*Disappointing sharpness in videos, stills seemed fine.* I upgraded to this from an IXUS 80 IS (Powershot SD1100 IS). The 720P video appealed, and being H.264 at almost 25 megabit it theoretically has better technical capabilities of many professional video cameras. You can at least trust that in terms of compression artefacts (blocking and mosquito noise), your camera will be a step ahead of the pack. Of course, it still has the lens and single sensor of a cheap compact digital camera, so ...

However under normal light the resolution of the camera is sensational for its small size. Love to use it for portraits in daylight or with flash.

I bought it for me, but I wasn't too happy with the image quality, so I gave it away (as a gift to a relative, it is her first digital camera, so I'm sure she won't be pixelpeeping, she'll be using the camera for small prints). I think HD video is just a gimmick since it's 1. noisy indoors 2. prone to highlight clipping (overexposure) in bright sunshine A tip: buy SD880 (Ixus 870) instead. Better design, larger LCD and better photographs. No HD video tho'...Nothing's perfect Problems: 1. ...
