Canon’s PowerShot SD880 combines a broad feature set into a pocket-sized package to let you capture the world around you. 10.0 megapixels of imaging power give you the ability to create photos with incredible quality and clarity. The 28mm wide-angle lens lets you take in your surroundings with image area equal to a 35mm film camera. Use the 4x optical zoom to get closer to your subject and count on optical image stabilization to ensure sharp images even when you’re following the action. The 3-inch PureColor II LCD lets you see your image as the camera sees it – enabling you to catch the perfect moment.

It offers faster, more accurate noise reduction at higher ISO speeds, and incorporates iSAPS technology to improve image focus along with color balance. The New Face Self-Timer allows you to get into the picture with the camera waiting until it recognizes an additional face before taking the shot.

Red-eye can be eliminated automatically or manually within the camera. Additional settings let you take control of the entire picture-taking process with 19 shooting modes including 16 special scene options. Printing straight from the camera on select SELPHY and PIXMA photo printers. Life happens – capture it with the PowerShot SD880.

1 out of 5 eggsCanon SD880

Pros: Poor performance for the flash light. Believe me, before 1 year warranty, the camera flash light was burned and I sent it Canon to fix and pay for the S&H and now the flash light is burn again after 6 months. Not worth it to own... Please do not buy this SD880! Newegg does not cover for all fixing charges...

Cons: the product is not good at all....

5 out of 5 eggsSuper camera

Pros: Great point and shoot. Controls are more tactile and responsive than the SD870IS. Wide angle is super. Super picture quality.

Cons: Like all small point and shoots they work best in good lighting.

Other Thoughts: I've got a nikon slr which I like best in that format, but for a point and shoot Canon seems to have the best PQ.

5 out of 5 eggsBest all around after much research and trial

Pros: I was looking for a camera to complement my SLR. I have two boys under age 5 and wanted something I could easily take with me when the SLR was too big. This would be in very active settings when the boys wouldn't stand still, but I needed the shot. The camera needed to be very portable, very quick to focus and shoot, good in low light or w/o flash, and durable. After researching on line for a few days I chose the Canon SD series and Sony (T and W series). I considered Samsung (good all around) and Fuji (good in low light), but after reading more and using them in the store (I took pictures of my kids in the store to evaluate speed and flexibility), I decided eliminated them. I was ready to sacrifice a little photo quality for speed reasoning that I'd rather have a less than perfect shot vice miss the shot. I got the Sony DSC-T77, the DSC-W170 as well as the Canon SD880IS and strated taking pictures. The Canon takes the best movies. (cont'd in other)

Cons: I captured some photos with the Sony T-77 at the kids museum that the Canon was too slow to get, but only 2 or three out of the entire bunch of 150+. The Sony T-77 is better than the Canon at focusing on a specific subject when there are many arrayed in depth (such as at a long craft table) since you can touch the kid you want to focus on on the touchscreen and the Sony will focus there. On the Canon you have to hope that it will focus on the right kid. It rarely did, but the resultant shots were not perceptably worse than the Sony unless blown up to large scale. The Sony did very slightly better in low light without a flash. Both took bad pics in this setting, but the Sony was slightly more recognizable. The Canon is twice as thick as the T-77, but not much more uncomfortable to carry in a pocket. The Canon flash tends to be too powerful and wash out subjects more than the Sony and can't be scaled down.

Other Thoughts: The Canon SD880IS movies rival my camcorder. They are head and shoulders better than the Sony's. Only the T77 and SD880IS could use the zoom while filming. The SD880IS also takes better pictures than the Sonys. It is hard to tell unless you blow the pictues up or zoom past 40%, but the difference goes from negligible to the Canon being much better depending on the shot. The Sony was better on few shots. I took 150 pics apiece in various conditions with various settingson the T77 and Canon at a kids museum. The two camera's pictures from there were almost exactly the same. The Canon took slightly better pictures and much better movies. If I though the cameras might not be quick enough in a scene, I started just taking movies with the Canon. The Canon was much easier to use with a computer. It is SD/SDHC, also works as an SD drive, SDHC is much cheaper than Memory Stick, and compatable with all my devices. The Canon battery lasts 2-3 times longer than the T77 and charges twice as fast.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Camera!

Pros: Replaced my Canon SD 750 model with this one & it is great! Has a lot more features and is a bit faster. As with all the ELPH models you have to be careful not to drop them!! In addition, NEWEGG is a great online vendor - I have always been happy with thier price and fast shipping. Thanks.

Cons: None yet.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Camera

Pros: Quick startup
Great red-eye reduction
minimal delay between shots

Cons: none yet

Other Thoughts: Bought this camera to upgrade from my Canon A710is which has horrendous red-eye reduction, I cant tell you how many shots of my 2 year old are ruined because of the red-eye. Well no more with the Canon SD880IS, it detects the red-eye after the shot is taken and fixes it in in camera. Plus startup to first shot is extremely quick, probably about a second. Overall I am very satisfied with this camera and would highly recommend it.

5 out of 5 eggsNewegg the best - 2-Day Shipping

Pros: This is a great little camera because it allows you to have lots of control on how you want to take your photo. You can switch into manual settings and automatic settings, and customize the image you want with multiple features. Its wide angle lens is great for capturing a professional level photo, and the image stabilization feature captures the moment. The screen is a great size for viewing the images. And the battery lasts a long time too. Compared to carrying a big bulky SLR, the sd880is is easy to carry around in your pocket. I have had this camera for one weeks now and I love it. I don't think you could go wrong with this cool little camera

Cons: non

5 out of 5 eggsFast processing & shipping

Pros: I purchased this camera because a friend has one and my wife has the 870. It's no doubt the best compact/ultra compact camera made IMHO. I have a DSLR but wanted a small camera with a wide angle lens. Hard to beat Canon.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Purchased with the 15% PayPal cash credit, free 8 MB card and case which made the deal to good to pass up. The gold & brown is different and really looks nice.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Camera! Great Buy

Pros: The camera is great. It is small, compact, and light. The picture quality is amazing. Just point and shoot and the pictures are great, every time. It is very easy to use. I just opened the box and started taking pictures. There are a lot of great features on the camera which makes picture taking even better. Canon is a great name and this camera lives up to the Canon name. I would recommend this camera to everyone I know. Don't bother looking for any other camera this is the one. Trust me.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Awesome this camera.
