharpness of the images is very good. Canon does do some real good image processing. After 4 months however the lense sliding system broke and I sent it in for repair (That's why I only give a 3 star ...

Please note the blurry picture issue for many samples of this camera before considering the many positives for this camera. On the positive side, this model sports a nice 3" LCD on the back (if you can do without a viewfinder) and a fast image processor with minimal shutter button delay. The video mode is 30fps at VGA quality, and it seems nice except for the fact that its in MOV and not AVI format. There are specialty picture scenarios such as portrait, indoor, and even firecracker! I've ...

IQ was hardly any better than with my older Casio EX-Z850: The images contained way too much noise and less sharpness, especially under low light conditions (though they appeared more colorful). I also asked friends to tell, whether they prefered the canon or casio pictures and they had quite a hard time to decide (it ended about fifty fifty). Another nuisance: the built-in flash! It's too small, too weak and it needs one heck of a time to reload. If you didn't get your first picture right, ...

Very good video quality for this camera, the photo quality is 'ok', not great. Problems: Too much noise, my old Canon s40 produces better pictures.
