I agree entirely with the previous review and believe that if you want decent digital pictures you have to go the -expensive- DSLR road. However, when I needed a camera for taking underwater pictures I opted for a P&S because of the ridiculous price of reflex cameras underwater cases and lens ports (often more than the camera and lens together). I tried the Fuji F31 first, because of the good reviews this camera gets on forums: huge disappointment (lots of purple fringing, highlight clipping, ...

After doing a ton of research and buying/returning at least 3 cameras (sorry Best Buy) I came to realize that you will kill your self trying to get the quality of a SLR out of a point and shoot. But keep in mind it is light that creates an exposure (thus Medium format out does a 35mm, in film land). In order to make these cameras fit into your pocket they have made the sensors smaller (I’m talking CCD, to hell with Mega Pixel; we had enough MPs in 2004). This camera sports a 1/1.8" ...

I was choosing between the Canon SD800 and this camera. Image stabilization is not really a make or break for me and the camera rarely takes blurry shots if any. It's a good camera and I love the LCD color display and the color composition is GREAT. This was an upgrade for me from an Olympus D555 and also a Sony Cybershot DSC T7. For a beginner, it's an excellent point & shoot and auto mode captures great photos. Problems: If you are looking for MANUAL mode.. this camera has a false ...

Love this camera. Love titanium body! Image quality is superb. I had A400 and got stolen and this is a major upgrade for me. It's very easy to use and small, 10 mega pixels, SDHC card compatible, 1024 x 768 movie mode, useful slow shutter speed/ Continuous Shooting mode, ISO1600(also ISO 3200 on the scene mode) is not good as what I expected but I don't think not bad at all if you try black/white/sepia shooting mode. I know SD900 does not come with image stabilizer but try use a viewfinder ...

Bought my one 3 weeks ago, have got now over 1000 pictures and still happy with that new toy. It is suitable for my pocket, for my hand and that´s enough. I always carry a spare battery with me and that means no break at all for shooting. Problems: None.

After having only good experiences with Canon, I replaced my Sony compact with SD900 and use it along with a Canon SLR. Problems: Big problem: No battery level indicator. Even the oldest and simplest cameras had it and among all the new gimmicks, Canon decided discard this essential feature. When the battery is exhausted, the warning arrives only minutes before the camera becomes useless. Their support team gave the usual pseudo-polite replies but without offering any remedy or logic or ...

I first purchased the Canon SD900. It was a good camera, but needs image stabilization. If you are taking still shots in fair to good lighting it is a good camera. Well, with 4 kids (three of them 2 year old triplets), life does not stand still for a picture. I took the SD900 back and got the SD800IS. Best choice I have ever made. The image stabilization is great. I can chase the kids around taking pictures and they are very clear. Both the 900 and the 800 have a fair amount of red eye in ...

I got a Canon sd 900 few weeks ago; it's feel like a one solid piece of pure metal (titanium) made for one of the best cameras and lenses makers. Image quality is superb in every situation and environment, intuitive controls and easy to learn menu. Someone said sd 800 "is" with wide angle? well... not everybody needs a wide lens unless you gonna take a full view of a bridge. The 900 looks beauty and expensive ----a lot more than 800 is----. Moreover I couldn't find the "great" improvement of ...
