Canon PowerShot SD880 IS (Digital IXUS 870 IS) review

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 SD870IS from late 2007 is clearly superior.
