Canon PowerShot SD780 IS (Digital IXUS 100 IS) review

Excellent pictures and superb video quality. I don't understand the negative comments I have seen from other users. Perhaps they should stick to good old Kodak Instamatics (lol). In any case, one should take into account that it is an ultra compact and should not compare features with DSLRs. Let's be fair about it. I got an underwater housing for it from Canon and they whole package is barely larger than some other compacts we find in the market. Well done Canon, well done!!!

P.S. Another plus for those who are interested is that the camera is in the PTLens database!!! A great program for correcting minor faults in the images.


My only regret is that I would like the lens to be slightly wider. Otherwise, I have had no problems with it so far and once I got used the the Canon menus I am totally happy with it.
