Canon Powershot SD770 IS


$280.00 Released March, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Excellent form factor. Nice size, pocketable, big shutter button, nice metallic finish. Like a deck of cards. Very fast startup time and time between shots because of DIGIC III. Simple to use. Minimalist design and UI.

The Cons:MJPEG video compression instead of better MPEG4 that cameras are moving to. Picture quality doesn't look good when hooked up to TV via RCA cable. Sound quality isn't the best in video mode.

The Canon Powershot SD770 IS is modelled after the ELPH design and is meant to provide high-quality performance with a compact body and size. It features a 10 megapixel CCD and a 3x optical image-stabilized zoom along with Face Detection, Red Eye Detection and Motion Detection technology for reducing blur and capturing accurate colour.

Just picked this up for $200 at the local Futureshop along with a $20 8GB Class 6 SD card (from Canada Computers). It's a very good price for a sweet little point and shoot. I'll post more after I play around with it a bit.
